Situated in Paysandú at the northwest of Uruguay is a traditional, active estancia dating from 1870. Its old and charming colonial house combines tradition and the comfort of the best boutique farm hotels.
The traditional design has double inverted patios and the well reminds us of Modesta Bercianos, the first owner of the estancia.
Everything in Santa Modesta has character, and each room is unique. It is a perfect place for sharing quality time with friends, family or a romantic getaway.
Upon arrival, our staff will receive you warmly. They enjoy pampering guests during their stay.
There are 7 bedrooms and 5 modern bathrooms, ( 3 suites). Rain water is purified and pumped into the house.
Two living rooms, one big dining room and plenty of special places to relax plus a wonderful garden, makes it different and special. Wifi is available through out the house and patios.
In our kitchen, we specialize in good quality home made food combining traditional Uruguayan ingredients with gourmet cooking…and our asados!!
The bar has a wide range of drinks, and the wines come from a careful selection of Uruguayan, Chilean and Argentinian vineyards.
10 minutes away from the Estancia, Thermal Resort Almirón has the only salted water thermal pools ( 34º to 42ºcentigrades) of the southern hemisphere. This gives us access to spa services that can be coordinated very easily.
The farm work is visible from the house and gardens. Cattle, horses, sheep are seen while Fabio and his team deftly manage them in the traditional way on horseback.
Many activities can be shared, but if you choose to relax, the extense view of Uruguayan countryside plus wonderful sunsets quickly sets the ambience.
Good roads and even an airplane landing strip (Pista Algorta), make Santa Modesta an accessible and different experience, and a very difficult one to forget!
