We met Deirdre, the owner of Cusco Cottages and her grandchildren at the Chocolate Museum in Cusco. The kids hit it off and Deidre invited us to stay at her cottage on our way to Machu Piccu. When we arrived, we quickly realized that we had won the jackpot. We had been travelling for months, staying mostly in small hotels and hostels so we were amazed to discover that we had an entire luxury cottage to ourselves! Plus the scenery around Urumbamba is gorgeous and such a nice place to escape the hustle and bustle of Cusco. Diedre defintitely has a knack for interior decoration because the cottage is beautifully decorated, warm and inviting. It was great to sit by the fire in the evening with a glass of wine and then head off to our plush beds. On the second night Deidre invited us to hang out with by the bonfire and roast marshmallows. While the kids played, Deidre and her husband Efrain, shared their knowledge about the local culture and gave us tips on places to explore in Peru. It really felt like we had found a oasis of calm and beauty in one of the most beautiful spots in the world. We will remember these two days for the rest of our lives.
