We had a wunderful and peaceful time out from crazy BA, on the cosy farm of el galope. Nice natural surrounding, relaxing Sauna and romantic star-gazing nights. Monica and Miguel were helpful and wonderful hosts. Always up for an interesting talk and the dinners were just amazingly delicious! We highly recommend a stay on that farm.

This place is simply amazing! Monica and Miguel makes it feel like home - they run this place with perfection and passion. Everything is relaxed and natural. Unfortunately we were not able to go horseback riding because of rain and different accidents, but we wouldn't have missed this staty even without this part. The food is also great and they...

As soon as I stepped foot in El Galope I was already wishing I had more time here. The grounds are rustic and and charming. Monica and Miguel are fantastic hosts that really care about their guests and it shows. The capacity is 10 guests and since the nearest town is 6km away most people opt in for dinner at...

My stay at El Galope was pretty much perfect. Horse riding early in the morning, beautiful home cooked meals shared with the other guests, days spent lounging in a hammock and in the pool, sipping on local wine... I am SO happy I made this stop in El Galope, and would have loved to stay longer if I had time....

My stay at El Galope was a highlight of my 5 week trip travelling through South America, and I will definitely return. As soon as I arrived I felt happy and relaxed, and settled in immediately. After 10 days in Buenos Aires I was desperate to escape the city life, everything at El Galope was just perfect and exactly what...

The room was super-cosy with warm colors. We were welcomed with a fire on hearth and a lovely meal. The horseback riding was also amazing, even though most of us did not have much, if any, experience. Would recommend this place to anyone!

El Galope is a really calm and peaceful place to relax, far away from the city, you can enjoy the nature, animals and sauna. The place is very charming and the food is really food. I really recommande this place.

Miguel and Monica made us feel really at home, food was great and the whole place was just breathtaking. The dogs are really friendly and we even went horse riding on the day we left!

Our visit to El Galope was without doubt the highlight of our time in Uruguay. Set in beautiful countryside a couple of hours by bus away from Montevideo, it is a great place to get away from it all and truly relax in some fantastic natural surroundings.

El Galope is located in the beautiful countryside about 1 hour east of Colonia and near the main road (although far enough away that you don't hear it). If you want to find a place where quite relaxation is the draw, look no further. The farm is situated amid rolling green fields and pastures and Monica can give you a...
