La Sofía is a colonial-style ranch with six spacious, comfortable and welcoming en-suite rooms that invite our guests to relax. The trademark of our boutique hotel is our passionate attention to detail and outstanding customer service.
The outdoor pool is located next to the polo fields, with open views of the Pampa. A bar service is offered throughout the day.
The view and the silence of the countryside, the whisper of the leaves, the sound of the cicadas, the neighing and galloping of the horses, the singing of the birds... a perfect place to relax and enjoy, get a massage, take a ride on a bike or read a book under a tree.
At La Sofia we love good food and we appreciate a good glass of wine. That is why we create our dishes with great dedication and go out of our way to provide the best home-made regional cuisine to our guests.
Marcos is a passionate and authentic amateur chef who takes pleasure in personally supervising the meat cutting and everything that happens in the kitchen.
His irresistible beefsteaks have inspired many guests to describe them as: “The best I´ve ever had!” To ensure our guests have a perfect culinary experience we offer homemade bread and jam in the morning, and Argentine beef, empanadas combined with a selection of regional wines from our private wine cellar and vegetables, very often right out of our organic garden.
At tea time Silke sometimes surprises her guests with delicious German family recipes.

It’s actually been our guests - bird lovers - who have taught us the variety and quantity of birds to be observed at Estancia La Sofia. The preservation of pure nature attracts numerous species. Early mornings seem a concert. We have a Suite on the second floor, surrounded by the birds singing in the morning, which actually therefore is called The Birds' Suite.
The owl couple lives next to the Polo field and during the summers the Colibri or Hummingbird is around the flowers. The impressive and massive houses of the hornero bird can be observed in trees and fence posts.
