the coffee farmhouse: a hushed sanctuary


Tucked in the outskirts of Tagaytay lies a hushed sanctuary unknown to many travelers. Located in Alfonso, Cavite, the Coffee Farmhouse is a laid-back destina
tion that provides its guests a domestic and friendly setting. Owned by Bert and Bebet Arenal, the vast landscape was acquired by the retiring couple in 2002 as a vacation destination for the family. With friends and relatives constantly persuading them, Tito Bert and Tita Bebet finally decided to open the gates of the farm for explorers to experience serene days in the farmhouse.

Blessed with lush coffee trees and flowering plants, the scenery itself in the Coffee Farmhouse casts a spell of tranquility to a tired and weary soul. It is a place where one would enjoy walking on the dew-filled grass while admiring colorful flowers spread out everywhere. Hammocks, age-old wooden benches and swings made from tree branches are found in various nooks for guests to rest, reflect and give praise to God. Outdoor and indoor activities for the able-bodied may be enjoyed too.

A very reasonable overnight rate at Php2,075 per head provides guests the use of adequate amenities and facilities. The rate is inclusive of 7 appealing buffet meals --- 3 snacks, lunch, dinner, breakfast and lunch the next day. With the abundant supply of coffee beans available in the farm, guests get to enjoy a warm cup of coffee anytime of the day.

Above everything the Coffee Farmhouse offers, what separates them from the rest of vacation destinations is the homey feel the owners generously provide their guests. From picking you up in the main road of Tagaytay down to cooking your delightful meals, Tito Bert and Tita Bebet will be there to serve you with all humility.
