The NeighborhoodThe Neighborhood "San Ramón, Alajuela" Huetar indigenous communities, led by Coyoche Garabito, inhabited the region during the pre-Columbian era. Today it is a vast region with many natural and touristic resources and its regional head is the most important city in western Costa Rica. It is called the “City of Poets” due to the many outstanding poets, sculptors, politicians and teachers in in Costa Rican history that were born in the city. San Ramón is located in a strategic and privileged geographic position. It is located just 59 km away from San José, the country’s capital; a short distance from the Juan Santamaría International Airport; it also lies close to La Fortuna de San Carlos, one of the tourism epicenters in the country; and borders with the Province of Puntarenas, a very popular destination. The canton oers tourism services such as lodging, local cuisine, adventure trails, themed exhibitions and recreational activities. There are ample hotels, restaurants, bars, natural trails, canopy tours and souvenir shops to choose from. Many of the old traditions and customs are still active, a reection of the cultural richness of the region. We cannot forget the natural beauty and amazing landscapes derived from the various microclimates and rich biological diversity, protected wildlife areas and areas of high altitude. (Moya, M. 2013) San Ramón Central Quadrant The central district of San Ramón is characterized by cultural, historical and religious attractions; including the Regional Museum, the José Figueres Ferrer Cultural and Historic Centre, the Alberto Manuel Brenes Park (the Municipal Park), the Parish Church, the Farmer’s Festival, the Municipal Market, and the National Oxherder Monument. This is where traditions like “Maria’s Melcochas” and various cultural and religious celebrations like the Patron Saint Festivities, Oxherders’ Parade and the Entry of the Saints’ Images take place. Getting AroundTo get to the house is possible with car or public transport. Much better if you come by car. What to do? Michael Moya’s investigation (2013) focused on the identication of the cantons attractive features, di-erent tourism services and the interrelation of these elements in conforming a more organized and striking product for the tourist through the following touristic routes: 1.Ecological Aventure Route 2.La Paz Cloud Forest Route 3.Zapotal Agritourism Route 4.Peñas Blancas Agritourism Route 5.Bird Watching Route 1.

        Villa Hada Escondida is a beautiful private and secluded home 15 minutes from San Ramon and just minutes from the road to Arenal. It is elegantly decorated with Costa Rican hardwoods, ceramic tile, original native artworks and luxurious bedding and amenities throughout. Surrounded by 180 degree pastoral mountain views of the stunning Central Valley and adjacent canyon, Villa Hada sits on a quiet country lane on the southern edge of the lush Los Angeles Cloud Forest. Our guests love when the morning and late afternoon clouds briefly enshroud the house in cloud mist in this unique ecosystem. We enjoy an average daily high of 82F (28C) and a low of 64F (16.5C). The villa is situated on a hilltop facing east/west so you can watch the sunrise from the kitchen table and relax over a sunset that's perfectly framed by the balcony's teak timber posts. Pop your iPhone onto our dual speaker docking station and listen to your own playlist while you enjoy a morning coffee on our terrazza or balcony or spend an evening watching films on our DVD player in the sitting room. Villa Hada is a unique family holiday home located on nearly two acres of lush rain forest and surrounded by guava and ratoncillo trees covered in epiphytes and bromeliads. Because of the humid cloud forest climate, our hibiscus hedge-enclosed garden has beautiful hydrangea and rose bushes in addition to the tropical plants you'd expect to see in Costa Rica. Our guests love the fresh guavas, bananas and plantains they can pick from our own trees. Villa Hada Escondida has its own private rain forest nature trail which leads past our banana grove on a gently sloping zigzag path towards golden bamboo to a creek and waterfall where you'll see hummingbirds, blue morpho butterflies, tree ferns and birds of paradise. And no worries if you forgot to pack your wellies and walking stick. Villa Hada guests will find a selection of rubber wellies and bamboo walking sticks in the laundry for exploring our property. Our proximity to the airport makes Villa Hada an excellent choice for your first or last few days in Costa Rica or for a place to totally chill out for a week. Our home is in a guarded community of European and North American expatriates. Many of our guests choose Villa Hada as place to research the San Ramon area for its affordable real estate. Both bathrooms overlook the garden and canyon and have huge showers complete with Moen rain shower heads and plush white cotton towels. All beds feature high thread count sheets, feather down pillows and duvets, and decorative cushions and plush throws for comfort. Our colourful cotton hammocks, rocking chairs, and eucalyptus wood dining table and chairs are perfect places for birdwatching over the canyon. Art enthusiasts will love Villa Hada's collection of original artwork and paintings by the German-born La Fortuna Coco Loco Gallery owner and artist Ruth Deiseroth-Kweton and the artisan statuary by Guanacaste's indigenous Chortega indians throughout the garden. Villa Hada's ceramic-tiled first floor features a gourmet kitchen with a stainless steel refrigerator and gas stove, a wooden trestle table with bench seating, a sitting room area with a futon, and a full-service laundry room. The downstairs bedroom has two beautiful hardwood twin beds, nightstands and armoire. A separate sink area has an elegant glass bowl basin for washing up. Upstairs you'll find an open-beamed ceiling great room with the master bedroom's dramatic and romantic wall of ivory cotton voile curtains behind the hardwood-topped hand wrought iron railing on one side and a sitting area on the other. The sheer drapes filter the light and add privacy without blocking the gorgeous views of rolling hills through the balcony's wall of windows. The upstairs features a continuous wall of windows overlooking the canyon and has beautifully polished hardwood floors covered with colourful cotton dhurrie rugs. The master bedroom is a cozy retreat with feather bedding, beautiful ceramic lamps and hardwood furnishings. Across from the bedroom is our cosy sitting area with a comfortable rattan settee, chairs and tables and decorative cushions, perfect for cuddling up with a good book after a fun day of exploring. Villa Hada is available for monthly rental during the green season (May-November) only. Although Villa Hada does not offer internet access, our guests can purchase a SIM card for their mobile telephone at the airport and receive data at the house. San Ramon also has several popular internet cafes. Please note: Because the house can be difficult to find in the dark, all guests must arrange to arrive at the property before 5.00pm (17:00h) local time to receive the keys from our caretaker who will show you around the house. Villa Hada is a strictly non-smoking home. Wondering what the house's name means? Villa Hada Escondida means Country House of the Hidden Faerie. Our two small children love faeries and all things magical and truly believe that faeries exist, especially in their house in Costa Rica.

        Villa Hada Escondida is a beautiful private and secluded home 15 minutes from San Ramon and just minutes from the road to Arenal. It is elegantly decorated with Costa Rican hardwoods, ceramic tile, original native artworks and luxurious bedding and amenities throughout. Surrounded by 180 degree pastoral mountain views of the stunning Central Valley and adjacent canyon, Villa Hada sits on a quiet country lane on the southern edge of the lush Los Angeles Cloud Forest. Our guests love when the morning and late afternoon clouds briefly enshroud the house in cloud mist in this unique ecosystem. We enjoy an average daily high of 82F (28C) and a low of 64F (16.5C). The villa is situated on a hilltop facing east/west so you can watch the sunrise from the kitchen table and relax over a sunset that's perfectly framed by the balcony's teak timber posts. Pop your iPhone onto our dual speaker docking station and listen to your own playlist while you enjoy a morning coffee on our terrazza or balcony or spend an evening watching films on our DVD player in the sitting room. Villa Hada is a unique family holiday home located on nearly two acres of lush rain forest and surrounded by guava and ratoncillo trees covered in epiphytes and bromeliads. Because of the humid cloud forest climate, our hibiscus hedge-enclosed garden has beautiful hydrangea and rose bushes in addition to the tropical plants you'd expect to see in Costa Rica. Our guests love the fresh guavas, bananas and plantains they can pick from our own trees. Villa Hada Escondida has its own private rain forest nature trail which leads past our banana grove on a gently sloping zigzag path towards golden bamboo to a creek and waterfall where you'll see hummingbirds, blue morpho butterflies, tree ferns and birds of paradise. And no worries if you forgot to pack your wellies and walking stick. Villa Hada guests will find a selection of rubber wellies and bamboo walking sticks in the laundry for exploring our property. Our proximity to the airport makes Villa Hada an excellent choice for your first or last few days in Costa Rica or for a place to totally chill out for a week. Our home is in a guarded community of European and North American expatriates. Many of our guests choose Villa Hada as place to research the San Ramon area for its affordable real estate. Both bathrooms overlook the garden and canyon and have huge showers complete with Moen rain shower heads and plush white cotton towels. All beds feature high thread count sheets, feather down pillows and duvets, and decorative cushions and plush throws for comfort. Our colourful cotton hammocks, rocking chairs, and eucalyptus wood dining table and chairs are perfect places for birdwatching over the canyon. Art enthusiasts will love Villa Hada's collection of original artwork and paintings by the German-born La Fortuna Coco Loco Gallery owner and artist Ruth Deiseroth-Kweton and the artisan statuary by Guanacaste's indigenous Chortega indians throughout the garden. Villa Hada's ceramic-tiled first floor features a gourmet kitchen with a stainless steel refrigerator and gas stove, a wooden trestle table with bench seating, a sitting room area with a futon, and a full-service laundry room. The downstairs bedroom has two beautiful hardwood twin beds, nightstands and armoire. A separate sink area has an elegant glass bowl basin for washing up. Upstairs you'll find an open-beamed ceiling great room with the master bedroom's dramatic and romantic wall of ivory cotton voile curtains behind the hardwood-topped hand wrought iron railing on one side and a sitting area on the other. The sheer drapes filter the light and add privacy without blocking the gorgeous views of rolling hills through the balcony's wall of windows. The upstairs features a continuous wall of windows overlooking the canyon and has beautifully polished hardwood floors covered with colourful cotton dhurrie rugs. The master bedroom is a cozy retreat with feather bedding, beautiful ceramic lamps and hardwood furnishings. Across from the bedroom is our cosy sitting area with a comfortable rattan settee, chairs and tables and decorative cushions, perfect for cuddling up with a good book after a fun day of exploring. Villa Hada is available for monthly rental during the green season (May-November) only. Although Villa Hada does not offer internet access, our guests can purchase a SIM card for their mobile telephone at the airport and receive data at the house. San Ramon also has several popular internet cafes. Please note: Because the house can be difficult to find in the dark, all guests must arrange to arrive at the property before 5.00pm (17:00h) local time to receive the keys from our caretaker who will show you around the house. Villa Hada is a strictly non-smoking home. Wondering what the house's name means? Villa Hada Escondida means Country House of the Hidden Faerie. Our two small children love faeries and all things magical and truly believe that faeries exist, especially in their house in Costa Rica.
