Estancia El Charabon

Uruguayan Countryside, Uruguay

At a Glance

  • Experience the (enviable) slow pace of rural Uruguayan life at this family run, traditional estancia and working farm in Uruguay’s picturesque countryside

  • The Anglophile owners, Jorge and Graciela, have decorated the nine quaint guestrooms with interesting artefacts they have brought back to Uruguay from their travels

  • Just 20 minutes' drive from the gorgeous wild coastline and surrounded by rolling green meadows and woodlands you’ll feel completely removed from the daily hustle and bustle of urban life

  • The atmosphere is friendly and informal, you’ll be sharing stories with the owners and other guests over delicious home cooked meals (particularly tasty are the barbecues) and some of the region’s outstanding red wine

  • Whilst you might just want to relax and enjoy the tranquillity beside the pool (we don’t blame you) there are plenty of things to do around the estancia; from horse riding with local gauchos and participating in the life of the farm, to going on walks through the countryside and birdwatching opportunities
