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.
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.
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
If I could give this apartment more than 5 stars, I would. This wonderful apartment has everything one could hope for, with the added bonus of having Anne Elizabeth, the owner, as one of the most gracious and hospitable hosts ever. First, some notes about the apartment.
Too often you book online on the basis of reviews and photos, only to be disappointed upon arrival. Not in this case. If anything, the apartment exceeded my high expectations. It's exactly as represented in photos -- art-filled, beautifully decorated, well appointed, quiet, and in a terrific and safe location. The neighborhood is filled with wonderful restaurants, shops, and greengrocers. And it's within easy walking distance of numerous attractions in Recoleta and Palermo, including multiple museums and Recoleta's famed cemetery.
What makes the apartment even more special, however, is Anne Elizabeth herself. As others have mentioned, she refused to accept a deposit to hold the apartment (telling me that if it made me feel better, I could of course give her something in advance). Who does something like that in this day and age?! She contacted me before my arrival to ask about my needs, and stocked the refrigerator accordingly with fruit, yogurt, empanadas and the most divine squash ravioli, along with bottles of Malbec and water.
I was a first-time visitor to Argentina and a solo female traveler. Throughout my six-day stay, Anne Elizabeth regularly checked in to see if there was anything I needed. She recommended places to shop and eat based on my personal interests, shared with me copies of some of her favorite books, printed out online ticket purchases and boarding passes, and even filled a flash drive with movies she thought I would enjoy watching. She truly went above and beyond. And, Anne Elizabeth lives in the building, so she is readily available if a last-minute need comes up.
I've been singing the praises of Anne Elizabeth and her beautiful apartment to everyone I know, and look forward to returning in the future.
Anne was very welcoming and we enjoyed staying in her clean, well-kept, quiet apartment. The location was great; it was centrally located and allowed us to go around the city predominantly using the subway system. There are excellent restaurants around and nearby grocery/bakery/produce stores, just around the corner. We'll be back!
The apartment is spectacular: new, very clean and with style. Better as the pictures!! We enjoyed our days in Buenos Aires and look forward to going back to the same place. Nice neighborhood, very safe and close to everything. Highly recommended ! And the owner is simply the best. Thanks for the warm welcome Anne !!
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
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!
