Ray purchased this estate in 2012
Villa Le Mas is located among the finest estates in Costa Rica and enjoys magnificent views of Cerro Pico Blanco and of the entire Central Valley. Adjacent to the estate is the nature reserve of Cerro Pico Blanco. Villa Le Mas is a magical place, yet close to business and shopping/entertainment/dining centers.
The rental apartments of Villa Le Mas are set among landscaped, tropical vegetation and our property enjoys extraordinary views of Cerro Pico Blanco and the entire Central Valley.
To start our trip in Costa Rica, we wanted to be near San Jose without undergoing the noise and other inconveniences.
We found a gem! Hidden in the hills of Escazu, in a very upscale area, near the cloud forest, the studio 4 of Villa Le Mas, elegant and original, offers breathtaking views of the mountains, the fields, the surrounding villages, as well as on the Pico Blanco, which often hides in the clouds. The air is cooler than in the city, and purer too!
The apartment includes a large bedroom and a living room with a fully glazed wall overlooking a spectacular view. The adjoining bathroom is great with its large shower. Hot water is not lacking. A door leads to the garden (and its many paths) and the other opens onto the terrace. Chairs and umbrella invite you to relax. The kitchenette is minimalist: two plates, two cups, two glasses, etc. There was, however, great coffee and sugar. A basic kit with salt, pepper, etc. would be a plus, since the nearest grocery store is 10 minutes away by car. But all food needs can be satisfied in the church area, about 15 minutes down the way. The many panaderias are hard to resist!
In the resort surrounded by an electrified fence, there are other studios, each with its own style. In addition, a guard opens the entrance gate only to those who have permission to cross "the gate of heaven!"
We wanted a quiet, not expensive, safe, exotic place with high-speed wi-fi, fit for lovers of birdwatching, nature and hiking. Mission accomplished! In addition to walking along property trails and flower gardens, we walked around and discovered the steep roads leading to Pico Blanco. We were visited daily by the Squirrel cuckoo, the incredible Oropendola bird and about 20 other species.It's also the perfect start to travel in the greater San Jose, Poas volcano, Carthago, Orosi Valley and the Tapanti National Park. A 4x4 vehicle and a GPS are essential.
Our host Ray is very is attentive to every need. And always with a smile.
We recommend this place to all lovers of peace, of nature, and those who need a « zen » break in their lives.
I recently spent a week at this delightful property located near San Antonio.The setting is absolutely amazing! The cool mountain breezes and the lush greenery complement the comforts of home. The apartments are equipped with hot showers, cable TV, 24 hour security, and consistent WiFi, I was able to get a lot of work accomplished. The modest price is meant to offset the inconvenience of the location. It's not easy to find, but neither is anything else in Costa Rica, and there are no grocery stores or other businesses within walking distance. In short, you'll need a car and I strongly recommend a GPS. The owners have three delightful rescue dogs that happily greet visitors upon arrival. Oreo, Negra, and Sasa will enrich your experience. My colleagues and I agree that this is a great place to stay. If you're tired of staying in hotels, and you're looking to go off of the beaten path, choose this property!
