Hacienda Zuleta, Andes
|100150, Comuna Zuleta, Andes, ECUADOR.|
Description: Hacienda ZuletaLocated in the Andean highlands of Ecuador, Hacienda Zuleta is set on a colonial working farm, originally built around 1691 on the foundations of a much older structure. After a careful renovation, Hacienda Zuleta was opened as a charming small hotel, and offers boutique-style accommodation, delicious home cooked food and a fabulous range of activities in an idyllic rural setting.
A wonderful retreat in the heart of nature, surrounded by 2000 hectares of lush pasture and woodland, Zuleta is a paradise for outdoor activities, offering hiking, trekking, horse-riding, mountain biking and bird watching, among many other options. As a fully functioning hacienda, Zuleta produces a range of dairy products, and guests can observe the cheese making process from start to finish, or visit the cheese museum. Zuleta also runs the Andean Condor Huasi Project, a rehabilitation and preservation centre for these spectacular birds just five kilometres from the hacienda.
Cuisine at Zuleta is almost entirely based on the fresh produce from the lands of the hacienda, from fresh organic fruit and vegetables, wheat from the fields, and fresh dairy products, to rainbow trout from the river. Guests will enjoy dishes created from recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation, creating a unique, authentic Equadorian dining experience.
