Live like a local and get a dose of gaucho culture at this Argentine ranch. Polo lessons included

An hour’s drive from Buenos Aires, in the heart of San Antonio de Areco’s vast pampas, sits La Bamba de Areco, an elegant and recently renovated estancia owned by French polo player Jean-François Decaux and designed by his wife, interior designer Pascale. Eleven rooms, each named after a polo pony, feature dark wood floors, antique colonial furniture and local textiles, while renovated stables offer an equally luxurious home for the 18 well-nurtured ponies. Guests who wish to take lessons should have some existing polo knowledge but will embark on informative excursions with resident gauchos and spend time with the property’s fascinating self-proclaimed horse whisperer. Rooms start at $580 (for polo lessons, the entire estancia must be booked, from $6,620); Ruta 31, km. 7.5; 54-11/4519-4996; labambadeareco.com .
