During a visit to Buenos Aires, we had considered a visit to Uruguay, but were not sure where to look in Colonia de Sacramento. We were saved when Madi Lang of BA Concierge told us about a delicious bungalow, a ten minute ride outside of Colonia. We decided to visit for three days and what a treat!
We were met at the Ferry Terminal by Mario – one of the owners and builders of the inn – who gave us a tour of Colonia and a sense of history of the area.
He had not prepared us, however, for the beauty and tranquility of La Casa de Limoneros as it is nestled in a lemon grove with thousands of fruit-laden trees. Mario and his partner Sergio have built a very traditional hacienda with all of the creature comforts that one could want – including a beautiful swimming pool – while incorporating fascinating items from Uruguayan history in the construction of the building.
As hosts, they lead an excellent Team and everyone made us feel most welcome.
While we were there, we elected to have two dinners ‘en casa’ and were very pleased with the culinary creations that Mario created in the kitchen – not the least of which were his wonderful cold soups! All very enjoyable with some Uruguayan wines that he selected for us.
Overall, a wonderful three days with some interesting people in a beautiful location - we hope to return someday!
