La Casa de Barro Lodge & Restaurant
The Casa de Barro Lodge is a charming country guest house in the Urubamba Valley. Owners Luisa and Antonio have made every effort to make their rustic accommodations (and home) as welcoming and comfortable as possible. The entire house has hardwood floors and thick adobe walls adorned with Andean art. The property strives to be ecologically friendly by using local construction materials and creating as little waste as possible in its daily operations.
Exuding a serene rural feel, the eleven air-conditioned and heated guest rooms come with wooden floors, work desks and fully tiled private baths with tub/shower combo. Opening windows flood the rooms with natural light and offer views of the gardens and out over the mountains and valley. The property features a lovely common area with sofas, a fireplace, a reading area, and a living area with television and DVD player.
Children can enjoy the play area in the green gardens of the lodge's grounds. Activities that can be arranged on site include horse riding, hiking, and paragliding, and local tours and car rentals can be booked through the property as well. Casa de Barro keeps an oxygen tank on hand for those who might be adversely affected by the altitude.
The small town of Chinchero is situated 17 miles from the city of Cuzco, and makes an ideal place to explore the Urubamba Valley. The local archaeological Inca site is a short hike away and the area offers a variety of paths to hike or mountain bike on.
Food & Beverage
The lodge's restaurant serves an American breakfast every morning. Featuring an innovative Andean-Mediterranean fusion cuisine, the restaurant also offers lunch and dinner. All meals can be enjoyed indoors or on the outdoor terrace which offers scenic valley views.
Careful consideration is given to vegetarian and special dietary needs. Picnic lunches can be packed upon request.
How To Get There
Coming from Cuzco, take highway 3 west and then follow signs north to Chinchero. As you enter town, the lodge will be well signposted on the right-hand side.
