Hunting=Rincon de los Matreros
The present facilities, were built on the remains of an old stone and wood structure that dates back to 1900.
This was done with the intent of preserving the charm and history of the place.
There are 6 suites available in a colonial style including stone, handcrafted bricks and wood, apart from the social area where you will find a large living room with a fireplace, a dining area, an indoor grill, and a wine cellar among other things. There are comfortable suites available, each with its own fireplace and dressing room. And most important of all, every room is in front of the panoramic dinning room, the huge terraces and the swimming pool. It offers spectacular views of the hills surrounding the main house.
The rusticity in the house is contrasted by certain modern touches like electric energy, digital telephony, internet connection and satellite television.
Regarding gastronomy, you will have available a menu particularly elaborated by the preparation of game meats, combined with garden vegetables and other home—made accompaniments. Pasta, bread and preserves are all handcrafted at Rincón de los Matreros. And since a good meal calls for a good wine, you will be able to select it directly at the cellar, from a wide selection of top-level wines made in Uruguay... including the special edition made it exclusively for Rincon de los Matreros.

Isla Patrulla is located beside Rincon de los Matreros, in the heart of the department of Treinta y Tres, the site is known as “Asperezas del Yerbal” because of the Yerbal river that run across the area. The place is full of hills with countless water courses and natural forests covered with a beautiful indigenous vegetation.
There are 2 different stories that explain the name:
There is a legend that says that in the village, there was a beautiful natural valley with an island of authentic trees. There lived the last couple of Indians. The man died and his wife was left all alone. They had no children.
She was wild and furious. The young people of the village wanted to visit her, to fight her, but she defended her territorium in a rather strong way. They called her Patrulla (patrol) because she defended the area on her own. So when she died, they called the place “Isla Patrulla” after her.
A second story is that the “isla” was a natural wood, where the army patrol hid themselves to surprise outlaws, who lived and robbed between the valleys the Yerbal and the Yatay.
And because there was no other village in de near distance they gave it the name “Isla Patrulla”.
