AL00-best logo for docs.png

Welcome to Burrobamba, an idyllic paradise in Quinara, Loja, Ecuador. A haven embracing both nature and sophistication, encompassing nearly 4 hectares of lush land that extends from a clean canal at the top to a tranquil river below.


This breathtaking property, originally developed as an animal sanctuary and a sanctuary for those healing from various health problems, offers an astonishing array of features. Numerous flat areas are interspersed across the landscape, along with two large orchards brimming with mature citrus trees, avocados, mangos, bananas, coffee, and more. An additional plantation of at least 50 newly planted trees (including mango, papaya, fig, grapefruit, almond, and many more) adds to the verdant surroundings.


Irrigation and water storage are handled with finesse, utilizing an extensive gravity-fed system from the canal and providing over 10,000 liters of water storage for orchards, pastures, and gardens. Extensive fencing safeguards two shelters designated for livestock such as donkeys, horses, and cows, and a separate contained area is designed for dogs, goats, or chickens.


The property boasts three distinct and artistic homes, all accessible by a well-maintained driveway:


A 2-bedroom brick guesthouse, gracefully located up top.


A 1-bedroom wood & brick cabin, nestled amidst extensive gardens.


A 2-story adobe home, marked by solid construction and many artistic touches, including eucalyptus beams harvested from the land itself.

Additionally, a hand-crafted bamboo/wood camping structure near the river adds a rustic charm, and two more suitable sites are available for future building with road access.


Off-grid living is complemented with solar power in the main home, cold storage/root cellar, and very low EMF, verified by professionals. An outdoor shower house & tub, situated in the central orchard (equipped with a 26-liter calefón), offers a unique bathing experience.


Peacefulness reigns supreme, with no neighbors living within 2 km. The property is surrounded only by agriculture and the gentle sound of the river below, ensuring undisturbed tranquility. Incredible views of the surrounding mountains and river can be enjoyed from every level.


The conveniences of Quinara are just a 10-minute drive or a 20-minute riverside walk away, offering restaurants, stores, schools, and more. Two dug-out natural (tilapia) ponds near the river and a cultivation of medicinal plants, camote, yuca, & zanahoria blanca reinforce the property's connection to nature.


All structures were built  4 years ago, reflecting the quality of construction, beautiful nature, and attention to detail. Photos and videos can further attest to the allure of this one-of-a-kind property.


A commitment to natural harmony has been a guiding principle in the development of this property. The current owner has maintained a steadfast policy of not using any chemicals on the land, ensuring that its integrity is preserved. This conscious approach resonates throughout the orchards, gardens, and pastures, enhancing the purity of the surroundings and aligning with those who seek a life connected to unspoiled nature.


Whether seeking healing, inspiration, or a life intertwined with nature,  Finca Burrobamba is a rare and enchanting find. Contact us to explore this practically new haven that has so much to offer.
