Our home is a beautiful and peaceful 2 bedroom/ 2 bathroom duplex (90 m2 aprox.) in an excellent Buenos Aires location. It is a 1st / 2nd floor of a typical “porteño” building, built 90 years ago, and fully renovated in 2002 (high ceilings and spacious rooms). The apartment is filled with sunlight all day long, besides, it has a nice terrace where we love having our dinner on summer nights.
Downstairs there is a spacious living room (TV, DVD and video furnished), and two bedrooms, one with a queen sized bed and another with two single beds. Upstairs there is a big and sunny room, a kind of kitchen- dining room- living room with a nice view to the balcony. There are also two couches (“fouton”) where we lodge friends that visit our home eventually. You can do the same! We want our guests to make themselves at home.
Our neighborhood, called Palermo Viejo, has been recently renamed Palermo Soho. Palermo Queens, due to the cultural and gastronomic development of the area. Our home is at walking distance from the heart of Palermo Soho, which large streets, shaded by old trees, have become a fashion, vanguard arts-and-craft and design open market. There are also a lot of beautiful cafes and restaurants in the corner, in which tables on the sidewalks you can spend a good time drinking and reading the newspaper.
You will be immerged in the urban and dynamic lifestyle of the neighborhood, that allow, however, to meet friends and to share time with friendly people. Palermo is well situated in the heart of Buenos Aires, with a good access to public transportation (subway and buses).
We are a not-so small Argentinean family. Veronica is a researcher in Social Sciences, and a professor at the University of Buenos Aires. Gustavo is an engineer, specialized in construction. He works building and renovating houses. We have three daughters ages 6, 2 and 3 moths old.
We love living in Buenos Aires, and even if we are committed urban people, we are an active family that loves getting out into nature, and spending our time outdoors.
We have traveled extensively throughout Argentina, South America and Europe, we have exchanged homes before with friends and acquaintances in Paris, Dijon, London and Barcelona (not yet with this network). We lived abroad during our studies, in Paris and Florence. We love cooking gourmet meals (our kitchen is well furnished), reading (we have a lot of books on Literature and Social Sciences, mainly in Spanish but also in French, in Italian and in English), traveling and meeting new people from other cultures and lifestyles.
