About this campspace #s000154

Our lovely Camp space is based in Curahuasi, a small but charming town in the middle of the Andes mountain range, 125 km away from Cuzco and the famous Macchu Pichu. Thanks to its unique location, it offers magnificent views on the mountains cape and it benefits from a very pleasant micro climate.

The much feared Peruvian rainy season barely has its effect in daytime, since most of the rain only falls during the night. In the main building, bathrooms and hot showers are at your disposal 24/7.

A number of facilities are at your disposal during your stay on our grounds: A barbecue spot and garden crib, a chill out zone with hammocks, volleyball and football field, a shop with basic amenities, laundry service. The animals on the ‘hacienda’ (= farm) have all the space they need and receive food from our own fields. Fresh vegetables are grown ecologically in the garden and the fruit trees are in full growth. A catered breakfast with homemade products is served to early birds as well as to people who like to sleep in. Next to lodging, we also offer tours. From hiking to horseback riding, from quiet boating trips to real adrenaline boosts, from day trips to fully catered overnight camping trips. We are also happy to help with organising your free walks in the beautiful surroundings of Curahuasi. Today, this is already the starting point of trips to Choquequirao and the Salkantay Mountain and a 20-minute drive will get you to the hot springs of Cconoc.

By staying with us you support a local NGO which provides educational projects for children. Every morning the project works with kids with special educational needs and every afternoon with toddlers from underprivileged families. You can visit or help out at the project. As stopover or as home base, our camp space and Curahuasi will definitely charm you!

Meet Stefanie, your host

Stefanie Van Erps studied to become a primary school teacher at the Erasmus University College in Jette, Belgium. She has been teaching since January 2007, mainly in special primary education for children with speech and language problems and children with autistic spectrum disorder. She combined work and study in 2009 and obtained an additional Bachelor’s degree in Special Education. After a couple of years working in Belgium, Stefanie decided to go and teach abroad. She followed a postgraduate course on North-South Relations and Development Cooperation in Kortrijk. Afterwards, she went to Peru to work in a school project named Urpi Sonqocha located in Cusco. That is where she met Gilder Anaya Delgado, her future husband. She discovered the town of Curahuasi, south of Machu Picchu, where the project, camping and B&B are located.

Gilder was a raft guide for 10 years in Cusco, Peru and for 4 summers in Norway until he moved back to his home town Curahuasi in 2012 to settle down and start a family. He was always highly respected for his professionalism, techniques and responsibility.
The last 5 years he has been dedicating his time starting up and building out the tourist service Casa Lena together with Stefanie.
