Rio Uchima - Green Real Estate for sale in Vilcabamba Ecuador
Vilcabamba, the "valley of longevity" - San Pedro
As of December 2011, we, the owners of this 70 hectare property,
Anita Evans and Pierre Wauters, have decided not to pursue with this project in its current form described on this and the following web pages. A number of unsold quintas (e.g. Q3, Q3B, Q13, Q8, Q9, Q12, Q16, Q5) are to be joined (with all the space between them except the road) into a large and independent property for sale. This property, of a size to be determined around 25 hectares, is for sale with unsealed road access (private road shared with the owners of the 7 sold quintas), water right (spring and/or river to
be discussed), power (independent) and broadband internet. There are different ways to group the quintas and instead of making a rigid proposition, we prefer to leave it open for discussion. Please come and see it. It will be a unique and
exciting opportunity for a family or a business to acquire a stunning piece of real
estate in one of the best parts of Vilcabamba. There is simply no such piece of
property available anymore. Contact us through the contact page of this web site
for expressions of interest.
A special note regarding Q17 listed as "under contract". This quinta was "sold" (i.e. in exchange for a letter of debt) to an Ecuadorian local resident for a community project which unfortunately had to be shelved. It is now for sale. The new owner has made great vegetable gardens and orchard (mango, avocado, citrus, banana). The land offers an elevated building site away from the river (similar to Q1 building site), easy road access, power and river water supply. This info supersedes whatever is written on the Q17 page. Contact us for expressions of interest and we will pass the requests to its owner.
If you are looking for green real estate in Ecuador, whether you want to live here
or make a secure investment (*), Vilcabamba is definitely a place to consider.
Prices tend to be a little high in Vilcabamba, higher than in other places in Ecuador
but still very attractive. This is due to the popularity of Vilcabamba, the "valley
of longevity" with its ideal climate, lifestyle, abundance of food and also its
cosmopolitan expat community. People come here to live not only from the USA but
also from the UK, France, Belgium, Germany among other countries.

For those of you who like pictures more than words, here is a picasa photo tour of the Rio Uchima property.
And for those of you who are still big kids in their hearts, below is our 5 year
old daughter's sitemap of the property, showing quinta 1 and quinta 5, a red flying
pig, a butterfly and lots of rocks along the river. Luckily, the building sites
are somewhat flatter than represented :-)
(*)September 2009: Money, irrespective of currency,
is not safe. It can be devalued at the blink of an eye or it can disappear alltogether.
Land on the other hand is safe because it is REAL. Land is not an arbitrary "I owe
you" piece of paper. The earth only has a finite number of square meters on it,
albeit a very high number. The "good square meters" are the ones that have pure
air and pure water as well as the ability to provide food and safe shelter. It is
as simple as that. If you find yourself owning money, now is the time to convert
it into something REAL such as land. If you value mother earth and your health,
if you think that you can agree with our basic principles as outlined on this web
site, now is the time to buy.
