Refurbished for 2011, the latest addition to our luxury beach house collection is close to the heart of Punta Del Este - the South American Cote d'Azur, a unique blend of St Tropez and The Hamptons. This unique Punta Del Este beach house is available for short breaks, vacation and holiday rentals or hire as a corporate venue or for location shoots. Nestled into the dunes at Solanas Beach the castle sleeps up to 14 in air-conditioned comfort and boasts an infinity pool set into an expansive deck overlooking a stunning seascape: a wild and romantic retreat yet only minutes away from the sophistication and glamour of Punta.
A unique and s...tylish beach house:
Central Great Hall
Five individually styled suites
Turret Roof Terrace
Private beach garden
A castle on the beach is not the commonest sight, let alone in Punta Del Este; so a stay at El Castillo is an iconic experience. The castle is a wild and romantic retreat yet offers luxurious and comfortable accommodation; with a large beach view deck, ample gazebo, a large traditional Parilla (the Uruguayan barbecue), heated infinity pool, private beach garden and turret roof terrace with stunning views.
The elegant Great Hall is the heart of the castle, interconnecting the Dining, Drawing and Kitchen Breakfast rooms; and opens out onto the beach front deck and infinity pool. The kitchen is fully equipped and designed to cater for a full house of guests. There are five individually styled en-suite bedroom suites, one on the ground floor and four on the first floor. There is a family room on the lower ground floor, a mezzanine library and staff accommodation.
El Castillo Punta del Este nestles in the sand dunes of Portzuelo beach in the famous and chic South American resort of Punta del Este; at once private and iconic. The castle and its setting has been designed with the outside in mind and features a large beach view deck, romantic gazebo, traditional Parilla, infinity pool, private beach garden with children's playground and a unique turret roof terrace with stunning views.Read more

Left on 12/20/2012 for a stay in March 2012 | Uruguay: a well kept secret
We rented "the castle" in March, toward the end of the high season and found ourselves in paradise. The house is wonderful, lots of places to get off by oneself and read or nap and always with a view of the ocean. Breakfast on the terrace watching horses and their riders gallop by or walking on the beech with few if any other people was heavenly. The Castle is close to a small but well stocked grocery, 2 bakeries and a quick run into Punte each morning to the pier got us fresh fish for dinner each evening. Some of us did short excursions each day but a few just sat and enjoyed the view. Dinner on the enclosed front patio was wonderful. Houseman Leo was always ready to help with any question and I'd recommend having Shirley come each afternoon to help prep and be on cleanup for dinner. All in all we loved every minute of our stay at the Castle.
