Hacienda San Agustin de Callo, Lasso 

Tel: 593 3 2719 160
view web site ›'s insider take:

Occupying the site of a mid-15th-century Inca palace-fortress, parts of which are still being restored, San Agustin de Callo is today one of Ecuador's most luxurious haciendas. Owner Mignon Plaza (granddaughter of former president general Leonidas Plaza Gutierrez) lives on the property, and she's made the common areas richly comfortable. The living rooms are packed with rare manuscripts and monographs, antiques, plush couches, and photos of the hacienda's many renovations (in the 16th century, the property briefly housed an Augustine convent). The lodgings include 11 rooms spread through three buildings; the most atmospheric are those in the Inca House, which have cast-iron chandeliers, beamed ceilings, stone floors, claw-foot bathtubs, and views over the green Andean plains. Rooms in the newer Callo House and Cotopaxi House are also luxurious, with fireplaces and Jacuzzi tubs, but with a more modern aesthetic. At dusk, you can wander outside to watch the resident llamas grazing in the common courtyard, then repair to the volcanic-stone dining room for the nightly feast, presided over by a rotating cast of visiting chefs from around the world.
