Villa Mary in Adjuntas, PR is such an amazing magical location that I decided to open it up to the public a few years ago because many friends and family members insisted on having others experience an authentic Puerto Rican mountain lifestyle from a pass era .
Villa Mary has been in my family- The Ferre' Family for almost 100 years.Built in 1918 by my great grandmother Mary Aguayo Casals as a summer retreat for her family.She was the wife of Cuban industrialist Antonio Ferre' Bacallao .They had 6 children.
At Villa Mary you will experience going back to another time, one that is stress free and relaxed surrounded by the emerald green mountains- La Cordillera Central. My great aunt Sor. Isolina Ferre', a missionary nun was the caretaker before me and used the villa for spiritual retreats. She loved coming here. I also love coming to Villa Mary with my family and friends to relax, converse, walk in the garden,listen to the coquis and create artwork.I am now it's steward and want it to survive for future generations.Once you are here - you are surrounded by it's beauty and peace. The waterfall and river is just 10 mins away by car. You can take a 5 min walk into town for freshly baked bread ,coffee and visit Casa Pueblo- the local museum and community center. Being in Villa Mary will give you and your family a chance to spend quality time together.The temperature is always cool year round.I am always inspired as an artist when I am in Puerto Rico.
My property managers Anibal and Tita will take very good care of you and your family.
You will never forget this fabulous experience of being at Villa Mary and returning to a pass era in a Puerto Rican mountain estate that you and your family with cherish!
Come visit us soon!
