CHORRILLOS TWO BLOCKS FROM THE OCEAN
French - English - Spanish
Hello and welcome home.
Take the time to discover Chorrillos and enjoy a completely different experience during your stay in Lima !
We are a belgo-peruvian family.
Our house was built in the end of the 19th century and has been completely renovated in 2007. It is located two blocks away from the Pacific Ocean, in the heart of the old part of Chorrillos, in the South end of the Bay of Lima, next to the district of Barranco, 15 minutes away from Miraflores and 25 minutes from the center of Lima. It is of easy access from the airport of Lima/Callao by the coast expressway.
Transports nearby : mototaxis, buses, taxis, Metropolitan express bus. Banks, stores, markets at walking distance or with mototaxis.
At your arrival, the house will permit you to rest from your trip, discover the new environment and organize your journey through Peru in the best conditions.
Our neighbourhood is a living contrast between popular and prosperous spaces. The mototaxis, the processions and their joyful people give to the “(email hidden)ly ambiance and animation.
This district has a better climate for being well protected from the winds.
Some blocks away from our place,
You will find good restaurants as The Hornero (meat), Sonia, Morocho, Punta Arenas, Nautika (fish), Vara (international, peruvian), Inguiri (jungle specialties),
You will enjoy an animated and colourful market,

You may visit the Planetarium on the Morro Solar Hill,
and visit a little further away the Pantanos of Villa Reserve for birds lovers.
If you wish, we can guide you on tours of the city (Miraflores, Barranco, historical Lima...), excursions to the Isle of San Lorenzo (boat tours with sealions), La Punta... and propose you sports activities as horseback riding on the beach and/or dunes in Lurin, 30 minutes away from our place (our specialty !), surf, bicycling and paragliding.
We will provide you help with all the questions you might have about your trip : tips, transports, reservations, itineraries in French, English and Spanish...

Séjour merveilleux chez Françoise. La maison est magnifique, la chambre très propre, claire et spacieuse. J'ai pu apprécier de prendre mon pt déjeuner sur 1 magnifique terrasse. Mais mon séjour aurait été différent sans la gentille de Françoise. Jamais je n'aurais imaginé 1 hôte si à l'écoute et attentionnée. Françoise à été aux petits soins avec moi, n'a jamais hésité à prendre de son temps pour me faire découvrir le quartier, me donner des indications, des conseils, imprimer ma carte embarquement, appeler 1 taxi, etc etc. Je me suis sentie comme à la maison...au Pérou.1 véritable partage! Merci Françoise!!
Francisca was really kind and helpfully. Thank you again.
Hope we see us again on my way back.
Francisca's home is absolutely beautiful and the guest rooms on the top floor receive lots of air and sun. We were able to do laundry, make our own breakfasts and enjoy the new years eve fireworks from the rooftop balcony. Situated close to the Chorillos beach area, the neighborhood is rough around the edges but has a few good restaurants. Cab fare was rather steep from the airport, but Francisca was able to arrange a neighbor gentleman cab driver to pick us up upon arrival. The only negative experience was when a neighbor's dog bit my leg causing a puncture wound and locals terrorized us yelling, "gringo, gringo!" as we walked their streets. Stories of daylight muggings are not unheard of, especially in the neighborhood itself off the main drag or near the beach to the west. Caution and pepper spray is advised!
