About The Owner
We are a very international family with three young kids. We have lived in Brazil, Chile and France, and we currently live in Palo Alto (Silicon Valley), California.
The Owner purchased this villa in 2007
Why The Owner chose Punta del Este
I am a native Uruguayan, married to an American. We wanted to maintain close ties with our family in Uruguay and have a home that could fit us all under one roof. Our home in Punta del Este has become our beautiful retreat from the fast-paced world and our 'home away from home.' Because we cannot travel there as often as we'd like to during the year, we've decided to open it up for other families to enjoy, allowing more to become familiar with this beautiful country.
What makes this villa unique
We arrive to a freshly prepared home w/ clean linens immediately ready to enjoy. We always utilize the friendly maid service to make our stay even more comfortable and have even hired a cook to assist us. In the mornings, we drive a few minutes to the local bakery for freshly baked biscochos and the daily news and return home to enjoy our breakfast while gazing out over the bay and ocean. My wife works out in the gym before we head to the beach by walking down to the solarium and wading through the water. While at the beach the family enjoys walking, reading, playing soccer, and swimming, but we usually end the day with a quick dip in our own private pool, counting all the yachts that have docked in the bay. Around dusk, we gather on the upper patio to applaud the sunset before dinner, which is often an asado (grill) of meats or fish.
The trip would not be complete without a trip to La Pataia, a small dairy farm (15 minute drive) complete with a petting zoo, horse back riding, and an outdoor cafe for a pancake of dulce de leche and cafe con leche. The kids adore this. WE also often hire a tennis coach for the kids and enroll them in equestrian classes.
We have our favorite restaurants in Punta del Este (10 minute drive), Lo de Terre and L'Aubere, for fine dining and many pizzerias or local fresh seafood restaurants for more casual meals with the entire family. Afterwards we stroll downtown, window shopping, and finish the evening at the favorite ice cream store Freddo's where most of us choose a generous scoop of dulce de leche granizado flavored gelatto. You can find families strolling the beach walk until 1:00 in the morning, but we are usually in bed by then.
From our home, you can take short excursions to Jose Ignacio beach (modern yet rustic beach resort 45 minutes away), Colonia (a historical, quaint town 3 hours away), downtown Montevideo (1hour drive), and even Buenos Aires (a 45 minute flight from the local airport).
