About this listing

Our recently restored country home awaits you. Enjoy the scenic and peaceful Boyacence countryside as you disconnect from the modern world without disconnecting from comfort. Located ~200km via modern motorway from Bogota's international airport, our home boasts incredible views, a hot tub, easy access to mountain trails and much more.

The space

A beautiful home in the colorful alpine countryside. You may sit undisturbed for days as you gaze out at majestic mountains or you can dabble in the awe-inspiring local culture and history.

Guest access

Easy access to picturesque nature trails and quaint villages. A renown spa and eco friendly medical center, Biosalud, is within a 20 minute drive. So are the hot springs of Paipa. Our home is located centrally within the cultural and historic mosaic that is the Boyaca department. Located on the Cundiboyacence high plateau, the alpine scenery more closely resembles the Swiss alps than the tropical landscape that comprises most of the country. Visit centuries' old towns that witnessed the march of South America's founding father, Simon Bolivar, as you savor the rich cultural heritage left behind by Spanish colonists and the intriguing pre-Columbian civilization that inhabited the area.

Interaction with guests

The house's groundskeeper is a local and trusted woman that lives a peaceful and easygoing life nearby. She will be the main point of contact for guests and will assist with tasks such as lighting the fireplace and wood oven in the kitchen as well as the preparation of breakfast. She loves meeting foreigners and although her English is limited, hospitality is a language known by all and she is quite proficient. I will also be available virtually for any assistance that you may require during your stay.

Other things to note

You must not miss out on the local specialty of wood grilled trout. Raised nearby by a local clergyman, the trout are bought fresh from the local supermarket and seasoned with the house's own rosemary as well as other local spices and prepared on the grill by our groundskeeper. For those who are curious as to the livelihood of a local farmer, she is more than happy to show you her nearby home and her beloved livestock. If you are daring, I recommend you bring a cup with you so you can savor a cow's milk fresh out of the udder. You have not lived until you have drank fresh milk from a happy, healthy cow. Her range free chickens also provide incredibly delicious eggs. Our groundskeeper is also a talented basket-weaver and will have various items for sale.

On the whole we enjoyed our time in Boyaca. Everyone involved was very courteous and this home is beautiful. However, we had several major issues that took away from our enjoyment. The main thing was the lack of hot water during all but the final evening of our stay. Also, we were told there was an extra heater in one of the rooms that apparently was in disrepair, as well as the refrigerator which was broken in the top freezer section. The grass was tall and hindered our kids from playing much in the spacious yard. I did mention these issues with David, the owner. He was courteous and promised to take down the listing until each of these things were dealt with. Upon repair, I would recommend this place 100%. David and his mother, as well as the groundskeeper Nelcy and her family, were all so kind and ready to do anything to make our stay fantastic. David even recommended many great activities in the area. I don't generally leave negative reviews, and I trust that this will not be taken as one. There were simply several "small things" that hindered us from enjoying our family vacation. Once again, after these small things are taken care of, this place is a winner! Check them out!

David is a very nice and helpful host. He was available all the time for any questions we had. The house is in the real countryside, with an amazing and marvelous landscape around it. It´s a simple but comfortable house. It has ample spaces inside and outside. The pictures show the house like it really is. The surroundings are quiet and perfect for long and tranquil walks. The closest neighbor is Esperanza, a nice lady who helps with the kitchen, the cleaning, and starting the fireplace and the barbecue. She is very polite and helpful. You can find everything you need at Cerinza, the small town 1 Km away. We would be very happy to come back any time to this lovely countryside house.

Es un paraje fantástico. Las montañas son espectaculares. Tuvimos un par de noches llenas de estrellas. Montamos en bicicleta y fuimos hasta la laguna de las cruces que es en un páramo maravilloso. Hace frío y hay que estar preparados. La casa es muy linda y sólo tiene un par de aspectos a mejorar que seguro estarán al día cuando vayan.

Un destino espectacular para los que buscan alejarse de las complicaciones de la ciudad, totalmente tranquilo y 100% campestre. Una fusion con la naturaleza y un delicioso clima frio. Toda una aventura usa la estufa con leña y carbon.

La experiencia fue perfecta. La casa tiene todo para desconectarse y relajarse en medio de la naturaleza. Los anfitriones siempre estuvieron pendientes de nuestra estadía. La vecina más cercana, Esperanza además de ayudar en la cocina y en el aseo, es una persona muy atenta y una magnifica guía de la región. Definitivamente es un sitio para regresar.
