About us  

The "Cortijo La Herradura" is a family business run by Roberto, Margo, Rebeca, and Gabriela. The idea came from our passion for horses and the positive feedback from students, after taking them horseback riding at another facility. What we want to share with you is the tranquility that is experienced in the countryside, sharing moments with the animals we have, leaving the daily routine aside, enjoying nature accompanied by the beautiful environment. 

The private ground consisting of 17 hectares, will give you the opportunity to appreciate the beautiful landscape that the countryside of Uruguay has to offer. You can walk around the place accompanied by our dogs and get to know all our horses as well. They are magnificent creatures of huge, overbearing stature but friendly enough to allow you to approach them. You can rest at a nearby lake enjoying the fabulous views, or relax with a book under a tree in our garden or in our small indigenous forest, whilst listening to the sound of birds chirping 

The house itself has 2 floors. The first floor has 2 bedrooms (single or double), sharing a bathroom equipped with a shower, washbasin, and toilet. From the rooms, you will directly walk into the garden and into the shared large space with an open and fully equipped kitchen with all the necessary utilities. There is also a very comfortable dining and relax area, another toilet, a billiard table and plenty of books. There is a washer and dryer that can be used for a small fee.

On the second floor is the family house with 1 bedroom (single or double) for guests, sharing a bathroom equipped with a shower, washbasin, and toilet. There is a living room with an open kitchen and a large balcony, offering you a great view overlooking the property and its surroundings. A perfect place to enjoy the amazing sunset, the starry sky, or a thunderstorm.

For those looking for more privacy, there is a bungalow with a place for 2 or 3 students.

Breakfast is included, lunch, diner, and afternoon teas are also worth trying, all homemade with vegetables from our organic garden! 

Relax, breathe fresh air, and practice your Spanish, enjoying the beautiful natural environment of Uruguay with us at “Cortijo La Herradura”.
