From Your Hosts: “We appreciate your interest in staying with us at The Villa Gauguin’s Mountain.
We are a husband and wife who moved to Boquete from the United States 17 years ago and have created our final home on this exquisite property in the Alto Quiel area of Boquete at a refreshing elevation of 1600 meters (5269 ft).
Alto Quiel is a 10 minute scenic drive up the mountain from Central Boquete.
Inspired by the beauty that surrounds us we enjoy the majestic views of Volcan Baru and the Pacific coastline in the distance, and beautiful star filled nights above us. But, mostly it’s the tranquility of life here that attracted us.
We enjoy art and admire the work of the French artist Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) whose Tahiti pictures seem a natural complement to these surroundings. Especially his most celebrated work:
WHERE DO WE COME FROM?
WHAT ARE WE?
WHERE ARE WE GOING?
This huge mural has been beautifully rendered on a central wall in our salon by a local artist, and it keeps us in these eternal questions.
These questions led us to ask how we might share the land, the views, the painting, and the tranquility of this mountain with others. Thus, Gauguin’s Mountain was born.
Well, as happens, one thing led to another and starting with our design and talented local craftsmen, two cabins were constructed of cedar, corotu,and teak woods reflecting both a tropical and mountain style.
Then three Mongolian style dwellings called “Yurts”were erected, each reflecting in its decor the life of Paul Gauguin: born in France, raised in Peru, with an episode in Panama and the most consequential period of his life in Tahiti.
In the process of completing the 5 comfortable rentals (and spending nights in each of them to get them just right for our guests) we realized that for 2 important elements we had to go to the drawing board.
The Results are:
- Rocky´s Cafe and Lounge (named after our Border Collie who joyfully patrols the property)
- Le Maison du Jouir, The House of Pleasure. Named by Gauguin as his final home on the island of Hiva Oa.
These additions to open August, 2018 offer meals, snacks, videos, game tables, a Gauguin library, a boutique and, of course, a place to meet new friends.
Naturally, relaxing in the mountains means sitting in front of a “campfire” and you can do just that under a roofed gazebo under the trees and under the stars.
Integral to our vision for The Villa at Gauguin´s Mountain is a place for musical, cultural, corporate and family events, thus was born La Galerie. Opening September 2018 with an exhibition and sale of art by creative Chiricanos, a portion of the sale price will go to local charities.
Our overall goal is to provide space to renew appreciation of the Arts, Nature and Innovation.
We sincerely hope you will agree that our joyful endeavor serves the above purpose.
We look forward to meeting you!”
