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! Miguel and Monika are great hosts, the food is lovely, the place is just beautiful and the horses are stunning. Whether you are an expert or a beginner, if you are interested... More

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

This is a place with heart. We felt right at home and had the most relaxing days and nights there. Miguel gave a great introduction into horse riding and both me and my companion fell in love with the experience. Monica, the other owner is an exceptional hostess and I felt like we could ask her anything, and she'd have... More

Great getaway - we were well taken care of! We went on a two day trip from Buenos Aires over into Uruguay and El Galope is where we chose to relax and hang our hats. We really enjoyed the horses, property, and Monica was very welcoming to us. We walked around the neighbourhood area and found the local cheese maker... More

We enjoyed spending two nights at El Galope. The room was perfect with good beds and clean bathroom. We came for the horse rides, which we really enjoyed! Nice was that we first had a lesson on the property and the next day went for the real trip trough Colonia. The cheese fondue made the trip really complete. Unfortunately, the... More

Hi, Thank you for your comments. I would like to comment that our prices are the average prices of Uruguay and even cheaper than many places in Colonia. Of course coming from Argentina there is a big difference in price. Prices of everything in Argentina are lower than in Uruguay. All the best to you Monica and Miguel More

We stayed in this estancia for 2 nights and wished we hadn't made plans, so we could stay a little longer. Monica and Miguel are great hosts and really made us feel like home in their lovely estancia. I am not a animal-person (my girlfriend is!), but I really loved it over here. Their dogs (2pac in particular, named after... More
