Estancia Carlos Keen
Carlos Keen, Luján, Buenos Aires (Provincia), Argentina
DescriptionEstancia Carlos Keen is a relaxing retreat in the Argentine countryside.
This relaxing retreat is in the small countryside town Carlos Keen, just outside downtown Buenos Aires. A tranquil and darling village that comes to life on the weekends with musicians, art exhibits, pony rides, an artisan craft fair and lively restaurants! Only one hour and 15 minutes from the hustle and bustle of vibrant Buenos Aires it’s a quick and easy get away to another world.
Carlos Keen is a quaint and sleepy village with horses lazily grazing in the fields that make up the town square. On weekends though it comes to life with musicians, art exhibits, pony rides, an artesian craft fair and more than 10 restaurants that open their doors for mid day meals. Friday evenings in summer time boast an open air cinema with live music and family oriented films.
Homestead is a lovely property situated down a private dirt lane less than a kilometer from the center of the village. Nestled in between ancient eucalyptus trees and surrounded by farmland with cows grazing in the meadows the estate offers privacy and tranquility as well as convenience.
