Miguel looked after us 3 horse riding beginners very well - his patience and tuition was much appreciated along with Monica’s home cooking.

Just perfect! A wonderful getaway, hosted by the fantastic Monika and Miguel. Everything from the location to the food, the wine and the horse riding were exceptional. We wish we could have stayed forever.

8/10 Very good

Good, but...
A nice place to stay for a couple of nights and would recommend, but would note a few issues: - The owners and a mistake on hotels.com meaning we got a cheaper rate. There was some pressure from them on us to pay more than we had booked for. - Prices for the horse riding had increased by $20pp in the 2 months between making the booking and our stay. - Bed linen was almost threadbare in places. - They have two large dogs (to be expected on a property like this), but one is especially lively and jumpy which may make some people uncomfortable and /or disrupt your relaxation in the pretty and otherwise quiet grounds.

Peaceful stay with wonderful hosts
Miguel and Monica are inviting hosts who make you feel comfortable at their home right away. We didn’t horseback ride, but the local area is nice to walk around and just enjoy nature. Home cooked dinners by Monica were very tasty, and Miguel gave great local recommendations for the rest of our Uruguay trip.
