Casa Andina Private Collection, Arequipa

But this is not an English stately home, this is a Peruvian-style casa. So make Arequipa part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Peru and, when you arrive at Casa Andina, you’ll be confronted with thick, ochre walls, an imposing entrance with a great, iron-studded door and decorative grilled windows.

The hotel’s interior reinforces your first impression. The lobby is a massive, hewn-stone affair and there’s a graceful inner courtyard framed by monumental pillars supporting huge, rounded arches, a central fountain and grand staircase.

Choose one of the casa’s grander suites and you’ll be sleeping in a chamber with a vaulted stone ceiling, chandelier, rounded arch leading to a sitting room and a rich array of hand crafted furnishings that reflect the local Peruvian idiom.
