Situated in San Telmo, the most enigmatic barrio of Buenos Aires, this warm and enticing loft offers a perfect refuge after a long day of discovering the mysteries of Buenos Aires. The loft is on the second floor of a characteristic turn-of-the-century building.
Two blocks from Plaza Dorrego and two blocks from Puerto Madero, you’ll be within walking distance of two of the most intriguing neighborhoods of Buenos Aires—San Telmo, among the oldest, and Puerto Madero, the most modern.
Consistent with the turn-of-the-century architecture of the building itself, the interior design combines sensual and dynamic colors giving it the feel of a Toulouse-Lautrec painting. It recalls Paris of la Belle Époque and the Moulin Rouge — bohemian, enjoying dual-moralities, celebrating the hidden vices of the upper classes as they delighting in their freedom from prevailing conventionalisms and stereotypes.
The sofa divides the section with the kitchen, desk space, downstairs bathroom and laundry area from the living area which is ideal for relaxing with a book or listening to music. Every detail from paint on the walls to the appliances in the kitchen to the fabric of the sofa was handmade by the interior designer which gives it an intimate and personal touch.
San Telmo is more than a furnished apartment; it’s a home. Because we’ve stayed in too many of those vacation rentals that look like they were furnished with the abandoned bits found in family members’ attics, unwanted furniture stuck randomly in an apartment with zero consideration for space, we’ve paid attention to the details and created a home we’d love to live in. You’ll love it, too. A spiral staircase leads to the bedroom and master bathroom. The parquet floors turns to a metal support letting in light from below and creating an airy, spacious ambiance and looking out onto the living room, its paintings, and windows.
Cobblestone streets and balconied mansions make San Telmo the most traditional barrio of Buenos Aires. The boundaries of the barrio are the streets Chile, Piedras, Av. Casero y Defensa, Av. Martín Garcia y Av. Paseo Colon (where the loft is located).
You’ll want to explolre San Telmo’s Casas de Tango, small traditional restaurants known as bodegones, antique bars, and trendy shops. Day or night, San Telmo is full of activity.
