4 Volcanoes Villa is a stylish, one-of-a kind, custom-built home with amazing 5,000 sq ft of living space within two acres of flower gardens with swings, a little soccer field and a two story tree house. The house is perfect for families, romantic luxury breaks and retreats. The setting and scenery of the villa are spectacular, as it is sitting on six acres of private land, and in a green valley of the dramatic Andes mountains, right at beautiful lake San Pablo, with 5min walking distance to the village.
Relax in the unique, open concept home with stylish (yet child friendly) interior design. Enjoy your private super size outdoor hot tub or one of the two ample living rooms with comfy couch and spectacular views over the valley. The adobe, wood and stone build Villa is an ideal getaway for families with children, gatherings, outdoor enthusiasts, or those who are looking for a quiet place to write, paint or learn Spanish. The property is an ecological place with a bio-dynamic garden and a bee sanctuary. We use only organic cleaning supplies and natural materials.
The area is a must see: Vivid indigenous culture, 350 days of sun, amazing nature for outdoor activities, authentic rural villages for crafts/ antique shopping, just 90min from Quito airport. Your home away from home is nestled into corn fields and surrounded by a professionally landscaped garden, with lots of room for your children. There are amazing views from every corner of the house.
The huge living room with floor to ceiling windows and views to the lake has a super sized sofa, a standing free, tree shaped fireplace, and a dining area for up to 12. Furthermore the Villa has a fully equipped kitchen with direct access to the terrace and its traditional wood burning bread and pizza oven.
We will be happy to assist during your stay – just as much as you like, but we will always respect your privacy. Your house is standing free in a two acre garden with a big outdoor playground and a BBQ area. Furthermore and attached at the back of the garden, we have 4 acres pasture land, where we run a small Equine Therapy Program with 7 horses, and the bee sanctuary.

Car: Not Necessary
We named the house 4 Volcanoes Villa, due to its unique setting. Located at 9,000ft in the northern Andes of Ecuador and within a 5 minute walk from the main plaza of the rural village of San Pablo del Lago, we are surrounded by 4 majestic peaks of (extinct) volcanoes: Imbabura, Cusin, snow-capped Cotacachi and the Mojanda rim.
It is just a 1,5 hour drive from Quito international airport, and yet another world. Indigenous walk their cows and sheep to the grazing field every morning. The land is worked the old fashioned way and fresh mountain air clears your senses.
We have renowned hotels with an excellent restaurant offer within a 10 minute drive and some of Ecuador´s major tourist attractions such as famous Otavalo market or Cuicocha crater lagoon are just 30 minutes away.
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We are a family from Germany and live permanently in Ecuador since 2002. With our own Lodge and the Equine therapy facility next door we live our dream close to nature, with cultural experiences and of course sunshine all year round! Our three boys are born in this wonderful country and homeschooled - we truly love our way of life here. As former bussiness consultants and managers of the award winning Hacienda Zuleta Hotel, we know the hospitality industry quite well - take advantage of our contacts and insights! We also spend our time teaching at the university, coaching alternative schools, learning about shamanism, and volunteering at a local orphanage. We are happy to share, and looking forward to meeting you!
Why the Owner Chose Distrito Metropolitano de Quito, Ecuador:
San Pablo is an authentic village in a quiet rural setting, only 50 miles from the capital Quito and with endless activities within 1 hour driving around the house. The climate is perfect - Sunshine on 350 days of the year!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The area is perfect for outdoor activities, shopping, there are restaurants close by and the cultural experience offered is amazing. A perfect day: get up with the first rays of sun and hike up the Imbabura volcano. Come back, have a late breakfast on the terrace. Watch the horses in training. Later a trip to Otavalo, some crafts shopping, visit a cultural event or just watch the people at the plaza. Grab some fruit at the market and head for early dinner towards the lake, for a beautiful dining experience with sunset view at the shore. When home, the hot tub is boiling and you can count the stars of both hemispheres. Tomorrow you can do a trail ride and have tea time at a colonial hacienda. And change your flights to stay a little longer!
