A warm country home offering a B&B in a gorgeous valley in the Andes Mountains located just outside of the colonial town of Alausi. This house has accommodation for 8 people 2 in each room max. With 3 acres of land and plenty of day hikes to explore.

The space

Very comfortable beds with huge windows to have the natural light come in during the day and have the stars shine at night.

Guest access

Guest will have access at the grounds of the farm and everything on the first floor except my bedroom.

Other things to note

Alausi is known for the famous train ride “El Nariz del Diablo”, but why not walk it? Walking the railroad tracks you get to use your other senses that are obstructed from the train cars speeding away. Ask me for a guided tour and I’ll show you places that not even native people from Alausi have seen.

Loved staying at Victors place! His farm was pretty cool!! The breakfast was also delicious and all made by products within his farm. Highly recommended for solo travelers, families, and just about anyone that's looking for a place to just relax and enjoy the view. Victor was also an excellent host, easy to talk to, and super willing to help.

We stayed at Victor's before doing the Devil's Nose train whilst exploring Ecuador on our honeymoon. Victor and Beatrice were so warm and welcoming, the farm is beautiful and we had one of the best breakfasts on our whole trip. Would highly recommend a stay here!

Great place to stay in Alausi that is close enough to town to walk anywhere you need to go but just far enough out on the periphery to be peaceful, quiet, and "muy tranquilo." Great hosts, wonderful breakfast and a joy to stay there.

Victor and I are both small farmers so we had lots to talk about!! His gardens are beautiful and grand! The house is lovely and clean and the breakfasts are made with food straight from the farm. The place is close enough to walk from town, but far enough to feel like it is out in the fields. I can't wait to get down here again with my daughter!!

The room was super clean and beautiful in a lovely setting right outside of town. We had a nice time here. Though we are pretty steady hikers the total nariz trek took us 8 hours but it was definitely worth it.

Victor Brian's place in Alausi is a fantastic destination, with or without the Nariz de Diablo train trip, if you would like a peaceful, pastoral setting with access to excellent hiking. The host is very accommodating and really enjoys making from-scratch breakfasts. His kitchen is very well equipped if you plan to cook, and the common space is spacious and comfortable, with a kind of "hacienda" atmosphere. His airbnb description is spot-on.

We enjoyed our stay at Victor's farm. The room is in the farm itself, while there is some hostel accommodation in a separate building. The setting is great! It is a real farm with lots of fruit and we had coffee from the plant next to the house. It's just a short nice walk from the town center and the train station. Victor made us a nice breakfast with homemade bread, jam and coffee. He has been a great host, helping us in finding our way around Alausi.

About Victor Brian

Hello, my name is Victor Rivadeneira. I was born and raised in Stamford CT. Both of my parents are Ecuadorian and immigrated to the States in the 70’s. I believe I was very fortune to have traveled to Ecuador every year for the entire summer vacation since I was a baby. When my father passed away in 2010 I inherited this farm in Alausi. Since then I converted this land to ONLY produce organic products that I sell locally to Alausi. My goal if you stay here is to inspire you to create your own little garden at home either on the balcony of your small apartment in the city or in your back yard in the suburbs. Growing your own food is my passion, and I want to share it with you!
