Area:The cafe and gardens are owned and run by the Guerrero Family, Lopinot, Trinidad. Our Cafe started in 2001, as a place for simple tea or light meals. The genesis of this began in 1984 after the seven Guerrero sisters won the Family Class of the local Music Festival. Following on this many people made their way to our little village nestled at the foothills of the Northern Range to ask our dad for us to sing to them. After many years of serving the accidental guest whatever home made treats we had crafted for ourselves, our sister Bianca, and only brother, Arthur, decided that this was a business opportunity. Thirteen years later we now have a host home, an area where we may host meetings for up to 40 persons, dining for up to 60, opportunity to view at least 12 species of hummingbirds and several other varieties of birds. We are also a site for weddings of up to 100 and in the near future will be an open air venue for lectures and concerts. Our enterprise is growing, three of us are certified chocolate makers so we have now added chocolate making to our list of delicacies crafted here. Some of us are cuisine innovators and in March 2014, we hosted our first annual Cocoa Innovation - A Tasting Event, which gave patrons an opportunity to taste several of our cuisine innovations made directly from the cocoa pulp or bean. Creating from savory to dessert. We are now 210 days from our second cocoa tasting event taking place on February 21, 2015. There will be a lot of interesting, good tasting food available and if you are musical, the family loves to sing together for long hours when we get the chance. We have a Spanish ancestral history and our village is known for the paranda a type of serenading done particularly during the Christmas season. Our village is approximately 30 minutes from the airport and about 1:30 minutes from Port of Spain, the main city. We invite you to visit us for an initial week or two, with an open mind and a warm heart and we will welcome you into ours.
Area: AzoresI am a Portuguese musician living in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I have a countryside house at the beautiful Azores islands (Portugal), where I want to implement and develop an art and culture related project: a meeting point for artists and art-lovers, to create together, learn from each other and get inspired. Also, a place for workshops, residencies and other cultural projects - or simply to relax and enjoy the beauty and quietness of the islands. The 2014 project has been postponed to 2015, so at the moment we have no spots available for work.
