Bahia Bustamante is a private sheep farm in Argentina, Patagonia and part of the National Park “Patagonia Austral”. Spread over 210,000 acres and located about 1,000 miles south of Buenos Aires, this isolated outpost is a true escape-from-it-all destination. There is a huge variety of plant and animal species to admire including more domestic animals like sheep, dogs, cats and horses which roam freely across the farm, but there is also a large number of wild marine animals, such as: penguins, sea lions and a huge diversity of marine birds.
Bahia Bustamante is truly in the middle of nature, hundreds of miles from any other urbanisation with unending skies and undulating landscapes ranging from pockets of the desert, uninterrupted swathes of pastureland, dunes and canyons to the rugged Atlantic cliffs which drop down beaches and the wild and deep blue ocean.
With only 30 inhabitants, this small seaweed town has opened its doors to travellers, offering the exclusivity of being surrounded by 360 degrees of nature and with access to an incredible diversity of fauna.
The property itself comprises of the old grocery store, which now houses the common areas of the hotel and has an old-world Patagonia atmosphere. The club is a games room with pool, ping-pong and table-football. The bar and living room is the perfect place to relax while watching the sea through the immense windows and enjoying the special lighting & fabulous sunsets that the Patagonia offers. The bar is situated in the corner of the living room. In the small library, you will find works about birds that inhabit the local shores left year after year by the Biologists.
The winner will be staying in one of the most luxury rooms at Bahia Bustamante: one of the six sea view houses. Each house has 2 very comfortable, simply decorated bedrooms, living room, and fully equipped bathroom. Mini bar & ocean front view terrace. Wifi is available in the common areas while the generator is on, however since it is satellite, the service is variable and unsurprisingly there is no cell phone signal, however there is a telephone at disposal. Bicycles are also complimentary.
The restaurant serves regional food based on typical products of the area: seaweed, different kinds of meat, fish and other marine products and fruits and vegetables from the organic garden all make their way onto your table. Meals are hearty, country fare with lentil based dishes, roasted vegetables along with fresh fire-roasted lamb all washed down with Patagonia beer.
There are numerous activities at your fingertips including: sailing and visiting sea lion and sea bird colonies and exploring the peninsula with its sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, natural swimming pools by trekking, biking or by 4×4.
