    Our place is a cultural and tourist resort 7 Km from La Paloma (Rocha). The main mission here is to take care of a piece of Uruguay where: Local nature can thrive and prosper;The organic vegetable garden is effective and efficient; Fun and learning are synonyms.

    Here it is possible to: Relax and just do nothing, but it will be hard not to observe native birds that pass through here (we have observed already 183 different species!), appreciate the various native plants that our garden offers, taste fruits, enjoy the swimming pool, play soccer on the field, make a barbecue and spend memorable moments with the other guests and the crew.

    Accommodation, with:

    Cozy rooms that can comfortably accommodate a couple, a family of 4-5 members or groups up to 10 people.

    Camping emplacements in the shade of a eucalyptus wood with barbecues, toilets and showers with hot water to enjoy the holidays in comfort
