  • Description


    We are a small family consisting of a Dutch father, a Bolivian mother and a 6 year old boy. Two years ago we moved to Yotala, a picturesque town near Sucre, the capital of Bolivia, also known as a heritage town. We have a big garden and various farm animals.
    This is a farmhouse which can be accessed by crossing a suspension bridge. The river Quirpinchaca separates us from the village, in rainy season there is no passage for vehicles.
    The beautiful Yotalita is at 2590 m above the sea level. Overall the climate is mild but in winter it can get cold due to the proximity to the river,

    Vivimos una casa hacienda a la que se accede cruzando un puente colgante, el rio Quirpinchaca nos separa del pueblo, en epoca de lluvia no hay paso vehicular, la bella Yotalita esta a 2590 m. s. n. m. el clima es templado, en epoca de invierno el frio se deja sentir por la cercania al rio.
