About
Description
Ours is a different spot. Our family home and farm offers unique homestay experiences in the Peruvian Cloud forest near Machu Picchu. We have a number of beds and are set in Peru's beautiful cloud forest. The More main house is also home to the family and we serve home-cooked peruvian and international food. We grow our own organic coffee and a wide range of tropical fruit. The buildings are surrounded by lush tropical vegetation and we have two rivers nearby. The location is perfect for travellers on their way to Machu Picchu who want to see a little bit more of the real Peru. Many of our packages include dinner and breakfast and we offer optional coffee and cocoa-roasting workshops as well as tours of our farm and local walks. We are in a gorgeous yet isolated spot. Our guests are those who appreciate something a little different and who understand the importance of stepping off the beaten path. We don't do en-suite, but we do offer an experience you'll not easily forget. Less
