This review is long overdue! This was one of the highlights of our week in Peru. My boyfriend and I stayed here in April 2014 for two days and one night, on our way to Machu Picchu. We would have stopped in on our way back, if we had had the time. Tatiana's place is beautiful, lush, and truly magical. We ate like kings, thanks to her delicious cooking and learned a lot about the area, politics, current issues over dinnertime conversations with her and her father. I can't even count all the fruits and vegetables that grow on their land - coffee, cacao, passion fruit, bananas, avocados...
There are amazing trails - short and long - to wander into the Peruvian jungle. There's even a hot spring down at the Quellomayo river to rest your legs. Tatiana drew us a map of how to get out and trek to M.P, though we really didn't want to leave. We hope to be back soon! Thank you for everything, Tatiana, especially those cheese sandwiches that you sent us off with. They were a life-saver!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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 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. ... more less
