I found Las Chullpas in HostelBookers.com and stayed for many days. It is a perfect and tranquil place to stay while exploring the Sacred Valley.
It is situated in a small forest on the outskirts of Urubamba but is far enough away to feel you are right out in the country and moutains, although the town is only minutes away by taxi. Taxis were easily arranged by the owner and are inexpensive in Peru.
The room was beautiful and they all have chimneys and fireplaces so that you can make a real fire in the evenings.
I had alot of good advice and assistance in planning various trips from the owner Gonzalo Muñoz who I found very helpful and friendly. I also enjoyed the trek organised by Las Chullpas through the mountains on horseback and was even cured of a very bad stomach by a herbalist called Leonie who lives there which I had had for some time and could not cure with various medicines from the pharmacy.
The vegetarian food was excellent and all in all I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anybody. It is the perfect place to relax in beautiful surroundings after treking around the valley.
