About El Colibri

The story goes back a long way and it's a family affair. During the 1992 Albertville Winter Olympic Games, Raymonde and André Fenestraz started their hospitality business in the French Alps, in Courchevel 1850 and Meribel.

In the year 2000, Raoul Fenestraz, their son, and his wife moved to Argentina to pursue his dream. Living near Cordoba, the couple built a sumptuous residence, whose architecture was inspired by the Estancias of the early 20th century. Open in 2005 and member of the Relais & Châteaux, Estancia El Colibri offers guests the opportunity to discover Argentina’s rural lifestyle, horse ranching and polo.

Whether in the Alps or in South America, these Maisons with authentic styles share the same refinement and discreet luxury. The family motto says “the best thing one man can do for another is to share his dream”. To experience the hospitality of Maison Fenestraz is to share this dream.
