Punta del Este beaches and coastline: Estancia Guardia del Monte

Visit Us

Estancia Guardia del Monte

Estancia Guardia del Monte  is a gem of a working ranch set in the deeply rural hinterland of Uruguay’s Atlantic coast, within easy reach of bird-saturated wetlands, meadows where beef cattle and criollo horses graze,  and the rolling sand dunes which define the shore.  

Utterly unspoilt, the historic ranch (it dates back to the early 19th century) has a country-cottage style historic house where open fires and beams create a rustic, welcoming atmosphere. The handful of guest rooms are simple but quaint,  featuring local wood and stone: each has its own objet d’art,   including items washed up on the shore from shipwrecks.

There is a range of activities you can take part in during the day including horse-rides, canoe trips,  guided  walks and bird watching. Back at the ranch you can enjoy wholesome  country cooking and spend the evening sitting nursing a drink beside a roaring log fire. The property welcomes families and groups of friends as well as individuals and day visitors.
