It was through destiny that this old and historical hacienda came into my hands 14 years ago. I have put my heart and soul into her reconstruction, a labour of love which took many years. The hacienda is a paradise located in the magnificent setting of the Ecuadorian Andes, a place where you can disconnect from reality and rediscover the authentic pleasures of life. From the break of dawn, the impressive view of the local snow-capped peaks (Corazón, Rumiñahui, Cotopaxi and Ilinizas) invites you to enjoy your natural surroundings in their purest form through activities such as riding on the hacienda’s wonderful Andalucian horses, mountain biking and hiking through the local native forests and trails where a variety of orchids can be spotted. It is my privilege to be able to offer gourmet food and good wine, I personally attend my guests to ensure that their stay at Umbria is an unforgettable experience, a well earned treat that all deserve. I hope to be able to share these pleasures with you.
“Rediscover yourself, wake up with hummingbirds, enjoy the countryside whilst the cows are milked and fruits are picked before being converted into delicacies, horse ride through the native forests scattered with orchids, fill your soul with the natural surroundings and revitalize your spirit – all great reazons to visit Umbria.”
Please note: Due to the exclusive nature of the hotel, only guests with confirmed reservations are received at Hacienda Umbria.
