Refined elegance in this beautifully restored colonial residence in Buenos Aires' upmarket suburb, San Isidro
Built in 1892 as a rather grand summer house, Hotel del Casco still offers all the pleasures of staying in the country.
The relaxed atmosphere and the elegant building’s original features sit well within a calming minimalist décor.
This is a peaceful location, in the picturesque historic quarter of smart San Isidro, with its long waterfront and marina; the ideal place to return to after the city’s frantic pace.
From the leafy cobbled street, wrought iron gates glide open to reveal a grand classical colonnade, and – inside – a stunning, light-filled central patio, with its original mosaic floor and high ceiling of stained glass supported on slender Ionic columns.
After your excellent breakfast, lounge here elegantly on white sofas among ferns, take tea, and plan your day.
10 rooms open onto this central area, with two more upstairs: all high-ceilinged, and grandly proportioned, with charming bathrooms.
Across the gardens at the back of the main house, 8 spacious suites are similarly decorated, with views onto the pool.
A charming, very civilised alternative to downtown Buenos Aires.
