In the verdant highlands of Veraguas Panama, sits a
tropical mountain home, reminiscent of a Swiss chalet. Once the estate
of a wealthy Panamanian businessman, this villa is artfully
constructed of exotic local materials and surrounded by ever-blooming
gardens of fruits and flowers. Shrouded from the simple village streets by
its lush gardens, the site still offers splendid vistas of the
mountains, rainbows, dramatic cloud formations, and a stunning night sky.
The three gracious upstairs bedrooms and two modern bathrooms provide plenty of hot water. A dormitory that sleeps 8 people with its' own bathroom and a matrimonial room have been recently added.
A tradtional "rancho", or large covered outdoor living area, is
strung with hammocks and filled with rustic seating.
This lovely mountain home was recently renovated by a
broadly-cultured Belgian-Argentine couple. They speak English, Spanish
and French and are considered part of the local community, with
friendly relations with local eco-tourist guides. The villa has been
equipped with a sensitivity to the needs of visitors, providing
homelike facilities for vacationers. Local, well-trained cooks are available to
prepare food for visitors' tastes. The telephone service is very
reliable and long distance calls are very inexpensive.
This villa is located in the quiet town of Santa Fe (pop. 2300), in
Veraguas Province, Panama. Santa Fe enjoys a unique
micro-climate. The daily tempurature can range from 60 to 89º F degrees
within a day, with fresh winds and tropical showers most of the year.
This climate results in lush environs and an abundance of fresh
fruit. The area offers access to numerous nature hikes to waterfalls
and mountain destinations. Several river trips and horseback rides
are available through most of the year. The founder of a local
environmental group uses his extensive knowledge as a guide to the region
and its natural resources. The city of Santiago (Panama's 4th largest
city) is situated little more than an hour to the south,
accessible by bus or taxi, for business, banking and other services.
