Hacienda Venecia is a working coffee plantation which welcomes visitors in a sociable atmosphere.
Hacienda Venecia is a working coffee plantation which has opened its doors to visitors with the sort of friendly welcome you can expect from Colombians. You almost feel like you are visiting friends. In fact, the idea is that guests mingle socially: meals are taken communally around a kitchen table. The wraparound veranda with hammocks and rocking chairs is the perfect place to sit back and relax enjoying the tranquillity.
There are half a dozen brightly decorated guest rooms in the main house which has a very rural feel as it is constructed from bahareque, similar to adobe – mud, straw and brick all feature. The buildings are surrounded by pleasant gardens featuring a pool, as-well as bird-spotting trails.
Tours of the coffee plantation are offered, you have to pre-book a private one or you can join in a group when you are there.
