I spent several days at Hacienda la Florida and greatly enjoyed getting to know the family and exploring the area. The rooms are clean and beautiful and it is a great place for children to explore the farm. Staff are available to take them around to feed and visit the animals and families can explore independently as well. I loved my side trips to Huaricolca and hiking around the Gruta de Huagapo. Tarma makes a really pleasant base for several side trips and Hacienda la Florida is removed from the noise of the city while being very easy to access with affordable and quick public transportation.

Our time spent at the hacienda was relaxing and inspiring, and we learned new things every day. Pepe, Inge, Marcos, & Johannes made us feel like family. The food was delicious, and the animals friendly. We took many walks through the wild and wonderful jardin, spotting owls and hummingbirds. We will surely be back next time we're in Peru!

Our three nights in this 300-year-old hacienda were something of an adventure, as we had doubted the reports of a 7-hour requirement to drive up from LIma. We wish it had taken only 7 hours, as we had faulty directions and getting out of a city of 10 million with almost no highway numbers and horrible traffic congestion added a couple of hours to that number. We finally hired a cab to lead us out of the city, and the traffic up the mountains was pretty bad. But you might conclude that two old guys were crazy to rent a car and make the trek that way.

In any event, our host Marcos was very helpful, and provided a lot of interesting history about the place, from its 300 years of history to the time the Shining Path terrorists burned the place and searched for his father with the goal of assassination. We later met his father and a brother at dinner, and based on our eating experiences in town, we highly recommend the dinners here.

An 80-acre working farm with a variety of crops is part of the estate, which provides employment for 20 Peruvians. It was interesting to see them going about their work. The high mountains rising behind the hacienda provide an excellent backdrop. The headaches that resulted from the 10,000 foot elevation were cured by a special tea and putting some rolled-up local leaves between your teeth for a while. Coca leaves are for sale by the bushel in the local markets if you are interested.

While the rooms are unheated, we were not terribly uncomfortable in them at night, and were told that January is the cold season in this part of Peru. There was plenty of hot water, adequate breakfasts with the room, and suggestions for sights to see in the area. The rooms, while basic, are clean. And the price was unbeatable. We can certainly recommend it to you.

There are few haciendas left in Peru after the Velasco dictatorship. Most were confiscated through the Agrarian Reform. The remaining ones in the Central Sierra were attacked by Shining Path. Few survived--among them La Florida. It has a storied past, that goes back three centuries.

A beautiful property, that plants corn, artichokes, blueberries, etc. It has some cows, which produce great cheese and butter. Free range eggs are part of the hearty breakfast. Do purchase the honey, butter, cheese and marmalades that they serve you at breakfast. Ecological methods and artisanal recipes make a winning combination.

There is a 'secret garden' that inspired the Peruvian writer Julio Ramon Ribeyro to write 'Silvio en el Rosedal'. The property also has the biggest pine tree, I think in Peru--still standing in good health. There is ample space to roam in the gardens, light a fire, picnic or just lay in the sun. The air is crystal clear and you are 10 kms away from Tarma.

The rooms vary. Most have extra-thick adobe walls and tend to be cold. Some have been recently refurbished. Ours was spartan and basic, but with a good bed. Good water pressure in the bathrooms, and plenty of hot water.

Our package included dinner--which was very tasty and inventive. Besides there are few dining options in Tarma.

The service is cordial and homely, and they go the extra mile to make your stay a pleasant one. This is my second visit, and I want to go back again.

Room Tip: There are new suites with a view of the valley, backpacker rooms and the older rooms in the courtyard.

La Hacienda Florida means something along the lines of, The Flower Farm. It is a Spanish estate from the late 17th century that has been renovated yet still retains its characteristic antiqueness that gives it so much charm.

I was also very pleased to discover that they have year round sunshine, which was a necessary relief from the overcast of Lima. Located at 10000 feet, the surrounding mountains and the stone houses of Tarma are incredibly beautiful and remind you that you are somewhere exotic. The 3 hour drive to Tarma from Lima passes well over 15000 feet and is stunning. The hacienda is also only an hour away from the Chanchamayo, a high altitude jungle.

The breakfast and dinner are extremely delicious. They often invite you into their dining room for breakfast and dinner creating a very cozy and personal experience. The family that owns the Hacienda are very friendly and hospitable. The staff is charming as well.
