About Romain, Oliver and Hugues Beau de Lomenie

We are Hugues, Olivier and Romain, three brothers, all natives of France. We have been vacationing in Montebello ever since our parents built the house over 25 years ago to welcome their growing family, increasingly dispersed all over the world. Since then, Montebello has been the center of our family reunions and also a wonderful cultural enrichment into our lives. Today, we share our times between our respective residences in Europe (Hugues lives in Paris, Olivier in London and Romain in Venice) and we continue to live the tradition of our family reunions in Montebello with all of our children.

Why Romain, Oliver and Hugues Beau de Lomenie chose Maldonado

Montebello was passed down to us when our parents passed away. Through the years and many memories, Montebello has become for us and for our children our family home in Uruguay. Away from the busy world in a secluded nature heaven, we yearn to return to its peace and beauty. Montebello has also open our French family to the richness of the latin american cultures of Uruguay and Argentina. We have come to love Uruguay, from its beautiful open lands to its well kept secret splendid beaches, to its well educated, warm and hospitable people. Some of our best family friends are Uruguayan. We also enjoy its safe towns and cities, its legendary BBQ meats ('assados'), and its beautifully crafted leathers and wools. Today, Montebello and Uruguay are part of our family culture and we hope you will enjoy them as much as we do.

What makes this villa unique

Montebello is a very special place. Its location was handpicked for its unique position on the shores of the Laguna del Sauce, one of the most beautiful and exclusive area around Punta del Este. Its 12 acres gorgeously landscaped park ensures you will have the space and privacy you need to enjoy this special time with family and friends. Its unique style combines French provencal architecture with Uruguayan traditional touches such as its outdoor parilla area under the Pergola. Water is front and center at Montebello, between the swimming pool, the laguna with overwater deck and the nearby splendid white sand Solanas beach. Montebello will reopen your eyes on the marvels of nature, from the beautifully landscaped park, to the exotic birds and sounds all over the park to the legendary Puesta del Sol (sunset) over the Pan de Azucar (local mountain in sight of the house) and the Laguna del Sauce. The park and pool night illuminations ensure that you can continue to enjoy Montebello indoor and outdoor pleasures well past sunset.

Montebello is not a house, is a home.

  • 5 of 5

Montebello is not a house, is a home. We spend the most amazing four days with my whole family (12). The house is of course beautiful, the pool, the grill, the kitchen, every bedroom with it's own magic, the dining and family room, every square foot is wortg the stay. However, the most incredible thing about this particular place, it's how it make you feel the minute you walk out the back door to see the trees with the lake in the background. The morning breeze, the spectacular sunsets behind the lake, the sun light making it's way through the trees. Every single detail is one more gold star for this home. It's a place where memories come alive, where you won't have a vacation, you'll have an experience for a lifetime. It's a pace to remember, it's a place that we'll never forget, and we sure will come back soon.

We spent a long weekend and enjoyed very much!!! The house is roomy and well-equipped. The view and the park are just splendid and it really feels like home. It is a place so peaceful that you may stay for hours just staring at the water. For sure we would love to visit again!!!

Un sueño!

  • 5 of 5

La casa es un sueño en todo sentido. Es una casa con alma, vivida y disfrutada, uno se siente privilegiado de poder quedarse en ella. Los espacios son amplios y cómodos y la vista a la laguna del sauce es espectacular. Romain nos tuvo mucha paciencia en la previa ya que no confirmamos por problemas logísticos hasta dos días antes y los caseros Alejandro y Magdalena fueron muy amables ya que fuimos en pleno invierno y nos prepararon la casa con estufa y abrigo de cama para 16 personas estuvieran calentaras.

Gracias de parte de toda la familia.
