Montaraz is an exclusive Pigeon Shooting lodge in the region of Cordoba, one of the gems in the David Denies crown of sporting lodges. It is a beautiful Colonial style lodge built in the late 1600’s and beautifully restored and up-dated – renovated in 2007 to accommodate all your needs in luxury and comfort. Montaraz is located between the Sierras Chicas and Grandes and encompasses 50 square miles of hunting fields – home to over Five million pigeons.
This beautiful, elegant, and historic estancia boasts 8 well-appointed rooms with en-suite baths, and accommodates up to 16 hunters. Decorated in the warm colonial style, it makes a great lodge in which to relax and enjoy your time away from the fields. Montaraz lodge is surrounded by covered verandas which overlook gardens, and orchards and even a lake. There is a cozy living room, open bar, and well-stocked wine cellar, plus a large comfortable dining room which is also used for games. There is even a beautiful chapel in the lodge. The chef at Montaraz creates a whole array of enticing and delicious dishes including the best Argentine beef and other quality fruits and vegetables complimented by fine wines produced from select grapes grown on the estancia property. From arrival to departure you will have personalized service and note the attention to details exhibited by the entire staff.
The hunting program, in the heart of one of the pigeon shooting capitals of the world, is spread out over 50 shooting fields all within the estancia property and reached by a short scenic drive from lodge to field. Once at the field in which you will be shooting, you will be assigned a bird-boy who will take care of providing shells, and refreshments through the morning. There are also professional guides who will spend time from shooter to shooter to assist you or even give shooting tips- if you like. These birds are large – but fast so it may take a while to get the tempo. You will shoot from your own blind near which decoys have been strategically placed. The morning shoot generally lasts until about noon when you will return to the lodge for an asado Lunch followed by a short siesta. The afternoon hunt begins typically at about 2:30 and continues until 5:00 or 6:00 PM when you return to the lodge, clean up a bit, and relax with cocktails in the wine cellar until dinner is served.
It is easiest to fly into Santiago Chile then on to Cordoba where you are met by Montaraz staff who will transfer you to the Estancia. Passports must have 6 months validity past your last scheduled day in the country.
If you are looking for more variety, there is a swimming pool, tennis court, horses to ride, a masseuse to ‘work out the kinks’ from a day busy with shooting. With prior arrangements and additional cost, historical tours or shopping trips may be arranged.
