““Beyond Expectations””
Reviewed 22 January 2013 for a stay in October 2012

From the moment we arrived we knew we had found somewhere special. We stayed in the Valley for one week and were 100% happy with everything. From the minute we arrived until being dropped back off at airport at the end of our stay - everything was wonderful! To start things off we were courteously met at the airport and provided comfortable transportation to our rented cottage. We were served coca tea (for help with altitude) immediately after we arrived which was very nice. Our host also had great suggestions for local restaurants and tours which was a thoughtful way for us to start our vacation.

Our cottage was sparkling clean, spacious, and well decorated. It had all the amenities of home including down comforters, glasses, dishes and all cookware, which was 100% better than staying at a hotel. We also took advantage of the healthy breakfast and lunch which was specially prepared with such enthusiasm by the Managers. The care they put into every detail of our stay was beyond all expectations! The gatherings after tea time with delicious desserts, the warmth of the fireplace, and very clean and comfortable rooms wherever you went were beyond memorable. Everything was very modern with plenty of hot water and a full kitchen to prepare anything you wanted if you chose not to go out for the day. And the free internet was also a very special bonus.

Our cottage was in a very beautiful location and was quiet, secluded, and very relaxing. In the morning you could hear many birds singing and in the evening you could enjoy the orchestra of crickets off in the distance. The walk to the center of town was only about 15-20 minutes and was very quiet and peaceful with beautiful views as well. When you arrive there you can shop at a local market or many of the small shops that are there as well.

Many thanks go out to the Managers for the wonderful and relaxing days we spent at Valley & Life. We could not have made a better choice for our vacation. From the moment we arrived, we felt like old friends were waiting to greet us and constantly checked on us for our entire stay. We will always remember the inspiring view from our cottage through the window overlooking the mountains. It was spectacular!

It was a very nice stay in the Sacred Valley and I hope to repeat the experience many more times in the future. I will never tire of recommending this place to anyone who wants to relax and spend some time unwinding in this wonderful place.

Dearest Tatiana:
Our time with you was also for us "beyond expectations" too! We couldn't imagine that a beautiful friendship will start growing from this encounter, and we really hope next time have more extra time to share with you and your husband.
We are looking forward to have you again in our beautiful Sacred Valley and hope you can fulfill the promise of returning back.
We will keep on working to exceed the expectations of all our guests and to improve even more our standard
Have a wonderful year
Valley and Life Team

“The only peaceful, quiet place in Peru!”

We loved our stay at the Recolleta Cottage. We had a wonderful breakfast every morning. We lit a fire in the fireplace every night. We enjoyed reading on the back porch every evening. The cottage is in a compound with 8 other cottages. There are no barking dogs or roosters to wake you up....just quiet! We enjoyed Urubamba for an entire week with teenagers...studying Spanish, learning salsa and visiting all the nearby sites. The place was spotless, the service wonderful and the cook was the best in the world. We were over 7 weeks in Peru and teh Recolleta Cottage was the highlight!

“Wonderful spot in Urubamba”

We absolutely LOVED staying here!

The property is wonderful! It is much better than how it looks on pictures. It is spacious, cosy and allows for a great family experience. The location in Urubamba is unbeatable for those that want to cover most of the must-see places and also hit the unbeaten track.

The managers were not only kind and welcoming, but offered assistance on getting around, purchasing tickets and organizing tours. They gave us valuable tips on ways to save on trains and housing in Aguas Calientes.

We can't wait to come back!

“Unforgettable time in Sacred Valley”
Reviewed 10 March 2012 for a stay in May 2011

We had vacation in in May 2011 for five weeks based on sacred Valley Peru. Weather was mostly sunny, but very dry and hot during day and very cold at night. My two years old son and I stayed in Urubamba for 5 weeks and my husband, my sister; my parents came in turn and stayed 1-2 weeks. Urubamba was ideal place to travel to all the ruins in sacred valley and Machu Pichu, we also visited Cusco and Puno from there. Driving into the valley from Cusco was spectacular. Scenery was wonderful and unforgettable. House was located outside of Urubamba and we needed taxi every time we go out side of house and you can take motor cab back from town to make it cheaper, but it cost about 10 soles each way by taxi to town. But it was all worth it because house is located in beautiful location in Urubamba. You will feel all the energy of valley in there. House has beautiful garden and very clean and decorated tastefully. We felt very safe being there with 2 years old child.
One of the best things about our vacation was meeting the wonderful host; they are very friendly and very carely people. My son and I have special dietary need of gluten free vegetarian, but they were very helpful about our need where to get stuffs and eat as well. So we enjoyed every food we tried. They answered every request by us made our stay so special. They booked our hotels and transportation when we went out the town. They knew so much about the area and made sure we are comfortable and safe all the time with small child. 
I will recommend their service to anyone and if we have a chance to go back, we will use their service again.

“The best option in the Sacred Valley !!!”
Reviewed 28 February 2012 for a stay in October 2011

I work in the Sacred Valley and my family came to visit me for a week. I didn’t know about this service of vacation rentals here in the valley, as all around you find mostly hotels.
... I looked through the internet for other alternatives and found them.
From day one the managers were so great, they provided all the information I asked about the house.

We are a total of 5 people in my family, two adults and three children 11, 9 and 8 years...
The house is just great, and lacks nothing at all, is complete they told me the owners made it with all their love, watching the small details… and today we can enjoy such a beautiful house for an affordable price...
The house itself is super comfortable, has 2 bathrooms, one with tub and one with shower, a room in suite and a Mezzanine where the other rooms are, of course the little ones loved this independence!. The living room and kitchen are all integrated in a whole area, which makes the whole family to enjoy if someone is cooking, as he can share with those who are in the dinning or living room...There is nothing we lacked or missed, the equipment in the house is complete, it comes with feather comforts that warm up by night, blankets, towels, Satellite TV, DVD, films, wine glasses, can opener, corkscrew, etc., it has just all...
We had wonderful nights under the warm of the chimney sharing with my kids, moments we commonly can`t share in the big city. Also I forgot to say, the house even has a small swimming pool for the children!

If you want to cook during the days you can have everything waiting for you, as they can provide catering service, they can buy what you prefer to prepare during the days you will be staying. I suggest asking for this service as sometimes is hard to find all the things in Urubamba... especially if you travel with kids. They buy most things organic and homemade products, they can add other supplies such as butter, juice, bread, bacon, eggs, coffee and others like those.

The administrators are people of service and do everything with delight and joy, if you want them they can also tailor some of the tours you normally book in other places, only that they provide personalized service... private tours in your own private car; either you can go to Ollantaytambo, Pisac, Chincheros, Maras, which I recommend only to visit one per day, especially if you travel with small kids.
In the valley there is also an acceptable range of restaurants to try the great Peruvian dishes. In the end, this place is a fabulous destination for vacations; there are many things to do! But, you should consider saving at least a minimum stay of 5 days not to rush around.
Another important tip is that the Valley is in the center of everything, near to all mayor spots to visit…. All the four cardinal points have something to do or see: Ollantaytambo and, Machu Picchu, Chinchero, Pisac, and after acclimatization of several days in the Valley, you can go a few days in Cusco before your return back to Lima, this is ideal for your health and pocket.
If you're traveling for a few days to the Sacred Valley, couple, group or family this is the best choice without a doubt...Valley and Life offered us the best option to have a great stay!
We will come back soon!
Thank you Guys!
