Staying at Francesca's beautiful 15th Century home in the middle of the Old City is a rare treat. You feel part of the history of the Quito itself as Francesca shows you family heirlooms, talks about her passion for everything Ecuador and for her home which has been in the family for generations. Every corner is decorated in her bohemian and quirky style that is totally comfortable and charming. She went out of her way to give me ideas about activities to take part in during my stay; every morning we had a lovely--and healthy breakfast of fruits, yogurt, homemade almond milk, granola or muesli, and great Ecuadoran coffee. I couldn't have asked for a better start to my adventure in this beautiful country!

Francesca's home is a beautiful, precious jewel that we were lucky enough to experience. It's a historic home in colonial Quito; everywhere you look, there is something amazing to see, from the interior patio and it's lush foliage to the wide staircase, windchimes, art, cats, books .... and smells of natural herbs and fresh fruit. It's the best way to experience Quito center. Francesca is a warm considerate host who is happy to share her experience with her guests. My daughter fell ill and Francesca went out of her way to suggest and offer natural remedies and solutions. My husband arrived later in the week and he, too, could feel the magic of Francesca's home . It was an incredible experience. We are so grateful.

While our first visit to Ecuador included an incredible trip to the cloud forest and a jungle hike to several waterfalls, staying at Francesca's beautiful historic Quito home was the most impressive part of our trip. Francesca's hospitality was incredibly comforting as she made us feel truly at home from the moment we arrived. The eclectic decor and artwork throughout her comfortable home was as intriguing as some of the nearby museums. Francesca was quick to offer details on many area activities and worthwhile restaurants. We looked forward very much to visiting with Francesca each morning at breakfast. On any return trips to Quito, there is no other place we'd rather spend our time than in this wonderful home of an equally wonderful person.

A very nice and unique place to stay in Quito. The house is one of the oldest in Quito and it is full of history and character. The guest room is very private, it is located in a separate wing of the house, together with a private bathroom, walk-in wardrobe and a place with a desk to work overlooking the patio. Though located on a vibrant street in the very center of the old town, the house is very quiet, because windows face the inner patio ( full of plants and flowers) rather than streets. Great place to stay. The host, Francesca is a wonderful person, and extremely helpful. We felt like visiting an old friend rather than being guests. We can highly recommend the place!

It's difficult to imagine (or describe) a better host in Francesca or a more beautiful accommodation than her family home in Old Town, Quito. The home, and our room within, far exceeded expectations. And they were high to begin. The home is expansive, clean, private, beautifully decorated, and authentically restored. Our room was equally clean and just what we needed. As for Francesca (and her son Nichos) there's not space within the body of a public review to share enough kind words and praise. She: Arranged a car to and from the Quito airport; prepared breakfast each morning (and late night snacks!); made helpful recommendations re: what to do and how to get around. And then there's the conversation! Simply, our stay in Quito was perfect due to Francesca's and Nicho's warm hospitality and beautiful home.

I had an incredible stay at Francesca's home in Quito. The house is perfectly located in the old city. It is an amazing house - rich with history, beautifully done. The bedroom itself is actually a comfortable series of rooms - a windowed nook to write, a private bathroom, a walk-through closet and an adorable bedroom, where fruit, chocolate and tea were awaiting my arrival. Francesca was a wonderful host - introducing me to new fruits I'd never eaten, helping to arrange my transportation to the airport, and sharing with me the history of the house. I can't recommend this highly enough!

A Bernini sculpture of a host. You did not live Quito to the fullest if you didn’t stay at Francesca’s place You did not discover the magic of Ecuador if you didn’t meet this enchanting artist and welcoming person who will make your stay more than pleasant with great conversation, sound tips for everything and out of this world breakfast, among other. A must meet one.

I am a happy member of Airbnb. I currently live in Ecuador, I work in the arts. I am a painter. Happy to share our "slow house".

I, we are, indeed, privileged to be able to restore our 475 year-old historic house in Quito's "Centro Histórico". Ours is one of the few historic houses which has always been "alive" and well kept. Historians: Fray José María Vargas, Dr. Fernando Jurado have written about our house. When you choose us, you are helping us continue our work. We love to share our big house, our comfortable kitchen, our sesame milk, our organic homemade bread (when we can get non-GMO flour), coffee, etc. We found clear evidence of a very interesting, XVI century fresco right in our kitchen!!! We really like that our guests feel welcome, at home. Living here is like traveling, comfortably, back in time.

If you choose to stay somewhere else, come and visit us anyway. We will be happy to welcome you and share our art, some of what we do.


Difundir la belleza autnéntica de Quito y del Ecuador a través de Airbnb es un verdadero placer. Actualmente estoy en Ecuador, trabajo en las artes. Ésta es una casa lenta/slow house.

Nos sentimos felices al restaurar y mantener esta bella casa histórica, de 475 años, en pleno corazón del Centro Histórico de Quito. Célebres historiadores como Fray José María Vargas, el Doctor Fernando Jurado han investigado y escrito acerca de este entrañable espacio. Es más, encontramos partes de un antiguo fresco del Siglo XVI, rastro dominico en la cocina; varios miembros de la Orden Dominicana vivieron, temporalmente, en esta casa, durante el Siglo XVI y mientras construían su convento.

Nos encanta saber quenuestros visitantes se sientan bien, queremos que se sientan bienvenidos. Es un gusto compartir la "sala grande", comedor y acogedora cocina...

Valoramos y compartimos productos orgánicos, café de altura, cacao arriba, leche de ajonjolí, pan sin levadura, (hecho en casa, cuando conseguimos harina orgánica). Vivir en este espacio es como viajar cómodamente en el tiempo, y mediante múltiples intervenciones durante cuatro siglos y pico, actualmente, al menos a principios del Siglo XX y XXI.
