I enjoyed tremendously to be in this house. Beautiful place. Victoria Ocampo was one of the most prominent women of her times, an Argentinean woman to be proud of throughout time and social boundaries.

I loved visiting Villa Ocampo. She was a magnificent woman and her home is beautiful and the same as when she lived there. Many famous people visited her home and the photos and letters of some of them are still there.
