    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The breathtaking views will blow you away as the farm is 2852 feet above sea level with beautiful exotic birds that fly by the house daily and monkeys visit from time to time,

    You will feel like you are living in a zoo on top of the world.

    It is an amazing farm on the edge of a cannon, sometimes the training hall is filled with clouds as we are so high up in the mountains and you can hear nature, the rio and the sounds of wild life all the time.
