About
In 2011 we started a small organic farm. We produce many of our own vegetables, quinua and potatoes. Our farm is worked without agrochemicals or synthetic fertilizers, using many traditional techniques (plowing with oxen, rotating crops and biological controllers for pests & disease). A traditional Incan meal cooked on hot rocks, the Pachamanca Lunch includes a tour of our hotel, farm, Cañazo distillery and coffee roastery. Lunch includes chicken, pork, and lamb, potatoes, organic vegetables and salad, and chicha morada. It is served at covered picnic tables with views of the mountains, glaciers and archeological sites. We accommodate most dietary restrictions. For guests not staying with us, we ask for a 100% deposit in advance. Cancellations or modifications must be made before 2 pm the day prior to the reservation, otherwise we charge the full amount of the deposit as a cancellation fee. Daily at 12 PM & 2:30 PM; $67USD (Adult), $40USD (Child); total duration: approx. 2 hours.

    A Sacred Valley highlight & one of our best meals!
    The Pachamanca lunch was incredibly delicious and the entire experience was highly worthwhile. What a deal! The cooking style under hot stones was demonstrated and explained; as our food cooked we got a tour of the farm. We were served large quantities of chicken, pork and lamb; a beautiful salad; fava beans, sweet potato and potato, with wonderful sauces on the side. Beverages and dessert too. Then we enjoyed detailed tours of the coffee roasting facility and distillery. It was so fun assembling our own custom alcoholic beverage and personalized coffee roast, both beautifully and smartly packaged to take home. The best was the energy, passion and dedication of the staff. They made us fans of the El Albergue model.

    Great meal and great hosts
    This was a highlight of our trip to Peru. A very great place to stay, as well as the meal that was served for this experience was top notch. Got a chance to see guinea pigs (in their pens) and was able to learn about the local customs for celebrations. The meal took place at shaded picnic tables. Far more than one could eat. The hosts of the tour and of the cooking were very gracious and enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge.

    Amazing Pachamanca Experience.
    We booked a Pachamanca experience at El Albergue Farm and it was amazing. The guide we had was very informative, the food was outstanding and the farm and the view just made it a completely memorable experience. Would highly recommend this as a "thing to do" while in the Sacred Valley

The day was perfect! Blue skies and fresh air. We got the history and explanation of Pachamanca, observed how it’s cooked, and enjoyed a scrumptious meal at the end. Definitely amazing!

Nestled in the mountains and beautiful piece of land. It is great to see how they grow naturally and sustainably and give back to the community. The food was delicious and more than we could eat.

This was a great stop after Ollantaytambo Preserve. The style of cooking in the ground was fascinating and produced a delicious meal!

Amazing accomodations and food at the El Albergue hotel located inside the train station at Ollantayabo. It's like your own private farm to table getaway. They roast their own coffee and brew their own brand of liquors. If you like food your in heaven. Great food on site, in the town square and anywhere in Peru.

Rooms are warm, clean and cozy with all the features you need. Including WiFi! The staff are out of their way friendly and amazing.

I couldn't recommend a better place to call your "Home Base" while exploring the Machu Picchu area.
