Lovable labs Bianca, Nera and Lolo are mobile soft furnishings in their own right and every bit as hospitable as their owners. Ask Valentina to explain the provenance of the antique textiles and fixing pins hung decoratively in the hallway; they are the spoils of many fascinating trips across the Andean region. The hotel has two bikes to borrow for free if you fancy getting up close and personal with the jaw-dropping terrain.

Our favourite rooms
The Superior Suite up its own staircase on the first floor offers extra privacy and an expansive terrace overlooking the mountains. Cowhide rugs, age-worn wooden benches, and hefty woven ponchos and blankets offset whitewash walls and linens. The wooden-shuttered garden room underneath has the same views and comes with a wicker rocking chair for languid sundowners.
An unheated pool commands majestic mountain views in the finca’s gardens, complete with big-cushioned recliners and wooden decks.
Rockstar cowboy boots and mud-flecked moleskins.
In-room massages and beauty treatments can be arranged on request; cooking classes take place in the finca’s cosy kitchen.
Kids staying here will get plenty of fresh air, and the hotel has footballs and badminton rackets to use on their gorgeous grounds. Meals can be adapted for kids, and rooms 4 and 5 interconnect into a family room. Baby cots can be added for free.
