About Rancho Tinto

Rancho Tinto is a subdivision of Legacy Polo Club Zurich and is located in the compound of one of the oldest farms in Buenos Aires Province San Martin four hours from the capital city.

The ranch has an old history about polo and provides not only Swiss polo players during the winter months with high goal polo training but also people from around Europe who take the advantage to train here from mid-December until mid-March. Daily business is on and around the horses to get a maximum advantage of your stay. For those who are not so interested in horses there are a lot of alternative activities such as fishing, golf, hunting etc.


Tinto is a modern rural farm with a variety of small houses. The guest house is divided in five bungalows which are connected through a covered walk way. Gym, spa and tack room are next to the park with an astonishing view over our small river and the horse corals.

Our guesthouse provides four modern and cozily furnished suites. Two per bungalow with connecting doors. All rooms have satellite TV, Rain-showers and a small patio overlooking the polo field.

Trough an amazing glass front in the main tract where we serve our meals you have a spectacular view over the polofield and its surroundings. A stylish wooden fireplace gives the whole room a very special touch and a home feeling ambiance.

The room fee includes free WiFi in the whole ranch, Concierge Service and Full Board. We serve regional cuisine and we take care that all our food comes from biological crops from the region. Our wines are mostly from the Mendoza region and are from an exceptional quality.

Pleasure and LeisureIn between the polo sessions a swim in the ocean and the visit to the nearby beach is just wonderful and a family happening. And if polo is not enough why you do not try the ocean kayak or kite surfing.

Pleasure and LeisureFor our small ones time flies while playing around the water fountain or going for a horse ride with our ponies.

Pleasure and LeisureAnd for sure it does not have to be always polo, an adventures ride through the pampa and galloping along the ocean is a perfect day trip and something to remember while sitting at night around the fireplace with a glass of Malbec.

Pleasure and LeisureDuring February and March hunting lessons and shooting classes can be taken.


The main attraction remains polo and we are taking good care that for horses and player there are only the best facilities available.

We offer together with our partner
'la Porfia Polo' polo lessons within the highest standards. Our pros are all handicapped in between 4-6 goals.

The daily polo training is divided into two blocks, in the morning stick and ball and in the afternoon club chukkers. The polo player can choose out of medium or high goal chukkers.

Horses are the key to play polo that is why during the season we have 80 special trained horses on the ranch to assure that for every player there is a suitable horse. All our horses are on sale.

Rancho Tinto is not open throughout the whole year. Our season starts mid-December until mid-March, special bookings are possible.
