El Galope Horse Farm

Could not be haqppier with our choice of property to visit Uruguay. The location (nearly an hour away from the town) was perfect for us - we were happy to have a break from the city. The owners are wonderful people who were happy to answer our questions and make us feel very at home.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I came across El Galope online, completely by mistake and stayed here for 2 nights. For anyone reading this I have to let you know that this place is amazing. If you´re an expat living in Buenos Aires and want to escape from the chaos of the city, you should definitely check this place out.

The tranquility and peace that you feel here is really something else. You´re completely surrounded by nature and its extremely peaceful, at the estancia you´ll even see a few sheep, horses, and cows. I also have to say that the hosts Monica and Miguel are extremely nice. If I´m not mistaken they both speak English, Spanish, German... and I believe French as well (I´m not too sure on that last one).

I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for something different during their visit to the Colonia area.
