Located at kilometer 164 of Route 10 (Interbalenaria) in the department of Maldonado, Uruguay, there is a small group of houses that make up a small and exclusive place: Punta Piedras, an oasis of tranquility and good living just 15 kmts from Punta del Este and integrated into the wide area that goes from La Barra to José Ignacio, called Manantiales.
This coastal strip formed between Route 10 and the sea is delineated by only 4 streets, Los Caracoles that runs along its entire length parallel to the sea and the route, curving at its ends, where it opens the main accesses to Punta Piedras, and Estrella de Mar, Los Mejillones and las Almejas streets, which cross the neighborhood and lead to the beach.
Punta Piedras is located on the side of a gentle hill that descends to the sea, for this reason all the houses in this area, whether they are in the first or second line, have a magnificent open view of the sea thanks to this geography. In Punta Piedras no residence is more than 100 meters from the beach.
These characteristics make this exclusive resort one of the places with the highest hierarchy and real estate value in Punta del Este, in addition to the fact that the houses that populate Punta Piedras have a special charm, they are not large mansions, but rustic-style houses designed by renowned architects , where stone and wood predominate combined with modern architectural styles where cubism, rationalism and traditional chalets with multi-water roofs predominate. This architectural eclecticism, added to the environment that still retains some of its wild characteristics, with dirt streets and houses with their gardens on the beach, make up a unique and unique style.
For years Punta Piedras has been a haven for rest and summer vacations for prominent international personalities. Prince Albert of Monaco, the Rolling Stones, model Naomi Campbell, Eva Herzigova, among many others passed through this spa.
