Our Apartment in Palermo Chico

Lots of people have asked me about what life is like for us in Buenos Aires so I wanted to share a bit about our apartment.

When we came to Buenos Aires in August 2014 looking for a place to rent, we had no idea how much time we would spend in our apartment.  This is where Ted works, where I spend time researching our next adventure, and where we come home to after hot summer days or rainy winter ones.  Luckily we love it!

It is a big sunny apartment in a modern building.  Our apartment building is the tallest building in Buenos Aires.  Since I get a little queasy with heights, we chose to live on the 10th floor (instead of the 44th), but the views are still great.  We have views of downtown to the south, uptown (incuding the parks and the suburbs) to the north and the river to the east.

Our building is located in Palermo Chico, right next to the museum of modern art.  We chose it because it’s close to parks, museums and not too far from the hip restaurant/shopping area (Palermo Soho/Palermo Hollywood).  It is a little bit quieter than some of the other areas of the city, so it makes it a good place to live.

The kids love the pools.  There is a heated one on the rooftop and a big outdoor pool that has a pool bar in summertime. Ted seems to love the ‘charla’ (banter) with the security guards. If he is late for our lunch date, I can usually find him downstairs discussing ‘football’ (his favorite team is Boca) or sharing a ‘mate’ (an Argentine herbaceous tea) with the guards.

I really like all the natural light, the upstairs gym, and the modern aesthetic.  Probably more modern than I would choose in Palo Alto, but hey, we are now city folks, so why not?
