Hilde Checca is the owner of the Casa de la Bella Flor. She and her entire family have lived in this village for many years, and they were among the first to inhabit Yanque. Hilde worked many years in different hotels, until she decided that her house could also accommodate visitors. Then, she and her husband Natalie decided to make this possible. Hilde is very concerned about her guests and cooks and always serves with the interests of her visitors in mind. This accommodation is more than simply a bed, but it is really a local experience where one can stay in a typical home and talk to the family around the fireplace with a delicious coca tea.
