The Weekend Farmer


Nowadays, we are so used to urban living that even when we travel, we take that lifestyle with us. However, sometimes, we want to disconnect from the modern world and go back to a simpler life – no pollution, cities, or technology.

Go to The Weekend Farmer in Alfonso, Cavite, where you can experience rural life during your stay and maybe even harvest your own vegetables.


Minimalist nature style

After passing by the farm and greenery, you’ll get to stay in a kubo-inspired loft that’s simple, but still gives homey feels as if you’re in the province.

Once inside, the room is set up in a minimalist style with beds on bamboo frames, small windows, and a wooden set of stairs that lead to the balcony or patio.

While some rooms have air-conditioning, kubo lofts let you enjoy the cool nature breeze at night so you won’t need air-conditioning or fans. Nevertheless, fans are available if you want the extra breeze.

Kubo lofts cost P5,600 (~USD107.02) per night while the other rooms range from P3,450-P5,695 (~USD65.93-USD108.83) per night.


Farm-to-table meal and craft beer sampling
