  • Description


    My name is Teresa and I am a school teacher. 10 years ago I arrived at the Sacred Valley and found the most beautiful place on the planet where I decided to build an ecolodge in harmony with nature to preserve the landscape and the ecosystem. About six months ago we started building a kindergarten in the property where we'll be teaching in harmony with the Waldorf pedagogy.
