A Mediterranean architecture house very beautiful and different. Very interesting to know, because it tells the story of the works of art of its creator, Paéz Villaro, and visit the beautiful house that took 40 years to build. Also, enjoy the wonderful views of the River Plate.

This is a very nice and weird construction over a hill in front of the ocean where the artist Paez Vilaró used to libve. Himself dedigned and build it. It is completely painted in white and does not respect any form. Inside with the same price you can see many Vilaró paitings which are really nice. Views of the Rio... More

Loved the architecture and his art. I was on a tour to Punta del Este and we stopped on the way. The views are spectacular and the way the villa was built is so worth a look. I would have purchased something, but honestly, the prices were outrageous. Took some very nice photos of the villa and the ocean.

Very curious construction, nice view, good to art lovers to see closely and know more about Carlos' life. But don't expect a big deal. 240 pesos Uruguayos the ticket to visit

Punta del Este is one of my favorite cities, for its culture, beaches, food, activities. Casapueblo is really beautiful and FULL OF SUN. It is located in Punta Ballena, not really near to the city center, so it is necessary a car. Definitely recommend.

Just an amazing view. Great place to have a beer and watch the sunset listening to the speech of the old owner.

If going on summer vacation to Punta del Este for first time, this is must visit place. The architechture is as unique as strange. This place offers the life story of an artist, deployed in an excellent way. You can enjoy from the veranda a great view of the bay and surrounding beaches.

It is an exotic place, just as the owner wanted. The price is a bit high, but worth it. The visit can be very fast, in one hour it is possible to see everything. You have to visit if you are in the east.
