La Fortuna chateau / country house description

Rare gallery is a beautiful piece of art, designed and owned by the well known artist, julian tiglat. only the best natural materials were used of the surrounding woods, rivers and the arenal volcano. the majestic house is a lilting combination of straight and curved lines soaring to a high ceiling. the gallery and living area are very large and create a cool open space, while the bedrooms are intimate and cozy. the patio off the family room opens to a very large, private park with birds nesting in the palms where a brook feeds a lovely pond. there is a pool in the house off the gallery and a garage with a work bench and enough room for three cars.

You imagine you are far from civilization in your private paradise with the natural sounds of birds and swaying palms but in reality you are just a kilometer from la fortuna, a charming little town of excellent restaurants, markets, souvenirs and tour agencies at the foot of the active volcano, arenal. in the other direction, just a five minute walk, is a large natural swimming pool in the fortuna river surrounded by jungle, where the locals cool off in the middle of the day. the people of costa rica are very friendly, pleasant and happy, who greet strangers with a salutation of hola and pura vida
