Casa Galavanta is a private wooden lodge nestled between dense rainforest and lush coffee fields in the heart of the Sierra Nevada.
Perched at an impressive 1,500 metres-above-sea-level, it is quite literally up in the clouds, and enjoys unspoiled ocean views. With an eco-friendly design, Casa Galavanta has a rustic feel yet offers the utmost level of contemporary comfort with four large bedrooms and cosy living spaces to relax in after a day exploring this diverse region.
The house comes with a Private Chef to rustle up an exquisite menu influenced by traditional recipes and embellished by modern techniques. Cooking classes are a fun way to learn more about these methods and can always be enhanced by a visit to the local markets to pick and choose the ingredients.
For the ultimate in experiential travel, a full day helicopter ride to get you out into the mountains should not be missed. The journey allows you to catch a glimpse of the Sierra Nevada’s snow-capped peaks as well as a chance to hover over Ciudad Perdida (The Lost City), the remarkable archaeological remains of an ancient city built by the Tayrona tribe in 800AD, 650 years before Machu Picchu. Finish this one-of-a-kind tour by landing at a traditional coffee hacienda to learn about the traditional coffee harvesting process and enjoy a cup of coffee amongst the Sierra Nevada’s lush nature.
