The Green House Bed & Breakfast
Nestled in a small farming community in the heart of the Sacred Valley, The Green House Bed & Breakfast is an exceptionally homey and enchanting place full of peace and beauty.
Opened in May 2008, it was painstakingly designed and built by its owners, Gabriel from Argentina and Bryan from the UK, with local natural materials such as adobe, stone, mud, natural paint dyes and eucalyptus wood.
Bordered by a gurgling stream and surrounded by breathtaking mountain scenery, it is an inspiring starting point for exploration and adventure activities as well as an ideal retreat for simply relaxing.
Gabriel, Bryan and their three dogs all live on site and are great hosts, catering to each guest's individual needs and offering a wealth of tourist advice. Even Laika the dog serves as a friendly guide to a nearby waterfall.
There are four cozy guest rooms in all, decorated in warm colors and adorned with local handicrafts and photos. The dining and lounge area, with its high ceilings and full-length windows, affords stunning mountain views and contains a fireplace, sofas, books and games.
There is also a TV room with a large DVD collection and cable channels. Outdoors there is a verdant expanse of lawn bordered by brilliant flowerbeds visited by hummingbirds and butterflies in addition to a quiet area out back by the stream.
The hotel is located in the small agricultural community of Huarán, which lies in the heart of the Sacred Valley less than 6 miles from Calca. It's a mere five-minute walk from the bus stop and shop along the main road running through the valley and is a one-hour drive from Cuzco, less than 7 miles from Urubamba and 16 miles from Pisac.
There are opportunities for local treks departing from the hotel to places like the waterfall of Arin, the traditional community of Cancha Cancha and the Yanacocha lagoon.
Food & Beverage
A complimentary breakfast is served each morning and includes coffee and teas brewed in a French press, fresh fruit salad, orange juice, homemade organic marmalades, bread, butter and eggs. Complimentary tea and herbal infusions are available throughout the day.
The on-site restaurant offers three-course dinners featuring both international and local cuisine prepared with local products and organic vegetables from the hotel's own kitchen garden. Menus are tailored to guests' requirements and vegetarian meals are among their specialties.
