Our 2 Kids...

Didier PETRE purchased this house in 2006

Why Didier PETRE chose Bolivia

We really fall in love with our house when we bought it in 2006. As we have been living before in Europe, Africa and Latin America, we know the necesity for travelers or visitors to find sometimes a cosy and quiet place where to have a rest, to finish a book, to be completely autonomous and to cook by themselves. We would like to share our enthousiasm for the region and the Bolivian culture, and we decided to build and open Las Hiedras in 2013.

What makes this house unique

A classy and quiet house, just 20 minutes from Cochabamba.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed in this apartment for 11 days, with my wife. I had a very relaxing and great vacation experience at this place. Its just a few meters away from small grocery stores and the Tiquipaya market where you can buy some fresh fruits at a very cheap price. The house manager Didier and his wife Milenka were also very friendly. Free 10L of mineral water available when I arrived which was so nice. The WIFI was also perfect and a lot better than the bolivian average connection. Forgot to mention the communication with owner was also excellent, fast, easy and worry free.

Great

  • 4 of 5

The house is well decorated and very clean, but a little far from the main city of Cochabamba. It's a 30 minutes ride in taxi for 30 bolivianos, which makes it expensive to go to Cochabamba everyday and see a lot of stuff. The village of Tiquipaya is however really nice and you can buy whatever you need in the main street.

The house is on the same field then theirs, which makes it really easy to communicate, but less intimate. They have two dogs, which was great for me because I missed mine, but you should know that they will be in your garden and saying 'hello' at the fence of your balcony every morning.

Nothing else to say about the house itself, it was perfect!
