On a hillside outside of Nabon, overlooking the León Valley, is an enchanting place that is beyond fairy tale dreams come true! It is the magical home of Maria Graciela Vintimilla called “China” by her friends. The house is named after her mother Laura. It is about a 90 minute drive from Cuenca.
China is a whimsical folk artist, and her artistry is visible all throughout the property.
The view of the Leon Valley is constantly changing with the colors of the cloud cover. Rainbows are frequent!
China’s Chicken Vegetable Soup is famous, and worth the trip! A party of at least 12 persons is required for a visit, and lunch.
China had a show of her art at the Cuenca Municipal Casa de Lira this past year.
