Llamuco Ranch
Aluminé, Neuquén
The Ranch
The ranch, property of the Cordero family, is located only 5 Km from Aluminé town.
The family have lived there for over 70 years, keeping the manners and country- like way of life from the old times. Their current owners are heirs of Don Antuco Cordero, an actual pioneer who settled here in 1942, since then the house has sheltered more than one generation.
Although the ranch has been recently used as a touristic accommodation, the rhythm of the rural life as well as the daily ranch works, mix with a magical world where you will enjoy of pleasurable countryside days and being awaken by the sound of nature.
The Lodge
Built in “French wall” over one hundred years ago, the house has been the residence of our family for quite a long time.
Over the years we have enjoyed of numerous visits of relatives, friends and anyone who needed a cozy shelter. Being the grandmother Matilde the host and the centre around whom the life of the ranch developed. Even today her presence is on every corner; milking the cows for fresh milk or ready for the cheese, cooking for a bunch of relatives or simply knitting in the cold night of Patagonian winter. Her spirit is among us in the house, her house...
The house was restored a few years ago and got ready to receive every traveller looking forward to spending some delightful and truly Patagonian country side days.
Surrounded by a big green park and close to Llamuco creek, the place provides you with privacy along with an unusual quietude. The spacious and beautifully decorated rural style suite bedrooms offer a capacity of up to ten guests.
A large round and swivel table turn the lunch or dinner into a unique moment, crowned by the coffee in the living room which is full of family memories and warmed by the centenarian firewood kitchen.
Next to the house there is the “quincho”, built in cypress logs with big windows, where you can take pleasure in having a great “asado”
The Food
Our food is made daily by Loly, current owner of the property, who learnt the art of cooking from her grandmother and now it makes essential to delight every guest with a carefully designed menu based in fresh and organic products collected from our own garden.
The pasta, the lamb and trout are some of the exquisites of our cuisine and to finish a perfect evening, we offer you delicious and traditional desserts accompanied with a homemade liqueur or spirit.
The wines come from the best Patagonian wineries. However, any other is available according to the ranch’s wine menu.
In the afternoon you can enjoy of a snack in the lovely summer park in the park, the previous being the preface for a wonderful dinner.
