Hacienda Pinsaqui is a colonial property that has belonged to the Freile family since 1888 and is one of Ecuador’s oldest and most historic haciendas.
Ollie is here to help give you the inside track.
The suites are all individual, comfortably furnished with original antiques and fireplaces, many with balconies overlooking the lush gardens. Heavy blankets cover the beds as nights can get chilly, and this is a place to relax and soak up the authentic atmosphere.
The property's beautiful private grounds are yours to explore, with their ponds, palms, and resident roaming llamas.
The hacienda has a restaurant serving Ecuadorian and international food, the terrace has lovely garden views and snacks can be eaten here, while in the cellars there is a wonderfully atmospheric bar, where you can relax in front of a roaring fire.
Why we love it
One of the oldest Hacienda's in Ecuador which is family run, ensuring it remains cosy and homely.
