Casa Colibri is centrally located just outside Urubamba, close to all the archeological sites in the Sacred Valley. It s at a much lower altitude, (2900 mtrs) than Cuzco, (3400 mtrs) so it s perfect for your acclimatization. The casitas are sited around a large central garden with native trees, winding paths and scented pergolas.
The Lodge is our project in sustainable living. For us this means doing our best to conserve resources for future generations, avoiding waste and living in harmony with our environment. We have created a series of thriving organic kitchen and flower gardens hosting wildlife from hummingbirds and parrots to bees and butterflies!
Special interest groups are most welcome: yoga groups in particular enjoy our purpose-built meditation room. The tranquility and beauty of the gardens with their stunning mountain backdrop provide the perfect setting for relaxation. Food lovers and cooks find our organic gardens, outdoor kitchen and eating patios a delight, and enthusiastic gardeners never want to leave! Please contact us for customized group rates.
Thank you to our guests for their positive comments. Here is a few snippets:
"Polished, smart and new. Combining authentic Peruvian construction and western design simplicity with integrity, Barbara and Robert have set the foundation for a beautiful experience in the Sacred Valley. We stayed at the Casa Colibri Ecolodge with our two young teens - in a fabulous detached villa in a garden of unequalled variety and color. The focus on sustainability and community was a fabulous, fabulous thing. Unfortunately we did not spend enough time there and when we go back, we will skip Cuzco initially and acclimate at Casa Colibri. Fabulous, intimate spaces to lounge under the open sky with wifi and coffee to beg for...AWESOME Experience - THANK YOU!"

"Un endroit exceptionnel, idéalement situé pour explorer en profondeur la Vallée Sacrée des Incas, du plus célŤbre Machu Picchu aux quelques sites perdus et peu fréquentés... L ambiance rappelle la maison, surtout quand on revient de quelques jours de trek. Un Teddy Bear sur le lit, un jardin rempli de fleurs et de senteurs, un café préparé et torréfié par Robert, les poules, le respect constant de la Nature et les discussions enthousiastes sur les merveilles du Pérou, bref, on aurait jamais voulu partir... En toute simplicité et avec un énorme coeur, on nous ouvre la maison. Un seul conseil : Allez-y !"
