Here is a new project with water and view lots near Cuenca.


This is a new 15 lot development near Cuenca overlooking the Paute River Valley.

On our first trip to Ecuador about 16 years ago Merri and I fell in love with the country side outside of Cuenca.  We nearly bought a hacienda in this area but did not due to lack of water.  Since that time we have looked at hundreds of real estate projects in Ecuador and very few are on the water.

So I was very interested to see so much water in the new Rio Vista Linda project.

Other features for all lot owners include access to the reservoir at the end of the property. There is variety of lot options in Phase One. Four lots have water views, four are in a large meadow, and two are hillside view lots.  There are also five lots in Phase Two. Of the 15 lots… two have been taken.

The developers have permission to plant trees or shrubs along the Paute Reservoir easement.

These lots also appeal to those who wish to garden or farm. The soil is rich,  will produce many  different crops and the land has irrigation rights to a water canal on the lots.  The four meadow lots are large enough to have horses, cows  or other animals.   This is a rich farming area and  the University of Cuenca’s agricultural program is on an adjacent property.

The reservoir is also designated as a recreational area for boating or other activities.

There are ten lots in phase one.  If water interests you read the paid advertisement below… then meander through the project’s website and if interested get in touch with the developer. Here is the paid ad.

Rio Vista Linda

Nestled in the magical Paute River Valley is beautiful Rio Vista Linda. This little bit of Heaven located in the Andes Mountains has everything to make you feel right at home!

Wonderful rich and productive farm land surrounds you on all sides. And of course you can produce a fantastic garden of your own!

Breathtaking views of the lush river valley, Paute Reservoir, and surrounding mountains are  the first impressions you get from your new home site.

Next you notice the rich deep soil and mild temperate climate perfect for growing just about anything. The crystal clear mountain water in the canal, and pure fresh air are so invigorating. The land is lower and warmer than Cuenca.

It’s private, quite, peaceful and safe. Just perfect for your new  home in the country!

Minutes away is the small village of Guachapala. It’s a quaint farming village with real charm. If you need something  there are small convenience stores. You will also find a car wash, small restaurants, taxi cabs, police station, new sport arena and soccer field, an even a children’s water park with refreshment area. Country conveniences near home!

Ten minutes drive is the bustling town of Paute where you’ll find shops, restaurants, banks, hardware stores, building supplies, and a year round farmers market with every kind of fresh fruit and vegetables imaginable!  The whole community comes out for market days and it’s quite a sight to behold!

Back on the land there are several lot types to choose from. You can have water views, valley views or meadow lots which are large enough to have a horse if you wish.

There is building activity in the area and some existing wonderful homes
