Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Central Argentina / Province of Buenos Aires / San Isidro / Villa Ocampo
A charming house with a rich history, Villa Ocampo is the former home of Victoria Ocampo, one of Argentina's strongest cultural voices of the 20th century. Built in 1891 in an eclectic mix of British and French styles, the house became Ocampo's permanent residence in 1940. The influential founder of "Sur" magazine hosted such artistic luminaries as Albert Camus, Graham Greene, Le Corbusier, and Igor Stravinsky here. Since a 2003 restoration, the house has served as a museum providing an important look into Ocampo's life and career.

Villa Ocampo Reviews
This is one of the best places to visit if you’re around Buenos Aires: it is a gorgeous mansion up north from Capital Federal, once owned by great Victoria Ocampo, a pioneer in women’s rights and intellectual activist, you can visit the park, the house, enjoy a great lunch or tea, feel you just dropped into a different century. DO take the tour, the staff is truly kind and very well prepared.
Villa Ocampo, as a Cultural Observatory, has the mission to update the legacy of Victoria Ocampo to actively collaborate with the development of society in line with the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. The UNESCO Villa Ocampo Observatory assumes the task of capturing and disseminating knowledge on cultural diversity, creativity and heritage. It is a laboratory of ideas that calls for debate and reflection as a meeting point between the past and the present with a view to the future.
