Punta del Este hotel description

Casa Los Olivos was built in the early 1900's by a Uruguyan ranching family and was totally renovated in 2001 by a 4th generation member involved in international tourism.

It is an ideal venue for a small family who desires beach vacation but with more variety and luxury. OR equally - it is a marvelous local for a extended family/business group meeting or vacation for 2 dozen guests. It can be a barebone rental with total quietude or we can help you choose 3 meals a day and complete concierge service to provide you with a weeks worth of memorable activities. The choice is yours.

THe main house is a 6 room Palladian style villa with 12 foot ceilings. It comprises a library with underground wine cellar, a living room with fireplace opening onto a huge pavillion, a dining room for a big family, modern chef's kitchen, and two bedroom suites. The pavilion is surrounded by a parilla (BBQ) and screened in summer living room. The pavillion has HUGE views of the horse and cattle pastures - with a marvelous swimming hole in addition to the main pool. The front porch is trellised and overgrown by bouganivillea and jasmine - and is a perfect place for shaded teatime. It overlooks the entry court with parking for 20 automobiles. A short walkway from the front porch is a self contained casita (built 2001) with kitchenette, luxury bath, sitting area and fireplace. it opens onto a large screened porch overlooking the pastures.
THe landscaping surrounding the house is one of color and scents - from a vegetable garden, koi pond and bridge, herb gardens, and delightful flowers everywhere.
All of the bedrooms have their own fireplace. A two bedroom extension is in the works to enclose the pavillion on three sides with magnificent lion fountain.
The main gated entry road to the hacienda has a group of separate ranch buildings for the very large family or business group. There is a 4 bedroom ranch building with indoor and outdoor kitchens as well as a 2 bedroom casita In total there are presently 9 bedrooms and soon to be 11 bedrooms for guest use.
The location of the villa is ideal with easy access to beaches and Punta del Este as well as the services and sites of Montevideo. One can spend the day at the incredible varied beaches, be home for a horseback ride thru the pastures and groves, and a dip in the pool with cocktails before sunset.
Attention to detail marks the owners desire to welcome and sevice guests. THe property is run by a concierge from the local village who is available 24/7. You can shoose a bountiful breakfast to start your day, simple coffee/tea service, and huge nightime banquets for your group.

                                The Hacienda is located on an idyllic place in the middle of the country side, but yet, close enough to the capital if you miss the hassle and bustle. This place inspires relaxation and tranquillity. All you see around you is the horizon and beautiful prairies. It really hit the spot for us as we needed to decompress. I recommend this place for tranquillity and recharge 100%.

                                No hay palabras, que puedan describir la paz, la brisa, la vista y el servicio de “Casa de Los Olivos”. Regresaremos pronto… In planning our first trip to Uruguay, we decided to explore Montevideo for several days and then move out of the city to visit the countryside. “Casa de los Olivos” was an excellent choice. With a working farm surrounding the house, there are views of pastures and olive trees to the horizon. The facilities are first rate and the service provided was excellent. It is located about a 40 minute drive northeast of the airport. The location permitted us to make easy day trips to Punta del Este and Piriapolis and get back “home” in time for a dip in the pool and cocktails. The family oriented beach and restaurants of Atlantida are less than a 30 minute drive. What we enjoyed most was spending a couple of afternoons just enjoying the patio, pool, and parilla. Jaqueline was a marvelous hostess.

                                On an earlier trip I expored Buenos Aires and did the day ferry to Colonia. Decided I wanted a central location where I could be based to explore more of Colonia, Montevideo, Punta del Este and choose the Casa Olivos based on recommendations from US friends who stayed there. Turned out to be a perfect choice and it far surpassed any expectation I had about these areas. The ranch is far more beautiful than any photos can demonstrate. It is a large villa with many outbuildings - but is cozy enough that 2 can enjoy. The 6 main rooms in the villa are extraordinary in decoration and amenities. Since there were only 2 of us - I only saw the outbuildings. It is kind of hard to describe - all of the plantings and colors resemble Provence. The place was filled with hundreds of books - always a plus for us. Jaqueline picked us up at the MVD airport and served as our chef and guide to the area. She does her job very well. Everymorning were incredible breakfasts featuring many foods from their ranch as well as the neighbroing farmstands. Fresh peaches, pears, figs, tomatoes,onions, cheeses, sausages as well as local ranch meats. Dinners were spectacular. One day was spent exploring Montevideo and lunch at the Old Port area where there were dozens of parillas to choose from. Enjoyed the experience but one day there is enough. Second day was more of Colonia. There is something about this village that entrances us. Spent the whole day walking and shopping. Third day was a Punta del Este beach and lunch day. Dissapointed in the city. It was the shoulder of tourist season but was very glad we choose not to rent there and choose the ranch instead. It was close enough to make an easy day trip - but Punta seemed so Miami beach with little to do. Too typical. Jacqueline recommended a closer beach area about 9 miles away - Atlantida - which we loved. It was more of an old town and had more happening. Absolutely loved the tranquil beach where the Plata river meets the ocean. Some great architecture. BUT - the highlight was just chilling at the ranch. There is a locale farmstand run by a woman named Valentina - which was sweet. Incredible canned jams and home gown fruits - both sweet and savory. Pickled yellow banana peppers, grapes and apples in wine. Home made sausage and cheese. In retrospect - I would recommend a family choose the ranch and avoid Punta. For a family - a day of local fishing, horseback riding on the ranch - perfect
