This hotel, settled just before the village of Vilcabamba, is a mini-paradise...
Rooms are clean (except the ones at the bottom of the property) and very well designed.
12 USD (without taxes) per person per day, included breakfast and dinner (very veryyyyy tasty !!) and 1/2 an hour of jacusi ...
We really enjoyed this place, met very nice people and didn't see the days going by....

Cet hotel, situe juste avant le village de Vilcabamba, est un mini-paradis. Les chambres sont propres (sauf celles du bas de la propriete) et bien etudiees.
Elles vous en couteront 12 USD par jour par personne (hors taxes), incluant le petit-dej' et le diner (tres tres bon et sans limite !) plus 1/2 heure de jacusi par jour. Nous, on a vraiment aime, on a rencontre des gens cools et on n'a pas vu le temps passer !
