Luis A. Picard Ami or Arlene Lachman purchased this house in 2003
One and a half hours (90 kilometers) from Panama City, and usually 10-12 degrees cooler than the city. Thirty minutes (28 kilometers ) from the beaches, Great place to relax enjoy nature, go horse back ridding, grow own vegetables, exercise. If you are up for it there are local companies who organize extreme sports expeditions like water rappelling, white water rafting, mountain biking or hiking, wall climbing, etc a block away from the property.
Magnificent mountain views and climate.
This house was perfect for my stay. It was 8 adults and 4 children (including a baby) and we were all very comfortable. Most of the rooms hve full bathrooms inside, it has different places and ambiances to eat. Al fresco in a terrace, inside looking at the backyard, at the backyard, in front of the pool etc. Breeze was lovely and we even cooked at the fireplace/bbq outside and also the grill indoors.
Also the backyard property was beautiful and it includes animals for the kids to watch and a lot of room to play and run.
All in all a truly amazing house and i would love to comeback soon. Excellent!!
This was a lovely place for our family reunion of 17 people! A wonderful home with every convenience. The yard is immaculate with flowers and gardens.
This house is special. It comes with a ~500 sq meter common space that has a pool, grill, living room, and bar all in one room. It also has 3-4 lovely outdoor patios with tons of grass beyond, and 6 dogs that live outside in the yard! They know not to come inside, and are well trained.
Luis, the owner, was very helpful in helping us customize our experience. His maid, Anabel, was very helpful all weekend as well.
For a large group, this house couldn't be better!
We loved staying at Luis' house. It was such a unique and beautiful home. It's the ideal place for a group of people. The entire property is gorgeous and we loved the dogs. The staff was incredibly kind and helped us with anything we needed. We hope we can go back and stay there again. It was so great!
Esta propiedad localizada en El Valle de Antón es un Tesoro, no por lujo, sino por lo confortable y cálida. Tiene tantas áreas ricas para estar, no sólo es la piscina, es toda la casa, sus jardines, las terrazas. Fuimos un grupo pequeño (8 adultos), pero acomoda 18/20 personas y no te sentirás nunca apretado. Tiene personal que ayuda con las labores por un pequeño extra.
This is the second time I have stayed in this magical house. It is the kind of place that inspires you to want to live in Panama. This house is located in a beautiful little town called El Valle, about a 2-hour drive from Panama City. The weather in El Valle is very different than the weather in Panama City as it is up in the mountains and located in a volcano so the breezes are very refreshing and cool. The breeze makes for a relaxed, sound sleep at night. One of coolest features of this house is that there is a swimming pool right in the living room. The pool is built like a lagoon or what you would imagine if you were floating around in a local, natural panamanian pool in the jungle. The pictures don't do it justice. The house is complete with all amenities and then some, like a pool table, Wi-Fi, tons of cable stations, many terraces where you can eat or relax, horses (yes, I said horses), gardens with tons of fruit trees, but most of all, it comes with Annabel. Annabel is the housekeeper who is very caring, gentle and completely happy to make your life at the estate as comfortable as possible. I cannot recommend this place enough. It is exactly what you would need for a wonderful vacation. The house is huge so bringing a large family to relax, bond, and vacation together would be just what the doctor ordered.
Try to include a weekend for your vacation, as there is a fun marketplace on Saturdays and Sundays. Also go to the Italian restaurant called L'Italiano...it's easy to find, as it has several green, white and red signs on the right side of the roadas you head into town. Authentic Italian food and really, really good.
