We loved our stay at El Galope. Miguel and Monica are perfect hosts. The horseride was excellent and was able to adapt for riders with different levels of experience. The food was wonderful and the booking process was straightforward. Fully recommend!

Having started my travels in Buenos Aires, El Galope came as a tranquil and beautiful relief. It's conveniently located between Colonia del Sacramento and Montevideo and a nice place to spend a few days in the Uruguayan countryside. Miguel and Monica have spent a lot of time abroad (living and traveling) so they know what a traveller wants and deliver... More

Great food. Really clean and nice rooms. Willing to make accommodations for dietary needs. All the food we ate was local. Cheese, milk, and honey from the neighbors. Insanely beautiful. Such a great value!!

Liked: Everything!!!! Mónica and Miguel are incredible hosts! The Estancia itself is beautiful, the accommodation, the kitchen, the sitting room are all beautifully built and decorated, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The food is delicious, all local produce and the wine was very tasty too! The horse riding was a great experience and the sauna in the evening is a... More

We spent two great nights here in early June and loved it. Even though the weather was bad the whole time and we were unable to do any horse riding the farm was just a relaxing place to take break and read a book. The food was incredible, fondue the first night and roast lamb the second, and I really... More

I highly recommend you stay here to get a "real" experience in Uruguay. It is an opportunity to get out of the city and meet the host and guest in a cozy environment. If you like horses or a sauna you cannot pass this up. The horses are extremely well cared for and well trained. If you are experienced you... More

We went to Galope to recharge from Buenos Aires - a welcome change of pace and scenery. Miguel and Monica were gracious hosts, and simply, very cool people. We were taking walks to town along scenic country roads, photographing the countryside, warming up by an open fire in the lodge, and eating delicious food prepared by Monica. The communal meals...

El Galope is a small estancia north of Colonia. By the end of our stay, we felt like we were leaving old friends. The horses are wonderful and the rides are tailored to riders' comfort and skill levels. We enjoyed the communal meals with other guests and walked into town a couple of times to get a feel for the... More
