El Galope is definitely worth a visit! Monica and Miguel are the best hosts and the horses are great. There are never to many people, so you easily make friends with everyone. The food is really good and the rooms are cosy. The farm is surrounded by beautiful nature, that is perfect for horse riding. It was an amazing experience...

The farm was nice and cozy and Monica and Miguel are great! Great food and friendly atmosphere =) We went for a ride with Miguel and got to help with the grooming of the horses before we went out.

Thank you for your review. You could try coming in winter. It is not like in Sweden here. Days are sunny and the nights are cold but with very clear stary nights, perfect to enjoy after the sauna or for staying inside chatting with guests or just reading a book. The fireplace is burning all day long!! I love winter!

El Galope is a beautiful, peaceful farm. Monica and Miguel are very friendly, and both speak really good English. The horses are gorgeous. It is obvious how much they are loved, and they are so well looked after. They only have a small number of horses, which is fabulous, as you are never just number 10 horse, in a row...

I only had time to stay one night at El Galope, but I had a great time. Really nice food, beautiful place and amazing horses. I am a vegetarian and it was no problem. I am a experienced rider and I was very happy to have a nice ride on nice horses (which is sometimes hard to find). Urko is...

Beautiful place, very nice owners. The place is an oasis and a perfect place to spend few, or more, days. Owners make delicious food and give very good tips for Uruguay travels. Horses and dogs are very well taken care of and Miguel, the owner, seems to be a real gaucho. Would stay again definitely! And a very good Finnish...

We loved staying at El Galope. It's a quaint little house on land with 3 gorgeous dogs and lots of beautiful horses. We spent our time reading under the tree, drinking wine and eating cheese, and we visited the milking station down the road and got to play with the baby calves! Such a relaxing place and great to have...

Miguel and Monica are awesome people that have traveled a lot and have lived incredible stories to share. Their estancia is very well organised with many a very calm environment.

Miguel and Monica run the El Galope horse farm and hostel-estancia in sw Uruguay, between Montervideo and Colonia and somewhat closer to the latter. For travelers ok with the hostel level of comfort, it's a great bargain. Miguel leads horse rides through the fields and lanes early in the morning. Bicycles are--at this time--not available but they have a map...
