Change of ownership, currently not being an inn
Estancia originating from the 1780's/90's turned into a charming inn, rustic yet sophisticated, offering
magnificent views over the countryside of the Maldonado hillcountry
The u-shaped building is surrounded by a picturesque and intimate garden, shaded by centuries old Ombú trees.
The estate's history can be traced back to the independence wars, when one of the "33 Orientales" placed a patrol of soldiers their, thus converting them
to the first settlers of this part of Uruguay.
Nicolás García Uriburu whose paintings are to be seen in several rooms of the Posada, acquired the estate from the direct decendents : the Egusquiza family.
He and Blanca Alvarez de Toledo restored the mansion with due respect to its ancient origin.
The arabian horses, the sheep and cattle, the lush vegetation will all enchant nature lovers.
The Posada is located just 7 km from Punta del Este / La Barra
(from La Barra Ancap petrol station take the old Camino Egusquiza towards San Carlos and look out for sign on the left after about 7,5 km)
The Posada has 6 double suites
I am farmland real estate agent, driving extensively thru Uruguay's interior.
It was a habit that started in the late 1990s to do a webpage for the odd guest estancia that I personally liked, just for fun, because at that time it was a little known tool.
Stays on guest ranches are not cheap, reflecting the time and attention dedicated by the owners, US$150-250 per person per day full board including horse riding might serve as an approximate idea.
Please contact the ranches directly and well ahead of your arrival. We are not affiliated to any of them.
