The Spaniards arrived in the area of Quito in 1534, and the Colonial rule lasted until 1822. During that time many large estates -or Haciendas- were established in the Andean region, privileged as it is by a year-round spring-like weather and by the fertility of its soil. Colonial-style manor houses were built in some of those estates, and simpler, country-style, but equally as beautiful houses were built in other ones.

Some of those estates are no longer large, but many of the houses remain. And in a few cases the properties now welcome guests who cannot only enjoy the beauty and the atmosphere of those Haciendas, but also be invited (by the Haciendas' owners) to a direct immersion into typical Ecuadorian lifestyle.
