The Space

Finca Las Frambuesas is a 7 acre farm with a river, small lake, forest, an orchard, 2 traditionally built houses, a fire pit, 3 dogs and a horse. Aside form renting our two beautiful houses, Casa del Lago (Lake House) and Casa del Pozo (Well House), we are starting an organic farming project and organizing holistic courses. If you stay 3 or more days we will share with you a basket of our own organic produce for your enjoyment!

The farm is located in San Isidro de Heredia, less than 40 minutes from the International Airport, only 25 minutes from San Jose by car and just 5 minutes from Braulio Carrillo National Park; a tropical rainforest with one of the highest levels of biodiversity in Costa Rica. More than 90% of the park is covered in primary forest.

Casa del Lago was built in the early 90’s as a family house, with the vision of upbringing our two children in an ideal country side environment not so far from quality educational centers and the comforts of the city. The space will feel very homey and warm, with a cozy traditional (email hidden), and three bedrooms that have been decorated with a personal family touch. Room #1 has a private bathroom. Room #2 and #3 share a bathroom. You can rent the whole house as well.

The area offers many interesting things to do, from chocolate tasting tours, to hikes into the rain forest. Our farm is a perfect base for visiting the volcanoes Poas and Barva. We will provide you with a list of things to do and places to eat or to order.

Getting Around

Public transport is available, although limited. Taxis can be arranged easily. Rented cars are probably the most convenient means of transportation. Upon request a transfer from the airport or/and from San Jose to the farm can be (email hidden) rate.

If you have further questions don’t hesitate to contact us, we will answer quickly and will be more than glad to help you out!
