What our guest are saying
“This was one of the best experiences ever! What an absolutely lovely place. I came to Argentina to learn to play polo, and I left not just with a passion for the sport, but an absolute love of Argentina, and some friends for life. At Palo Alto the laid back attitude is all about inspiring confidence and having fun while learning to play. The ponies are fantastic (my favourites were Louis Vuitton and Hurricane). I was so lucky that the weather allowed me to play every day, with stick and ball practice in the morning and some exciting practice chukkas with visiting professionals in the afternoon, interspersed with a dip in the pool and a siesta of course! The accommodation is gorgeous, and lovely Veronica, the housekeeper, provides fantastic home cooked food. But perhaps the very best part of my stay was making such fantastic friends. Emily and Leo are truly awesome, the grooms fantastic, and the other guests were so lovely to hang out with. I have never felt more myself than when on the back of a horse riding through the dusk with lightening bugs flickering over my ponies ears. I loved my time at Palo Alto so much I extended my stay from 3 weeks to a full month. I left my heart in Argentina, and I’m counting down the days til I can go back.”
“I was lucky enough to spend a week at Palo Alto. Emily and Leo have done a fantastic job at setting up the perfect Polo getaway! They have a sound understanding of the sport and the patience and knowledge to teach anyone no matter their standard. The accommodation was comfortable and the cooking delicious! I would recommend if you’re going out there for any longer than 3 days to purchase your own riding gear which can be organised with Palo Alto prior to your visit. I purchased some custom made riding boots which made riding considerably easier and safer. If you like the outdoors, horses and meeting awesome people – Palo Alto is for you! I will definitely be back.”
“Our week at Palo Alto Polo Club was one of our favorite experiences in Argentina. We visited the new estancia and facilities about an hour and a half southwest of Buenos Aires near the small town of Villars.
From the beginning, Emily and Leo treat you like a part of the family. The horses and polo instruction are great. The horses are healthy and well cared for. Superman had all the speed and agility necessary to catch up and ride off nearly anyone, and Prince the perfect match for for the beginner rider with a competitive streak that kept him constantly galloping after the ball. If you don’t feel like riding twice daily every day, you’re free to relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. There are plenty of lovely places for lounging, and a sparkling pool for warm afternoons. They even have a sauna to help ease the ache as you get accustomed to using your muscles in a new or different way.
Once you get to Palo Alto Polo Club, you’ll never want to leave. We extended our stay twice, and hope we can return again someday. We truly feel like we made two new friends in Leo and Emily.
