La Alberca is a "chacra" style villa in La Pataia with close proximity to Punta del Este, Punta Ballena, and the Solanas beach. Chacras offer rustic country side dwellings, in this case as 3 separate houses sharing a pool, BBQ, and a football pitch.
Chacras can be more idiosyncratic than hotels or modern apartments, therefore guest must be tolerant and help preserve the houses. Two of the houses were built completely out of wood, mostly lapacho from Brazil. The other house is the more common brick and mortar Uruguayan construction. As such the houses have different character and caring needs.
