About Martin Varsavsky
I am an Argentine/ Spanish entrepreneur, founder of seven companies in the past 20 years. I love to travel with my family especially to those special places where we have our own amazing houses. Casa 31 in Club de Mar, is one of them.
I take a lot of vacations. Around 10 weeks a year of vacation. But only one week in which I am truly disconnected and on vacation. My other 9 weeks of vacation are devoted to family, friends, sports and meditation. Meditation in the sense of thinking deeply about some problem that I am trying to solve. I've had my best ideas for work while on vacation. Maybe because I think my work is a vacation. Because I love what I do.
Martin Varsavsky purchased this house in 2003
Why Martin Varsavsky chose Maldonado
We used to come to Uruguay to get away from everybody we knew. Now everybody we know comes to Uruguay, and I don’t just mean everyone we know from Argentina, that was always the case. I mean a lot of people we know from Europe and USA as well. And they keep coming in growing numbers. And they, like us, still wonder why they like it so much. Now let’s clarify. Everyone I know comes to Jose Ignacio, or near Jose Ignacio, they find Punta del Este ugly. I do as well. But they find the area between La Barra and Laguna Garzón along the coastline just beautiful. The farms, the beach houses, the restaurants, the overall scene. Now what is sad though, is that most of those who come here do not see the countryside. I do every day as I go on my mountain bike rides.
What makes this house unique
Our house stands in a coastal landscape, and was built only with local materials: colonial tiles in the roofs; and limestone, granite and lapacho wood on the floors and walls , proposing an uncommon harmony between a private and intimate space and the vast ocean that can be viewed from its corners.
