About Sebastien Rocco

Ella es Alejandra Volpi, mi mujer festejando un cumpleaños en El Delfin, mi nombre es Sebastien Rocco y vivimos en Valencia, pasamos unos buenos 3 meses al año alli,

Hace unos 20 años compramos mas de 1000 metros de terreno diseñamos y construimos una casa preciosa en un sitio paradisiaco del bosque de Montoya, a dia hoy El Delfin no paro de crecer y mejorar para convertirse en una casa que no fue pensada para alquilar sino para disfrutar y eso se nota en cada detalle, mas alla de la belleza natural de La Barra a veces se hace dificil salir de la casa, y la galeria con parrilla y horno de barro garantiza sobremesas fantasticas.

Sebastien Rocco purchased this villa in 1996

Why Sebastien Rocco chose La Barra

La ubicacion de El Delfin fue muy meditada y es perfecta, a 250 metros de la playa y cerca de Manantiales y La Barra, pero alejados del ruido y el trafico, con un jardin fantastico que garantiza intimidad. Una decoracion muy cuidada que hace que siempre se esten viendo imagenes agradables y especiales que se quedaran grabadas, y a 1 kilometro de vida nocturna intensa y fantastica.

Para disfrutar de dia y de noche, naturaleza fantastica y ocio de primer nivel, en un entorno unico.

What makes this villa unique

La cocina es importante para nosotros de modo que es muy completa y esta muy bien integrada al resto de la casa, asi como la parrilla y la galeria, a pocos pasos una piscina de forma singular y cascada que genera una sensacion agradable, mas alla un jardin amplio y una casa con baño separada del chalet principal, en el jardin un pequeño quincho para descansar muy fresco.

EL Delfin esta pensado 100% para el disfrute total y todo el que paso por alli nos felicita, no solo por la casa, ademas por el servicio, hacemos lo imposible para que la estadia sea perfecta.

Soy Uruguayo y Veraneo en Punta desde niño y junto a mi mujer ayudamos a que todo sea perfecto.

Elizabet la mujer que trabaja con nosotros desde siempre es una mujer que tambien se desvive por nuestros inquilinos, ella va tres veces por semana un par de horas a arreglar todo, tambien puede ser contratada mas horas si asi lo desean, tambien hace funcion de Niñera.

Charming, authentic and perfectly located for everything.

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the pristine, modern home typical in Uruguay, this house isn’t for you. If you desire an authentic local’s living experience than El Delfin is the perfect home. Artistic and authentic in style, there is an an abundance of relaxing and pure enjoyment to be had here. Comfortable, perfectly situated to hit all of the favorite places and an easy walk to the beach. The host is responsive, provides great recommendations, and even preselected our meats to grill—an authentic parilla is on the property. There are wonderful places to sit and read or nap all over the property with amazing artifacts from around the world to gaze at. A friendly neighborhood, it felt like a home away from home. A perfect place to spend Christmas in Uruguay.

Great Location and Property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at el Delfin over New Years. The house has an amazing location on Montoya beach between the towns La Barra and Manantiales. The outdoor space of the house is amazing, with a pool, lounge chairs, an outdoor canopy bed, a very large BBQ and outdoor dining table. While the house can fit 10, I would say it most comfortably sleeps 7 -- I will point out that Sebastien was very upfront about this! La Barra was a truly beautiful and amazing place to visit and el Delfin made it even better. We cannot wait to return!

Sebastien was extremely helpful prior to our stay and provided us with recommendations for everything from restaurants, to activities, to which beaches to visit. He was also very responsive during our stay whenever we had any questions.

Life in Shangri-la

  • 5 of 5

This is indeed a Shangril-la property, with paths leading to a Koi Pond, "relaxation pavillion," and other quiet seating areas. Even if you are 4 people, you can find a place for privacy here. It is so serene, and enhanced with southeast asian diety statues, and Moroccan decor. The pool is small but functional, and the large outside table in the covered patio area allows you to "live" outside, without the full sun. The relaxation pavillion is really special. The service staff were efficient and friendly, and responsive. A short two block walk to the Beach, and wood to walk in as well. The bathrooms were fabulous, with lots of hot water. This was such a great experience for me, I was able to do Tai Chi daily, in the different areas outside, relax in the swinging chairs, swim at will, and gaze through the tops of the surrounding pine trees.

Owner's Response: Dear Diana, this is the kind of comments that makes all of our efforts worth to make the experience to spend some days at El Delfin something special. I love the fact that you were able to practice Tai Chi, it means we did a good job creating a calm and relaxing environment where you can ease your mind. Thanks to you and Barbara you are very welcome again. My very best regards, Alejandra and Sebastien.

A Lovely Villa in which to spend Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend the villa belonging to Sebastien and Alejandra for its ideal location, tranquil surroundings, many seating areas, sufficient beds for a family, eclectic international decor, well equipped kitchen and welcoming and flexible hosts. They arranged for a lovely barbeque or asado to be held on the patio so we could invite friends from Punta. Each day we walked to drove to a new beach to explore and drove as well into the countryside and to Montevideo. there were some fantastic restaurants in Jose Ignacio, Manantiales and La Barra but mostly we bought fish at the Punta port and cooked and relaxed at the house in the evenings. We would return in a heartbeat! My only recommendation is to have a bigger coffee pot for all those who want a cup of coffee by the pool in the morning. Thank you again for the memorable and lovely Christmas week we spent at your charming house.

Fantastic Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week here at the end of 2011 - it was perfect! The property is beautifully kept and ideal to relax on vacation. A short walk to the beach and located between La Barra and Manatiales, the location could not be better. The owner helped us organize an awesome traditional parilla (Uruguayan BBQ) the night we arrived - we had family and friends over as well. Thank You Sebastian!!!

Super vacaciones en La Barra

  • 5 of 5

La pasamos muy bien, estuvimos muy cómodos. La casa tiene de todo. Usamos mucho la parrilla y la rueda con el disco de arado.

En otras oportunidades alquilamos casas, del "Delfin" siempre vamos a recordar el estanque con las carpas y las estatuas y el mural de Paez Vilaró.

Un abrazo.
