As the corneja flies, it’s only thirty miles from downtown Buenos Aires, it’s on Uruguayan soil, it’s the home of the only other Four Seasons in South America, and it’s going to be one of the region’s most sought after destinations in the coming years.
Carmelo has been a well kept secret since the Four Seasons Resort was completed in 2002. Argentines and other international visitors have enjoyed the privacy and exclusivity of the town for the past several years, but now Carmelo’s charms seem to be reaching a wider audience.
The latest evidence? An article today in La Nacion regarding Buenos Aires real estate trends features a photo of a new mid-rise development….in Carmelo.
With a population of only 17,000, Carmelo residents and visitors enjoy the classic Uruguayan coastal mix of towering pine forests and clean beaches with proximity to Colonia by car and Buenos Aires by boat.
Fortunately Carmelo’s amenity bar was set very high, as the par-72 championship golf course at Carmelo Golf was recently named Uruguay’s premier golf course by Golf Digest. Building on that accolade, the new wave of development in Carmelo appeals to BA buyers looking for a beautiful place to unwind across the river, and new projects range from mid-rises to golf villas to fractional vineyards and luxury chacras.
