Quinua Villa Boutique is an inspired, skillfully crafted labor of love. The proprietor, Cristiano, is an Italian with a master's degree in Andean history from the University of North Carolina. During his time conducting research for his thesis in Cusco he fell in love with the city, and five years later Quinua was born. Cristiano honored the centuries-old traditions of craftsmanship and stone masonry in his construction. In fact there are original Inca walls throughout the compact complex which has four rooms currently completed ( a fifth should be ready in the near future).
What Quinua offers are self-sufficient apartments complete with fully appointed kitchens, fireplaces, hot water, and in one case a beautiful sauna! When you stay here you just have to buy some groceries and you are set. Each of the apartments has a theme and is decorated both cleverly and gorgeously. The location of Quinua in the upper regions of the San Blas neighborhood provides it with an astonishing view encompassing the ruins of Saqsaywaman all the way to the Apu of Ausangate.
Quinua is about a ten minute walk from the bustling center of town, but it feels like a sanctuary in comparison. There is wifi, cable television, and central heating (a true rarity in Cusco).
When we return to Cusco there is no question where we will stay. Quinua is like a home away from home (just a lot nicer than our home in Maine!).
