    The Villa looks out on horse pastures and misty mountains. Fresh soft breezes cool the generous kitchen/dining area. Lush gardens are all around you, emitting night scents and day scents that leave you smiling. Pick fresh fruit from the citric orchard and squeeze your breakfast juice. All the soft noises of animals -- from toucans to horse hooves, the water buffalo’s soft braying, and the baaa of sheep remind you that you are connected to the earth, the soil, the farm.

    You are as quiet and private and isolated as you want. Or wander down to the stables - play with the pets, feed some animals, or watch the horses in training. Horses are available for riding (additional cost). The ATV's are fun, too. And if you wish to see the world from above, we operate the only hot air balloon in Cen...

    Additional Location Information
    Our farm is only 20 minutes from Fortuna (the base of fiery Arenal volcano) yet borders on wilderness, rivers and forests where we ride horses and ATV's and hike without the press of tourism. Bird watching and playing in hot springs, swimming in crystalline waters -- all nearby and all private for you. Plus hot springs and belching Arenal volcano only 20 minutes away. It is a great place to raise our family.
    The Unique Benefits of this Villa

    Peace, tranquility and the earthiness of a working horse farm. So far away from the crowds and the noise, yet 20 minutes from the tourist Mecca of Fortuna, and Arenal volcano.

We cannot say enough wonderful things about the location, and about Esteban (owner / manager) and Danny (naturalist / tour guide). From the very beginning Esteban assisted us with our rental car arrangements, and suggestions for the first half of our trip (which was on the Pacific Coast), and suggestions for our time in Central Costa Rica. All of his...

We would like to thank Esteban for taking care of us during our 4 night stay at his property. He was so helpful with planning our stay - arranged all of the activities and even got us a discount on a rental car. His knowledge was invaluable in making sure our stay was worry-free. We stayed at his bigger property... more

We couldn't believe that our experience here exceeded our very high expectations! The villas are beautiful and kept immaculately clean. All of the staff are happy and helpful and Esteban is extraordinary in the service that he provides. We went on the ATVS and horseback riding. The ATV tour was magical because we stopped at a natural hot springs out... more
