When we finally pulled into the drive at the Inkaterra villas, all we could say (along with the taxi driver) was --Wow!
The previous reviewer was spot on; beautiful gardens, interesting local artifacts in the villa's decor, very comfortable furnishings; perfectly lovely for us during a rainy evening.
Sitting in front of a fire built by the villa's private housekeeper, having a glass of wine while she cooked a homemade dinner was a great way to unwind before attempting the altitude, and walking the cathedrals and museums of Cusco.
We had come from Inkaterra's Machu Picchu lodge which kept us very busy; the relaxation factor really kicked in at the villa.
The ambiance is gracious luxury; we wish we had such a villa to visit more often. The pictures posted are perfect so I did not need to add any. I'd definitely recommend a stay here while touring the Sacred Valley.
