El Colibrí: Cordoba’s Best with FriendsTravel.com

El Colibrí: Cordoba’s Best

Once in a great while, a special place is added to the landscape. El Colibrí is just such a place—an instant tradition. This new estancia has enlivened the rolling pampas of Cordoba, inviting a new generation of guests and receiving them with warmth and charm.

El Colibrí is the creation of Raoul and Stéphanie Fenestraz, whose family has a long heritage of operating fine French hotels. In order to make the posada look and feel like an Argentinean estancia at the beginning of the 20th century, they traveled around the country for over a year, searching for the best craftsmen, the finest materials and authentic antique furniture. Their estancia is designed like a home where every room is decorated differently and every detail is inspired by a story.

From 170 unspoiled hectares of farm land, the Fenestraz family created an authentic example of the Argentinean campo where the wild forest has been transformed into a natural park and the rest of the grounds are looked after like a private garden.

El Colibrí is a colonial-style mansion designed with modern comforts. With only nine rooms, each guest is assured a warm reception and personal service. Meals feature the best Argentinean meats and wines.

The main house features a bar, library, spa, and swimming pool. Nearby, you’ll find the ranch’s club house and polo fields. Guests can relax on the grounds or enjoy horseback riding, biking, golf, polo, fishing and dove hunting. A treetop adventure track and go-cart racing are available for younger guests.

The El Colibrí estancia is just a short flight from Buenos Aires, Mendoza and Santiago de Chile. PanAmerican Travel Services arranges stays at El Colibrí and other destinations within Argentina and Chile.

Some of our clients who visited El Colibrí recently provided the following reviews:

  • “The highlight of our vacation was certainly El Colibrí. This is a spectacular place. I highly recommend it as a destination for individuals as well as families. My kids said it was the best vacation they’ve had. The hosts are incredible!”
  • “The Estancia El Colibrí exceeded our very lofty expectations. It is, quite simply, the nicest place I’ve ever stayed. The rooms, food, staff, and facilities were first rate.”
