  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple of architects of Uruguayan / Italian nationality who have lived in Italy for 20 years and who returned to Uruguay three years ago, precisely in the city of Piriapolis, in the department of Maldonado.
    We live in a farm 5 km from the beach of Piriapolis, in a land of 5 hectares with eucalyptus forest, a tajamar and a house under construction with wonderful views of the sea and the hill of Pan de Azucar.
    We have a small organic garden where we are learning organic cultivation, and in which to share and deepen knowledge with our guests.
    The project that we want to develop includes the construction of a winter garden, the planting of fruit trees and in a second stage the construction of small cabins.
