CASA VERDE, is an ecological and self-sustaining project, characterized not only by the use of mud bricks, -legendary construction material in the area-, but by using of photo-voltaic energy. We have 96 solar panels, 24 deep charging batteries and three voltage converters that, altogether, have the capacity to produce electric power of up to 9.6 KW/hour

Our large capacity to produce energy allows us to self-sustain the total demand required by the cooling equipment, water pumps and lighting generated through 300 - 2 W LED light bulbs, each one installed in the different environments that have been already built.

Also, our total water demand is supplied by a 40m deep tubular well and by means of two  three thousand liter biodigesters.  We treat waste water and make it into high performance compost called "Biol"

Our effort to protect the environment is also reflected in our planting over 500 trees, 100 fruit trees, forage and extensive green areas,

HOW WAS CASA VERDE BORN

As any important idea, the project came out of "a dream".  A dream that was born some 25 years ago when, with no money but lots of enthusiasm, with imagination and passion, we drafted the idea of developing a lodging and recreation project.  Very small at the beginning it then grew as a result of those things that sometimes come up in life.  Our idea was to spend our final years avoiding the misery of old age and contributing to our Community a project that, no matter how you saw it, sounded interesting and novel in the middle of the coast of Lima.  It was developed as a place to enjoy healthy rest and entertainment.  We wanted it to send a clear message that, in any human activity, one can always seek ways to offset, in a significant manner, the negative impact of urban environment.

It is so that in 2001, we bought this bare land in Rinconada de Mala, Cañete; not a flower to adorn it.  And then, in 2010, we started building the first stage comprised of eight rooms, and started operating in January 2013; we now have many satisfied guests in love with the place. Dreams do come true if we have the courage to pursue them!

THE PROJECT

Casa Verde, is an eco country hotel built on a 2.3 hectare field, nestled in a beautiful agricultural valley, surrounded by a chain of hills, high and panoramic view of a wide natural landscape.  The site is only a few minutes drive away from Asia Boulevard and the crowded neighboring beaches; it is also near the so picturesque villages of Calango, La Capilla and Azpitia

The architectonic development of the building uses stabilized mud bricks (adobe), which are manufactured with material from our own soil; anti-seismic technology has been used, developed by Universidad Catolica; that is, among other elements, strikers have been installed as well as geogrid liners on the walls and eucalyptus timber crowning the perimeter walls of the complex.

The comprehensive CASA VERDE project contemplates 16 double rooms and 12 duplex, with room to expand to 12 additional rooms; we also have two dinners, two swimming pools, a kids swimming pool, games for kids, a spa, a multi-purpose room, lots of green areas and places to do different recreational things.  In total, more than 5,000 m2 of architectonic development.

We have now developed and commissioned -and have been praised by both, friends and visitors- a large part of the project.  In the next stage, we hope to build eight duplex rooms for 6 guests each, added to the eight rooms we now have.

Our 22 thousand m2 area and facilities are prepared for CASA VERDE's guests to wander around the fields, the countryside and very close to nature, in a wonderful day of relaxation. Also, horse back riding tours on our Paso Horse can be enjoyed in our green areas, as well as sporting activities, such as football, volleyball, walks and games for kids; we also have a pool table, ping pong, hand football and many board games.

The natural environment offers the ideal conditions for horseback riding, biking and walking.  In the evening, guests like to gather around our bonfire and taste some traditional anticuchos (heart of cow skewers) or taste some special cocktails prepared with our Pisco Quebranta.
