The town of Sarchi, also known as the “safest town in Costa Rica” is a famous Artisan town, famous for its unique, beautiful and colourful painting and furniture making.

Only about 45 minutes from San Jose International Airport and about 1.5 hours to the nearest beach (Puntarenus).

There is a hospital in Sarchi. And, should anyone have any medical concerns a helicopter pickup can be pre-arranged for any emergency out of Pavas Airport. The chopper could be there in just a very few minutes (and can land on the property also).

The home was originally a barn on this huge piece of land. Purchased in 2005 and remodeled to what it is today. It has decent Internet, hot water, a washer and dryer, landline and another system for free calls to the US and Canada. It has two bathrooms and two bedrooms. The top floor is a huge bedroom with closet and full bathroom with a shower. A modern kitchen is located on the first floor.

A local family are maintaining the property and are absolutely wonderful. They are very hard working farmers. We let them run a cow or two on our land as well as grow radishes, cilantro, chili peppers, corn, potatoes and coffee. They speak zero English but will try to assist you in any way possible.
