About Roberto Fumo

In a nutshell: Monica and I met in the Sacred Valley in the lovely village of “Arin” in 2009. I am a semi retired building contractor. Monica is a registered nurse and midwife. Shortly after we met, we decided to build a holistic center in the village ("The Source") which has since been passed on to a good friend of ours. We purchased our home in 2010. We then spent the next five years traveling between Peru, the US (my birth country) Spain (Monica’s birth country). In 2015, we were blessed with our Warrior Princess ‘Marina’. Since her birth we have decided to spend more time with the immediate family in Spain. As time and circumstances permit, we continue to journey back to Peru, our Home away from home.

Roberto Fumo purchased this house in 2010

Why Roberto Fumo chose Calca

Why did we buy this house? First, we fell in love with the Sacred Valley. We met and fell in love in “Arin”. When we decided to build our Holistic Center, and were gifted by the powers that be, the perfect space above the village and directly below the “Killaunu” waterfall. We knew this was home. We originally we’re renting our house. When the opportunity came to buy it, there was no hesitation. We love this village. We love the community. It's Family here. Home sweet home...!

La Vida Continua……

What makes this house unique

Peru, the land of Oz. Come and enjoy the magic of the Sacred Valley. The power of the Andes. The history and culture of the Inca Empire. Beauty and beyond.......

Magical.

  • 5 of 5

We walked in through the gated doors to discover a hidden magical world inside. The house was immaculate, well stocked and extremely convenient with its amenities. The Andes wraps its arms around you in this breathtaking location. Robert, the owner was fantastic in going over and above what we needed as was the home manager, Adam. I only wish we had had more time. Thank you!

A popular destination for tourists to going Machu Picchu and numerous sacred sites located in the Sacred Valley. The Valley is a lush green valley lying just 15 km north of Cusco. Used by the Inca people, the valley was a highly prized site due to its rich agricultural lands. Inca ruins are now dotted throughout the valley and the land has a very Peruvian feel thanks to the many authentic villages and towns that populate the region.

The valley’s rich history and culture make it one of our favourite places in Peru. It’s also a great place to acclimatize to the altitude in Cusco as the Sacred Valley is lower down and gives tourists the time they need for their bodies to adjust. So, if you’re thinking of visiting Peru, then the Sacred Valley should definitely be on your list of places to visit.

"Pisac" Market/Inca Ruins:

The town was constructed over an original Inca settlement. Located close to Cusco, Pisac offers up the top market in the region! Every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday are Market Days in the Plaza de Armas in the main town on the valley floor. Shop for handmade crafts: aplaca weavings, blankets, clothes, jewelry, pottery and more. Packed with local produce and a wide array of locally produced arts and crafts, Pisac Market is the perfect place for a little shopping.

The ruins, which are located just 20 minutes drive from the town itself, are of fantastic quality and well worth the visit.

"Ollantaytambo":

A Beautiful little town located on the far side of the Sacred Valley from Cusco. Lovely cobbled streets and quaint cafes make this a popular destination among tourists. The town is probably the best surviving example of Inca town planning. Be sure to stop at Hearts Cafe for a lovely coffee and snack and then visit the Chocolate Museum!

The Inca ruins located in Ollantaytambo are absolutely brilliant and provide some of the best stone work outside of Machu Picchu. Used as a royal residence by Emperor Pachacuti, the temple and fortress are of extremely high quality and should be on anyone list of places to visit in the valley.

As the starting point for trips to Machu Picchu (the train station is here), we will be happy to help you to arrange/organize your adventure to Machu Picchu. The train station is only 40 minutes from our home.

"Moray" and "Maras":

Without doubt, the Inca ruins of "Moray" are one of the most interesting and beautiful ruins in Peru. Designed like a dug-out amphitheater, scientists are still baffled as to what the site was actually used for. The latest theory is that the Inca people were using it as a sort of test laboratory for crops – who knows!

Located near the ruins of Moray is the town of "Maras". The town is famous for its local salt-evaporation ponds that have been in use since the Inca period. The salt deposited here would have been shipped out across the entire Inca nation.

"Chincheros":

Many people in the Peruvian hills still work in a similar way to their ancestors. Weaving is one of the most popular crafts in Peru and still practiced by many village people. The village of Chincheros in the Sacred Valley is a great place to give the craft a go yourself! Chincheros is one of many villages that have a weaving cooperative and allow visitors to try their hand at weaving.

"Huchuy Qosqo":

It means “Little Cusco.” In this archaeological complex are the vestiges of a citadel as important as Ollantaytambo and Pisac. It was Inca Wiracocha’s favorite estate from where he could continue to govern. One must walk almost half a day to reach Huchuy Qosqo, a place that looks like it was once a majestic Inca palace.

Let's add kayaking, horseback riding, nature walks, the "Killaunu" waterfall. Or just relaxing from our front porch to soak up the peace and tranquility in the shadow of the sacred peaks of the "Patusaray" right in front of you.

Our staff will be happy to arrange taxis to and from the Cusco airport/Cusco

Taxis to and from destinations you choose.

Taxi with driver for all day use.

Tour packages for Machu Picchu, and all other sacred sites.

And this is only the beginning. There're so much to do, so much to see in the sacred Valley.

Enjoy the journey...!
