We came to Costa Rica in 2005 to visit for 3 months. That visit changed our lives. We were seduced by this small country, and finally settled down here, where the continual charms of nature never stop surprising us! We are a french family, Swin and Jedy, and our boys Hanoi and Lilo.

For the three month visit we rented a small chalet in a mountain lodge. It was a little neglected, but it was situated in a small paradise with huge views that captured our hearts. We decided to stay here, and we bought it! We started to clean, renovate, renew and furnish the existing lodge buildings, and to build our own house here.

This was a big undertaking, but a wonderful challenge!
