We Welcome you to Our Home; La Ernestina
Built alongside the existing Estancia (Ranch) buildings, our cozy boutique accommodation gives you the opportunity to stay on a working merino sheep farm. This is our home and we enjoy the chance to show you this unique part of the world.
The rooms are configured as twin shares or double beds. If you wish to add another bed to the room that typically can be arranged. Each room has an ensuite with a shower (hot and cold running water), hand basin and toilet. Each room has a gas heater and during the evenings the generator supplies power for charging your devices.
With only six rooms for guests, our groups are small and this also allows us to all dine together each evening. Each night the food is prepared on site by our local team who pride themselves on delivering food that is not only satisfying, but which is of a high caliber.
Please be aware that as Estancia La Ernestina is more than 70 km from the nearest village we have only limited wifi capabilities (emails only, no internet browsing and only when the generator is running).
But the good thing is that this makes for a valid excuse to get away from the stress of being connected; tell your boss that you will be ‘off the grid’ and let the adventure begin! (But, we do encourage you to download any books, files or software you think you may want during your stay, such as the bird identification app).
Parking & Using your Vehicle
There is ample parking at La Ernestina. Please note that you will not be able to take your own vehicle on the excursions. This is because of your own insurance (it likely won’t cover ‘off road’ trips), but also for our own liabilities. We have sturdy Land Rovers (or similar) and our team will drive you when we go on excursions.
We take the guests who are staying with us on daily excursions to areas that the public can not reach. We have over a century of family knowledge about where the wildlife can be found. Come stay, unwind and enjoy nature at Estancia La Ernestina. You can view some images from our excursions and learn about what what clothes to wear and what camera gear to bring and when is the best time to see the wildlife on other sections of our website.
