Located in sleepy fishing town turned socialite stomping ground is Estancia Vik José Ignacio, one of South America’s most exclusive retreats. This ranch combines incredible design, personalized service, eco-friendly practices and an unparalleled collection of contemporary Uruguayan and international art. For those in search of peace and privacy, the property sits on 4,000 acres and boasts a traditional Spanish colonial structure with white adobe walls and a red tin roof. The building is 50,000 square feet, with more than half of that space made up of interior patios of outdoor space – courtyards, gardens, covered walkways and an herb garden located within the Estancia walls. There are a plethora of venue spaces to host a shindig and photo-ops from every angle. From the front this may look like your average Estancia, but don't be mistaken, not only is Estancia Vik filled to the brim with interesting art from Uruguayan artists, but also has as a full sized polo field overlooking the Laguna de Jose Ignacio .
