Overview
More
We live in the beautiful Sierras of Rocha, easily accessible and close to the beach, yet well off the beaten path. Our passion are horses, so mostly we offer stays based on long horse back rides for experienced riders, or gentle introductions to the world of horses for beginners. However, we also offer our amenities to anyone who just enjoys being off the tourist paths for a few days, who likes to enjoy peace and quiet and beautiful nature and hearty vegetarian cuisine. We are part of an ecological, organic, artistic comunity,so there is wild honey, organic milk and cheese, and plenty of live music.

Lucie's place is an ideal location for learning a very gentle, respectful form of horsemanship. Added to that, the local environment is very, very beautiful and full of all sorts of birds and animals, so if you are a nature lover this is an ideal...More

I was really amazed by how beautiful their horses are and for the breathtaking landscape and sunset. This was the best activity of my trip to Uruguay and I loved the food and their organic garden too.

Absolutely fantastic experience. Put Caballos De Luz on your itinerary in Uruguay. The "eco friendly" cabins are very romantic by candle light. Never felt more relaxed, surrounded by beautiful nature, wildflowers, a refreshing river stream and the wonderful (almost surreal) songs of the frogs at...More
