Pueblo Garzon

Pueblo Garzon is an unusual small town. Originally it was the first stop on the new railway line, built by the British, c.1900 from Rocha through San Carlos all the way to Montevideo. The town grew in the 20’s and the town square of 1 hectare bears witness to their ambitions.
Route 9, is still the main road to Brazil but it used, in those days, to pass conveniently through Pueblo Garzon. Now it is 12 km away and the railways have long gone causing nearly everyone to leave the town. But what we have inherited in Pueblo Garzon is the original appreciation of a place that had good ‘energy’ for want of a better explanation and the superb trees they planted, so many years ago. Francis Mallmann – the great Argentine/Uruguyan chef, – first spotted it and his hotel, now 6 years old, is an oasis of charm and gastronomic excellence.
Casa Anna can be rented as a whole unit or as individual suites. We can arrange self catering with maid service or all meals can be prepared by Francis Mallmann’s team from his Hotel Garzon next door. There is superb horseback riding with Julio the local guide and amazing opportunities for birdwatching. Or watch the stars from the observatory with a 10 inch Meade computerised telescope. Yoga and massage are available and enjoy the delights of “Lucifer”, the charming restaurant run by Lucia Soria.
In Casa Anna there is Wi-Fi throughout and a media room. In the evenings, the pool house becomes a cinema with a big screen.
