Description:

The LOS ALPES lodge is located on the southernmost mountain of the Cordillera de Tilarán (Monteverde), only 48 km (30 miles) from the International Airport "Juan Santamaría" SJO, 65 km (40 miles) from the Costa Rican capital San José and 12 km (7 miles) from the university town of San Ramón in the province of Alajuela.

Due to the good connection, the journey from San Jose Airport to Los Alpes takes only 1.5 hours, which is 4 hours less than the drive to the rainforest reserve of Monteverde!
 
Los Alpes is easily accessible from the airport via the Interamericana, the Interamerican Highway, to San Ramón. From here a paved road leads to the village of Piedades Sur. And from here it is only 4 km (2.5 miles) of gravel road to Bureal, the hamlet that includes the Los Alpes reserve.

The beautiful and spacious LOS ALPES Lodge with its adjoining buildings is surrounded by 100 hectares of untouched forests, secondary forests, bush and grassland. The private estate LOS ALPES is surrounded by another 100 hectares of protected jungle area, which belongs to the German rain forest conservation organization ARCA. The nearby ARCA area makes LOS ALPES all the more valuable as this nature reserve serves as a protective buffer zone.

The Reserva LOS ALPES is directly linked by a wide biological corridor to the Reserva Biológica Alberto Manuel Brenes, the Protected Areas of the Monteverde League, the Children's International Rainforest and the Volcán Arenal National Park. The reserve contains the same species-rich flora and fauna as these protected areas. Due to its hilly landscape, its lake, its river and river valleys and the magnificent view of the forests and the Pacific, the LOS ALPES region varies greatly.

The vast majority of the formerly deforested areas of LOS ALPES are in the process of natural reforestation with native trees of the region.

The tranquility of Los Alpes allows birdwatchers to observe pairs of magnificent quetzals nesting near the house or down by the lake. 5 km of hiking trails lead into the lush, untouched mountain cloud forests with all their mysterious and diverse bird, animal and plant species. A paradise also for professional scientists!

The lodge itself fits in perfectly with the surroundings. Owner and architect used classic Costa Rican country house design. The roof is made of ironwood and covered with baked clay bricks. The house rests on a massive tank concrete slab. The walls consist of hollow blocks filled with concrete and reinforced with concrete. This construction gives the building a first-class security against earthquakes!

The interior of the house is open-plan and is dominated by a hall, which occupies a large place in the interior design. Eye catcher is a magnificent open fireplace.

All in all, the fully furnished main house sleeps 8 people. 2 X 2 on the ground floor and 2 X 2 on the gallery. In addition to the bedrooms there is a fully equipped kitchen with a large fridge and rustic wood stove, two bathrooms, one with a shower and one with a bathtub. The gas heating allows hot water in the bathrooms and in the kitchen.

The lodge is connected to the public electricity and public telephone lines. An electric pump brings water of best drinking quality from a depth of 60 meters into a large tank and from there to the buildings. The amount of water is very productive and is sufficient during the dry and green season. A good blackwater drainage system is installed.

Two French windows lead directly out of the hall onto the spacious covered terrace. From here you have a spectacular view of the Gulf of Nikoya, the Pacific Ocean and the cruise ship - Port Puntarenas and the surrounding forests.

On the terrace you can enjoy the wonderful peace and quiet of the reserve with great sunsets.

The LOS ALPES lake not far from the houses is idyllically embedded in woodland and meadows. Thanks to the good water quality, it is also ideal for swimming.
 
Al lado de la casa principal hay otro edificio, una combinación de garaje y cocina. También es una sólida estructura de hormigón y, al igual que la casa principal, un sólido techo de madera de construcción alpina, también cubierto con ladrillos de barro cocidos originales. En este edificio se encuentra la cocina principal del lodge. También está totalmente equipada con estufa de gas y madera, nevera grande, lavadora y secadora de ropa. Los utensilios de cocina, porcelana y cubiertos son de calidad europea.

Junto a la cocina hay una sala de herramientas y un baño con ducha e inodoro. Una enorme escalera de madera conduce al primer piso con cuatro camas más. Todas las camas en el edificio principal y en la cocina están equipadas con buenos colchones y ropa de cama para cada cama.

Un amplio cobertizo para herramientas está unido a este edificio combi.

En el otro lado de la casa principal hay un granero largo, también una estructura de hormigón armado, también cubierto con un pesado techo de madera de hierro y cubierto con ladrillos de arcilla cocida. Este granero podría convertirse fácilmente en un edificio para dormir, "Cabina", para estudiantes / científicos con 4 salas e instalaciones. También tiene agua y electricidad aquí.

LOS ALPES es concebible como una estación de investigación biológica con un hotel ecológico bungalow alrededor del lago.

Next to the main house is another building, a combination of garage and kitchen. It is also a solid concrete structure and, like the main house, a solid wooden roof of alpine construction, also covered with original fired mud bricks. In this building is the main kitchen of the lodge. It is also fully equipped with gas and wood stove, large fridge, washing machine and clothes dryer. Cooking utensils, china and cutlery are of European quality.

Next to the kitchen is a tool room and a bathroom with shower and toilet. A massive wooden staircase leads to the 1st floor with four more beds. All beds in the main building and in the kitchen house are equipped with good mattresses and bedding for each bed.

A spacious tool shed is attached to this combi building.

On the other side of the main house is a long barn, also an armored concrete structure, also covered with a thick iron-wood roof and covered with baked clay bricks. This barn could easily be converted into a sleeping building, "Cabina", for students / scientists with 4 rooms and facilities. It also has water and electricity here.

LOS ALPES is conceivable as a biological research station with an ecological bungalow hotel around the lake.

The buildings would not disturb the environment, but would benefit from the beauty that LOS ALPES has to offer.

In a nutshell, LOS ALPES is also a "Monteverde", in the same cordillera, but much easier to reach from the central valley.

LOS ALPES has a lot to offer! Come and experience it yourself!
