Nestled in the heart of Argentina, within the province of Buenos Aires, El Casal Polo is the perfect place for a family getaway. Canter along stretches of green grass. Perfect your polo skills with polo lessons suitable for all levels and ages. El Casal promises an equestrian holiday that is both enriching and relaxing.
Your polo experience will consist of stick & ball practice, chukkas and you will even get the opportunity to participate in some tournaments. The head instructor, Adrian “Memo” Raschia Grau, is an AAP-qualified and HPA-qualified instructor with over 20 years of experience in the sport. He will ensure that you leave with a renewed set of skills and sense of confidence in your polo abilities.
Aside from picking up important polo skills during your stay at El Casal, there are many ways in which you can learn more about Argentinian culture and get a taste of what living on a farm in Argentina is like. A stay at El Casal includes all meals. Start the day with a delicious continental breakfast. In the evening, enjoy a feast of Argentine ‘asado’, a traditional Argentinian BBQ. There is a large variety of traditional Argentinian dishes available for you to try – even a series of recipes we have collected from past guests over the years.
While staying at El Casal, there are many activities for the entire family to enjoy, regardless of whether you’re a rider or not. There will be a chance for all guests to witness a traditional Argentinian ‘Jinteteada’ (rodeo show). Not only is this an exciting and riveting performance, it is also a great introduction to Argentinian culture. Guests can work with cattle on horseback, an experience that is rarely available anywhere else. For the younger ones, El Casal even has a swimming pool and a large garden for children to frolic and play in. El Casal promises to be a great holiday for the whole family, and not just those interested in polo.
El Casal welcomes large groups and families with open arms, and are happy to organise tournaments, parties and big BBQ celebrations! Because El Casal is shaped like a large villa, with 5 en-suite bedrooms, it is the perfect place for you and your family and friends to come together and celebrate a special occasion.
