- The art scene is surprisingly dominant, producing works that call to mind an abstracted form of nature. The cuisine is pared down to the most primal elements; the country’s most famous chef has the soul of a poet and the curiosity of a wilderness scout. Nothing is what it first seems in this accidental republic.' 'So when I say you need to go to Uruguay, it’s not just because I love the place, but because it’s true.

We spent a lovely week in Villa Thalassa last February. The house is quiet and private but at the same time family-friendly and convenient. It has beautiful architectural and design details that create a soothing and relaxing atmosphere. We also made much use of the garden, for dinner parties and barbecues. Great to be so close to the sea and a block away from the main street! We loved to be near the much famed bakery and restaurant La Linda. So nice to get hot croissants in the morning! The house in itself has many rooms and we were easily able to accomodate all of our 10 guests. Overall, great experience and can't wait to go back soon!

About: After many travels that included Bora Bora, Bali and the South of France searching for that one place that could satisfy all my dreams during my brief vacations I discovered Uruguay and it's extraordinary appeal: it is truly 'time out of mind' - the quiet beauty of a primarily agricultural country mixed with all the exotic appeal of a vibrant and intense Latin culture.
Why La Barra:
Beautiful minimalist rustic design juxtaposed with all modern amenities.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quiet, peaceful, unique location within easy walking distance of excellent restaurants, beaches and vibrant local village atmosphere.
