Casa Anna, Garzón, Uruguay
London-based art dealer Martin Summers was an early champion of this town, just inland from José Ignacio. He built Casa Anna in 2007 and named it after his wife, Annie, who co-designed it. A low-slung estancia, it sleeps 14 in six suites (one is a dormitorio, with four single beds for the kids). The gorgeous gardens are punctuated by a large pool and a thatched-roof palapa that serves as a pool house by day and an alfresco cinema by night. As a bonus, chefs from Francis Mallmann’s nearby restaurant, the Hotel Garzón, can be hired to cook for guests (from $2,000 per night).
