Estancia Santa Cecilia Ranch, Argentina

High in the north east corner of Argentina, close to the borders of Brazil and Paraguay, lies the rich, fascinating province of Misiones. There’s a clue in the name; Misiones is a region famed for the ruins of its Jesuit missions, monasteries and churches. It’s also beautiful in its own right; travelling across vast green plains, past mirror-like lakes and impressive hills will bring you to the eighth wonder of the world. A must-see – the fabulous Iguazu Falls.

And at the heart of Misiones is Santa Cecilia. An archetypal Argentine estancia, set in rolling hills and surrounded by ancient trees and the sights, sounds and smells of nature. The perfect place to relax and experience rural Argentina at its best.
