Itati Lodge is located a 2 h drive from Uruguays Salto in the wide pampas of the Artiga Department. You immediately wind down from any city hectic when you sit down on the porch drowning the dust of the country roads with a chilled beer and taking in the sun going down at the horizon.
Itati Lodge gives you the feeling of living pure and simple with Mother Nature without giving up on anything comfortable.
What a luxury to have a room service in the middle of nowhere: every evening there is a fire lit in the fire place in your bathroom besides of preparing your bed for the night. All rooms are decorated with the finest sense of unpretentious style.
At day time you can choose between a wide range of activities: exploring the country side on horseback, crossing rivers and discovering secret clementine yards or mineral fields or going for a hunt with excellent trained dogs and guides.
In the evenings everybody gathers around the big dinner table in the "glassbox " - the main living room and kitchen of Itati Lodge and enjoying a great wine, the prey of the day and the stories.
For us it was the perfect family vacation and we plan to be back next year.
