Self-catering casita, (cottage) within the lovely gardens of Casa Colibri eco-Lodge.
The Lodge has a keen interest in sustainable living. It has a series of thriving organic kitchen and flower gardens encouraging wildlife from hummingbirds and parrots to bees and butterflies!
Well placed to use as a base from which to explore the sites around the Sacred Valley, 5 mins from Urubamba, and 20 minutes from the trains to Machu Picchu, Cusco, Perú.
It has a twin bedroom, sitting area with a loft for extra sleeping space, breakfast kitchenette, shower room & toilet, outdoor kitchen. It opens out onto its own covered patio, as well as the beautiful gardens, brimming with local wildlife. (There is a bird hide 20 mtrs from the Casita!)
Housekeeping is included. No extra charge for cleaning.
You are welcome to use the facilities of the ecolodge: the beautiful yoga studio, clubhouse & wifi. If you are a garden lover and interested in sustainable living you're coming to the right place !
Home-made organic meals are available, but please let us know in advance.
A welcome breakfast pack is included in your stay: fresh fruit, warm bread...
There's parking available for 1 car and wifi in the nearby gardens or in the clubhouse about 50 mtrs from the casita.
There is a small grocery shop about 50 mtrs from the Lodge. The town of Urubamba is 5 mins by car, with a local market, pharmacies, small shops, restaurants, a gas station, etc. Taxis are cheap and you're in most places and sites around the valley in inside 30 mins. The station for the trains to Machu Picchu in Ollantaytambo is 20 mins away.

There's plenty to do around the beautiful Sacred Valley, from horse-riding and rafting in the Urubamba river to visiting the archeological sites of Macchu Pichu and Pisac, or visiting one of the local spas. There's also plenty of local hikes to do, with a guide or on your own.
Help and advice on these and any other general info can be given by my (lovely! :)) parents who run the Lodge.
Help and advice on treks and local info can be given at the Lodge, alway happy to help.
Definitely worth spending some time in the valley and not just rushing through it on your way to Machu Picchu.
A beautiful, peaceful retreat where you can get in touch with nature, recharge your batteries, and soak up a beautiful corner of Perù.
