Beautiful Bella Vivace with Rolling Mountain and Bay of Nicoya Views/B&B Option
Immaculate 1-bedroom apt on coffee plantation, mountain views, central to sites
PRIVATE WITH LUSH SURROUNDINGS. Bella Vivace is located on the outskirts of San Ramón in the quaint and secure area called Magallanes, a mix of Costa Rican and expat residents. Hacienda and Bella Vivace sit at the end of a private, quiet country lane on 5 private acres of lush gardens and semi-tropical landscape, rolling mountains and coffee fields, overlooking the Pacific Ocean’s Bay of Nicoya. The views are stunning. The Hacienda is a spectacular, newly completed contemporary Spanish main home with the Bella Vivace apartment at its side. The area is quiet, safe and private, yet 5 minutes to downtown San Ramon.
This new immaculate single-story, 800 sq’ custom-designed apartment is part of Hacienda Vivace, a spectacular, newly completed contemporary Spanish main home. The separate apartment is fully furnished inside and out, and includes two outdoor patios, living room, full kitchen with dining bar, ground floor queen bedroom, full bathroom, laundry and private parking. The spectacular sunsets can be viewed by walking through the arbor to a your private viewing patio. A hearty breakfast can be served at the main Hacienda at an additional cost, with fresh local fruit and juices, homemade pastry, granola and local coffee, followed by a main breakfast dish.
STUNNING VIEWS, WORKING COFFEE PLANTATION, PERFECT CENTRAL LOCATION. The Pacific Highlands where we live is the heartland of Costa Rica with truly awe-inspiring coastal and mountain views, stunning sunsets, year-around weather in the seventies, historic culture, and wonderfully warm people. And San Ramón is the ideal central location to easily go to the airport, beaches, volcanoes, rainforests, and hot springs as well as cultural attractions like San Jose’s Little Theater Group and the infamous Teatro Nacional.
Vista Vivace will give you the chance to experience the real Costa Rica and ‘Pura Vida’ lifestyle, while enjoying the modern luxuries of a beautiful North American style home. We’re located at the end of a private country lane on a working plantation that overlooks the Bay of Nicoya. You can bask in the early morning sunshine with your coffee or enjoy evening cocktails and sunset right from your private patio.
Pick up fresh fruit and vegetables at the weekly outdoor market in historic San Ramon just 5 minutes away, drive to one of the local waterfalls and splash in the pools, visit an orchid garden or sugar cane factory, or launch a day of site seeing to volcanoes, the beaches, zoo, animal rescue center, one of many hot springs, canopy tour, or an evening at Teatro Nacional for symphony or ballet.
PERFECT DRIVING DISTANCE TO COSTA RICA SITES. The Hacienda is 45 minutes from the San Jose International Airport and central driving distance to the most memorable experiences of Costa Rica. Within 90 minutes are attractions such as Poas Volcano, La Paz Waterfalls and Gardens, La Fortuna hot springs, Lake Arenal, Carrera National Rainforest, Sarchi, Puntarenas, Zip-Lining, Butterfly Farms, Animal Rescue Centers, Manual Antonio Biological Reserve, and much more. The nearest beach is just a 30 minute drive away and part of a national rainforest, where capuchin monkeys come down from the trees to join you for lunch. We can help you with arrangements to ensure you experience the best of Costa Rica.
QUAINT VILLAGE OF SAN RAMON. The Hacienda is 5 minutes by car from San Ramon, a ‘muy tranquilo’ provincial town of 20,000 that welcomes travelers with a graceful sense of pride and slow pace of life. Known as the City of Presidents and Poets, San Ramon has been home to four Presidents and many of the literary leaders of Costa Rica. The town itself offers it all — from restaurants and cafes, to museums and art studios, a 3-cinema theater, supermarkets and shops, a major hospital and the University of Cost Rica.
