Interaction with guests
I currently live in Canada and i have a great house keeper (Marla) and a house cleaner (Ana) who take very good care of the house for you.
The house is located on the top of a mountain with an amazing view on the valley, the river and the mountains. It's a quiet place with few neighbors. Ana, who lives in front of the house will be more than happy to help you if you need anything.
She offers a laundry service for a small charge.
You can get to the village by bus (there are 4 buses per day coming to San Gerardo de Rivas) or if you rent a car, you will need a 4x4 WITH LOW GEARS. The last hill to get to the chalet is VERY STEEP, but the view up there is amazing!
There is a parking on site.
Other things to note
The area around San Gerardo de Rivas used to be the sanctuary for native people before the colonization period. Therefore an amazing energy can be felt in those mystical mountains. Even some people talk about a vortex area. You have to feel it to get how it is powerful !
You can smoke outside.

I love the mountains and i'm a nature lover!
I try to go in the forest at least 3 times a week with my daughter and my dog -sometimes with my husband when he's not at work. We love to hike, cross country ski, bike and observe the nature!
