Posada del Faro, Jose Ignacio

If the phrase ‘cool elegance’ sums up the style and décor of Posada del Faro, words like ‘spontaneous warmth’ and ‘natural friendliness’ describe the welcome you’ll receive when you arrive. The posada is a modern take on a traditional Uruguayan inn, and it’s run by the family who grew up within its walls. So, in many ways, it’s the natural place to stay if you want to experience the lifestyle of a small fishing town as part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Uruguay.

Jose Ignacio is a dreamy sort of place, nestling beside long, quiet beaches and a brilliant blue sea. Numerous small fishing boats are pulled up along the shoreline – when they’re not out chasing down the ‘catch of the day’ – for the array of local restaurants.
