We spent 2 nights at Casa Colibri with our 9 month old twins, as part of our 10 day trip from Cusco to MP and back. We are experienced travelers and look to get off the beaten path. Casa Colibri is outstanding!! It is secluded, with great walks to secluded Inca Ruins right from the front door. It is also a short 20 min walk to the center of Urubamba which has a fantastic central market, as well as a short drive to Ollataytambo and Pisac and the surrounding ruins. The grounds at Casa Colibri are breathtaking. Barbara and Robert made us feel right at home, as they spent time playing with our boys. They are phenomenal cooks, and invite the guests into their home for all the meals. The meals are homemade and gourmet, and certainly the best we had in Peru ( which in general has excellent cuisine). The bungalows are comfortable and spacious. Barbara and Robert are very serious about making this a true "ecolodge," where they grow their own organic vegetables, get eggs from their chickens, buy locally grown grains and produce for their meals, and conserve and recycle their precious water. They also make it a priority to teach English to and employ local people. Very comfortable and laid back. Maybe the best place we have ever stayed, and at a fantastic value. Can't wait to return.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Casa Colibri eco-Lodge is centrally located just outside Urubamba, close to all the archeological sites in the Sacred Valley. Trains to Machu Picchu are only 20 minutes away. It's at a much lower altitude, (2900 mtrs) than Cuzco, (3400 mtrs) so it's perfect for your acclimatization. The casitas are sited around a large central garden with native trees, winding paths and scented pergolas. The lodge is our project in sustainable living. For us this means doing our best to conserve resources for future generations, avoiding waste and living in harmony with our environment. We have created a series of thriving organic kitchen and flower gardens hosting wildlife from hummingbirds and parrots to bees and butterflies! Special interest groups are more than welcome... Our yoga groups appreciate the purpose-built meditation room and the tranquility of the gardens, and foodies always leave wishing they'd booked a longer stay :)Above all Casa Colibri aims to be a relaxing and homely base, from which to explore all the wonderful sites around the Sacred Valley. ... more less
