  • Description


    My mother and I live in a 4 hectar ranch in the rural area of Vicente Casares, a little town in Cañuelas. It´s 50 km from the capital of Buenos Aires, which is easy to reach by bus.
    My mother and I are relaxed and enjoy to share the company of friends and family that come every now and then to ranch. I love nature and have knowledge in organic farming and indian taming. We are looking forward in meeting new friends and share experiences!
    We have 7 horses with indian dressage or taming, which is based in the construction of a trust relationship with no violence. We also have one cow, 30 chickens with chicks, three ducks and two geese that live free in the ranch. There are also 4 dogs and 4 cats.
