Aegean-style holiday home turned boutique guesthouse on a sandy bluff overlooking the beach in chic and fashionable Jose Ignacio
Cloth awnings flap like sails in the sea breeze. A stripe of sand beckons beyond the dunes. Smiling staff serve early afternoon breakfast under a bamboo pergola by the pool complete with swim up bar. This unpretentious all-white inn still feels like a private home in the (once sleepy) fishing village of Jose Ignacio complete with historic lighthouse (faro), 35km west of brash Punta del Este. Jose Garcia-Arocena extended his own family's summer home to include 15 rooms, all but three with private decks or balconies overlooking the pool and unspoiled beach, 50 metres beyond. Expect rustic-chic cosy comfort - whitewashed walls, plank floors, sheet-draped loveseats, cushioned sun loungers - punctuated with sleek marble bathrooms and occasional splashes of colour.



Jose Ignacio is a small peninsula located 35 kms from Punta del Este. This hidden gem is known worldwide for its long and quiet beaches . Jose Ignacio is inhabited by fishermen and settled land owners, who strive to preserve the imprint of a dream town.


Our special rooms - our biggest and most comfortable – are almost all on the top floor – they have private terraces with exceptional views of the sea and sunset. Breakfast can be served in the room at any time you prefer.

The superior rooms are different from each other, but all maintain the same level of quality.

The standard rooms are on the ground floor and overlook the pool and garden . They are very spacious and keep cool in the summer.


Breakfast is served after 9am. We will also bring it to your place of preference, whether it would be your room, the pool or in the library.
