Estancia La Candelaria

Top 10 Castle Hotels Worldwide

Estancia La Candelaria in Lobos, Argentina


Estancia La Candelaria

Estancia La Candelaria is not your typical South American ranch. Located in the Pampas just an hour outside Buenos Aires, this estate is home to its own French-style castle. Inspired by a royal château in Normandy, this lodging offers 10 guest rooms and suites decorated in tasteful Regency style. These accommodations complement a country-chic boutique hotel, charming freestanding forest bungalows and a private two-story suite in a circular brick windmill. Featuring an estimated 240 species of trees, the surrounding 100-hectare park was designed by the famed landscape artist Carlos Thays and now accommodates polo, horseback riding and gaucho festivals with traditional cuisine and folk dancing.
