The hotel is a former hacienda in the Andean foothills dating back to 1557 making it one of the oldest dwellings in the counrty. Its first owner, Don Juan Pendones, was one of the original conquistadors, and the estate has since been in the possession of several noble families. The current owner, Arturo, is a font of knowledge about the house and its history, and a guided tour of the hacienda's museum containing clothing, armour, books and other artefacts, is included as part of your stay, with Arturo often conducting tours himself. Throughout the property there are original artworks and features such as intricately painted ceilings, wooden doors and shutters, that emphasise the building's heritage.  

Rooms are simply furnished and incorporate antique furniture and paintings giving them a homely feel. They vary in size providing accommodation for single travellers, couples and families. 2 rooms have a shared bathroom and the others are all en-suite. All rooms have heaters and electric blankets are provided to keep you warm and cosy. The hacienda serves breakfast every morning, and dinner is available in the evening. Much of the dairy produce comes from the farm and other ingredients are locally sourced. There's a comfy lounge, and coutyards where you can make yourself at home.

You can walk through the gardens, go for longer rambles and hikes in the surrounding area to see interesting rock formations and get views across the valley. The historical city of Potosi with its fine churches and colonial architecture, as well as the notorious silver mines, is just a half hour drive away.
