Otavalo and the northern highlands: Hacienda Pinsaqui

Hacienda Pinsaqui

The most attractive Hacienda Pinsaqui enjoys a splendid setting on the rugged flanks of Imbabura volcano, just a 15-minute drive away from Otavalo. Founded in 1790 as a textile mill, in later times it played host to a number of illustrious guests including Simón Bolívar.

Guestrooms are tastefully and cosily furnished with warm blankets, stucco walls and traditional artefacts, and each has its own fireplace. The proprietors have brought back most of the antique furniture from France and Spain.

There's a restaurant serving typically hearty Ecuadorian fare, with wonderful views of the surrounding Andean landscapes. There's also a snug bar with a crackling fire and a quirky display of equestrian regalia.

What our experts say

Rambling corridors, oversized fireplaces and rooms that vary in size, shape and standard but somehow it's the rough edges and quirks which lend Pinsaquí its charm.
