The hosts, Miguel and Monica, are very welcoming and give you useful tips about the place and its surroundings. I particularly recommend you Monica's cuisine and her tasty cheese fondue, completly unexpected in the Uruguay countryside! And despite the bad weather, the horse riding... More

We arrived at the Valdense bus terminal and got into the taxi arranged by the owners, who drove us 10 minutes through wide open fields to the hostel. We were greeted by Monica & Miguel and their friendly dogs, shown to our rooms (2 people... More

Miguel is exceptionally friendly and knowledgable - we had some great chats about Uruguay as a country and he sent on some great... More

From the warm welcome to the heartfelt good-bye, our stay at hostel Galope felt like visiting friends on their ranch. As a hostel, Galope is great. Monica is a terrific cook, or you can cook for yourself in the well equipped kitchen. (there are even tea cups that look like grandma´s). The main room has a big table and comfy... More

I liked the especially warm and cozy atmosphere all around the house and farm, it just makes it so easy to meet friends and talk to each other for beautiful, unforgettable memories. The surroundings are picturesque, the beds comfortable and the food very good. Unfortunately, coming from Europe, cheese fondue which is a local specialty is not so impressive. The... More

The farm was nice and cozy and Monica and Miguel are great! Great food and friendly atmosphere =) We went for a ride with Miguel and got to help with the grooming of the horses before we went out. Miguel was a great teacher, and the ride was fantastic! The rooms are nice and clean. We had cheese fondue for... More
