Le Rendez-Vous


Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Vilcabamba, Ecuador
Nestled on the edge of this remote town sits an oasis.

In today's world of constant news and instant messages, it's not easy to find a place that offers the comforts and hospitality of a well run inn. No telephones or TV here to distract from the beauty and peace of this tranquil paradise.


Located in a quiet and traditional town of unparalleled beauty, Le Rendez-Vous is an eight room guesthouse attentively run by owners Sergio and Isabel. A working dream come true, this young couple are confident in their ideas of how a French run bed and breakfast should be. The reasonable nightly price of $8.00 per person (for double room) includes a fantastic breakfast. Bread, freshly baked by Isabel, eggs, juice and hot chocolate are graciously served onto your terrace table.



Gated and private, this quaint and clean hostal offers garden and mountain views from each adobe style room. Le Rendez-Vous is just a four minute walk to the charming downtown Vilcabamba. Unmatched for offering value, its immaculate, comfortable rooms with private baths have hot water on demand.

Mornings are filled with bird songs, and a peek out the window will show you mist lifting off the towering mountains. Sway the afternoon away in your personal hammock, listening to nature, while watching the sun cross the sky.


After a day of doing nothing, you might want to take one of the numerous hikes into the surrounding countryside, offering panoramic views of Vilcabamba. End the afternoon with a glass of wine on your terrace. The Incas called Vilcabamba The Sacred Valley. Throughout Ecuador locals know it as the valley of longevity with distinctive beauty and a simple spa resort atmosphere.


At 1550 meters, the climate is welcoming; nothing shocking to the system to brace against, and the locals are gentle and friendly.

It is the perfect place to sit back, get a massage, ride horseback trails, or write your next novel.


If you prefer more company, visit other restaurants and bars, get to know some locals, or meet world savvy expats who just can't seem to leave this shangri-la.

Enjoy Vilcabamba with tranquility and style. Le Rendez-Vous is the perfect place to recharge.
