“You should go to Farmville in San Fabian. It’s a place inspired by The Hobbit movie.”
That’s what every Dagupeño would suggest for me to do every single time I come home in my hometown. As a result I immediately packed my ring to meet Gollum. Lol. Kidding! Farmville San Fabian is located in a secluded rural area where agriculture is the star of the show. A very spacious rice field scenery complemented by a fresh atmosphere from the farm.
Nestled in the middle of a rice farm is an earth-covered home resembling to the famous movie The Hobbit. Around the earth-covered homes are very instagrammable photoshoot areas. Perfect for that province vibe! And of course, Instagram.
Moreover, Farmville offers a variety of things to do and enjoy. For instance, samgyupsal is available in the main house, kawa bath for guests and roaming around the farm to take some province-inspired photos!
The Hobbit Themed Accommodations
Get ready to experience a unique staycation inside an earth-covered home equipped with the modern amenities like air conditioned rooms, hot & cold shower, flat screen TV, wifi, king size bed, and a small patio.
According to Kuya Jordan, caretaker of Farmville, there are currently 2 homes available for staycation. Good news is they are planning to maximize in the future and add 10 more homes to accommodate guests.
Moreover, each home has its own patio where guests can sit and relax while enjoying a scenic view of the farm. You can also have some coffee and snacks delivered to your own patio. Also, there’s a kawa bath in each patio which will be perfect early in the morning.
Your Favorite Samgyupsal In The Middle Of A Farm
Craving for samgyupsal? Farmvile got you! No need to go to the city to look for Korean grilled meat because it is available in this modern agricultural farm. And I highly recommend their kimchi!
The samgyupsal is located in the main house which is their restaurant and activity place. Each corner of the restaurant has a very IG-worthy spot. Also, there are board games available and a giant jenga blocks. One thing is for sure, there’s no single dull moment or corner inside this house.
Note: Samgyupsal is available by appointment for day-tour guests. Make sure to book your schedule through their Facebook page.
Farm To Plate Breakfast + Milktea
Good news for milktea lovers! For guests who booked for an overnight stay, there is an inclusion of breakfast and milktea. And for day-tour guests, you can try Farmville’s milktea for PHP 150.00 each. I recommend their taro milktea!
There’s nothing healthier than a farm to plate meal in a farm. I love how the farm theme also works for the food.
No Need To Go To Rizal Or Antique For Kawa Bath
Kawa bath originated in the province of Antique in Visayas. Although there are a lot of imitations made around Manila like in Rizal or Tagaytay, we also have it here in our province! So if you’re looking for a relaxing experience of kawa bath, prepare to cook yourself here. Lol. Don’t forget to bring your bathing attire!
A hot kawa bath is a perfect way to spend the morning in the farm. I suggest to start around 5:30 am to 7:00 am. Don’t worry because the staff will have it setup for you! Oh, and milk will be added in the bath too. Yey!
Experience A Province Vibe In The Farm
Obviously, Farmville offers a province vibe! Aside from it is located in a secluded area, Farmville has a few spots that can give you a nostalgic feeling back in the province. Wells, scarecrows, mud paddles, and lush greenery. Sounds familiar? Yeap! Those are one of the things to expect when you are in a province.
If I were you, I’d prepare for that farm-vibe OOTD! And snap some awesome photos here. Lol.
Last but not the least, the most obvious reason why teenagers and early generations would want to come here. The IG-worthy spots. Around the farm, you can check out some awesome spots for photoshoot.
There’s the instagrammable yellow door in the middle of the farm which looks like a magic door that will take you to wonderland. Not unless your feet falls in the mud then that’s not wonderland, isn’t it? Lol.
Another is the small bridge. I really like how it is designed to have water below. I find it relaxing to just sit in the middle and wait for the sunset.
