Enjoying a prime location and high levels of comfort, the bungalows of El Puesto Sur will enable you to stay in accommodation that has a truly traditional Patagonian identity. During the 1990’s we compiled details of the architecture of the estancia buildings on the north side of Lake Viedma. This included the “puestos” which are small dwellings, far away from the main estancia buildings, where ranch personnel travelling on horseback can stay while working in remote expanses of the Patagonian wilderness. Inspired by these puestos, the bungalows of El Puesto Sur are a tribute to this traditional Patagonian architecture.
