Built on the tradition of over 20 years of Argentina dove hunting experience, the lodge is the most exclusive dove hunting accomodations yet offered in Cordoba. It has received acclaim from Argentina's journals of design and decoration. This is the Argentina dove hunting experience intended for personal design: Built by the pioneer of Argentina wingshooting, this lodge is especially reserved for exclusive use by parties of 4-9 hunters, 12 guests maximum. This is the absolute perfect setting for exclusive groups of friends, family and business associates.
The lodge staff has been specially trained in the art of caring for private parties. Meals feature the very best Argentine beef and other meats, and menus are prepared by one of Argentina's best chefs. Carefully selected Argentine vintages complement field lunches and dinner in the lodge and, as some guests have said, the wines alone are worthy of the visit.
Starting with our legendary field lunches, meals are a highlight. Since dove hunts are typically brief, ala carte evening dining is offered. Choose from among five or six different entrees and salads each evening. The lodge features 5 single- and 2 double-occupancy bedrooms, an in-house masseuse, an outdoor hot tub, satellite phone and internet connectivity. A spacious, fully-stocked complimentary bar, recreation room, and gun cleaning room are additional features.
From the moment you arrive in Argentina, service is personalized and attention is paid to every imaginable detail, from airport reception, to uniformed bird boys in the field. This standard is unequalled, and makes a visit to Cordoba a shooting holiday without peer. For non- shooting guests, shopping trips and tours of the historic City of Cordoba are available.
The hunting program generally begins at 8:00 AM with a hearty breakfast and short drive to the shoot. In the field you will be assigned a pick up boy, who will provide you with shells and refreshments and direct you to your shooting stand. The shooting is situated in a flyway, where the doves are flying to and from their roost to grain fields to feed.
You will be constantly visited by your field host who will be available to assist you with any need. Depending on the time of the year you will shoot until noon and then be treated to an incredible asado, or barbeque lunch, shaded by a comfortable safari tent, tasting some of Argentina's wonderful beef and superb wines. Hammocks will be available afterwards for those who are so inclined.
Afternoon hunting begins at around 2:00- 2:30, and continues until almost dark. There is no definite time to close the shoot. Return to the lodge for cocktails and early dinner.
Excellent Argentina dove hunts may be enjoyed at this estancia for 12 months per year.
