RECOLETA QUIET FABULOUS SUNNY FRENCH PIED A TERRE/GARDENS

Recoleta Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Den, Sleeps 5

Pass through the iron doors, mount the marble staircase, and enter a world unto its own, into centuries past. This edifice was built in 1899 by a celebrated French architect for the Alvear family and declared a Historic Monument because of its unique design, age and history. Built around three sumptuous gardens, each window faces the enclosed courtyard, a true French Pied-a-Terre.

100 meters built on 3 separate levels with 15 foot ceilings in the Living Room and Bedroom. The loft entrepiso has a separate sitting room and sleeping area for two with a second bathroom. Walk down 3 steps and enter a built-in kitchen with a washer/dryer and a Formal Dining Room/Den with antique Chinese daybed.

Live in this hidden, secret space: a respite from the present and the madness of the vibrant city surrounding us. Wake to sunshine in the gardens and the sound of birds.

Newly renovated and elegantly appointed with exotic woods, Chinese furnishings and Indian silks, a perfect blend of history and todays' most modern convenience.

Located on the border of Recoleta and Barrio Norte, just 5 blocks from the famous Recoleta Cemetery. Within walking distance to the most elegant shopping and restaurants. There are 5 outdoor fruit/vegetable markets and 3 large supermarkets within a two block radius.

Private Spanish and tango lessons can be arranged. Two doormen will assist as concierge for every need and the owner lives in the building. Private car and driver available for airport transportation and touring for a nominal fee.

It will comfortably accommodate 4 persons, however it is not suitable for children or animals.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Stayed here for two weeks and loved every minute. The apartment is quite marvelous, beautifully maintained, absolute top quality furnishings, linens, towels and everything you might need in the kitchen. The added treat are the gardens on the grounds. You can enjoy trees, flowers, and birds chirping, and no traffic noise, something not heard of in Buenos aires. The location is excellent, near shops, cafes, food stores, good restaurants and a short distance to centro, San Telmo , museums etc. The owner is absolutely an angel. She is also a gifted artist and has created many of the exquisite pieces one can enjoy in the apartment. She was helpful with everything including making recommendations for restaurants to referring a dentist when I needed one. . Would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone who enjoys beautiful surroundings and a peaceful setting. The owner and the apartment are absolute gems

Built over 112 years ago, it is the oldest French building in this part of Recoleta. It is rumored that this architect designed a sister building in Paris. It is constructed courtyard style around three gardened patios so all the windows open to the gardens. We are buffered from all the street noise just outside the front entrance, so we live in silence and awaken with the birds.

Bliss Guaranteed

  • 5 of 5
Staying at this marvelous, historic pied-a-terre was sheer bliss. Why? Location is key. Travelers look for safety, convenience, and a good night's sleep. On all three counts this rental was ideal. Recoleta offers historic sites, a street fair, and top-notch restaurants with cheap taxi service to other neighborhoods. The locked-gate entrance opens onto a series of elegant interior courtyards. But there's more. From the start Anne Elizabeth was on hand to make sure we'd be "so, so, so happy," as she'd promised in her e-mail. She made it all so easy: a driver to meet us at the airport, a tasty lunch with Argentine wine. Comfortable beds, the apartment's fabulous and fascinating decor, the well-stocked kitchen, the washer and drier -- all of this assured our comfort and well-being. Throughout our 8-day visit (June 2014), it was reassuring to have the owner in the same building. We cannot thank Anne Elizabeth enough for her kindness and generosity, her sense of fair play (no add-on fees), her attentive communications. On no count were we disappointed. Not one.

The perfect reason to return!!

  • 5 of 5
As a former travel columnist I have developed a keen, personal "search engine" for finding uniquely exceptional properties and restaurants in various cities around the globe. You know the ones -- because you always remember them! Let me assure you that staying in the lovely apartment will make your visit to Buenos Aires unforgettable! I found it for my personal vacation and simply loved it! It is charming, quiet, well located and Anne Elizabeth, the owner, is the "frosting on the cake"!!! And --speaking of cake you might be wondering which restaurants I might suggest -- no problem I followed Anne Elizabeth's recommendations and they were fabulous -- yes, they, and this apartment easily make one want to return one day to this Paris of South America

Hervorragende Erfahrung in Recoletta

  • 5 of 5
3 Wochen lang haben wir diese sehr ruhige Wohnung in Bestlage von Recoleta in vollen Zuegen genossen. Schon bei der Planung war die Vermieterein, Anne Elizabeth, eine ebenso effiziente wie charmante Ratgeberin. Nach langem Flug kamen wir in Buenos Aires an, wo der Taxi-service zur Wohnung von der Vermieterin organisiert war. Bei Ankubft in der Wohnung wurden wir von der Vermieterin mit einem reichhaltigen Lunch begruesst. Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber und stilvoll. Sie entspricht exakt der Beschreibung auf der website. Gebaeude und Umgebung mit zahlreichen Cafes und kleinen Restaurants vermitteln einen Hauch von Quartier Latin in Paris. Fuer uns als Weltenbummler rundherum unsere beste Erfahrung mit einer Anmietung durch das Internet. Thank you, Anne Elizabeth. You have been absolutely wonderful and made our vacation in BA! We hope to be back soon.

Spectacular rental property!

  • 5 of 5
Anne proved an incredibly gracious and generous host. From our pre-trip HomeAway correspondence (through which she provided sought-after advice on matters we raised) we felt most welcome as we headed to B.A. to retrieve our child from a semester abroad. Anne's apartment was elegant, spacious and with all the amenities, including--important to us--powerful A/C for hot summer days. She had a breakfast meal ready for us upon arrival and was very generous with us, accommodating both an early arrival and late departure. Anne had extensive notes regarding apartment details as well as restaurants, groceries, sights and other topics of interest. The Recoleta apartment was located toward the end of very pretty, gated courtyard which insured insulation from any street noise whatsoever. In short, the four of us were happy as clams in the apartment and would gladly return there.

Quiet apartments are hard to find. Fully equipped kitchen and washer dryer. We used the lower bedroom and bath. Loft area has it's own bath. Anne Elizabeth made our stay in BA delightful. She greeted us with lunch and wine and had a list of restaurants and recommendations to experience. Walking distance to many sites and services.

Paradise in the middle of Buenos Aires

Great location and great apartment! The VRBO description was spot on as far as amenities, location and peacefulness of the courtyard. We will definitely stay here again if back in BA and would highly encourage our friends and family to stay here as well.
