An inspiring model of sustainable tourism, this is an intimate, unique property in the highlands of Santa Cruz Island devoted to discovering the Galápagos through family adventures and well-being.

In the highlands of volcanic Santa Cruz Island, where giant tortoises roam free, you’ll find this eco-friendly property, comprising three cosy modern villas.  The property, which has its own coffee farm, is run by its friendly proprietors, whose vision is to create a space where you can relax and discover the Galápagos at your own pace, and where families can enjoy a bonding educational experience as well as offering youngsters extraordinary adventures.

Each villa has at least two bedrooms, leisure area and kitchen; your chef comes to prepare your nutritious organic meals there and you eat in situ. There are modern bathrooms and plenty of space in which to unwind after a day out exploring: you choose what you want to do from a menu of activities including wildlife discoveries, walks, kayaking, swimming, snorkelling and even cookery lessons. Your surroundings have been left wild, the true habitat of the giant tortoises which roam right up to your door, accompanied by a soundtrack of birdsong. Truly a magical place.
