Beautiful & comfortable country cottage close to Choachi, Cundinamarca & only 50 minutes from Bogota, the region features warm weather & exquisite landscapes. Enjoy 2 rooms that sleep 6 with 3 bathrooms, comfortable kitchen, delightful dining and living room & gardens as well as a wonderful and large terrace overlooking the gardens and mountains. Walking distance to the river - Rio Blanco- and to the tiny town of La Union. We have a caretaker who looks after the gardens and lives in the property. He knows a lot about the history and geography of the area. He can point out every single Camino Real (the ancient "caminos"used by the indians). The biodiversity of this area is stunning. It is home to over 100 types of hummingbirds and many other varieties of birds. The house is rustic but comfortable. The kitchen is a delight with big windows opening to the orange grove, the terrace is about 4 X 6 meters in one side and 1.5 meters X 4 on the other. The region used to be horse country before the advent of the motorcycle but one can still find good rental horses.

About Me
I love nature, beautiful things, kindness, intelligence, generosity, a sense of humor creativity and honor. I was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia, I attended a very progressive school during the sixties, had a short stint as a host for a children's TV program and then I went to law school. While in university I discovered that the world was huge! filled with ideas, interesting people, fantastic possibilities. I went to the mountains north of Colombia with my boyfriend to a totally primitive and breathtakingly beautiful place. We lived there for over a year in a commune that formed itself in a very organic way. This was one of the best times ever. We had nothing and needed nothing else. Friendships forged during that time have been a constant in all of our lives and to this day not only are we close but our children as well. Alas! The practice of law was not my cup of tea and I pursued different and wonderful areas of development (I still do) with mixed results but with really amazing travels and experiences. Today I find myself living in the US, still traveling when possible to places around the world. I believe in paying forward and in the strength of kindness and compassion. I enjoy sharing my love for Latin and world music, exciting art, architecture and design, really good writing, and good conversation. The cottage in Colombia is a beautiful example of the simple, rural housing with adobe walls and wooden planks typical of the area It is surrounded by gardens and our caretaker Salomon looks after them with intense dedication.
