Caballo CampanaCuenca, Ecuador
This charming hacienda is located about 15 minutes’ drive from Cuenca and is a horse-lovers’ paradise. The extensive stables house around 65 horses, and the owners host regular riding and equestrian events (including show jumping). Riding lessons are run daily for both the local community as well as hotel guests and riding is offered for beginners as well as experienced riders.
Built in a country ranch style, the 19 rooms, cabinas and suites are comfortable, though not luxurious, but we enjoyed the natural charm of the property, the gardens and the quiet country location. Ten new luxury rooms will be available by mid-2014.
Complimentary transport is available for guests to explore the historic city of Cuenca and to a wonderful neighbouring hot spring and spa complex.
