    Linda House, is is slightly impaired. The people who work in the place is super friendly but would have to put a little more than batteries to samples

    The visit was very good. The neighborhood is the prettiest of Mar del Plata. The House is completely from wood and great design. It is organized as a cultural center, so the rooms are decorated so which remained after the death of Victoria. Also offer guided very well documented and with many anecdotes, always open to answer the questions of visitors. It really is a magical place for those who enjoy literature.

    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
