Estancia Puerto Valle was established in 1868 by an Italian sailor Bernadino Valle. He bought the land from the provincial government and developed his cattle-raising and merchandise transportation business.
The estate reaches inside the Reserve, up to the wetlands border, acting as an outstanding gateway to a marvelous protected natural environment. Departing from the pier by boat you can reach the Paraná River and then tour the waterways directly to the Paranaense forest.
The property has 13 exclusive rooms with panoramic views to the Paraná River. Each deluxe room has an individual terrace, where you’ll have a chance to enjoy unparalleled views of the skyline.
The park surrounding the manor house has an organic garden where herbs and vegetables are grown which are then used for the restaurant’s dishes. There is a pool, a palapa and a quincho on the other side of the park.
Indoor areas invite you to relax and enjoy. You can find a library with a fireplace and a bookcase, which is an ideal setting for winter afternoons.
The menu offers a choice of aromas and flavors perfectly matched with a select wine menu from the best Argentinian labels.
There are plentiful excursions on offer: from fishing and bird watching to horseback riding and hiking. Couples can enjoy a fully relaxing afternoon at the palapa facing the river. Sports and nature lovers can voyage on the comfortable ‘sit-on-top’ kayaks on the quiet river waters.
Activities for children include cooking with the restaurant’s chef, visiting to Yacaré Porá, the caiman farm where children can learn about the sustainable conservation project and the secrets of raising a caiman, searching for capybaras, the large rodents found during sunset, gathering flowers, fruits and leaves. In the hotel, a specialized guide will help your children identify the species they have gathered. Also you can track howler monkeys in the Paranaense forest. All children are welcome.
