After extensive architectural tours, and a few spirited nights out practicing your best tango steps, you may feel the need to escape Montevideo for a spell. Where to? How about right in town? Victorian pillars welcome guests to this garden-surrounded stronghold of peace and quiet, giving way to an eclectic interior mix of mid-century modern furnishings, and more classically inspired details like bold staircases, and carved-wood library walls that look to hold more stories that their books.
Each suite boasts plush-yet-stylish furnishings that re-paint ‘50s style with a luxurious brush. Bathrooms are sprawling, and use marble with a wanton indiscretion that’s much appreciated.
When the sun shines, head for the tea room before taking a swim in the large pool, surrounded by lush local flora. Later, retire to the cozy wine bar, where leather bergère couches make for the perfect spot for sharing stories over Tapas and a bold glass of red.
