This exclusive early 17th century hacienda is now owned by an Englishman who has been careful to preserve the hacienda’s heritage whilst developing a welcoming retreat.

Set in seven acres of land with views to the snow-capped mountains, the garden boasts 58 plant species attracting 49 species of bird.

There are 25 guestrooms within the main building, a couple of secluded garden cottages within the grounds and 15 rooms within the Monasterio complex, next to the estate’s chapel.
