My experience at Maria Clara's place was very rewarding, her house is very beautiful surrounded by nature, very peaceful. I could enjoy all her kindness at the same as her family's. We had great breakfast with fruit and engaging conversations. As is not very easy to reach her house (because of the mountain), she picked us up and brought to her place. Summing up, she and her family are very helpful
María Clara y Hugo son unas personas muy gentiles, que me recibieron en su casa en la montaña y me sentí muy cómoda porque encontré impecable la habitación, las sábanas limpias !!!, fue muy agradable, el desayuno delicioso, con frutas, café fresco y otras delicias… La casa tiene una vista espectacular que además está rodeada de naturaleza nativa y agreste silvestre, se puede salir a pasear tranquilamente por el campo, respirando aire puro y disfrutando un paisaje muy lindo, pasé feliz porque caminé con mi perra Golden Retriever por caminos rurales por donde encontramos varios lagos a donde fue a parar… gracias por hacerme esta estadía tan agradable, se los recomiendo, yo volveré, la próxima vez más días, porque además queda muy cerca de Raquira, de villa de Leyva, a 20 minutos… y estamos en la montaña
