About
We live in the beautiful Sierras of Rocha, easily accessible and close to the beach, yet well off the beaten path. Our passion are horses, so mostly we offer stays based on long horse back rides for experienced riders, or gentle introductions to the world of horses for beginners. However, we also offer our amenities to anyone who just enjoys being off the tourist paths for a few days, who likes to enjoy peace and quiet and beautiful nature and hearty vegetarian cuisine. We are part of an ecological, organic, artistic comunity,so there is wild honey, organic milk and cheese, and plenty of live music.

Simply the best!!!
Dec 2020 • Couples
Had such a fantastic day at Caballos de Luz with the with awesome and intrepid Lucie! Our afternoon started with some outdoor wild swimming in their glorious backyard river (with a really fun rope swim and natural jacuzzi), then we had a very professional briefing on horseriding from Lucie, followed by a stunning 2 hour horse ride across beautiful terrain, which was then topped off with a stunning and delicious dinner as sunset dropped across the valley. Lucie made the day a total success, and her horses are really well trained and easy to ride! Can't recommend this enough!

Be sure you want a basic adventure to stay here

Part of a commune (not a ranch stay, which we expected) and very expensive for what it is for sure. Food is great and lovely horse ride but you pay for it! We stayed the night of a full moon festival and the owner offered us earplugs and then left for the night as too loud! Very basic more back packing than Glam-ping for sure.

Best way to see Sierras de Rocha!!!
Mar 2020
Highly recommend giving this a try. The landscape is amazing and you couldn't really walk through some of it without a horse. Lucie is a great guide and makes you feel so comfortable. Her garden is a dream and the lunch was outstanding. Everything about this place is quite magical and I am so glad we came for a visit.

Truly a dream of a day. We had a fabulous ride with Lucie. The horses were well behaved and well trained. The landscape is breathtaking. The picnic lunch was delicious and relaxing. I recommend this wonderful experience highly and we can’t wait to return.

A small paradise outside of Rocha
Sep 2019 • Friends
We did a two hours horseback riding tour with Lucie and had dinner afterwards. The fact that the horses are treated well is very important to us. So, we are happy we found Caballos de Luz. Lucie is a very friendly, open minded, and respectful person who cares a lot about her environment and the appropriate interaction with her animals. She adjusted to the needs of all group members during the tour and made it a very enjoyable time. The landscape was amazing and the horses were very trustful and well trained. Also, the vegetarian dinner was great and we had a nice time watching the sunset while eating. We would definitely recommend Caballos de Luz and are hoping to come back for an extended stay. Thank you so much Lucie! We wish you all the best.

Beautiful location and cordial host
Jun 2019 • Family
Our short stay here was very pleasant. We arrived at night, and the stars were incredibly vivid. Slept in a clean, comfortable yurt and woke up with the Sierras de Rocha off the back porch. .

The food is very good, but it is all vegetarian. I enjoyed it, but the food was a minus from the kids' perspective.

Trail ride was a lot of fun, although guide could have been a bit less uptight.

Certainly worth a visit if you're in the area.

The owner Lucie created an amazing place near Rocha where I ended up staying longer than planned simply because it was so wonderful. From cuddling with a fowl, riding out into nature, helping to move the neighbor's cattle to enjoying the delicious food Lucie, Till or Livi made fresh every day (Lucie makes the best salad dressing you will ever taste!) - the time I spent here I will cherish for a long time and hope to be back one day. Thank you!

What an incredible find! Definitely a must do In Uruguay. Lucie is so welcoming, the property is amazing and the food is fabulous. Our ride lead by Bon was one we won’t forget. Thank you for such an incredible experience.

A very enjoyable and serene stay with great horse-riding, great hosts and great vegetarian food
Aug 2018 • Solo
I stayed three nights and this was certainly the calmest and most serene part of my visit to Uruguay. It was incredibly quiet and the Sierras were gorgeous. My room was very comfortable. Cell phone connection is a little difficult but that probably is a good thing for me. The horse riding was wonderful, the trails interesting and the information provided by Lucie was great. The sights were lovely. Everyone was very helpful and really went beyond beyond what I'd expected. They always tried to make me comfortable and answer any questions I had.
