We drove 2 1/2 hours north of Montevideo into the Florida region of Uruguay.
When it looked like we were in the middle of nowhere, we a saw sign with an arrow, and drove another 14 km on dirt roads to find the historic estancia.
As an estancia, it was founded in 1854 by Pedro Jose Jackson. But the land’s history as an agricultural venture goes back to the Jesuits and 1740. It was roughly 250,000 acres then.
It is now mostly a tourist Estancia. There are 1200 acres and the beautiful house.
The meals are good, the people friendly and the horses well fed.
We went for a mid morning ride with Beto.
Beautiful place and nice horses
Looks like a great place to get away and relax!
Thank you for the share, I’ve been to many places but yet to have this experience. Now that I know it’s there, I’ll make a point of finding and seeing it for myself.
