Money and glamour in Patagonia
In the last few years, the Argentine Patagonia has experienced an unprecedented real estate boom.¬†Many rich personalities have acquired huge estancias, great mansions and built unbelievable houses.
Villa La Angostura¬†is one of these sought after places by magnates,¬†artists, politicians and businessmen.
We can mention businesswoman Amalita Fortabat who last year bought 30 hectares on the shores of Lake Nahuel Huapi for some 2.5 million dollars. TheCumel√©n Country Club is a very exclusive place¬†situated only 3 km. from town.¬†Most of the houses here are worth in the millions and admission to the club requires going through a strict acceptance procedure by the Board of Directors.
These visitors can walk freely on the streets of¬†Villa la Angostura¬†since it¬†offers all the facilities without the harassment of photographers, fans, journalists, etc.
Another well known case was that of telecommunications tycoon¬†Ted Turner and his ex-wife actress Jane Fondawho in an interview on the General Roca newspaper Diario R√≠o Negro said “Patagonia is one of the most beautiful places in the world”, and they were sincere, they bought an estate in paradise.
