ESTANCIA VIK JOSÉ IGNACIO
JOSÉ IGN A CIO, U R U GU A Y
N E I G H B O R H O O D 5 miles from José Ignacio Town
Grab your chicest gaucho garb and head to Estancia Vik José Ignacio, an ethereal 12-suite
estancia set on 4,000 acres of rolling plains, perfectly located near the beach and restaurants.
Beyond its classic white adobe walls lies a fantastical world of bold architectural design and
funky artworks, created by Uruguay's most acclaimed contemporary artists. (The living
room's central, four-ton white sculpture and Google Earth-inspired ceiling are surreal!) Spend
your days playing polo or by the pool, and enjoy lively evenings that last until dawn. You'll love
the colorfully chaotic, tin-walled parrilla - a barbecue room with open pit.
Lunch or dinner for two, once per stay.
Drawn to a particular painting or piece of art
in the estancia? The concierge can arrange a
private meeting with the artist.
