We just spent two nights at Casa del Conde and were thoroughly enchanted. The location is truly magical - serene, and green, with gorgeous little cabins in a lovely garden - with amazing vistas of the mountains and fields of Pisac. The short walk into town is easy and scenic - on an old Incan road, past corn fields and cows. If you are too tired to walk, no problem - take a moto-taxi for about $2, but walking home by moonlight after a nice dinner in town was part of the cultural experience of staying in the Sacred Valley.
Staying with Cecilia is like visiting a dear old friend. She doesn't smother you or intrude on your holiday, but is totally relaxed, and makes you feel the old adage, mi casa es su casa, truly applies. Her staff also are like family, and provide a magnificant service - lovely breakfasts, clean rooms, and a feeling that nothing is a problem.
Cecilia was like a one stop travel agency, with no commission. She arranged a driver (Wilbur) to meet us at the airport. Fee was very reasonable, and Wilbur is a very safe driver, who pointed out sites, and stopped at lookouts on the way to let us take photos of the incredible views. Day 2, again at a very fair rate, he took us up and waited while we visited the ruins above Pisac - a site not to be missed. He hooked us up with a wonderful English speaking guide who spent over 2.5 hours with us for only 50 soles. Day 3 he drove us to our next hotel in Ollantaytambo, making stops to see the amazing arqueological site of Moray, and salt mining pools near Maras.
To top things off, after we were dropped off at our next hotel, I realised I has stupidly left my passport in the room at Casa Del Conde. Total freak-out, until I rang Cecilia. Very calmly - no problem, she arranged for the lovely Wilbur to make the 3 hr return trip with my passport, early the next day before our train left. Sure we paid his fee again, but it was very reasonable, and we felt totally secure, and were not disappointed. Thanks Cecilia, Nora, Wilbur and Lucio!
