No doubt it Dolores is our most seen guests on La Margarita. It seems like yesterday she arrived in our office in Buenos Aires and proceeded to hand out some presents to each of my staff and asked to book a couple of days on La Margarita . That must have been 4 or so years ago. Each time she arrived in Argentina (which is lots of times) she would ring and book a couple of days out of this bloody crazy city ( her words) Off she set by coach to La Margarita for her couple of days break – it never mattered to her if we had other guests here or not or that she didn't speak Spanish because she just loved to be here. She came so many times that she even got a horse name after her who many of you who have been to La Margarita have ridden. Dolores the horse is a lovely horse and many guests who ride her for the first time ask to ride her again and again.
I hadn’t heard from Dolores for about 18 months when all of a sudden she arrived in our office asking to book a few days on the estancia to get out of this crazy city. This time however she wasn’t alone - no this time she came double handed. In between the time we had last seen each other she had had to twins. The twins Jackie and Ralph were with Dolores as she booked her latest stay on La Margarita.
I was on La Margarita when she came with the twins and it was good to see her with the children who seemed to thoroughly enjoy being in the campo – all that space to explore and animals to stroke – no doubt about it it’s a great place for kids.
Dolores stayed for two nights and three days with the children and Kathryn Ackland her friend from California who is a raw food expert ( here is a link if you want her to explain more about what she does email@example.com)
They all seemed to have a great time. Dolores told me that La Margarita was her favorite place in the world – with that type of compliment she is most welcome here for sure. Certainly she knows what we offer on La Margarita – a place to really get away from it all – chill out and be alone with nature if you wish, go for a horse ride over the never ending pampas or have a glass of wine or four!! with friends while watching the sunset ( well with friends and kids in her case this time ) . Dolores loves it and I love it that she loves it.
