Living in the countryside in a beautiful natural setting with our 11 dogs we like to share our unique space with artists who have common interests. a residence with us is mainly appropriate for artists who are inspired by nature or even like to work in or with nature and who like dogs.
The small guesthouse has an additional space for writing and whatever beside the bedroom. 3-dimansional work can be realized on a nearby open platform or in the different natural spaces all-around.
At the end we would appreciate a small presentation of the work for invited guests, however we do not receive funding for this project. But we offer the studio for such events.
Flor del Sol is an Art Center run by us, Anita (Architect and artist) and Jose (Anthropologist and artist), in our private living-situation.
Our property covers eight hectares of tropical flora and fauna. The majority of the land is covered in rainforest that we keep in its natural state. The developed portion of our land is home to many fruit trees. The buildings, spread throughout the land are integrated in to the natural setting and our daily life is woven between inside and outside spaces. One of the buildings is a studio space.
Buena Vista is the closest village. It is a 45-minute walk or a quick six Boliviano moto-taxi ride. With cafes and restaurants surrounding a beautiful plaza and colonial architecture throughout the center of town, Buena Vista is a very pleasant place to pass time. The adjacent countryside of rolling hills is covered with divisions of forest, fruit trees, and pastures for livestock. As the name says, there are many beautiful views, especially of the mountains of Amboro National Park, the eastern foothills of the Andes. Another attraction is the Surutu river, which is only three kilometers from the village, and is a nice place to take a refreshing dip.
We neither receive funding nor ask for it. We finance with our own income. Two people help us mantaining the place.
