La Casa Sol

Quito & the Northern Andes

Rating: Modest    

La Casa Sol overview

La Casa Sol is a small lodge with friendly local staff just 3kms north of Otavalo, where you'll have lovely views of the valley and Andean mountains. You're welcome to take life easy and soak up the relaxed atmosphere of the lodge and its gardens, and you can also visit Otavalo and observe the markets and festivals.
With just 8 rooms and 2 suites, la Casa Sol has an intimate feel. Each room has an ensuite bathroom with hot and cold running water, an open fire for cool evenings and a balcony where you can relax in peace. They are decorated in warm colours and feature bright local textiles.  
The dining room serves tasty local food. It has an outdoor terrace for al fresco dining. On cooler days you'll be indoors and can enjoy the heat of the fire. If you want a quiet day at the lodge you can browse through a book in the reading room, enjoy a game of cards or catch up with news and sporting events on the TV. There is a shop which sells locally made arts and handicrafts. These make wonderful souvenirs and gifts and sales help support local families.
When you want to get out and about, the lodge has mountain bikes which you can use to explore the local area. Staff can arrange cultural visits to local towns and villages. This is a good area to explore on foot, too, with many enjoyable walks in the neighbourhood.
