  • La Barra



The most talked about hotel in La Barra, Villa 108 is a quaint yet airy shabby chic boutique hotel, meticulously decorated with vintage pieces and clad entirely in sheets of zinc and recycled materials. The six-room pousada has a residential feel, and each room is unique. Behind the enormous vintage front door you will find rooms filled with eclectic antique furniture and decor, including huge windows from an old Montevideo railway station (which fill the rooms with natural light), one-of-a-kind artwork, a fantastic library full of dressers lined with antique books and globes, and other salvaged accessories dating back to the 1890's-1940's.

There are many common areas including a library filled with antique books, a living room with distressed leather and wood sofas, a fully equipped communal kitchen, and past that is the dining room, which opens onto the outdoor patio. The lovely gravel patio has dining and seating areas and a beautiful olive tree.

There are six spacious bedrooms, which all have a unique feel and their own names (i.e. "Back to School" and "Estudio Arquitecto"). The bedrooms range from loft-style rooms with king-size beds, to classroom-style rooms with single beds. All have comfortable beds, large windows with nice views, well-equipped bathrooms freestanding bathtubs and porcelain sinks, walk-in closets, and TVs & iPod docks.

The villa provides an incredibly unique experience, and there is no doubt it is the place to be in La Barra.

Area description

La Barra is just a 15 minute drive from the famous, high-rise and glamorous Punta del Este, an old time favourite amongst the Americas’ elite -both past and present- where you can dabble in the many restaurants, bars, shops and boliches.

La Barra itself enjoys a more bohemian vibe, and is still quaint thanks to the absence of high-rise towers and dominance of houses of all styles, shapes and size. There is something for everyone, with quirky restaurants, terrace parties and bars and an abundance of galleries, collectors corners and antiques stores that dot the strip that runs parallel to the golden beach hidden behind the dunes.

José Ignacio is a half an hour drive away, and is home to the most successful beach bar in the world, La Huella, a long golden beach, a fantastic carniceria renowned for its sandwich milanesa, and a host of exclusive residents.

Manantiales, another quirky town lies just along the beach and is another hotspot for all people rich and famous, young and old and a great place to enjoy the sun and surf.
