The family who own La Posada de Tigua insist to their guests "this is your house!". They have recently converted their 126-year-old home into a comfortable, welcoming guesthouse, while maintaining the working dairy farm and homely atmosphere which make the Posada so unique.
Guests are invited to discover the Hacienda, walking the trails with views of the surrounding mountains, meeting the animals, riding the friendly llamas Pepe and Paco, milking the cows and relaxing by the fireplace with a book and a glass of wine when the chilly evenings set in.
The family offer plenty of information about the region, the history, attractions and hiking routes, and can arrange guides and horses for guests who wish to explore further.

All water comes from a nearby spring, and can be drunk without the need for purification.
Organic kitchen waste is used for feeding the animals.
All of the dairy products used in the kitchen - milk, yogurt, cheese and butterscotch - are produced on the farm, as well as the vegetables.
Water used to clean the stables is recycled, irrigating the fields and naturally fertilizing them at the same time with the manure.
Sustainable, non-native eucalyptus wood is used on the stoves.
The Hacienda has a hydroelectric turbine which provides some of the electricity for the farm, as well as powering a mill, which local community members can use for free following the harvest. It also powers a machine to make bricks which are used on site and in the local community.
The original bathroom has a shower which is heated by alcohol.
All employees are from the surrounding indigenous communities.
The Hacienda owners can organise personalised volunteer placements in the communities, as well as on the farm.
They can also arrange trips to visit the shaman, and local schools.
