Food on Farm Peace and Love
Both the cottage and the guest suite have fully equipped kitchen (included Italian-style espresso machine) that allow guests to be self-sufficient.
Since Farm Peace & Love is located on the north side of the island, we want to offer our guests some independence and let them choose where they will eat each day. Both the cottage and the guest suite have fully equipped kitchen (included Italian-style espresso machine) that allow guests to be self-sufficient.
When guests arrive, they will find the kitchen fully stocked with foods for preparing breakfast (tea, coffee, milk, fresh coconut bread, organic jams and jellies produced on the farm, eggs, salt, sugar and oil). Guests will receive products that are produced on the farm, as available, but other items for cooking must be restocked from the village shops
There are several shops in the village where basic foods can be purchased (feel free to bring your own food if you have any alimentary restrictions or special needs), and there are several small restaurants where you can try the island cooking. Olive oil and coffee blend for “espresso” are not available in the island shops but can be purchased at Farm Peace & Love. For the daily shopping, our guests can take advantage of boat rides to the village, when available.
There is no restaurant at Farm Peace & Love. Occasionally, Paola will cook dinner, as a option for guests when reserved one day in advance. She prepares tasty homemade Italian food dinners, using the organic products grown on the Farm. For vegetarians, the Farm’s vegetable garden provides the ingredients for a good choice of vegetarian dishes. A selection of Italian wines is also available.
Please remember that dinner is not available every night, so guests will need to either cook meals or walk to the village where restaurants are located.
Dinner costs US $20 per person (does not include beverages).
What Some Guests Said…
Dear friends-Paola and Bing.
Thank you kindly for your wonderful hospitality. You really have created a very special place here in Farm Peace & Love. Casita Tranquilla, the cottage, has been just that – tranquilla. It has been the perfect place for us to end our 2 months of travel. The days here seem to just slide one into the next, creating a peaceful, easy rhythm, day breaks, cock’s crowing to greet the day, sun climb in the sky and shine on trees and sea, cool breeze marks the air and so begins another day. Breakfast on the porch offers great bird watching-wish I knew the names of all these colorful feathered friends, and afternoon and evenings offers shade from the heat and sky blanketed with stars. Ah, and the moon, so shine so bright and wake you while you sleep. Sweet dreams and sweet aromas wafting in the air. And then, of course, there is the sea, the blue, green, warm wonderful healing waters of Mar Caribe. Certainly the most beautiful beach on the island is right out your front door. How lucky you are, if you believe in luck. Actually, blessed is more like it. Again, thank you for sharing your little piece of Paradise with us. Paola, thank you for your patient with me, during our correspondence. And thank you Bing for all the goodies, fruit, coco root and bread-fruit, you brought us. But mostly I just want to thank you for being who you are kind, generous, bright and welcoming. It’s been a pleasure meeting you both.
Blessings and peace,
