Tunas & Cabras THE WONDERFUL CHOTA VALLEY * Visit Tunas y Cabras´ website by clicking on the logo Texto y fotos: László Károlyi The Chota Valley is an example of regular physical activity, water consumption with alkaline properties, long hours of sleep lulled by the warmth of the unusually beautiful geographical context, where to the rhythm of marimba we discover a fundamental aspect of well-being and imperishable health. Joy is permeated in all aspects of life that the inhabitants of this legendary Valley profess. No one in this place spares smiles at any interaction we have participated in, and that is what you will experience in this wonderful environment where Hotel Tunas y Cabras is located. The centerpiece of its design is the impressive infinity pool, whose water comes from natural springs, is heated with solar energy, and surrounded by an oasis of greenery generated by the absolutely efficient use of water that the managers of this beautiful place manage. Juan Acosta, young entrepreneur proudly shows us the successes achieved through the joint family effort that his father Fernando has promoted in him and his brothers. It reveals the magic of nature combined with the most pleasant accommodations, in an environment that motivates activity and rest. Tunas y Cabras offers a gastronomic proposal worthy of a Pasha, framed in a magnificent restaurant with a privileged view of nature, so much that it invites us to admire it while time passes without feeling it. On top of this impressive spot we find a viewpoint, where starry nights are joyfully experienced in endless conversations on infinite topics between guests, which usually end in the outdoors Jacuzzi. At Tunas and Cabras you enjoy the privileges of life. One of the main attractions of a farm that promotes agro tourism is to feed on the crops from the site. Tunas and Cabras, where aloe is grown, is no exception, they even make the wonderful shampoos and soaps that are used in the hotel. To rest while on vacation is a very important issue, because it allows us to regenerate the tissues that wear off during daily activities. We refer to relaxation the body deserves, as well as the mind and spirit, which is sufficient reason to have a routine to rest that becomes almost a ritual. A night spent in one of the 20 beautiful suites designed among the gardens under the shade of regional trees, enjoying a real rest, is a wonderful gift to travellers. Obviously a suitable mattress is essential to sleep peacefully, and also consider that the sheets are made of natural materials such as cotton or silk, and that the pillows and quilt are made of goose feathers. Of course it is an important investment made by the owners, but if we consider that we spend a third of our life in bed, it is more than justifiable, even more so when we are in days of leisure and fun. The ritual to sleep must be sacred. The room needs to be free of electromagnetic radiation, which implies that you need to remove the television, radio and cell phone from the bedroom, since this not only helps to sleep properly, but also improves communication with the person with whom the room is being shared. The dream ritual should be inspired by the observation of nature and its magical effects. It is necessary to generate a nest for sleeping, which translated into the reality of human beings can be understood as wrapping in the quilt, placing the pillows between your legs and experiencing what works for each one of us. This way we all generate a ritual to recharge body, mind and spirit.
