Buenos Aires is an extraordinary mix of cultures and geographies, it is blessed with an excellent climate, and it is the capital of one of the world's last remote countries where one can feel truly relaxed and at peace with nature. This apartment is a haven of peace and tranquility right in the heart of the city and within walking distance of some of its best shops, restaurants and attractions.
The spaciousness that such high ceilings provide is unique and so is the tranquillity that comes with being able to completely open the living room onto a wall of greenery.
Our own chauffeur will pick you up at the airport and drive you back for your return. He will also handle the keys. He is reliable and charges the standard rates (he does not charge for waiting).
If required, we can arrange a chef and staff for a special evening at home (the charge in BsAs for that service is reasonable). The chef cooks everything at your apartment and comes with a waiter. Of course, the clean everything before leaving.
Recoleta is the most established and the most central of Buenos Aires' exclusive residential areas. It is home to the city's top hotel, the Alvear (10 mns walk from the apartment), where high tea is an exercise in people watching and overall a delightful experience.

The Recoleta Mall houses some of the city's top movie theaters while the Patio Bullrich Mall on Posadas street has the top Etiqueta Negra clothing store as well as many other labels.
