El Galope is a small estancia north of Colonia. By the end of our stay, we felt like we were leaving old friends. The horses are wonderful and the rides are tailored to riders' comfort and skill levels. We enjoyed the communal meals with other guests and walked into town a couple of times to get a feel for the...

The Galope farm is the perfect place for a weekend gataway in the lovely Uruguayan countryside. The hosts, Miguel and Monica, are very welcoming and give you useful tips about the place and its surroundings. I particularly recommend you Monica's cuisine and her tasty cheese fondue, completly unexpected in the Uruguay countryside! And despite the bad weather, the horse riding...

El Galope is a charming and quaint horse ranch about an hour outside of Colonia. We arrived at the Valdense bus terminal and got into the taxi arranged by the owners, who drove us 10 minutes through wide open fields to the hostel. We were greeted by Monica & Miguel and their friendly dogs, shown to our rooms (2 people...

I liked the especially warm and cozy atmosphere all around the house and farm, it just makes it so easy to meet friends and talk to each other for beautiful, unforgettable memories. The surroundings are picturesque, the beds comfortable and the food very good. Unfortunately, coming from Europe, cheese fondue which is a local specialty is not so impressive. The...
