Everything is now fast-paced – from the amount of work we need to accomplish to the food we consume in between busy schedules. If you catch yourself in need of a break from this lifestyle, go for a short drive to Cavite and relish slow days in nature at The Weekend Farmer:


Learn slow living at The Weekend Farmer

Nestled just a few minutes from Tagaytay, The Weekend Farmer is a two-hectare property in the highlands of Alfonso, Cavite. Home to perennial trees and a stunning view of Talamitam, the farm is divided into four zones: a. guesthouse and kitchen; b. veggie patch and bee house; c. fruit-bearing trees and livestock; and c. plantations for bananas, coconuts, and coffee. The farm began in 2006, with various trees constantly being planted across the property.

Two years later, the owner added the guesthouse and gazebo to let guests experience the wonders nature has to offer, including this idyllic kubo.

This loft kubo is one of the bigger stays at The Weekend Farmer. The 24-sqm space can accommodate up to six guests per stay, with an additional fee of P950 per head in excess of four pax. Both grounds are sleeping areas; you’ll be sleeping on mattresses on bamboo bedframes that matches the aesthetic of the kubo. There’s no air conditioning in the kubo; the surrounding forest is enough to keep the space cool and comfy during your stay!

There’s no kitchen at the kubo, but you can order additional farm-to-table lunch and dinner at P499 per head. You can also bring your snacks and water, which are subject to corkage fees.


Guest access and activities

A trip to The Weekend Farmer isn’t complete without getting a first-hand experience of farm life. If your dream retirement involves owning a farm, you can get a taste of what it’s like through the guided tour where you’ll visit a bee shelter, vegetable garden, and plantations and learn about vermiculture. You can also go for the Pick-and-Pay experience where you’ll be harvesting fresh veggies to bring home!

There are plenty of hammocks and lounge chairs around the farm as well – it won’t be difficult to pick your nook for meditating, praying, or simply enjoying a new book.

At night, you can also pay for a bonfire set up to complete the healing outdoor experience.

Rates start at P5,600 per night. Book your stay here.

    These novel “farm stays” craze are nice, new experiences to traveling but are ridiculously priced. In the guise of experiencing a rustic, rural setting, they offer the bare minimum: no airconditioning, shared outdoor toilets, futons on the floor. And yet, the price per night is the same as that in a well-appointed 3 or 4 star hotel, WITH BREAKFAST!
    It’s a rip-off, if I may say. I just stayed in a large, comfortable, airconditioned hotel in Marivelez, Bataan for ₱2,600 with free buffet breakfast for two pax! Farm stay b&b owners should rethink their pricing and come up with something fairer to guests. The Lotus Pod resort at Bay, Laguna charges around 8K per night but the luxurious ambience and facilities won’t make you feel shortchanged.
