  • Description


    We are a friendly and welcoming Anglo/Peruvian family living in the small town of San Ramon, in the beautiful valley of Chanchamayo. San Ramon is located approximately 8 hours inland from Lima - an easy bus journey during the day or overnight on a comfortable 'bus-cama'.

    We have two lovely daughters, aged 3 and 7, who are both at school and we enjoy sharing our home with friends and guests.

    We grow passion fruit on our farm where we are also building some tourist accomodation.

    We have recently opened a small coffee shop / bar in San Ramon.

  • Accommodation


    We have two private rooms - one of which is a double and the other a twin. This means that we can accommodate couples, friends or single travellers (two females or two males, sharing a room).

    The rooms have a shared toilet/bathroom with cold water shower (not usually a problem with our warm sunny climate year round!).

    We have Wifi, covering the house and the guest rooms and are very centrally located to all local amenities.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    San Ramon is a small, safe and very friendly town in the Chanchamayo valley, known for its beautiful scenery and waterfalls. It is a popular Peruvian holiday destination with good tourist facilities and great swimming pools.

    San Ramon is a great town in which to learn Spanish, relax or soak up the sun and local culture.

    Our guest rooms (which have WIFI) are independent of the main house, with their own lockable doors, a small seating area and a garden which we share with our Peruvian neighbours.

    Please do not worry if you cannot speak Spanish. We really want guests to enjoy their time with us, contributing in any way they can.
