Make a holiday rental home or property in Uruguay your home away from home

Uruguay is becoming known as one of South America’s finest holiday destinations, as people return with stories of sensational beaches, wonderfully vibrant cities and eye-popping scenery. As one of South America’s smallest countries, its numerous attractions are fantastically close together, making tours of Uruguay a genuine pleasure.

Things to do in Uruguay

The stunning Atlantic beaches in Uruguay are a huge attraction. Covered in soft, white sand for the vast majority, these unspoilt beaches extend for hundreds of miles. There is always a huge amount of room on the beach to sunbathe and play beach football, and the warm, clear waters of the Atlantic are ideal for surfing holidays, sailing trips and deep sea fishing excursions from Uruguay accommodation.

Uruguay is a very flat country, and the interior consists of flower strewn plains and rolling meadows that lend themselves perfectly to horse riding holidays. Riding holidays in Uruguay always leave visitors longing to return and filed with an enormous sense of rejuvenation and joy. Cattle ranches adorn the landscape, and it is from here that the world famous steaks that you will undoubtedly enjoy during your stay in Uruguay holiday rentals come from. The steaks are almost certainly the best in the world, and there is certainly no shortage of them!

Places to visit on holiday in Uruguay

The capital of Uruguay, Montevideo, is a small, bustling, colonial city which is extremely easy on the eye. There are many styles in the buildings of the Uruguayan capital, harking back to various stages in the country’s history. Montevideo is a fantastic place to relax and soak in the culture, especially as it sits on a stretch of glorious, white sand lined coastline.

The little town of Colonia del Sacramento is a particularly popular place to visit, set in an absolutely stunning coastal spot, and famed as an old smugglers’ haven. There are plenty of bars and restaurants, and offers a wonderful place to enjoy cosmopolitan Uruguay in luxury.

Weather in Uruguay

If you are used to British climates, Uruguay has a fantastically warm climate all year round. Winters are mild, with daily peak temperatures in the coldest months (between June and August) remaining around 10-15˚C, whilst the summer, which falls during the British winter time, sees temperatures soaring to a blissfully warm 29˚C with plentiful sunshine. There is no distinct rainy season, with small amounts falling throughout the year, but never hanging around for more than a day or two.

Travel to Uruguay

The main entry point to Uruguay is located a little outside the capital of Uruguay, Montevideo. The Carrasco International Airport (MVD) receives direct flights from Paris (CDG), Madrid (MAD) and a good range of American airports, including Miami (MIA).

We were able to use their washing machine on the roof terrace and hang our clothes to dry on the clothesline. For a week we felt as though we lived in the neighborhood and got to know grocery stores and the folks hanging out on the street. The area is full of contrasts between unrenovated and renovated buildings with fantastic small places to eat and shop. The only drawback for some might be the fact that the toilet stall is also the shower stall so one has to squeegee down the walls and floor after showering (think bathroom on a boat). We would definitely stay here again. Very clean with good hot water and pressure. The fireplace, for which they supplied wood, was a wonderful luxury.
