The finca started 40 years ago as a citrus plantation when Paul Trussart left his native country Belgium, looking for land to materialize his wild agricultural dreams. Fast forward to today, only few of these trees exist, with the lessons that all of these experiences brought.​

Just 2 years ago, the Finca started re-focusing on a broader vision that can be synthesised as a life's celebration, or what the Inga people call "Suma Kaugsai": "The Sacred Art of Good Living".

The place is a homage to beauty, and to the life of our mother and grandmother, Jackeline Locufier.
