Stayed here only for one night, as there was no more vacancy for longer. All i can say is positive. The very friendly owner Alicia, corresponding reliably via e-mail, showing me around in the estancia. The estancia itself, wonderful situated with several kilometers away from any neighbor. An advantage surely is the little number of rooms, only five. Rooms with...

We had an exciting walk through the famous and unusual "Bosque del Ombres” this morning. Our destination was bird platform which has 2 levels, the top on as high as the tree tops , so one could look at the birds flying over the narrow forest, which has a swamp on one side and a lake on the other side....

Guardia del Monte is truly a little piece of paradise. Sitting atop the hill it's built on looking down on the lake with the humming birds humming around you, it really feels like there's no where better on earth. The horse riding (which was fine for a total beginner like me) takes you out to see some amazing bird life...

A real taste of the profound beauty of the Uruguayan countryside and the gaucho way of life. Lovely dueña Alicia knows the history of the region, natural and otherwise, very well. The nearby lagoon's birdlife is amazing, and humming birds dart in and out of flowers by the terrace as you're having your second cup of coffee for the day....

We stayed there for one night only but loved the place. Alicia is a charming host who will willingly tell you about the story of the estancia and guide you through the quite unique ombu forest in Uruguay. She also offers water and delicious tea after the walks. We went horse riding aroun the beautiful property. We were not experienced...

It is hard to find enough superlatives to describe this place. I have wanted to go to Uruguay for a long time, looking for the beautiful countryside, the people, the birds, and overall - the horses!! Guardia del Monte delivered in every respect, and then some. It was one of those very memorable instances when reality exceeds expectations. The property...

The estancia is located 10 km down an unpaved road off Ruta #9, on the border of the Castillos Lagoon. On arrival, we were served tea on the brick patio that overlooked the wetlands below in the distance. This property has had a significant historical importance since the 18th century and has been in the owner's family dating back to...
