Where to stay

Below you can see some of the wonderful places we have recommended for this journey.

Hacienda Piman £££££

  • Ecuador
  • Farmstead and Ranches

Tucked into an oasis-like valley between folds of arid mountains in the northern Ecuadorian Andes, Hacienda Piman is a peaceful historic retreat property that cements its traditional status through delicious home cooking, peaceful gardens and warm hosts. A base for exploring the rich cultural and natural heritage of one of Ecuador’s most captivating regions, this pretty hacienda has been lovingly restored and is one of the few haciendas with an outdoor swimming pool embedded into its garden patio. Vintage furniture adds to the discreet charm of the thoughtfully-restored colonial mansion, which is set in twelve acres of lush gardens.
