Casa Hacienda San Juan is a working ranch and dairy farm welcoming guests in the fertile mountain valleys of remote Andean Peru.

The Hacienda San Juan de Pillo is a Spanish colonial ranch close to the town of Pampas, reached via the scenic Mantaro Gorge but only accessible by 4WD. It’s a unique place to stay, and you can really feel a part of the life of the working farm, as well as participate in leisure activities such as horse riding, cycling and forest walks.

In common with other properties in this area of rich pasture, the welcoming ranch hosts a dairy farm and stables. There are many heavily tiled outbuildings surrounding the property’s own white-washed baroque church. Light floods in through floor to ceiling windows on to the ample lounges, stuffed with plump sofas, and the restaurant. A bar and log fire give the place a cosy feel on chilly nights.

There are 22 guest rooms including some dormitories with bunk beds. All have private facilities.
