Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Central Argentina / Province of Buenos Aires / San Isidro / Villa Ocampo
A charming house with a rich history, Villa Ocampo is the former home of Victoria Ocampo, one of Argentina's strongest cultural voices of the 20th century. Built in 1891 in an eclectic mix of British and French styles, the house became Ocampo's permanent residence in 1940. The influential founder of "Sur" magazine hosted such artistic luminaries as Albert Camus, Graham Greene, Le Corbusier, and Igor Stravinsky here. Since a 2003 restoration, the house has served as a museum providing an important look into Ocampo's life and career.

In his house were housed visits of letters, art of the world and European nobility. Taking tea there is wonderful and its garden is magnificent, it takes you back to the past everything and your imagination flies. You can't stop going mostly in spring.
Excelente Casona de la Belle Epoque Argentina. Muy cuidada y con un tour instructivo sobre la vida de la familia Ocampo. Almorzar en su restaurante de cocina francesa, a muy buen precio, es un placer,... more »Excellent Casona de la Belle Epoque Argentina. Very careful and with an instructional tour on the life of the Ocampo family. Lunch in its restaurant of French cuisine, at a very good price, is a pleasure, to get out of the customs of lunch escunty in restaurants of the city. Refinement, stillness and a beautiful garden landscape. I recommend doing it at the tables outside. If it's winter, they're approached by stoves and blankets for the cold.
This is one of the best places to visit if you’re around Buenos Aires: it is a gorgeous mansion up north from Capital Federal, once owned by great Victoria Ocampo, a pioneer in women’s rights and intellectual activist, you can visit the park, the house, enjoy a great lunch or tea, feel you just dropped into a different century. DO take the tour, the staff is truly kind and very well prepared.
