El Charabon is a delight. The Property itself is wonderful. First, because it is authentic—a working ranch with 1000 head of cattle and hundreds of sheep— all part of the food chain and economy of Uruguay. Second, It also happens to be beautiful—rolling hills with eucalyptus trees, native grasses, shrubs, as far as the eye can see scattered with animals...

Even before we arrived in Uruguay the owner of the Estancia was so helpful in responding to all my questions and in a very timely manner. When we finally arrived we were so warmly greeted by the staff. We had a little trouble finding the exact road to get to the Estancia but locals at a restaurant/gas station were familiar...

El Charabon is an estancia with a small number of very nice rooms rather than a hotel with many rooms. Our hosts, Jorge and Graciela, were gracious, helpful, and friendly. Jorge gave us a personal and extensive tour of their large ranch, and we watched the care of his livestock. We are not "horse people," so we did not go...

During a recent (terrific) trip to Uruguay we stayed in several places. All of which were nice, but El Charabon was the absolute best. Within minutes of arriving, I felt totally at home. The rooms were luxurious, the bath was totally up to date and slick, and the care provided by the staff was astounding. Flowers in the rooms, turn...

El Charabon exceeded my expectations in every way! I stayed for 3 nights in May 2014 and was the only guest. I was welcomed so warmly and genuinely by Jorge and Graciela, I could see that this place was not a typical tourist cowboy ranch. The land is gorgeous and the animals are very well cared for. I loved waking...

Staying at El Carabon was a great treat for us. We hugely appreciated the kindness and consideration extended to us by everyone running the estancia. They have thought of everything. We went there to ride, so were surprised by the luxurious bedrooms and lovely pool. The horses were super and we had great fun cantering through the hills, looking for...

It's hard to find the words to express how wonderful this place is ! We stayed 3 nights in January 2014 and we have to say it was one of the best travel experiences of our lives !! An authentic "cattle ranch" thats for sure, this is the "real deal" for anyone looking for that full South American "Gaucho experience"...

We stayed here as part of a weeks riding holiday. El Charabon is a working cattle and sheep farm, set in glorious surroundings with big skies and rolling hills. There is a lovely swimming pool, beautiful and gardens to relax in. The horses were in excellent condition with good quality tack and the riding, was great. This estancia was the...

This should be a 5-star property! Beautiful surroundings, wonderful accommodations, great service. All of that is true. And our room was, truly, a 2-room suit. But maintenance issues are starting to crop up. Our shower leaked onto the bathroom floor. The swimming pool was both cold and full of ducks (really!). I like ducks (I live in Oregon), but don't...

“All good - only birds and horses making noise and the wind in the trees.”
  • We had two rooms and a bathroom, this was the bedroom with a great view to the rolling hills.
  • Just outside our room looking into the courtyard

“Ask for one of the "detached rooms", though the "in house rooms" looked good as we could see them. If you like horses, but don't ride, ask for a carriage ride. Even us riders loved it!”
