Description from owner

Description

Chaskana Guesthouse is located in the rural community of Sencca, overlooking the city of Cusco and Sacsayhuaman archaelogical site (15 minutes in car from the Plaza de Armas of Cusco). The Guesthouse has views of Salkantay mountain to the west, and Ausangate mountain to the east, (and Cusco city), making for spectacular sunrise and sunsets and night light vistas. Sencca is on the way to the Sacred Valley of the Incas and Machu Picchu, and close to the Poroy train station where trains to Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu) depart. Chaskana Guesthouse provides a comfortable and enjoyable stay for those wishing to get out of the city and interact with local people, without being far away from city conveniences. A wood fireplace makes the home cozy and warm during those cold Andean nights. Smoking is permitted outside the guesthouse. Rates include WiFi, and a welcome pack including breakfast items and firewood. Parking is available on site.
