Estancia Vik Jose Ignacio, located 20 kilometers northeast of Punta del Este, has emerged as Uruguay’s premier international destination. The unique juxtaposition of landscapes, vast rugged countryside and pristine beaches, allow guests to experience the incredible diversity of Uruguay and an experience that touches upon the locations culture, art, and design. Situated on 4,000 acres, Estancia Vik is a traditional Spanish colonial structure featuring white adobe walls and a red tin roof designed by architect Marcelo Daglio. The structure is 50,000 square feet, with more than half of that space made up of interior patios of outdoor space – courtyards, gardens, covered walkways and an herb garden located within the Estancia walls. Here, Life+Times takes a look inside. Indulge.
