Via Verde rise above the acacia and pine trees at a small fishing village called Punta del Diablo in northern Uruguay. Located near the village’s center, this green B&B stands right where the luscious Santa Teresa National Park begins. Its name — Spanish for green way — refers to the luscious road towards the sea, as well the Argentinean-Basque couple’s own journey to a more sustainable life and living space.

Via Verde’s passive orientation and compact design protects the home from strong southern winds that blow in from the ocean. With plenty of outdoor areas and decks spanning three levels, this sweet B&B is the perfect place to chill out and enjoy sunny weather. And if the sun gets too strong, there is always a relief in one of the social shaded areas at the back of the cabin.
