Fodor's Expert Review Villa Barranco
Ca. Carlos Zegarra 274, Lima, Lima, 04, Peru Fodor's Choice
Staying in this meticulously restored 1920s mansion on a quiet street near Barranco's malecón is a bit like staying with friends thanks to the laid-back atmosphere and helpful staff. The stately, two-story house is hemmed by gardens, with terraces, decks, and a tower from which to admire the surroundings. A second floor deck with a small bar has a lovely view of the Pacific framed by palm trees. Rooms have high ceilings and plenty of windows, with pine floors, antiques, and an eclectic mix of art. The best rooms have bright, spacious bathrooms with freestanding tubs. It's a short walk from the center of Barranco and most restaurants, but they'll fix you a meal if you prefer to stay in.
