Viejo Fox is just a couple of minutes away from the village of José Ignacio. José Ignacio is perfectly situated on a peaceful peninsula surrounded by sparkling Lagunas, cool pine woods and extensive ocean views. The village is edged by a golden beach, to the west is the tranquil Playa Mansa and stretching far to the east the windy beach or Playa Brava. Watch the great aerial video of José Ignacio and the Playa Brava beach near Viejo Fox.
José Ignacio started as a sleepy fishing village and although it still retains a laid-back vibe the small village is now home to beautiful architecture, contemporary art galleries and laid back beach restaurants. José Ignacio is a “barefoot-chic” destination with gravel roads, stylish pop-up restaurants, bohemian cafes, arty hotels and a relaxed informal atmosphere. Strict planning forbids buildings to exceed two stories and the village is a showcase for cutting-edge design, architecture and contemporary art, epitomised by the new Playa Vik hotel. Long popular with Argentinians, José Ignacio is now attracting attention from Brazilians, Europeans and North Americans. Except for a few frenetic weeks after Christmas, when the New Year is seriously celebrated and parties are numerous, José Ignacio remains a laid-back, peaceful place.
