Surrounded by the stunning Andes mountains, La Casona is a small luxury boutique hotel in the heart of Cusco.

Ollie and Kate B are here to help give you the inside track.

The suites are set around a tranquil courtyard in an immaculately restored old colonial manor house and each have been decorated with colonial Spanish antiques reflecting the city's mix of traditions and cultures.

Rented either as individual suites or as a private villa, La Casona is just a stone's throw away from the central plaza and a great place from which to visit the city.

Its open fire places and heated floors are welcome in a high altitude city where nights can get chilly, and during the day, food can be enjoyed al fresco on the dining terrace, and there are day beds set up around inner patios for relaxation and sunbathing.

The chef makes creative use of fresh local ingredients to serve delicious traditional meals and can also prepare gourmet picnics for excursions.

Why we love it

Now owned by the excellent Inkaterra group, the manor was built on Inca foundations and occupied by some of the first Spanish conquistadors.
