Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Otavalo - 4 Volcanoes Villa
7,000 sqft, 3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, sleeps 8, extensive garden, 2h north of Quito
4Volcanoes Villa is a stylish, one-of-a kind, custom-built home with amazing 7,000 sqft 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: Sitting on six acres private land and in a green valley of the dramatic Andes mountains, right at beautiful lake San Pablo, this is the only private villa in South America recommended by Conde Nast Johansens luxury guidebook.
Relax in the unique, open concept home with stylish (yet child friendly) interior design. Enjoy your private super size outdoor hot tub or the ample living room with comfy couch and spectacular view over the valley. The adobe 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 biodynamic plant and 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. 90min to Quito airport. Your home away from home is nestled into corn fields and surrounded by a professionally landscaped garden, with walkable labyrinth and lots of room for your children. There are amazing views from every corner of the house.
The Master Bedroom has windows to three sides, King size bed, fireplace, desk, sitting area, direct access to the outdoor hot tub in the patio, rainfall-shower AND family size bathtub, as has the second bedroom on the main floor with Queen size bed, desk and sitting area. Across the hall from the master bedroom is the library/TV-room, which can be turned into an extra studio with two sofa beds for children. The lower level of the villa has another cozy bedroom with desk and sitting area, its private bathroom with shower, the laundry room and a games room with lots of toys for children of all ages.
There is staff available at extra cost for cleaning, cooking or child care, but we will always respect your privacy. We – the german owners family – live in our own house next to the gate and will be happy to assist during your stay – just as much as you like. Your house is standing free in a two acre landscaped perennial garden with a big outdoor playground, labyrinth, organic horticulture, BBQ area, and a toy room. Furthermore and attached at the back of the garden, we have 4 acres pasture land, where we run a small Equine Therapy Program with 8 horses and the bee sanctuary.

About Thomas Ring
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 buisness 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!
Thomas Ring purchased this villa in 2009
Why Thomas Ring chose Otavalo
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!
What makes this villa unique
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 hemisperes. Tomorrow you can do a trail ride and have tea time at a colonial hacienda. And change your flights - stay a week longer!
