Description: Llama Deara Ranch is a regenerative ranchito with client facilities, in Medanales village in the Abiquiu region of Northern New Mexico. Located on the Chama River, Abiquiu enjoys the contributions of over two thousand years made by the Native tribes and Pueblo Indians, with Spanish influence via Mexico starting four centuries ago. Modern Northern New Mexico is multicultural, with Hispanic, American Indian, and Anglo residents. For some, the Abiquiu region is the spirit center of New Mexico.
The ranch covers four acres that extend to the banks of the Chama River, with its spectacular views beyond. The land is graced with vegetable and flower gardens, pastures, and meditation paths and places to rest and reflect.
Clients may enjoy a variety of special sites and activities on the four-acre
ranch: picnicking at the bosque - the forest at the bank of the beautiful Chama
meditating in the apple grove;
browsing the flower and vegetable gardens in the shade of
giant cottonwoods; enjoying the acequia, an aqueduct that irrigates Llama Deara
and the neighboring farms and ranches, with its quaint bridges; and so on.
