The SpaceIf you are standing on the balcony or
looking out of the window, you may get the idea of being on a boat - but you will certainly feel more comfortable than in a ship´s cabin. The viewer´s position is above the cliffs with the best view at the ocean. It is nice to watch the waves, cruisers on the horizon and fisherboats. And you may even be able to see seals or whales - depending on the season.
Every morning you will have a direct view to the beautiful sunrise, and in the evening you can see the moon above the ocean.
It´s all a good mixture between the astonishing nature and the culture of an antique house.
The tile flooring (black and white) give us the specific atmosphere of the art-déco-house.
Nine persons may sit on the large table in the dining room or in the patio as well, or they may read before the chimney in the front room. There are lots of posibilities.
You will find sleeping acomodations for nine people in four bedrooms (2x2,1x4,1x1), which all have got their own bathrooms.
If you like cooking, you will like the kitchen, that has everything you need (microwave, coffemachine, espressomachine, grill, big fridge with freezer, nice dishes and glasses for nine).
A wonderful balcony with the best view to the seaside as well as a huge terrace, overviewing the garden, where you will see the setting of the sun in wonderful colours are in the first
In front of the house you will find a bank and a table to have your breakfast early in the morning, or you go to the patio to have your breakfast there, looking at the birds in the garden.
The garden is nicely closed, with walls all around, so it is very quiet and sheltered from the wind. There are a lot of palm trees and other plants, some comfortable canvas chairs and also a hammock.
You will find a fireplace to make your asado and a place for the the washing machine, and you may park two cars on the ground.
People say, that La Pedrera is magic - and you will feel what it means, when you are there.
Within some steps from the apartment you can reach the beach in front of the house. There is a stair in the wall of the cliff which makes it fast and easy to get there. The other two huge beaches, which have less rocks and are quite crowded during holiday season, are both reachable in a very short walking distance.
During the months from january till march you have free WiFi, in the other months the WiFi is limited.
You also have got a big safe, so you can store valulable belongings.
La Pedrera is a wonderful place with wide ocean beaches and great nature. Although the village nowadays has become very modern and exclusive, it´s still quiet, and you may be totally alone at the beach when holiday season is over.
The house gives you the posibility to spend some time in a very individual way - in an absolutly exclusive location. Guest AccessIncorporated in the house, there is an apartment (ex garage), but there are no noises or posibilities to disturb one onother.
You will rent all the rest of the house with two floors, four bedrooms, bathrooms, living and dining room and the garden all for yourselves. Interaction with GuestsWe live in Germany, so we do not have the posibility, to know our hosts, what I really regret, but during high season there is a Woman, living in La Pedrera, who is responsible for you during your stay. She will meet you at the beginning, show you all the secrets of the house, and afterwards she will make the check out. If you have a question or something is wrong, you may call her. The NeighborhoodLa Pedrera has been a little, small villige with only few inhabitants (49), but that has really changed a lot. In summer it is really crowded, and may be, that you are glad to have such a quiet garden. There are lots of surfers. Beside the house there is a very good fish restaurant with excusive guests, and on the other side you will find a house, where you may offer your breakfast if you like.
I like very much the Laguna de Rocha, a wide water reserve with lots of birds, and you may make a little voyage at the lomas de Rocha, if you have got a car, or you go to the north, direction to Valizas, where the fishermen are fishing fresh langostinos in springtime. Getting AroundIf you are not travelling with a car, you may go by bus. There are some bus stations in La Pedrera, so you can reach the villige directly from Montevideo, Brasil or the airports.
There are several buses of different companies, arriving every day to La Pedrera. Other Things to NoteThe situation of the house is delicate, because it is so near to the see. Therfore we beg you, to follow some rules (for instance: close the folding shutters, when a thunderstorm is arriving.
