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.

Why Anne Elizabeth chose Buenos Aires

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

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

Historic oasis in Buenos Aires

  • 5 of 5

Am an 'architectural tourist' on my first trip to BA and spent 8 days here this spring. Set in the middle of Recoleta, this is perhaps the quietest, most comfortable VRBO rental I have experienced. Located in the back of an intimate, well maintained set of courtyards, the apartment has high ceilings, wood floors, gorgeous furnishings with all kitchen and bath appointments one would expect. It is an easy walking distance to the sights of Recoleta in a safe, well populated area with lots of restaurants, stores and attractions. Best of all was Anne Elizabeth: beyond knowledgeable, beyond helpful, she is your long lost family member who made our stay perfect. thank you Anne Elizabeth. EAC-San Antonio, Tx

Comfortable apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week, along with another couple. The apartment is ideally located in the Recoleta neighborhood, a short walk from shopping and many attractions. It is situated in an interior courtyard, which minimizes any street noise. With a fully-appointed kitchen and a beautiful small dining room, we were able to buy fish and pasta in the nearby shops and enjoy home-cooked dinners in the evenings. Anne Elizabeth was very helpful in navigating around the city, and very accommodating. We very much enjoyed our week in Recoleta!

The Best

  • 5 of 5

I have had a number of international rentals in the past several years. They have all been wonderful. However, this was a cut above. Ann Elizabeth gave us a level of attention and service one doesn't get from this type of rental. Her help in getting to BA, understanding the culture, guiding us to the best places to shop, sightsee, or eat was beyond compare. She was never intrusive, only helpful. The neighborhood was just what we were looking for. It is in upscale Recoleta and quick walking distance to all the shops and restaurants this area has to offer. However, it was just enough off the beaten path to be a quiet place and a real neighborhood, which we relish. The apartment itself is airy, spacious and beautifully maintained. We wanted for nothing in terms of supplies and cleaning services. You can't go wrong renting this apartment and treating yourself to the gracious attention that only someone like Ann Elizabeth can provide.
