Lima’s Barranco neighbourhood is the epitome of boho chic. Cutting-edge galleries stand beside cool bars and quirky corners housing everything from vegetarian pizza parlours to the beautiful, wooden Bridge of Sighs. In the early 20th century, this Pacific-side district was where the wealthy upper class spent their summers, and while it fell into decline a few decades later, many of Barranco’s decayed Belle Époque mansions have now been given a new lease of life. Every twist and turn along the cobbled streets reveals another colourful building, lovingly restored to take on a 21st-century dimension.
Casa Nuestra is a charming property, revamped by its owners, that occupies the second and third levels of a sunflower-yellow house on the Miraflores side of the neighbourhood. The vibe is laid-back, and despite the boho guesthouse tag, prices remain on the economical side.
