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! It really is a must stop. Prices are really reasonable considering what you get and the food there is amazing... We could not have had...

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. Monica and Miguel are extremely friendly, charming and hospitable hosts - nothing was...

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...

Miguel and Monica (and Rocco, Kira, Tupac 🐶🐻🐶) were awesome hosts! We had an incredible stay at El Galope, and so much fun adventuring around the countryside. We are from NYC, but are living in Buenos Aires for 6 months and decided to take a last minute adventure to Uruguay for the long weekend. Taking the ferry was super easy,...

I had a great time at El Galope. Miguel and Monica were extremely hospitable and friendly. It felt like I was staying at a family friends place (which happened to be an amazing farm in the beautiful country side). I don't think I've slept so well in weeks, including when I'm at home. I had 3 home cooked meals, sauna,...

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...
