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.

What our clients say

  • Highlight?: Difficult!  As a general tourist, probably the Salt Cathedral, bur personally the return to Pereira after 42 years!

    JPM, London
  • It was a great trip, a nice balance of activity and free time and we felt we saw several different sides of Colombia. 

    MJ, E14
  • Highlight?: The coffee region and Cartagena were both spectacular to visit. Mompos was lovely and worth making the effort to get to.

    IR, London
  • Highlights?: Coffee region and Tayrona, lovely people everywhere 

    JM, St Albans
  • It was a superb trip, I don’t think our feedback really conveyed how much we enjoyed Colombia particularly. It really exceeded our expectations. Los Llanos was super superb.

    SM, Helensburgh
  • Highlight?: The local knowledge of the guides and their willingness to adapt to our needs. We were taken to places that were not part of the schedule. E.g. Local restaurants

Our Expert's Opinion

I really enjoyed the informal, friendly atmosphere of this hacienda with its well-stocked honesty bar and communal dining tables with plentiful local food. It’s worth pre-booking onto one of their private tours around the coffee farm, the guides are very informative.
