Welcome to Villa Gesell

In the 1930s, merchant, inventor and nature lover Carlos Gesell designed this resort of zigzag streets, planting acacias, poplars, oaks and pines to stabilize the shifting dunes. He envisioned a town merging with that woodland, but it wasn’t long before high-rise vacation shares began their malignant growth and trees disappeared.

The town sprawls outward from its leafy nucleus, with most services located on Av 3, three blocks in from the beach.
