“El Ombu de Areco” is located near San Antonio de Areco, a small village, an hour
away or so from Buenos Aires. A typical countryside village full of history and gaucho
tradition that amazes its visitors.
The magnificent “casco”, a house built by lieutenant General Pablo Riccheri in 1880,
opens its “tranquera” every single day to offer its guests an unforgettable visit.
The estancia was purchased in 1934 by Enrique Boelcke, Cristina and Eva´s grandfather
and Diego and Juan Pablo´s great grandfather, who are the present owners.
In 1993 the family decided to receive tourists, becoming one of the first Estancia in the
country with more than 25 years of experience with visitors from Argentina and all over
More than 350 heads of cattle (Aberdeen Angus) and 70 horses graze in its fields. There
is also soya, corn, oat or pastures, depending on the season ploughed in its fields.
