El Encuentro

10 guests · 5 bedrooms · 6.5 baths
Escape to the secluded forests of Uruguay at this bohemian, lakeside villa on the outskirts of Punta del Este. Start your morning with a yoga session by the water’s edge. Then, sip tea next to the pool or catch up on some reading by the peaceful water garden. When you’re ready to hit the surf, dance the night away, or work on your tan, head to Punta del Este, “the Miami Beach of South America.” 
El Encuentro has a pavilion-style layout, with lots of high-ceilings and fans to keep that fresh air flowing. Indoor and outdoor spaces merge seamlessly, making it easy to enjoy the natural landscape of this private estate. A few steps away, in the forest, you’ll find a completely separate and fully-equipped villa, perfect multi-family vacations, and guests that desire extra privacy. The main villa is decorated with rich woods tones, natural stone, and state of the electronics, with numerous lounge areas, both inside and out. 
Close to home, the old fishing town of La Barra is a great spot for a stroll. Stop and take pictures of the colorful houses, seaside vistas, and gorgeous beaches. While you’re wandering, stop in at some of the antique shops and flea markets in town to find the perfect souvenir. For dinner, you’ll find incredibly fresh seafood at the restaurants that line the shore, as well as other international options like sushi and Italian. Later in the evening, La Barra’s nightlife kicks off at the many pubs and disco clubs.
