Our charming and comfortable one room country studio sits among exquisite nature. The cabin has a queen size old brass bed with a comfortable mattress and a day bed . The studio is surrounded by glass windows and the shower is also encased in glass so you can take a shower under the moon and stars. The kitchen and dining are al fresco with a veranda overlooking birds of paradise, hummingbirds and butterflies. Enjoy a peaceful retreat 50 min from the city of Bogota. The cottage is located 15 driving minutes away from the town of Choachi (10 kilometers) and 7 minutes from the town of La Union in the rural area of the region.
The area around the cottage is thick with native shrubs, shade trees and exotic flowers. It has a large veranda that goes all around the house allowing for sitting and hammock areas overlooking the scenery. Besides the regular dining table, the cottage keeps a family table that sits 8 for when you have guests over for lunch or dinner. This is the perfect retreat for the writer, the student, the artist and in general for everyone that loves nature and wants to escape the craziness of the city. It invites meditation and yoga practioners love it. We have a property caretaker, Salomon, who is extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the region. He can direct you to hidden trails and treasured vistas as well as provide a wealth of information about the towns.
The studio is removed from the main house and guests go through a beautiful trail that traverses the property gardens. Our guests have access to the entire property with the exception of the main house.

Choachi and La Union are located among the mountains only 55 minutes away from the center of Bogota. It's mild climate, hot springs and beautiful scenery make of these towns a special destination .Bicycle enthusiasts, backpackers, artists, nature lovers and in general anybody who would like to spend a tranquil and lovely time away from the city's hustle is going to be happy in the area.. Choachi is known for it's "amasijo"; delicious baked goods compared to none in the region, and its sweet cuajada con melado (a hand crafted fresh cheese with liquefied panela- brown sugar on top). Market day- Sunday in Choachi is a treat with "arepas de sagu" (corn patties made with sagu and cheese filled), plenty of local vegetables, fruits and my personal favorite- potatoes from the region which are all of them without exception- exquisite. Choachi used to be more of a horse town, but it still has some remnants of it and if you ask around you will find who rents good horses for a great ride through breathtaking senderos. Hiking is a must in the area. The road from Bogota traverses the amazing "paramos" with strange and unique landscapes. In short, everything leading to our cabin, from the road to the two towns, is part of an unforgettable experience.
