Where you'll be

Wild, natural and remote land; off-grid and off the beaten path. Located at the foot of the Frontal Mountain Range of the Andes is Los Toldos ranch, an old rural house used during the summers by Pacheco's family to bring their animals to graze in the mountains. From creole descendants, this was one of first families to settle in this area. Rosendo, our host, belongs to the 5th generation living in this place, keeping all its traditions alive.
