  • It was very nice to meet her, and see photos from the past that was just sand and the House in the middle of nowhere, now covered and sheltered by a forest of beautiful with different varieties of plants. It is recommended to learn on a gray day.

  • If you visit the forest of Gesell, you can not miss the visit to the second House of the founder... not to be missed Carlos Gesell history and as a man he could achieve tamed the dunes... Great story to share with the kids.

  • A good place to understand where is the city of Villa Gesell, know the reason for the vegetation and the idea of its founder. The place is very cute, of course more promotion of the place with some attractive package for tourists.
