Miguel and Monica are great hosts. I would highly recommend their Posada if you are looking to relax, disconnect (in every sense of the word), ride horses and enjoy nature. It was pretty cold while i was there and would recommend going in the spring/summer. Highlights: cozy kitchen and decore, chilling by the fire, horses, wood burning sauna!

We had a wonderful time relaxing on the farm and taking a sunrise riding lesson. We also loved meeting fellow travelers and enjoying a family style dinner prepared on a real authentic Argentinian grill. Afterwards we all enjoyed wine & went stargazing to see which stars you can't see from North America. Truely wonderful experience and great owners.

We enjoyed meeting Miguel and Monica and really appreciated being in a "normal" rural town rather than a touristy area. Monica offered us sandwiches and coffee upon arrival, which was perfect because we had missed lunch, and the connections to and from the Colonia Valdense bus stop went smoothly with their help. We were frustrated by the lack of options... More

An interesting place run by interesting people. They offer meals and wine, as well as horse riding and the experience of going round a farm. Take a walk around and you get a feel for what life is like in rural Uruguay.

We are two friends who lived in Buenos Aires for a month, learning spanish and just to experience life in another country. After a couple of weeks in the hectic city, we decided to relax and see more of the region. El galope offered an affordable get-a-way, and a ste-by-step guide to get there! Easy. We took the ferry to... More

I have been recommending this place to everyone. It has been the best part of my trip so far, and I loved it so much I even brought my parents back when they came to visit me in Buenos Aires. Monica and Miguel are so friendly and inviting. They take no more than 10 guests at a time so you... More

Outstanding. A quiet, super friendly place, out of the city, half an hour from Colonia’s deck, deep into the open fields of Uruguay. Miguel and Monica were more than kind and helpful to my girlfriend and me. Sauna and Pool makes weather perfect. Monica’s meals are really unique. Best Fondue I ever had, and very good wine too. I would... More

I've been in south america for 4 months now, and this is my favourite place I have stayed. It really is like taking a holiday from your holiday!

I was recommended this place by the Hotel where I was staying at in Montevideo. I looked it up on line and it seemed to have better prices than the other estancia-tourism areas, with less gimmicks. Basically, El Galope is mostly a horse ranch. They do have a little garden with chickens too. The place is wonderful and it is... More
