La Casona De Yucay Hotel - Sacred Valley

Standard
 
Casona de Yucay offers 51 spacious, comfortable, and welcoming rooms to its guests: 37 standard rooms (singles, doubles, triples and quadruples), 12 superior rooms (singles and doubles) and 2 suites (king bed or family suite). As a matter of historical interest, room 36, on the 2nd floor, opening onto the patio of the original Casona, was used in 1825 by the Great Liberator, Simon Bolivar, who also announced several decrees from the balcony that faces the Plaza.
Hotel is located in the deepest part of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, at 2,700 meters above sea level, in the center of the small town of Yucay. The hotel is at a lower altitude than Cusco (3,300 m above sea level) and only one hour from the city, from where one is able to reach our town through two well-known tourist sites: Chinchero and Pisac. And it is only two hours from Machu Picchu. As noted, we are very close to the principal tourist attractions of this Incan Valley, including: Peru, the city of Cusco, the Sacred Valley of the Incas and the beautiful village of Yucay are all unforgettable sites that deserve a visit.
The majority of our rooms have wooden floors and plenty of window space offering panoramic views of the mountains and the hotel gardens, allowing our guests to enjoy the peace, tranquility and natural beauty of the countryside. The beautiful mansion is strategically located in the Sacred Valley of the Incas in Urubamba, near the Inca town of Ollantaytambo, the markets of Pisac and Chinchero, the salt mines of Maras, the Moray Arqueological Site and the Inca trail which leads to the ancient Incan city of Machu Picchu. Yucay was chosen as a place of solace and rest by the Incas, and was originally called Yucaybamba, later changed to Villa de yucay in the 18th Century. This valley is irrigated byt the Vilcanota or Willcamayu river, possesses great beauty, apart from being very fertile for agricultural activities. During Inca Pachacutec´s period it was an important production center of corn, fruit, grains and potatoes. In this valley we can find very ancient Inca constructions that belonged to the nobility and religious sectors, such as palaces of Sayri Tupac and Ñusta Inkarakay. The construction dates back to the year 1810 and belonged to Don Manuel de Orihuela, who received the Libertador Simón Bolívar as a guest in 1825. The Libertador Bolívar named him “Vista de la Renta de Alcabala” in 1825, and was awarded with a medal of “Padre Insigne de la Patria” in 1826. Later Don Manuel was named “Treasurer of the Mint of Cusco” by General Gamarra in 1830, and “Colonel of the Regiment” by Mariscal Ramón Castilla in 1847. This house, that today has been reconditiones and transformed into a comfortable Hotel, was restored some years ago by Doña Teresa Orihuela Vda. de De Bary.
