Land lodges its guests in a comfortable, functional and
beautiful house built with native materials in keeping with the
colorful construction systems typical of the area that have been
used since immemorial times. An inviting living room and
dining room with their lit fireplaces warmly welcome the guests.
The "casa de hacienda", or farmhouse, provides comfortable shelter and protection through suitable use of modest materials such as brick, straw, eucalyptus wood, and adobe. More than merely formal, the bedrooms recall the huts of the Andean highlands with their
straw roofs and "Estera" walls, "estera" being
the name given to a reed or cattail fabric woven by the skilled
hands of our craftsmen. Each room can lodge two persons, with the
exception of the spacious master bedroom that can accommodate a
family of four.
The dining room
...is warmed by a fireplace built of mud. The room overlooks a large courtyard surrounded with buildings used for farming purposes.
An impressive backdrop is the ever-changing
Sincholagua volcano and the magnificent cone-shaped
Cotopaxi that can be admired from the window of the upstairs game room. Two living rooms - one in the bedroom area - provide a pleasant atmosphere for reading, talking, and resting after a busy day filled with exciting activities.
hidden but not least important skeleton of the house comprises
the kitchen, store rooms, four bathrooms, a room where saddles
and riding paraphernalia are kept, and other services that
provide our guests with all the comforts that can be expected in
these Andean latitudes.
