Since its opening in 1995, the lodge is one of the best hunting lodges in Argentina. It is ideally located between the two largest nesting grounds of the Argentine pigeon in Cordoba. The Lodge offers excellent hunting all year round. The hunting house itself is very attractive for hunters, and over the years attracts the attention of those who are “in the subject”. In 2010, the Lodge increased hunting grounds more than twice, and the house was completely renovated to meet the highest quality standards. Today the lodge is better than ever, and offers hunt for pigeons in Argentina, where you can find the best, luxurious rooms and excellent service.
Winter in Cordoba – from June to August, and summer – from December to March. In the summer there are rains. But mostly in the evening. Stock up a slicker for this case.
Customers value the lodge for the amazing pigeon hunt and its privacy. This is an ideal solution for families, small groups of friends and corporate parties.
You usually need to book a lodge 6-9 months ahead and one year from January to March, when the sunflower ripens in these parts.
In Argentina, summer is from December to March, and its long days and high concentration of birds make this time of the year prime time. Hunting for pigeons on this site mainly takes place on the famous hills of Mach and surrounding farms. From April to May the pigeon meets about 40 minutes from the lodge. Due to its location, the lodge is the only place open in both these months. In June and July, during the early winter in Cordoba, mild temperatures and clear skies create ideal conditions for hunting. From July to November, winter and spring hunt for pigeons takes place on the hills and at this time of year there is a fantastically beautiful weather.
In simple terms, hunt for pigeons in Argentina is the best in the world. But the quality of shooting varies from province to province and from region to region. There are several areas with excellent pigeon hunting in Argentina, but none of these places can compare to the northern Cordoba. In particular, the best hunt for a pigeon in Cordoba near the famous nests of Mach and Churki. The Lodge is perfectly located right between them, which provides easy access to dozens of millions of pigeons.
Seasonality: all year round
The Lodge offers pigeon hunting in Argentina all year round. You will have access to more than 64,000 hectares of the best hunting farms and fields of Cordoba. The unsurpassed number of shooting locations distinguishes our lodge from the other hunting grounds of Cordoba and allows for excellent hunting in any season.
Of all the hunting lodges in Cordoba, our lodge is perhaps the most unique. It perfectly combines the charm of the “good old” Argentina with modern luxury and offers 5-star amenities, rarely found in hunting lodges. The Lodge is located about 95 km north of Córdoba Airport. In the cottage there is a lounge area, an open lounge with a place for a fire and an ordinary dining area. But the most famous “highlight” of the lodge is a rustic, but very elegant bar. It was built over 150 years ago, providing guests with ideal conditions for cocktails, poker games and just for gatherings.
In 2013, a heated jacuzzi-pool was built, which perfectly relaxes at the end of an active day. The kitchen was completely renovated in April 2014, reaching the highest level.
The Lodge, built in 1995 and carefully restored in 2010, is designed for private hunting. The house has 6 well-appointed suites with two windows, each with queen-size beds, private bathroom, air conditioning and a fireplace. Despite the fact that the lodge can comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests, groups of 4 or more people can reserve the entire house only for themselves. In addition to pigeon hunting, hunters are provided with the best service, exquisite cuisine, wonderful local wines and the warmest Argentine hospitality.
There is no standard check in the lodge. But it may happen that the previous group still shoots on the morning of your arrival. Such hunting usually lasts up to 11-30. This means that the room behind these guests is up to 12-30 and will be free for you at 14-00, but we, of course, will do everything as quickly as possible so that you will take it as soon as possible.
