Description: Located in the last confines of the American continent, estancia Monte Dinero opens its gates to offer an excellent proposal to enjoy agricultural tourism. Sheep husbandry is the main production at this venue, which occupies 26 thousand hectares. For over a century, five generations of the Fenton Family has run the estancia, which offers visitors the possibility of witnessing rural tasks such as sheep shearing, branding, wool classification, driving herds and artificial insemination. All this has caused the venue to be considered as a model by local government entities. Guests stay at “La Casa Grande”, a warm and cozy construction dating back from one century ago which combines period furniture and elements of modern comfort, as well as a perceptive customized assistance. In the surroundings of the shell, guests may visit the penguin colony and Cabo Vírgenes Lighthouse, go for a walk to the place known as “Monte Dinero” (Money hill) –its name derives from the gold that could be found on its shores– or enjoy pleasant moments at the coffee-shop called "Al fin y al cabo". There are few places in the world that may become a refuge for the soul; Monte Dinero is one of them.
