Rooms are basic but confortable, the view has no rating, simply FANTASTIC. Restaurant with good food and wine however service may improve a little.

You really don't get to see anything. It goes down a side of a cliff and from the outside you only see the entrance to pay and a wall. If you are just stopping for a photo opportunity, there is no good place to get...More

I became a fan of Paez Villaro when I visited this place. Not only it is an original house, but also is full of Villaro's spirit. There you can see his paintings, his ideas, the use of colors.... Worth visiting 100%!!!!!

While we were driving to Casapueblo our guide told us that she didn't like Carlos Paez Vilaro's art while she was younger ... it took years to understand his greatness. Maybe she was preparing us what we were about to see. I can understand her...More

It was worth seeing the casa because it is a very unique architecture. However you really do not get to see it per se, because all but 5 rooms are private. It is almost totally a hotel and private home. It's best just to look...More

If you are staying in Punta, casapueblo is worth a visit. However, the whole set-up was a little cheese. And, you only get to walk around a small part of the building. Most of it is now an hotel. The views of the ocean are...More

Interesting place! Art, history, architecture. You must go to see sunset (and listen to a wonderful poem by Carlos Vilaró)
