Neighbourhood:

Recoleta is one of the premier neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires with beautiful architecture, parks, restaurants, cafes and shopping. Step out the door and any way you go puts you within easy walking distance of Recoleta's major attractions including:

The beautiful Plaza Vicente Lopez park where you can stroll, people watch and take a coffee from one of the many coffee houses across from the park including Cafe Martinez and Nucha (lovely patisserie). In close proximity to the park are numerous restaurants including the famous Los Inmortales home of some of the best pizza and empanadas in Buenos Aires, where you can also savour local dishes and mingle with the locals.

The Recoleta Cementary is a few short blocks from the apartment. Get lost wandering this unique cemetery and take a stroll through the history of this wonderful, unique city and country. Across the park from the cemetery enjoy coffee and a snack (or lunch) at La Biela - a large and beautiful outdoor cafe directly in the shade of a centuries old “gum” tree. Located directly beside La Biela is a Tourist Booth that can answer any tourist related questions you may have.

Also close to the cemetery is the Buenos Aires Design Centre, where you can window shop (or buy) at the Centre’s high-end furniture stores or the Recoleta Cinema and Mall - an enclosed shopping centre where you can pick up pretty well anything you may need. On the weekend, there is a large outdoor “flea” market, next to the Design Centre, where local artisans ply their goods at numerous stalls.

A favourite topic for anyone travelling is, of course, eating. Within a few blocks of the apartment are two major supermarkets - Disco and Carrefour where you can buy mostly anything you need to cook at home from breakfast, lunch and dinner. For your convenience the apartment has a grocery cart or, for larger purchases, delivery can be arranged for a nominal fee at the grocery store.

For those afternoon or evenings out, the area has some of the best restaurants in Buenos Aires. Close to home is El Mirasol and Piegari two higher-end restaurants located nearby in La Recova. El Mirasol specializes in Argentine beef and Piegari has excellent pastas. Of course, most restaurants have an extensive wine list where you can either discover or re-confirm why Argentine wine is some of the best in the world.

Less expensive, but wonderful local area restaurants include Rodi, Los Inmortales, Los Maestros, Josephina’s Cafe, El Fundador or Scuzzi. Additionally, almost every block has “confiterias/cafes” where you can eat great food at a reasonable price.

The Recoleta neighbourhood is ideal for walking - everything is in such close proximity. It is also centrally located and within easy driving/taxi distance to other great neighbourhoods like Palermo, Palermo Soho, Puerto Madero, San Telmo….

About Valeria Miller

I was born and raised in Recoleta making me a true Portena (born in the City of Buenos Aires). I love the city and, especially, the barrio of Recoleta with all it has to offer in terms of cosmopolitan lifestyle and featuring many shops, museums, art galleries, restaurants and coffee shops.

Valeria Miller purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Valeria Miller chose Buenos Aires

This was the apartment I bought for myself when I graduated university and started working. I loved the apartment and location so much I just couldn't part with it.

What makes this apartment unique

The things I love most about this apartment is the natural lighting, layout and central location within Recoleta - so close to it all. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION, holds true for this apartment as its located right in the heart of Recoleta.

cosy apartment in a great location

  • 4 of 5

A lot of thought given in furnishing and equipping the apartment. The kitchen had all that we needed for our long stay, which was almost 3 weeks, in terms of amenities. The apartment not backing on the road made the nights peaceful. Close to some great cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and more. The owner is extremely helpful and provided some great tips and always available via e mail. Would highly recommend the place.

Great location - apartment was clean and in excelent condition

  • 4 of 5

Great location close to restaurants, cafes and parks. The apartment is in well equipped and had all we needed. The internet was not fully funtional during our stay, this was due to a problem with Telefonica (the service provider), but Valeria and Pia were exceptionally helpful and responsive to manage and mitigate the inconvenience.

The apartment is very clean, quiet and you feel at home.

We have a wonderful time and would definitively stay here again.

I highly recommend this appartment

Fabulous and Charming Location in Recoleta

  • 5 of 5

Our recent 8 night stay in Valeria's apartment in Recoleta was just perfect. We have been visiting Buenos Aires and this area for the past 10 years and this is the first time we have stayed in this apartment. The location was just perfect - the apartment had all that we needed and was very quiet and comfortable. Valeria was available to answer any questions that we had and made sure to check in with us and see that all was ok during our stay. There are amazing cafes, restaurants and markets very near and the area is very easy to navigate on foot. We will definitely be happy to stay here again - whether for a short visit or for a longer one. Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome.

Comfortable flat in a great location with extremely helpful host!

  • 4 of 5

Situated in lovely Recoleta with easy access to downtown, parks, museums and restaurants, the flat is well-equipped with gas stove, washing machine, full bath, etc. The plumbing was a challenge and hot water was not always available, but Valeria and Pia were exceptionally helpful and responsive, with lots of good advice on where to shop for food and what to do in Buenos Aires. We had a great stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review, Dick and Carol. You were great guests and are welcome back anytime. I wish you had let me know about the shower taps (plumbing challenges) earlier and I could have quickly resolved the issue. Also, I've been in touch with building management regarding the lack of hot water which is centrally distributed. They are going to follow-up on that as it has never been an issue in the past. Hoping all your travels are great....... All the best! Val
