As grandparents swap cream teas for suitcases, estancia in Argentina joins 3G multigenerational travel boom
Multigenerational family travel has featured heavily in the various lists of trends over the last couple of years. With time, disposable income and health on side, this way of travelling internationally is now a consideration for families who seek affordable togetherness in faraway places. Travelling around the world with parents, siblings, kids, grandchildren and extended family members, can be a rare opportunity to catch up on ‘lost’ quality time back home. Shared experiences that have a variety of generations in the mix while trying new activities can be more enjoyable and relaxing than a conventional break while splitting costs with each person or often sponsorship from the grandparents remains a big draw.
Louisa Begg who hosts Estancia Los Potreros in Córdoba Argentina with her husband Kevin says, “Putting everyone’s needs into one holiday makes sense. Argentina, with its direct flights from the UK and Europe, has a great variety of accommodation and activity options. So many families are challenged today by living huge distances apart or manic schedules, so it is an absolute joy to see these so-called ‘3G’ groups finding a sanctuary with us to breathe, play and laugh again. I am not surprised that the multigenerational travel trend is on the up. Our main traditional farmhouse is always known to evoke a house party atmosphere so it is logical that we extended our offering to include private and exclusive hire.”
The 6,500-acre working cattle farm, ideally secluded at the top of the Sierras Chicas in the heart of the beautiful region of Córdoba, Argentina, is perfect for families and friends who want to enjoy the entire property and estancia life to themselves. With capacity for up to 12 guests with a variety of accommodation options, the estancia includes riding magnificent horses, playing polo and gaucho games, walking, photography, bird-watching, soaking up the local culture or simply enjoying relaxation time around the pool. For foodies there are barbecues and wines to enjoy. Rates for exclusive hire of Estancia Los Potreros are on an all-inclusive basis starting from £5104 for a 3 night stay.
