San Jorge is an ideal place to relax after a long journey to Ecuador and acclimatize to higher altitudes. The owner George is a great source of information and is very helpful in finetuning the plans for exploring the country.
The food was excellent and the whole family made me feel really at home

George, My daughters, Lucciana and Rachael, and I loved our stay at San Jorge. We had the most wonderful time there, and you went out of your way to make us feel comfortable. The bicycle ride through the cloud forest was a highlight, and something we will never forget. Another very memorable evening was when we relaxed and chatted in your kitchen, while my daughters played with your children. Staying at your beautiful was the perfect way to relax after visiting the Amazon and Galapagos.

Dear future guests,
Since one year, we're sending 2 groups of Dutch tourists to San Jorge every month .... The view is spectacular, the food is good, the fireplaces in the rooms are lovely, and you wouldn't expect such tranquility at such a small distance from Quito .... A perfect place to relax, and start your holidays in Ecuador!

Needing a reprieve from the City, but not wishing to travel too far; I felt fortunate to learn about San Jorge; so close, but a world apart from the city. I spent a lovely weekend, breathing the fresh air, enjoying good food and lodging with nature all about. I returned to the City, refreshed. I Highly recommend this .

I had the most relaxing 4 days of my visit to Ecuador staying at the . Staff were charming and could not do enough to ensure that my stay was as enjoyable as possible. The scenery was absolutely beautiful and on a clear day, I would strongly recommend climbing to Roca Pichincha to enjoy the stunning views over Quito and the mountains.

Fantastic setting, lovely wood fires, excellent trecks on horse back. This place was lucky find at the end of along hot journey round Ecuador.
Far enough from the madding crowd of Quito but close enough to the airport.
