Just as we were stumped about a place to stay in Colonia, Uruguay, we met Martin from Fierro Hotel (their blog)- a great coincidence; he couldn’t contain his excitement about Casa los Jazmines. The images he created in our heads as he went on and on, raving about how great they are, naturally sealed our decision in giving this place a try.

He was right. The place lived up to our expectations and much more. 

A 20 minutes drive away from the touristic, over-saturated hotels and generic restaurants of downtown Colonia, Casa los Jazmines sits close to the river, buried within the endless fields of hay bales and grape vines. The bright yellow property is beautifully managed and taken care of- from the garden, the decor, the personal touches, and the custom service. The food is made fresh upon ordering, right in their open kitchen; when Marcial serves, he gently explains the little touches he made upon each dish, from the lavender infused dressing to their homemade pickles and jams. If lucky, Carlos will be firing up the parrilla for a delicious spread of meaty goodness during one of the nights. Though the lunches and dinners are not cheap, the prices doesn’t stray too far from the food in the city, and the quality and effort definitely surpass anything you get in the city. Price? $180/night including the magnificent spread of breakfast.

After half a day wandering in the downtown, and venturing to the river side, we end up getting stuck in the property: swimming, reading, sleeping, eating, and doing absolutely nothing. Perfect weekend.
