This is a beautiful, natural area with forests and expansive views of the valleys all the way down to the Gulf of Nicoya. It is a wonderful place to walk and people are very friendly and easy-going. There are several very good restaurants within five minutes (walking) and a small health food store also.
There is an inexpensive bus that goes to the Monteverde Cloud Forest each morning. It is 2 minutes away to get it. Walking is the best and healthiest way to get around but taxis are also available and are inexpensive. We have free parking for guests who bring their own car.
Tarsicio's is nestled in a beautiful location that is both quiet and a short walk from downtown Monteverde. He and his wife are gracious hosts and I know if I ever return I will try to stay here again. Highly recommended.
Pasamos dos noches en casa alquimia. Tarsicio y Marianela son super amables y dulces. La habitacion linda, comoda y preparada con cuidado. El b&b esta aun en construccion pero eso no supuso ninguna incomodidad. Sin duda volveriamos a hospedarnos aqui.
Nous avons eu un très beau séjour avec nos trois jeunes enfants à la Casa Alquimia Artes. L'endroit est charmant et unique. Les lits sont très confortables et les déjeuners délicieux. Tarcisio et sa conjointe sont des hôtes chaleureux qui vous font sentir comme si vous étiez de la famille. Leurs avis concernant les activités à faire dans la région nous ont été très utiles. Disponibles et serviables, ils étaient accessibles en tout temps dans la maison située à quelques pas de l'auberge. Nous n'hésitons pas à la recommender. Merci encore pour le beau séjour!
Tarsicio and Marianela were wonderful hosts. They consistently went out of their way to help me be comfortable throughout the 5+ weeks that I spent with them. The bed and breakfast is a beautiful work in progress, and though there is construction taking place almost every day, you won't even notice if you are out exploring the town. The location of the B&B is perfect for exploring everything between the town of Santa Elena (a 25 minute walk) and the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve (a 45 minute walk in the other direction). I would definitely stay here again!
I had a great time in Monteverde and huge part of it was staying with Tarsicio. The house is beatiful, all natural wood, very clean, comfortable room with a nice view and private bathroom.
In the morning Tarcisio and his family prepared breakfast with homemade bread and delicious jelly and fruit.
Tarsicio was also very helpful in helping me book my activities and plan out my days so that I could have the best possible experience.
I would definitely go back and stay there again!
Un véritable accueil chaleureux tout près de la réserve de Monteverde.
Tarsicio nous a accordé beaucoup de son temps pour nous conseiller et nous apprendre des choses. Un prix très accessible pour l'hébergement et le petit déjeuner délicieux.
