Finca Santa Rosa is a farm where the plantain fruit is cultivated from which our Chifles are made. It is located on an extremely diverse terrain in the province of Loja, in the southern part of Ecuador – in South America. This region is famous for its beautiful surroundings, clean air, perfect weather (24 degrees Celsius all year round), lower atmospheric pressure (1600 metres above sea level), water richer in iron, and thus – healthy vegetables and fruit. It is there in southern Ecuador – on an idyllic plateau surrounded by the mighty Andes – that the small village of Vilcabamba is situated. In the language of the Incas, the place is called Quechua, which name translates as the „Holy Man’s Valley”. This place is truly special. Nowhere in the Western world are there more people as elderly enjoying top health. Generations of scientists and physicians have tried to solve the mystery of the Vilcabamba longevity. Some claim that the water from the VilcabambaChamba River has therapeutic propereties. Others maintain that the mild climate and a stable temperature between 18 and 22 degrees Celsius are responsible for their longevity. The plantation is located 1,600 metres above sea level, awashed by the extremely clean air, which is purified by the supposedly mystical plant called „hilo”.
