  • The House is lovely, very warm environment, good attention in the tea house. I'd like to conduct one greater number of exhibitions, enabling artists to show their work given that there is plenty of space. The Park is beautiful and delicate :)

  • The writer Victoria Ocampo House where rested in the summer in the city. Norman-style house is wooden and brought disassembled from Europe and I work completely in the city. Today it operates as a cultural centre and it can be visited daily

  • I went to the villa Ocampo twenty years ago. Today I see it very impaired and zero maintenance in a place that is part of our history and our culture. I would appreciate a little attention and care. The value of the entry is symbolic: $20 do not allow even the maintenance of the garden.

  • Really a beautiful place, very tasteful architectural and landscape, many species of plants very well maintained, thanks to the climate of the area are very lush and well bushy, for those who like gardens and well planned spaces really a visit forced
