We spent a lovely night at el galope. It is superb. About two hours out of Montevideo by bus, we arrived and settled into the incredibly charming accommodation they've built. Very communal, excellent food and local wine. There is also a small pool! We took a nice walk and milked some cows nearby. Good fun. We also chilled out and... More

I spent 2 nights at El Galope and wish I could have stayed longer. Everything there is just perfect. The Facilities are beautiful and make you feel at home. Miguel and Monica are wonderful hosts, the horses are beautiful and riding them is a real pleasure. Hope to go back soon!

I spent two days at El Galope, and it was magnificent! From the warm welcome to the amazing food, with beautiful gardens (croquet!) and an excellent riding lesson from Miguel. I learnt so much about the area and Uruguay from Monica and Miguel who made me feel like an old friend. I feel very fortunate to have stayed at El... More

I stayed at El Galope for a couple of nights and really enjoyed the quiet environment. Facilities at the farm are very clean and all guests eat breakfast and dinner together, so there are lots of opportunities for socialising and making new friends. The farm is ideal for a getaway from the city buzz, you can go for horserides (I... More

We were here with friends for one night only. All of us wish we could have stayed longer. El Galope is a charming place in a very peaceful settlement. The two owners are a super friendly and nice couple who seem to love what they do. You will meet other(but not too many) travelers here and I liked that we... More

Had a wonderful couple of days at El Galope - really tranquil spot with plenty of good food and wine. Amazing wood fired sauna in the evenings and a pool to cool down in (which was great for us as it was very hot!). Monica and Miguel were great hosts providing lots of information and very friendly, but not at... More

We had a wonderful time. The farm is in a beautiful area, surrounded by fields and other farms. Great for spending a few days relaxing, going for walks, enjoying wine in the garden... Out highlight was horse riding with Miguel, who was a great teacher- very patient! It was lovely spending time with the horses. Monica's food was delicious, and... More

My wife and I decided to visit El Galope for a few nights to get a break from BA, so we took a short ferry ride across the river and arrived at El Galope after only a short drive with our rental car. We are so happy we made this impromptu decision, as we fell in love with horseback riding,... More

I found El Galope in Lonely Planet and I'm so glad I took the time to go there. It is a very peaceful and amazing place, where you can easily spend a few days relaxing and enjoying the beautiful countryside of Uruguay. Sauna, horse-back riding, walking, playing with the animals, enjoying the sunsets, eating delicious food, sharing moments with Monica... More
