Estrella Federal is located by the Parana river bank, over the mouth of Las Hermanas creek. It is a place marked by history, with dream groves and stretches of land which go on and disappear in the distance. At 112 miles to the north of the city of Buenos Aires, along Route 9, in Ramallo administrative area, maps tell about a place called El Paraíso (The Paradise). In this place, Cardon and Eidico, a company specializing in private real-estate development at cost price, developed this joint undertaking: a proposal directed at resting and country tourism in an area of 988 acres, which were once part of El Ombú (The Ombu) farmhouse, property of the Quesada family, which still today keeps the old colonial style building from 1841, buried deep by the bank of Parana river.
The development started in July of 2005. The finished infrastructure building work allow many owners to enjoy their houses, as a place of permanent residence or as a place to rest on the weekends. The old colonial building, surrounded by a 74-acre park designed by Thays at the beginning of last century, is today an impressive inn with services such as catering trade, gastronomy and country tourism so that tourists and owners can enjoy an unforgettable stay. The premises, located at just 3 miles from the city of Ramallo, carry the mark of our past: they were the scene of battles against the invader and General San Martín's troops relay. Today the historic traces go side by side with the peaceful beauty of a traditional farmhouse by Parana river banks.
The 988 acres of Estrella Federal contain 126 private farms of an average of 2.5 acres each, located in different places: the lagoon, the channel, the polo field, the gully and the river.
This undertaking is developed with the Eidico system, created in 1994, which results from the contribution of small investors who participated in the business of transforming a piece of virgin land into a successful undertaking.
The Estrella Federal farmhouse is the first establishment of Cardon Farmhouses, a company product of joining objectives and values shared by Cardon and Eidico. Its mission is to rescue places with a high cultural, productive, geographic and historic meaning in order to give them more value by developing proposals directed at meeting tourism, resting, production or permanent housing demands.
