Estancias, vineyards and rural landscapes
Inland and the North image

Inland you’ll find the heart of what some consider the 'real' Uruguay with estancias sprinkled throughout the rural landscape and some beautiful, rarely-visited nature reserves. Rolling hills, forests and pastureland with livestock, and a variety of crops and vineyards epitomize Uruguay's 'gaucho country'. There are several estancias offering a range of activities (including riding), which can make a pleasant alternative to staying in a more conventional hotel.

    Estancia San Pedro de Timote

    Country hotel - Cerro Colorado
    Founded in 1854 by Pedro Jose Jackson, the original colonial main building was declared a National Historical Monument in 1997. It has lovely whitewashed walls and original Spanish tiles, and has now been converted into a family run country hotel. There is so much character, in particular the reception and library.
