                    There is a classic scene in every reality show where the cast is delighted to discover what an amazing home they will be living in. Our group of six had a similar experience wandering through this gorgeous castle for the first time. The rooms are nicely decorated, the living area is spacious. The infinity pool (although not heated) was a refreshing escape during the hot Uruguayan afternoons. I can't even begin to describe how amazing the sunsets are in this place....it's magic. And the cook, Shirley, is just lovely. A few things that could be better - for a house this large, it definitely needs faster internet speeds to meet the demands of adults trying to keep tabs on business back home. The house has several nooks that offer some privacy, but a few additional bushes to block the neighbors house next door would do wonders to transform this into a true oasis. The beach was lovely to walk along, but the water was a bit dirty due to its proximity to the Rio de Plata. Nonetheless, this place is amazing. You're staying in a beautiful, romantic castle on the beach, just minutes away from town. That simply can't be beat! I'd highly recommend you make this castle your own for a few days.

                    Recommended for: Sightseeing, girls getaway, families with young children, pet owners, adventure seekers, romantic getaway, families with teenagers.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: A well traveled British business woman with a young family and a love of beach houses and a passion for stylish interiors.

                  Why the Owner Chose Punta del Este:
                  In 2005 we were seeking refuge from the harsh northern winter and discovered El Castillo whilst strolling the beach one morning and that was it! After the briefest of discussions I had secured my most unusual - and certainly most expensive - souvenir, and one that certainly couldn’t fit in a suitcase, let alone the plane home. Punta Del Este is the South American Côte d'Azur, a unique blend of St Tropez and The Hamptons. Uruguay is South America's second smallest country and - for many Europeans like me - an undiscovered gem that the Argentines, Brazilians and Chileans have been keeping to themselves for many years. With a mild and temperate climate, stunning beaches, safe and welcoming streets, abundant wildlife and sophisticated night life Uruguay - literally the river of the colorful birds - is the country for all seasons.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  The castle is nestled into the dunes at Solanas Beach and overlooks a stunning seascape. It is a wild and romantic retreat yet being only minutes away from the sophistication and glamor of Punta it really is the best of both worlds.
