The apartment below belongs to a close family friend who summers in Piria. It is availble for rental from mid November to mid March. It’s a 2br+den penthouse located in Cordon (Montevideo), within walking distance of Montevideo’s main shopping district and downtown… Our daughters often walk through the area at 1am.. We consider it quite safe.
Specs: 120m, penthouse, 2br+study, fully furnished, full kitchen, TV. This isn’t your usual furnished short term rental. The owner lives there the rest of the year. It’s immaculate and very nicely appointed.

To view the pictures in detail, click on them. The last 2 images are maps. The first is the street map from the site http://188.8.131.52/es/a2.asp?vista=MDCA&pais=Uruguay . The second is a google image of the area. The apartment is just above the centrepoint. If you have Google earth, you can navigate the entire area, and look around. The National Library is a block away as are every kind of store imaginable, including supermarkets, laundries and drycleaners… all within a few blocks. The national bus terminal is within walking distance, several blocks East of the apartment. From there, you can catch a bus to all the towns in Uruguay or get a connection to Buenos Aires, San Pablo or Rio de Janeiro.
