What an incredibly relaxing time I had at Klaus and Andrea's home. It is set in beautiful countryside; lots of different trees and plants with great views and sunsets across the landscape. The gardens, which I was able to use, are full of exotic plants and I spent many hours watching countless birds flying around and listening to their song.
The suite itself was amazing; massive very comfortable bed, good, hot shower, very well stocked kitchen and a living area, just for me to use! It was impeccable clean as well and I felt very safe there.
I visited when the weather was quite cool for Paraguay so it wasn't swimming pool weather but I still enjoyed sitting around the inviting pool area reading a book and drinking a cold beer watching the incredible sunsets they have here.
Klaus picked me up from Caacupe (where there is free and easy to access wifi in the main square by the Basilica) and brought me to their home. He was also very kind and dropped me back there when I left. He was very quick to answer my questions before I arrived and recommended to me to buy some food in Caacupe before he picked me up.
It's the kind of place where you can really get away from things and reconnect to nature; to forget about the time. The resident donkey family (Mum, Dad and 6 month old baby donkey plus another on the way) Are very cute and they signalled 4pm (their dinner time) by neighing! Other than that delightful noise the place is really nice and quiet.
I enjoyed walking around the Basilica and climbing to the top (the tower is not open all day though so check times before you visit) and also climbed Cerro Real which is a hill a short walk from the house which has amazing views of the surrounding area.
Sadly I could only stay for 2 days as I had other commitments but I wish I could have stayed longer. Maybe I will come back when it's warmer and swim in the pool!
Klaus and his wife Andrea were so welcoming and helpful. They respected my privacy but were also very friendly. Klaus speaks brilliant English and Spanish and of course they both speak German.
I highly recommend this place.
