*** new 11-metre Infinity pool ***
At Viejo Fox you will enjoy stunning modern architecture, outstanding ocean views from the large roof terrace and balconies and a large infinity pool in the peaceful garden. It's just steps from an empty beach and situated in the heart of the natural Arenas de José Ignacio, an area surrounded by pine woods and Acacias with abundant bird and wildlife. Here you have the tranquillity and peace of an ocean retreat whilst being minutes away from José Ignacio with its restaurants and cafés.
Great design includes a glass wall in the living area with a wrap around balcony and many super comfortable sun loungers and outside sofas to relax and enjoy the sunsets and ocean views overlooking the famous José Ignacio lighthouse.
The spacious first-floor living room with its floor to ceiling windows has comfortable sofa's, large wood burner, TV and speakers. There is a fully equipped kitchen and two dining areas, one in the large living area and a second relaxed eating area on the outside terrace by the large Parilla and pool.
The master bedroom on the first floor has ocean views, a dressing area and a modern ensuite bathroom with bath. Two further bedrooms on the ground floor overlooking the garden can be either twin rooms or extra large double rooms. A fourth connecting room with a single bed can be used as a bedroom or a second lounge. Viejo Fox has a large garden with hammocks and peaceful secluded areas to relax and a fire pit for evening entertainment.
A couple of minutes walk from Viejo Fox are miles of wild ocean and empty beach. In summer the beach is great for sea fishing, horse riding, surfing or just resting and strolling along. In winter penguins and sea lions enjoy the beach. The views are breathtaking and extend from José Ignacio to Laguna Garzón. Near Viejo Fox and tucked away in the woods are some of the best restaurants in José Ignacio. Marismo, Namm and Jardin de Sarava are just minutes away.

Some comments from our guests last year “Our stay at Viejo Fox was fantastic. Photos don’t do justice to the beauty of this place. The wrap around balcony and terrace provide unbeatable views of the the ocean and Jose Ignacio. Federica was very helpful in every single detail. We’ll be back”. Gustavo -Argentina /USA.
"The house was amazing. With a wonderful sea view and an pretty modern and architectural look. Highlight was the roof terrace and the barbeque". Niko and family, Germany.
***Important please note ***
We wanted to keep the peace and tranquillity of the house so we have not installed satellite TV. There is a DVD player and we have children and adult DVD's. The wifi in the area has been improved recently but it is not super fast and during very busy times can be slow and occasionally patchy. It's usually fine for emails but struggles to download films etc There are some Bose wifi speakers. The cashpoint at the Ancap garage is a little unpredictable good to get cash at the airport or in Punta Del Este.
It's great, Uruguay is nearly 95% renewable energy. The pool is 11 meters so you can have a proper swim. We heat the pool from 15 - Dec to 01 March. In November, the first half of December, March and April we can heat the pool but there will be an extra charge. During the winter months, pool heating is not available.
