La Mansion Casa
La Mansion Casa is a typical mid-range hotel in the Andean town Andahuaylas with simple guest rooms and a cafeteria.
Established in 2012, this is a modern hotel which genuflects to Peru’s colonial style with white-washed walls, little balconies and tiled roofs, comprising a building set in a flowery garden with a sunny aspect. Polished wood and gleaming tiles add to the bright and cheery ambiance.
The guest rooms are compact, neat and light but the fabrics rather chinzy reflecting traditional Peruvian taste – don’t be surprised if you find some towel art on your bed! The public areas are more modern with bold colours and glass table tops, and other decorations refer to aspects of Peruvian culture.
The basic comforts – heating and private bathroom with hot shower – are present, as is a laundry service, parking and cafeteria, and complimentary Wifi is available.
What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
It was memorable because of the cultural and geographical variety so can't pick out particular part. We were in 3 different climates, in mountains, jungle and coast. Probably enjoyed the places where we had most interactions with nature i.e. Lake Titicaca and jungle.SL,
"Obviously Machu Pichu was a highlight but Ollaytaytambo was impressive, Chinchero was lovely and Cusco was fantastic [we're looking into buying a house there!] the Vistadome, particularly with the staff on the return journey to Cusco, who put on a fashion show, music and dancing for us, which they genuinely seemed to enjoy too, was fantastic. I'd also really recommend Huaco Pacllano in Lima - I'd never seen a site like it before."SAG, Hythe
Machu Picchu was the most memorable part of the trip. The rain forest was fun. We loved the Andean Express train journey too.MdlATS, London

It was all good and every location was special so cannot choose one in particular.BC, Beckenham
For me, I think that it was the Lords of Sipan and Royal Tombs Museum, and the Temple of the Moon at Trujillo. For Angela, it was Tucume and the Temple of the Moon.PS, Reading

Peru is one of those countries that becomes memorable on so many levels. Each place I visited made my heart miss a beat I simply loved it all( I also loved my visit to the taquile and eat with the local people, the food was amazing and people simply beautiful.)DC, London
I really liked variety on this trip - amazing culture, history, nature all in one trip. Machu Picchu tour was great, excursions in rainforest were very memorable.
The Peru holiday was all very well constructed. Favourite parts were the floating islands, the nocturnal canoe trip and the trek to Macchu Picchu. Organisation was brilliant and it all hung together very well. Thanks!AMW, Letchworth
“It is great to know that you are going to have a fantastic holiday every time you travel to Peru.JL, Cobham
"The aim was always to get to Machu Pichu and we did it in style all the way. MP was everything we expected. Cusco, Sacred Valley and Machu Pichu hotel all fab as was the Hiram Bingham train ride back to Cusco."JE, London
"All of it was memorable in different ways as the culture is so different. We found the Peruvian people helpful and cheerful. We enjoyed Arequipa, the Colca Canyon and Lake Titicaca, along with all of the trips and transfers."GH, Keighley
Seeing the Condor being released back into the wild.JA, Glasgow
Highlight?: Seeing Machu Picchu for the first time, it literally took my breather away, Ineven had tears in my eyes it is so stunning.CE, Rickmansworth
Highlights?: Maccu Picchu and the trains to and from the Sacred Valley, also the hotels in Cusco and the Sacred valley.AJ, London
"The people, mixing with the Peruvian people in the markets, talking and laughing with them."JL, Cobham
Highlight?: The train journey to M Picchu and seeing M Picchu - absolutely awesome and I got a seat on the left of the train (for best views!). The tour of the Salt Flats and journey to San Pedro were stunning too. Really good tour guide during this part. Hannah at JLA was a great help before and during the holiday. She made it possible to visit on the desired dates (e.g. so I could go on a star gazing tour in San Pedro during a change in mood cycle). Always replied promptly to my emails. Especially appreciated little extras - e.g. being on the left of the train to M. Picchu for the best views, being allocated window seats on planes, etc. All this meant I could really enjoy the scenary. Stand out hotels were in Urubamba, M. Picchu, and Uyuni - all exceeding my expectations. I didn't realise so many lunches / dinners were included which was a great bonus.MP, Amersham

Highlight: Reaching the sun gate mid/late afternoon to see Machu Picchu bathed in sunshine.RK, Worcester
"It is difficult to pick out just one experience from such a plethora of new ones. There was so much to see and absorb in Peru which was fascinating, but Machu Picchu must rate very highly in our list of memorable events on the mainland as must the whole Colca Canyon experience including the drives through the Highlands to Chivay."ND,
