The 480 hectares Fasano Las Piedras estate is a special setting, combining spectacular views of almost Tuscan countryside with British country house elegance, all conveniently located within minutes of the most beautiful beaches of Uruguay.
With panoramic views of the countryside, the 22 bungalows and ten deluxe bungalow suites offer spacious private terraces, with king-sized beds and all the latest mod cons designed to maximise comfort and privacy.
There are three restaurants to choose within the resort; Fasano serving regional Italian cuisine, Las Piedras for informal Italian trattoria-style cooking and the pool bar for guests who prefer snacks and appetisers poolside.
The resort offers a spa with treatments, heated indoor pool, saunas and steam room, fitness centre and six massage rooms. There is an outdoor pool carved into the natural rock face, nearby golf courses, equestrian facilities, tennis courts and a private beach offering jet skis and organised boat trips.
Located in a privileged area at the highest point of La Barra city, Hotel Fasano has a private beach on the river Maldonado and one of the most beautiful views of the setting sun off the coast anywhere in the country. Downtown La Barra itself, which attracts the high society of South America for its nightlife and fine dining, is just minutes away.
