    Description

    Our guest house on the outskirts of the town of Pisac, in the Sacred Valley of the Incas (Cusco - Peru) provides a safe, clean and welcoming space to live consciously in community, between the energy of the mountains and the tranquility of the countryside. We are a family of 3 women (mom and daughters) collectively raising a 2-year-old boy. We decided to move from Lima and return to the land of our ancestors to connect with our roots, nature, and work on caring for ourselves and others. More than a lodging, we think of ourselves as a house that seeks to resonate with people who are working not only spiritually but also collectively and daily. Because we are in that work and we believe that it is one of the necessary bases to make this world a better place, conscious and present care.


    Nuestra casa de huéspedes a las afueras del pueblo de Pisac, en el Valle Sagrado de los Incas (Cusco - Perú) brinda un espacio seguro, limpio y acogedor para vivir conscientemente en comunidad, entre la energía de las montañas y la tranquilidad del campo.

    Somos una familia de 3 mujeres (mamá e hijas) en crianza colectiva de un nene de 2 años. Decidimos mudarnos de Lima y volver a la tierra de nuestros ancestros para conectar con nuestras raíces, la naturaleza, y trabajar en el cuidado, tanto de nosotras mismas como el de otr@s.

    Más que un hospedaje nos pensamos como una casa que busca resonar con personas que estén trabajando no solo lo espiritual sino también lo colectivo y lo cotidiano. Porque en ese trabajo andamos y creemos que es una de las bases necesarias para hacer de este mundo un lugar mejor, el cuidado consciente y presente.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Pisac is a small, unique and magical town, which brings together a great spiritual and artistic community of people from all over the world. We are 3 minutes by motorcycle taxi or 15 minutes walking from the town, in a privileged area due to its location called "La Rinconada". We decided to open the doors of our house - at the foot of the sacred mountain "Intihuatana" - so that more people can experience the transformative energy of this territory, which connects you with the force of the earth and the Andean values of living in community and harmony with nature. Mama Hummingbird (Clori) speaks Quechua, the native and main language of the Incas. Katia and Erika (daughters) speak Spanish and English. We are very open to exchanging knowledge (language, traditions and other knowledge) and learning about other cultures.


    Pisac es un pueblo pequeño, único y mágico, que reúne una gran comunidad espiritual y artística de personas de todas partes del mundo. Nos encontramos a 3 minutos en mototaxi o 15 minutos caminando del pueblo, en una zona privilegiada por su ubicación llamada "La Rinconada".

    Decidimos abrir las puertas de nuestra casa - a los pies de la montaña sagrada "Intihuatana" - para que más personas puedan vivir la energía transformadora de este territorio, que te conecta con la fuerza de la tierra y los valores andinos de vivir en comunidad y armonía con la naturaleza.

    Mamá Colibrí (Clori) habla español y quechua, lengua nativa y principal de los Incas. Katia y Erika (hijas) hablan español e inglés. Estamos muy abiertas a intercambiar conocimientos (de idioma, tradiciones y otros saberes) y conocer sobre otras culturas.
