Villa Ocampo, San Isidro

4.6
A charming house with a rich history, Villa Ocampo is the former home of Victoria Ocampo, one of Argentina's strongest cultural voices of the 20th century. Built in 1891 in an eclectic mix of British and French styles, the house became Ocampo's permanent residence in 1940. The influential founder of "Sur" magazine hosted such artistic luminaries as Albert Camus, Graham Greene, Le Corbusier, and Igor Stravinsky here. Since a 2003 restoration, the house has served as a museum providing an important look into Ocampo's life and career.

  • It is the house that belonged to Victoria Ocampo, dans de la Sociedad Argentina that destiny its fortune to support the arts and the letters. The park is beautiful, and the guided tour is worth it, you can have tea, but but don't expect too much from the pâtisserie.. It's open until 19 hrs. Today it is UNESCO heritage.

  • This is one of the best places to visit if you’re around Buenos Aires: it is a gorgeous mansion up north from Capital Federal, once owned by great Victoria Ocampo, a pioneer in women’s rights and intellectual activist, you can visit the park, the house, enjoy a great lunch or tea, feel you just dropped into a different century. DO take the tour, the staff is truly kind and very well prepared.
