  • Beschreibung


    We live in a horse ranch, which is located about 10 km from the city center of Mendoza, in the countryside, at the foothills of the Andes. Mendoza is the centre of the largest wine region in Argentina. It welcomes tourists all year long and offers plenty of activities and touristic attractions.

    Our team loves working with horses in the Argentinian tradition. We offer to the (local & international) tourists horse rides, that end with the typical local barbecues (asados).

    We have about 35 horses, but also dogs, rabbits, pigs and chickens.

    Javier (38 years old, Argentinian) has grown up in this countryside and has worked for the past 10 years offering horse rides. Caroline (37 years old, Belgian) has helped him in his project for the past few years. They both speak Spanish, English and French. They have a 4 year old girl, Emilia, and a 2 year old boy, Diego.
