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 “barrio” a lively 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 go down to Playa Pescadores with its fish market, its popular restaurants, its fishers boats, boat tours and pelicans, or to Playa Agua Dulce to walk, run or rest on the beach and to swim in the summer.
You may walk to the Herradura beach, popular with surfers and for its restaurants,
You can discover in mototaxi the Huge Cross which dominates Lima and from where you will enjoy a panoramic view of the entire Bay and out to La Punta and the Isle of San Lorenzo,
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...
Our place and activities around are adapted to family groups, sports lovers and social oriented persons. However, if you wish to discover the nightlife of Lima, Barranco (the “bohemian” district known for its cafés, bars and art galleries) is just 5 minutes away by car. There are secure taxis to go out at night.

I am actually still at Fransica's place as I am writing this review. That should tell you something, if anything. I originally wanted the other room with the queen and twin, but it was booked for one night during my planned stay. When I got to the house, Fransica told me she arranged it so I could take the room I wanted. This is why she's is a Superhost. She is very attentive, responsive, so helpful and knowledgeable of Peru in general. The house is very clean, secure and comfortable. You cannot go wrong with staying here with Fransica, no matter how many nights you stay. She will try and convince you not to stay if you only need one night. Do not listen... Come stay at the southern edge of Lima. You will not be disappointed with the place and the host! Highly recommended and will stay here again.
We loved staying here! Caterina, Franciscas friend was taking care of the home while Francisca was abroad. However, they were both very very helpful! Francisca responded promptly to all of my questions before we arrived and was very informative. Caterina was very friendly and accommodating, and called a taxi for us whenever we needed. She also gave us recommendations for places to go. I would definitely stay there again. There is a hot shower, clean towels provided, comfortable beds and wifi! Thank you Francisca and Caterina!
Très agréable moment chez Françoise. La maison est spacieuse, très propre, eau chaude, lits confortables et Françoise vous donne tout ce dont vous avez besoin dont de bons conseils sur les visites et une discussion très agréable. Nous avons été très contentes de faire sa connaissance et y retournerions sans hésiter. Merci pour tout Françoise !
Tuvimos un hospedaje muy bueno con francisca. Todo estaba tal cual el anuncio y su hospitalidadfue excelente.
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!!
