Planning on a spot of winter sun over the next few months? You could do a lot worse than consider the Fasano Hotel in Uruguay.
Set in 480 hectares of tranquil scenery just 15 minutes from Uruguay's happening Punta Del Este beach scene, the Fasano is a super-relaxed combination of private houses, bungalows and swimming pools.
If you get bored of the slow but stylish pace, there's always a woodland walk or a spot of jetskiing on the nearby river.
Better still, just order a drink at the pool bar and save your plans for the day after tomorrow.
