Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Beautiful summer house in a spectacular location overlooking the South China Sea. The house sits on a very large private property with 2 km of private coastline (of which 600 meters are white sandy beaches). The mountains in the background - covered with rainforest - form a spectacular backdrop.
We like to eat fresh and healthy foods, so we have a large organic garden with vegetables, herbs and spices. We also keep French chickens (free range) for eggs and meat. Freshly caught fish can be had daily from a nearby fisherman's village. We hope our 3 Labradors and 2 Persian cats will make you feel at home the moment you arrive. During the daytime you will most likely be enjoying the surroundings and the beach. At night you will fall asleep, soothed by the sounds of the waves and the rainforest. The house comes with a gardener, a cook and a caretaker. If you wish, the hosts can also cook for you. My wife Theresa is very talented and highly passionate about cooking. She does wonders with all the garden fresh ingredients.
All rooms are en suite and have a view of the ocean (from your bed). We have built several private hideaways around the house, where you can enjoy the view and the sea breeze with a book, a cocktail or a cup of tea. Or just have a lazy afternoon nap in a hammock.
Other amenities of the house include a gym, a petanque court, a bar, a yoga platform/view deck and an outdoor kitchen. Planned amenities for the near future are a Zen Garden, a wood fired brick oven and a zip line that will take you from your balcony straight to the beach.
We are leading a comfortable yet low impact life style. We produce our own veggies and meat, make our own virgin coconut oil, natural bug repellents, yoghurt and cheese. We cook using only the freshest ingredients straight from our garden. We avoid chemical additives and processed foods. If you wish to learn or participate in our organic farming, you are very much welcome. We have some live stock to tend to as well (cows, pigs, goats, water buffaloes, chickens).
To help keep our carbon footprint low, we ask all our visitors to plant one tree each. Either a long living fruit tree or a tropical hardwood tree. We provide the seedlings (at cost) and make sure the tree will prosper.
Our place is ideal for:
* Families with children
* Couples looking to spend quality time together in paradise (hidden away from the rest of the world)
* City dwellers looking to reconnect with Nature (from the comfort of a serviced villa)
* People who favor a healthy life style

The Palawan region
Known as "The last Frontier", Palawan is a haven for nature lovers, environmentalists and those in search of exceptionally beautiful and often exclusive locations. Palawan is without doubt the best preserved and the most spectacularly beautiful of all the large islands in the Philippines. Natural beauty is abound. Crystal clear waters with abundant underwater life, untouched rainforest, endless white beaches, friendly people (both indigenous and immigrants from other provinces)... Palawan has it all !
The Villa is located on the West Coast of Palawan. Unspoiled by mass tourism and little known, except to the locals, this is where the most stunningly beautiful beaches of the island can be found. The rainforest remains intact. Indigenous people, who have lived here for generations, have long kept the beauty of the area a secret. The roughness of the terrain has kept main stream tourism out. It is now yours to enjoy from the comfort of our Villa.
