Sofitel Hotel,Arroyo Street, Gallery nights and why not Lighthouses.
Topic: Gallery Nights BA

Sofitel Hotel, Arroyo Street, Gallery nights and why not Lighthouses. Argentina is returning to an improved cultural life, new cultural centers are coming to life daily, art museums, the rebirth of those once famous Porte?an cafes, bands of street musicians, the growth of artisans fairs as well as markets for collectors, the daily artistic street shows, as well as many more that are being held in theatres of Buenos Aires. All this is putting this city, once more in a central place within Latin American culture. Favourite spots: Every Barrio -neighborhood- is coming back to life, showing in every corner some cultural ambiance... even on the train, when traveling back and forth from work, passengers enjoy great folk music played by street musicians. What's really great: All this, plus this city's amazing architecture, blending the chick modern areas as Puerto Madero and Recoleta with the colonial Monserrat and San Telmo, adding some of the bohemian style of Palermo Viejo and the lights of Microcentro (downtown BA and the most famous Corrientes Av which was renamed as the Bookstore Av.) make of Buenos Aires a place one must visit at least once in a lifetime! Accommodations: Tips for the Traveller that enjoys good living. Straight down Arroyo St, located in one of the most important and luxurious district of Buenos Aires is the Mianovich Tower. This Neoclassic evocation of a light house reflects upon a 1920s atmosphere of elegance under the name of Sofitel Hotel,Buenos Aires.The origianl owner of the Hotel and building,wanted that every ship sailing into the docks bringing imigrants to Argentina, would be able to see the lights on its lighthouse like tower, and know that they had a room there for them. Gallery Nights. Surrounded by art galleries that are currently exhibiting superb porte?an and European art, this historic and artistic treasure invites you in through an internal promenade of crystal ceilings.Every last Friday of each month, all are invited to Gallery Nights. Restaurants: Le Sud, is in the same building,the restaurant in this the Sofitel Hotel,a petit and very sumptuous liberal Art Dec? styled restr? with a splendid and discrete service, is a perfect opportunity for a delicious and intimate meal. The menu at noon offered us an impeccable selection of several excellently handled prix fix?e dishes. Codfish dices on a spicy cream souse laid on a puff paste and vegetables crust combined a strong flavor fussed with the delicacy of the fish, is one excellent dish. Also highly recommended, is the exquisite duck confitte ordure followed by an delightful rabbit roast on a soft french mustard cr?me. Desserts are ecstasies delicatessens, such as the worm wrapped apples or the three chocolate terrine. All generously accompanied by a fruity Merlot. Just an excellent choice, a treat for your soul. As we leave, on our left we notice La bibliotheque, a magnificent option that invited us to return to this superb site for a late brunch.


So if you are interested in Art, Design or Antiques, and you are travelling to Buenos Aires, Argentina, or to Santiago, Chile or even Montevideo, Uruguay and need to buy and export these items or only need tips and travel information, please feel free to email us…….Please feel free to contact Bob Frassinetti with thsi email address: Email: Bob Frassinetti.

What is Art Dealer? Buenos Aires Art Dealer Editorial Buenos Aires Art Dealer is a trimestrally issued magazine on Art, Antiques & Collectibles made or found in Argentina. Our country during the last few years experienced an outstanding growth in tourism, this inspired us to offer the visitant an alternative mean to get to know the city, its beauties and treasures. So we aim to complement the city's "natural" virtues such as tango and its outstanding gastronomy with the possibility of rediscovering the marks of our own cultural, historical and esthetic evolution. Buenos Aires is one of the most important Latin American cities, for it's a cultural, artistic, commerce and fashion center. This breath taking city offers the best of South America: the perfect blend of Latin and European styles. It's high class architecture, excellent gourmet restaurants, top hotels and sights make of this city a must in every one's life. The one hundred barrios porte?os described in many tangos are home of all of them. Landmarks of Buenos Aires, each neighborhood -barrio- has a life of it's own, including local variations of language and art. Historically treasured, the city of tango has much to offer to tourists and locals. For the traveler seeking art, antiques and collectibles items, we offer a tailored tour to suit your needs as well as this periodic magazine for both locals and occasional visitors who enjoy the pleasures of life.

Martin Garcia Island on the River Plate, wheres that?
Topic: Martin Garcia Island

Martin Garcia Island.Island Paradise & Lighthouse, the oldest one around in Argentina. See Image Gallery of the Book on Faro's,Lighthouses:

Link to Photo Album Travel Lighthouses, Argentina

Thursday, another sunny day in BA, and a bit of wishfull thinking and planning for a important production on "lighthouses" that has been going around in my head for some time, it all started with this article, Martin Garcia Island,Isla Martin Garcia: a one of a kind getaway, or some kind of undiscovered paradise on the River Plate.....

Some 30 minutes away from downtown Buenos Aires is Tigre, a riverside
location home to great attractions such as beautiful fruit markets,
handcrafts and all sorts of wooden furniture open air shops. Arriving to the
Martin Garcia island can be done either by boat or by taxi plane. Unlike the
other islands in the Argentinean delta -earthy sediments formations- the
Martin Garcia island is a volcanic formation and an emergence of the mass in
Sierra de la Ventana. This has set the basis for an amazing combination of
nature, birds, flowers, trees that make of this place a great option for all
sorts of alternative tours, ecotourism, cultural and historical walks and of
course a great option for those who want to take some time off the city's
noise and clutterness.
The historical background of this island is just amazing, all sorts of
personalities -such as one of Argentina's most famous presidents Juan
Domingo Peron, the famous Nicaraguan poet Ruben Dario, as well as the
worldly known Dr. Maza who discovered the vaccine to chagas chose this
beautiful place as their home.
The old colonial constructions in the center of the of this beautiful town
blend together with other no less beautiful buildings that express the
American and French aesthetical influence in those sensitive and delightful
designs in a very art nouveau style.
From the center of the island one can appreciate one of Sarmiento's hidden
botanical skills, for he had put all his energy into politics during the
late 80s of the nineteenth century, as we appreciate one beautiful poplar
woods he himself planted.
Not far away we can see one of Buenos Aires famous lighthouses built in the
late years of 1890. It has lighten this island's coasts for more than one
hundred years. The building shows clean and strong lines, inside, a snail
ladder leads us to the highest point of the island from were we can enjoy an
amazing view.
In the area nearby the town's center, there's a place that has been
christened "Barrio Chino". Many tourist guides have mistakenly regarded this
place as a Chinatown. The reference is just an oposite other, for during the
seventeenth and eighteenth century sailors approached the island seeking
some love to buy -prostitutes, to which they kindly referred as "chinas",
which is a very common way to refer to women in the Argentinean pampas, not
to the Asian women. It's a very interesting visit to do, specially for the
deep cultural significance, the chinas getaway for local sailors at a
paradise island.
And of course, while touring around the island the Panaderia -the bakery- is
a place no one should miss, for their sweet bread is outstandingly perfect
(former president Carlos Menem used to fly in his private plane to the
island specially to buy this bread, though some experts in politics assure
this was just an excuse to meet up with some less respectful people of
questionable moral) and for the great art nouveau architecture of the
building that has remained intact.

All this makes of this island a great place to visit.
The Martin Garcia island also takes advantage of its natural beauty and
peaceful atmosphere with excellent accommodation options for those who wish
to relax and enjoy some days of pampering in contact with nature. The
beautiful and only lodge in the island is very simple and comfortable, Bed & Breakfast, book in advance....
nothing better to go with this atmosphere than a good dish of heart made
comfort food.
A paradise location just a few minutes away from the city.

One way to get there is by Taxi Plane:

The Buenos Aires Toy Museum.

All inclusive toy hunting in the city of Buenos Aires,with Bob Frassinetti.....

Travelling to Argentina has become one of the hottest vacations ever. This wonderful country has much to offer to its visitors who choose this southern location to relax and enjoy the best of Latin America at a very much European styled city. Buenos Aires, Argentina's capital city has always been the place where all the trends converge from Europe and the States and are adapted to the Latin American market. Toy collectors very well know about this, for Argentinean toys of renamed international brands are one of a kind item for many of them have been slightly altered to the taste of Latin Americans though keeping the original features. All and all for many decades Argentina was the chosen location for multinational firms to set a local branch of their companies working together with native firms to produce all sorts of toys: Barbie, G.I.Joe, My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake, diecast toy cars, He-Man, are just some of the toys that had been locally produced. Together with them, local companies developed native versions of worldly treasured toys. It's impossible to avoid the importance of Argentina within the world of toy collectibles.

For all those toy collectors there's a perfect vacation in Buenos Aires. During ten days you can come and stay at one of BA's most beautiful Bed and Breakfast at a room specially decorated for you as a personal show room with all those vintage toys you love so much. Your home for the next ten days will be furnished with 100% original vintage toys and objects. This is not just a theme hotel, but a custom made room specially arranged to your delight and passion. The selection of the objects for the room is personally handled by the team of specialists of the Buenos Aires Toy Museum which is internationally acknowledged for its work within the antique toy world -research works on each and every item in the Museum as well as a great job in the toys' conservation.

Each of the daily activities is planned in advance with you in order to plan the trip of your dreams. We'll hunt down those one of a kind toys through off the path markets in Buenos Aires as well as visiting renamed markets and fairs where thanks to our work during the past 6 years we've developed contacts with fellow collectors and specialists that are constantly working in the vintage toy quest. Those local companies we've talked about before are not regularly open for public, but for we've been working together with them in order to recuperate and systematize the history of Argentinean toys we'll take you on location to see the fabulous dream makers in action; or visit some of those firms that are now out of business but the company has been kept intact after they shut down production.

And, also thanks to our daily work for the last few years we've contacted and interviewed some of the most important toy entrepreneurs of the country -such as Buby, Muky, and many others- with which, if planned in advance we could arrange personal interviews, with the minds behind the objects.

During your stay in Buenos Aires you'll be able to enjoy the best of the Argentinean cousine and culture.

These custom made tours for toys collectors are personally handled by the director of the Buenos Aires Toy Museum, who's a specialist in the subject and knows very well the vintage toy world of Buenos Aires. Ten days, all inclusive vintage toys tours through one of the world's most beautiful and interesting cities is just the perfect choice for those collectors who enjoy life and its pleasures.

If your partner, with whom you enjoy so much travelling together, does not share your passion for vintage toys, this is no longer an obstacle for each of you to enjoy a wonderful vacation without the need of sacrificing your passion. We acknowledge the fact that people have different interests an that there's no need for one of them to do something he or she doesn't care much for. That's why we arrange custom made tours for each traveler, for those who love toys and those who whish to come to relax and enjoy the Glam and luxury of Buenos Aires, its sophisticated stores, high class spas and amazing cultural alternatives. Some of the activities can be arranged to be done separately though some others together so each of you enjoy the best this city has to offer.
