La Posadita de la Plaza – Colonia del Sacramento

The moment you step past the door of La Posadita de la Plaza you feel it. Warmth, homeliness, a touch curiosity – maybe even a sense of adventure.

And then you meet the man behind it all – Eduardo Alvares Boszko. This charismatic guy lives and breathes photography, which is evident in his gallery and store where he sells a lot of his work. This is someone that has an eye for it. Texture, composure, depth, honesty and rawness – it’s captivating and inspiring.

A true talent in all respects.

Eight years ago Eduardo and his family lived behind his gallery on leafy Plaza Mayor in the heart of town. Now it’s home to four individually styled rooms; one upstairs in the same building and three others around a leafy terraced garden filled with lavender, jasmine, mint and creeping ivy.

That’s not all that you see is this small oasis in Colonia. Tucked in amongst all of the greenery are numerous small sculptures and colourful antiques and collectibles – surrounding a plunge pool and lofty wooden deck that affords views of the waterfront – all the way to distant Buenos Aires.

Each of the rooms have their own quirky touches. Maybe not as much as Eduardo’s worldly collection in the rest of the hotel, but enough to give them a unique touch and, most importantly, plenty of character and comfort.

Big comfy bed, quality linen, TV & DVD player, fridge, safe and en-suite bathroom. Oh, that bathroom!

We stayed in Suite Amarilla, where the bathroom walls feature rendered polished concrete dotted with artwork, naturally lit with an architectural skylight.

Breakfast is enjoyed in amongst Eduardo’s collection; a cosy room that’s filled with the aroma of bread just from the oven and freshly squeezed orange juice.

The spread includes flakey croissants, muesli and cornflakes, French preserves, Uruguayan dulche de leche, Twinings tea and Lavazza coffee.

Starting my day crunching into a croissant fresh from the oven, then smothering it with dulce de leche is one pleasure from La Posadita de la Plaza I’ll remember for a long time. Thanks for the suggestion, Eduardo!

A very big thanks to Eduardo for hosting us.
