  • We went to tea. The food is caserita but tea isn't in threads. The room where they serve it is coming a little less. Anyway, the villa Victoria is beautiful and we had time.

  • It is a magical place, the House has the presence of Victoria Ocampo in each ricon. I feel that the furniture has not been kept entirely, but at least some things are and that makes its presence live. Garden dream and care. Luck that is lovingly cared and protected and that this continues so for future generations.

  • The House is beautiful, but the attention of people who welcomes you is terrible, I went to the guided visit and told me that they did it because there were few people
