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

If you like nature and have a nice short break from the hassle of montevideo, el galope is a great place. We went with my finnish boyfriend for the sauna, and we stayed there one night. We tried the short horse ridding lesson where we learn how to ride a horse, then we had a great asado made by Miguel... More

We had such a wonderful time with Miguel and Monika. The room we stayed in was lovely, their property was beautiful, and the horse-back riding was so much fun. We highly recommend staying here for at least one night when in Uruguay. Thanks!

I stayed for several days and really enjoyed it! Miguel and Monika are wonderful hosts. The house and the whole estate is in the countryside, next small town a few km away. The rooms are very nice, clean and even the dorms just have 2 beds. A beautiful garden with a nice view. Perfect to observe the moon rise and... More

We loved the two days we spend at the farm. The reason we choose for this farm that we always wanted to learn horseriding What else is better to do that on a estancia. Miguel was a perfect teacher and gaves you enough confidence to ride the next day on the countryside. The horses are very well trained but they... More
