Description: Located in the heavenly Mountains of Cordoba, approximately 37 miles from the Cordoba Airport, is the right combination between the refinement of a high quality European style Lodge, a charming and hospitable homely atmosphere and the excitement of a different kind of leisure.
This destination is a member of the prestigious chain Relais & Chateaux and according to Tatler Magazine “one of the 101 best unique lodges in the world”. They control the roost with overwhelming amounts of brids within 10-20 mintues from the lodge properties from July through March and around 45 minute drive from April through June.
170 hectares 420 acres of forest surround El Colibrí. There you can authentically experience the Argentine countryside and nature's innermost essence.
Accommodations: From the entrance the Club House of the Colibrí Polo Club with its thatched roof, you can appreciate the view of the two polo fields. Then moving along the undulating path that skirts the typical weeping grass, you can see the Spanish colonial style house against the bluish background of the mountains. On the porch, adorned with an island of flowers that perfumes the arrival, the guest can expect a warm welcoming from our personnel. Here you can enjoy Argentina high volume dove shooting relaxing holiday.
Modelled on the Argentine ranches from the start of the XX century, the House is decorated with furniture and objects selected after years of searching. Each room has its personality and every detail is inspired by a story.
Each Suite is decorated with a different floral design hand painted on the walls and it is also reproduced on the curtains and the baths as well.
The fireplace that stands out in the living room is reproduced in the main hall of the suite, where a spacious and comfortable bed invites you to rest and to enjoy the scenery through the windows. This postcard view can also be admired from the private terrace of each Junior Suite and suites overlooking the garden.
All rooms are equipped with a wood-burning fireplace, satellite TV, DVD player and surround sound, mini-bar, safe and free Wi-Fi Internet access.
The bathrooms, decorated in keeping with the suite, are the special place for a restful bath in a large bathtub with separate shower area.
