Organic Chocolate Farm with Yoga Studio San Vito 88 Acres
San Vito is a Coffee growing region, now mix that with Organic Chocolate!….. a heavenly delight
This country farm is about 10 kilometers (6 miles) from the center of San Vito, then turning off the main highway another 6 kilometers (3 ¾miles) down into a very large valley. The Valley is incredible; there must be at least a 20 mile radial view in every direction.
As usual, Costa Rica is just so beautiful; I was overtaken once again by the stunning scenery, the distant mountains, the cloud formations, patchwork quilt farms dot the countryside where grazing cattle can be seen in the distance. Damn this is an awesome place to be! This is some of the finest country around, I believe the sun shines more in this valley than other mountainous areas nearby, perhaps because the larger mountain range is so far into the distance, this particular area is not affected by micro climates like other areas.
I really get a sense that this is a great place to live, life can be so simple, clean air, good water, fresh springs the crops and animals flourish, great sunshine!
The Altitude is about 1650 feet above sea level, perfect for any type of farming one could imagine; everything grows here Fruits and Vegetables, San Vito and the surrounding area has been known as a Coffee Producing Region. This particular farm has 17 acres of producing Organic Cacao.
There are nearly 50 Acres of rolling pastures for horses or cattle, or reforesting with a combination of hardwood trees! Aside from the farm aspect I was amazed to see about 15 Acres of Old Growth or Virgin forest, really, I was stunned, this had some of the Largest Trees I have seen in years. These trees are actually set in an Oasis (surrounded by pastures), most of the area has been deforested years ago, this is actually the first time I have seen trees this size in the highlands area.
You’ll be even more pleased to know that the current owners don’t pay anything for electricity, they have an older hydro system from previous owners, which may need updating but the solar panels (2kw system) used are maintenance free.
There is a pond as well and Yes, you could raise you own Tilapia Fish.
The concrete country home with 3 bedrooms a recent updated bathroom with septic tank. The country Kitchen is separate from the main house as many were years ago when they cooked with wood, thus keeping the cooking and smoke away from the sleeping areas. This kitchen as of 2013 is no longer being used the termites decided instead of eating ‘in’ the kitchen it was appropriate to just ‘eat the kitchen’. The cement floor and base could be built upon to raise new walls and update the ceiling. The current owners have updated and built a Yoga Studio and separate Cabin w/ private bath. This has been their living quarters of late.
