Règlement intérieur

This cozy room crafted of local pine is nestled on the third floor of the house, away from the daily comings and goings. There's a bathroom shared by two single rooms, and a shared kitchenette one floor down. The room is 2.7x2.1 meters. The bed is 1.65m wide and there's 1.4m of space between the bed and the wall. That's typical Sagada architecture: we're an active culture and it's assumed that people are out all day, so a bedroom is just for sleeping! There's a small table and a seat.

Le logement
We're located just under a kilometer from the center of Sagada, close enough for easy access, far enough to be away from most of the crowd! We're on a small hilltop with views across the lower end of Echo Valley and the limestone formations and pine trees of Kanip-aw Ridge. Thre's a selection of restaurants in the neighborhood! We're well off the road and there's a pine grove with bonfire area just outside the house. My mother produces homemade bread at her bakery at the bottom of the hill, and you're welcome to drop in and share the smell and a loaf fresh from the oven. We'll serve you bread and Sagada Arabica coffee on arrival!

Apart from our incomparable flexibility to our guests' needs, there are a few more reasons why you might want to stay at our bnb:

- Our place has a picturesque, elevated setting surrounded by pine trees.

- Peace Corp volunteers usually stay here so you're bound to know interesting individuals with rich stories.

- You get first dibs on some Ysagada bread, fresh from my mom's trusty oven. It's the yummy and filling wheat bread that you might see being sold around town. And the oven, too, will keep you toasty during cold nights.

- We also coordinate outdoor tour packages, courtesy of Steve, my hubby. I also used to be one of the SEGA (Sagada Environmental Guides Association) guides; I could give you my recommendations on the best routes in and around town.

Accès des voyageurs
You'll have access to the upstairs kitchenette and bathrooms, the downstairs kitchen and dining area, and the outside area around the house: basically everything but the other bedrooms.

Autres remarques
We have well defined seasons but nothing is absolute. Usually, it's cool and clear from October to Feb; we can get a rainy day but it's usually clouds and drizzle, not a downpour. From late Feb through late May it's warmer and dry. Sometime around late April or early May afternoon rains start, and by June it's the rainy season, until late Sept. A typical rainy season pattern is sunny mornings and rainy afternoons, but if the SW monsoon is strong there are times when it just rains! Typhoons come July-Sept, or rarely in Oct-Dec. They are tracked well in advance, see www.typhoon2000.ph for storm forecasts. If there's an active typhoon it's best not to travel: hunker down and wait it out!

We don't provide soap or shampoo. Nearby stores have both if you didn't bring!

We don't serve breakfast, though we can usually provide coffee and bread.

The town is very safe and violent crime is almost unheard of. Walking around is not a problem! There is a curfew and businesses close by 10, often earlier if there aren't many tourists in town. Local people tend to wake early and sleep early!

You'll have to register at the tourist office in town. If you send your names, ages, and nationalities we can do this for you! There's a P35/person tourist fee.

Guides are required at many of the tourist sites. Many Sagada sites involve caves or areas near cliffs so guides are required for safety. We can organize guides (and we'll choose guides we know are among the best in town) or you can get them at the tourist office in the center of town. We recommend the SEGA guides available at the center; it's the oldest organization with the most rigorous training requirements.

If you go out walking without a guide, tell us which way you're going and when you plan to be back, as you would in any mountain area. If someone goes missing the guides and the community will look for them, day or night, rain or shine, until they're found. It helps to know where to look!

This is a conservative, traditional community and very revealing clothing and major public displays of affection are frowned upon. Best to save it for the private space.

Sagada, Cordillera Administrative Region, Philippines

Sagada is a small town nestled in a forested valley 1500m above sea level, in the center of the Luzon Cordillera. It's famous for hiking, caving, mountain scenery, indigenous culture, and year-round cool air!

Sagadans belong to the Applai Kankanaey indigenous community. We are quite modern in many respects and pride ourselves on our education and fluency in English, but we are also very traditional in many ways and we take our culture seriously. Sagadans are not allowed to dress in traditional costume for posed photographs or to stage rituals for visitors. Some rituals, notably weddings, are open to all. Others are quite private. If you see ritual activities going on, usually involving groups in traditional costume, you may observe at a distance but do not come too close. Ask permission before taking photos or video. Start with respect and everything will be fine! It's a good idea to ask anyone before taking pictures, especially old people.

Sagada's first exposure to the outside world came from American Episcopalian missionaries in the early 20th century. Unlike most of the Philippines, there is no real Spanish influence and the prevailing religion is Episcopal, not Catholic. Sagada is a highly egalitarian community and even in the pre-colonial culture, there was no tradition of "chiefs" or of inherited power. Communities were governed by councils of individuals who earned respect.

Sagada does not permit non-Sagadans to own land or do business. All businesses in town are locally owned: no fast food joints or chain convenience stores!

St Theodore's Hospital is able to handle most routine illness and injury but does not have a large staff of specialists. We suggest avoiding situations that might lead to neurosurgery!

I was born and raised in Sagada and I'm a proud Igorot of the Applai Kanakaney indigenous community! I left Sagada to attend college in Baguio, worked a while in the city, and missed home. I came back, worked for several years as a mountain and cave guide, and took up the craft of pottery in 2001. I was hooked at once and it's become a lifelong passion. My work has been displayed in galleries, museums, and craft fairs in Baguio, Subic, Manila, and the USA. Aside from pottery, I'm passionate about the outdoors. I love gathering edible mushrooms in the forest in the rainy season, hiking around the mountains, and discovering new scenic spots to share with our guests! Small pleasures make the day, like fresh bread and good coffee in the morning. No matter how many pots I make my masterpieces will always be my two boys, Chico and David. Family is always first! I love seeing old friends and making new ones, and helping visitors discover the magic of my home town.

Pendant votre séjour
We're always willing to spend time with our guests and to help them build a better understanding of our place, its history and culture, and the many activities it offers. I've been a guide for many years, my mom is also a guide as well as a baker, and my husband guides canyoning, mt biking, and other adventure sports trips when he's not writing and editing, so we're well equipped to help you build a local itinerary that suits you. We're also very familiar with the Cordillera region and can help you plan regional travels: Sagada is a great hub for seeing the area!

I'm usually at the pottery during the day, but I'm at home in the mornings and evenings. My husband works at home and is usually there. My mom is in the house, the bakery, or around town. My kids will chime in with their own unique perspective on local life. There's usually someone around to assist!
