The attention paid to detail along with a personalized service are part of the philosophy of Estancia La Paz Hotel, a comforting, quiet and intimate place that honors its history.
Estancia La Paz has been associated with equestrian activities throughout its history. In the XIX century, Don Julio Argentino Roca used to spend his summers at La Paz, enjoying his horses. In the last decades of the past century, the practice of Polo became the Estancia’s trademark.

About Estancia La Paz
The first inhabitants of the territory that is now “Pueblo Estancia La Paz” were the indigenous Sanavirones. Towards the mid XVII century, this location was called “Corral de Piedra” (which means “stone corral”), and together with the “Ascochinga” windmill, it was donated to the novitiate of the Compañía de Jesús School to be incorporated in the “Santa Catalina” Estancia, today a World Heritage Site, which came to extend for over 150,000 acres.
The estancia saw its greatest period of splendor in the hands of Julio A. Roca, who was President of the Argentine Republic twice. By the late XIX century, he modernized the estancia by granting it an Italian Neoclassical style and by adding important buildings like the stables, the wash house, the indoor pool and the outdoor pool. It was also the former President who commissioned the French landscape architect Charles Thays to design the majestic 250-acre park with its artificial lake.
