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 have been travelling for two months in Sth America and just spent the last two days with Monica and Miguel at their farm. What a perfect way to finish my adventure My room was very comfortable and so was the bed. The heating and shower were great. Monica's meals were great and Miguel did a great "Churrasco" or BBQ...

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

The Galope farm is the perfect place for a weekend gataway in the lovely Uruguayan countryside. 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

El Galope is a charming and quaint horse ranch about an hour outside of Colonia. 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

Had a great stay at El Galope. The horses are all in great condition, and are a fun ride even as an experienced rider, which really makes a difference. The location is lovely, quiet and very natural.

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
