Property Details

As a former 17,000-hectare sheep farm, El Pedral Lodge’s eight minimalist double rooms provide a cozy stay for guests. This traditional lodge retains the charm of its 19th century roots, exhibiting Norman architecture, brilliant antique furniture and has an extraordinary view of the crystal-blue Atlantic Ocean. The main house, built in 1904, displays its stunning ornamental balustrades and still has the founding family’s mahogany dining table and iron bathtub within. The classic spiral staircase leads to a comfortable turret overlooking a pebble bar and the endless blue beyond, a quiet place for guests to unwind. The property’s restaurant serves home-made, authentic dishes prepared with fresh vegetables and traditional meats. The barbecued Patagonia lamb is best paired with one of the many fine Argentinian wines available.

The surrounding area of Punta Ninfas offers an array of activities for all types of visitors. Puerto Pirámides is famously known for its whale-watching and is the only natural place where visiting whales can be seen regularly. Penguin sightings are also unique to Punta Tombo. The rocky shores and steppe also shelter many local land animals including the rare maras, grey foxes, guanacos, and ñandues (South American ostrich).

Visitors can explore the Argentinian landscape by horseback riding on the beach or by sailing the surrounding sea on a boat or kayak. Sandboarding in the dunes is often enjoyed and ocean activities such as snorkeling, water skiing, and fishing are also a pleasant way to enjoy the riches of this magical place.
