The SpaceA typical 100 years old building made out of traditional mud bricks, surrounded by beautiful hills, green fields, and a lovely private flower and bird garden that overflow with peace, charm and ambiance.
Located 500m from Baños del Inca main square, and a 10-15 minutes drive from Cajamarca's Plaza de Armas (10-15PEN for taxi ride).
Don Simon's Farmhouse is ideal for couples, small groups of friends, nature lovers, hikers and people who enjoy peace and goodness of country living.
We offer 2 rooms, each one with its own wood-burning stove and private bathroom with plenty of hot water.
Every day breakfast is included in the price and we also provide you with the complementary basic salt/pepper/sugar and drinking water (our glass bottled water comes directly from our rain water collecting system , however we supply with boiled water in glass bottles for those who prefer not to drink Cajamarca's rain water).

There is 1 other suit in the main house that is available for rent when the owners are away at Christmas and in the summer holidays (June-July).

Interaction with GuestsWe find people's company lovely and of course every guest is for us an opportunity to share and enjoy, so we would always be honoured to delight in their stories. But we also appreciate those who seek peace and might desire total privacy and isolation, therefore, we leave the door open to our guest if they happen to decide to join us for our tea and biscuits time, or for a picnic lunch, or for dinner under the constellations with a fire and candles, or for camping expeditions, or for our weekend walks/horse riding to our secret non spoiled places hidden in the hills around Cajamarca.
