A room at Estancia la Candelaria in Lobos, Argentina

Estancia la Candelaria is not your typical South American ranch. Located in the pampas of Argentina just an hour outside Buenos Aires, this estate is home to a French-style castle. Inspired by a royal château in Normandy, the building now serves as a lodging with ten guest rooms and suites decorated in historic style. These accommodations complement a country chic hotel, charming freestanding forest bungalows and a private two-story suite in a unique circular brick windmill. Interior design ranges from classical to modern and playful, while incorporating original details such as oak floors. Featuring an estimated 240 species of trees, the surrounding 100-hectare park was designed by French landscape artist Carlos Thays and now accommodates polo, horseback riding and gaucho festivals with traditional cuisine and folk dancing. Meals showcase Argentine classics, including asados and empanadas you'll not soon forget.
