Canvasing Buenos Aires, Argentina
Sean stays in a countryside castle and explores the traditions of Argentina’s famous gauchos. He learns that Tango is much harder than it looks and finds inspiration in the Argentines’ passion for dance that lead to his painting “Tango”.
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Upon entering the French style palace, guests are greeted by an incredible marble staircase that invites them to explore the three floors which house the large bedrooms that sleep up to 16 people. La Fortuna offers a wide range of activities for guests of all ages and interests, and the House Concierge is there to coordinate every last detail. Without a doubt one of the most outstanding aspects of La Fortuna is the friendly and experienced staff of 8 led by the House Concierge, a Chef, Housekeeping staff, gardener, laundress, and their very own gaucho Don Chazarreta who takes care of the horses and drives the antique carriages that are on the property.
Almagro, an area in Buenos Aires which borders no less than eight other neighborhoods, is often overlooked by tourists. It therefore remains an unspoiled, authentic and appealing slice of middle-class porteño life.
