I absolutely loved staying here and wish I could have stayed for longer. The hosts were extremely welcoming and willing to cater to our every need. We had a horse riding lesson that was so enjoyable and informative. This was followed by a home cooked meal and sauna. Beautiful and peaceful, highly recommended if you want a break from the...

I was lucky to come across this place traveling through Uruguay on a whim. Miguel and Monica are excellent hosts who use their years of experience to ensure guests have everything they need and are super comfortable. They catered to my (vegan) diet and riding level so that I ate well and had an awesome ride! No complaints! The sauna... More

We loved it! Monica and Miguel were the best hosts. Food was delicious, wine was cheap, and the company was great! It's definitely worth it to take the horseback riding lessons. Miguel was a very professional and knowledgeable instructor and we learned how to really handle horses, not just sit on old horses following a pre-established track. Breakfast was perfect... More

I had a great stay here! Monica and Miguel make you feel right at home in their lovely ranch. It's great for relaxing and horse riding, which they do in a very pleasant and safe way. Its good for beginners and experienced riders. They explain you everything you need to know and it's clear how much they love their horses.... More

After myself and girlfriend have been travelling for the last 3 months all over south america. This is exactly what we needed. A place where we could relax with no Internet TV or anything. Getting away from it all. They had a pool which was amazing for the heat. Great small village and amazing scenery. I would recommend this to... More

Miguel and Monica made us feel so welcome at their beautiful place in the countryside. They are friendly and helpful and have great knowledge to share about travelling. The accommodation was comfy and clean, the food was excellent, and the horse riding lesson and practice was the best we have ever experienced. Definitely worth the trip!

Spent one relaxing night here. The rooms are basic and there's no air con but they're clean and the shower was good with plenty of solar hot water. There's a small plunge pool to cool off and you can play croquet on the lawn which is fun. Food is excellent, hearty farm food. We had cheese fondue in the evening... More

We spent a lovely night at el galope. It is superb. About two hours out of Montevideo by bus, we arrived and settled into the incredibly charming accommodation they've built. Very communal, excellent food and local wine. There is also a small pool! We took a nice walk and milked some cows nearby. Good fun. We also chilled out and... More
