Our house is the perfect city rush escape. A great place to surround yourself with nature and adventure and of course experience Machu Picchu without any hassle.
The house located 50 mins away from Cusco. Only 20 mins from Ollantaytambo's main train station to Machu Picchu.
Urubamba is a small town also known as Sacred Valley of the Incas. It is full of mysticism, history, ruins, adventure sports (water rafting, zip lining, extreme downhill, etc.) and great gastronomy. It is also home to many foreigners who visited the Valley and never left.
This mystical paradise is also well known for its Ayahuasca retreats, coca leaf readings and shamanism, locals have a very deep respect for pacha mama (mother earth) and often thank her for all her blessings through offering ceremonies which are also available to visitors upon request.
One of the many good things about Urubamba is that although it is a rural location, you can always enjoy the benefits of the several 5 star hotels in the area such as Spa's and high end restaurants.
There are many activities to enjoy and close by places to visit such as Pisaq, Maras y Moray, Ollantaytambo, Aguas Calientes, Salineras, Cusco, etc.
But if you like the less traditional touristy spots, you can always walk the inca trail to Machu Picchu, visit the Hot Springs of Lares, visit trout farms, lakes, book a night with Sky Lodge, in one of their mountain hanging clear capsules also known as the Condor's nest, etc.
The possibilities are endless.
The best time to travel to Peru and visit Machu Picchu would be between May and October, rainy season is from December until March.
We hope you find our humble town as interesting and entertaining as we do and decide to visit soon!
