- What should I know before I arrive?
There is a steep hill (200m) to hike in order to access the farm. You need to be in good shape. Depending on the season, it might not be accessible by car. We can arrange for a horse to carry your backpack if you advise us of your arrival day and time (2-3 days before).
We practice sustainable living therefore we use composting toilets. We will definetly show you all the ins and outs of it. An open-mind is always welcome 🙂
Farm = nature = bugs . They are just part of our environment and all our living spaces are open! So if you need some, bring natural bug repellent. We provide mosquito nets for a sweet sleep 🙂
- What are the facilities like?
We provide a shared kitchen with a fridge, gas-cooking-unit, sink, natural dishwashing soap and basic cutlery.
Compost toilets and shower are shared.
We have private single, matrimonial and shared rooms. Every bed has a mosquito net.
The guesthouse has many common living spaces with hammocks, a variety of books and board games.
We trust that common sense and respect of each other spaces is within each and all of us 😉
- Do I need vaccine or pills?
Check with your country of origin health center for updates.
- How many people are there?
We, Soa, Simon and Lili have a house on the farm next to the guest house. We are as loud as a family with a young one can be 😉 The guest house capacity is for 6 people and there is a camping area. Therefore, depending on the touristy season, you might be all by yourself or max 5-6 persons. Although, animals are a big part of the farm and they will walk freely around your house 🙂

We have a land phone on the farm for emergencies. The nearest Internet connection is in Canoa, 20 min by car. There is wifi in many restaurants and cafés and 2 cybercafés (app. 1$us/hour)
