There are a handful of authentic boutique hotels in Peru that are all about history, local culture and gastronomic experiences, of which ancient republican country house, Palacio Manco Capac, is our pick of the crop.

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

With just five thoughtfully decorated rooms, guests are guaranteed a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with the utmost service and attention to detail. Each room features a private patio and will have a great view, whether it's the hillside, Inca walls or the interior gardens and eucalyptus forest.

If you have yet to experience Peruvian cuisine, you're bound to be blown away by the intense flavours here, and if you have, the added creativity of the dishes will surprise. The chef at Palacio Manco Capac works with as many local organic ingredients as he can get his hands on and the outcome is beautifully presented Peruvian masterpieces with hints of international influences. The restaurant itself is a laid back affair and feels more like someone's home.

You don't have to venture much beyond the property to see remains of Inca ruins and Cusco main square is a mere 10 minutes away so the location of this boutique hotel is indisputably a great base for your Peruvian adventure.
