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.

  • Colombia was superb. A wonderful variety of scenery and cultures, and people trying their hardest to live normal lives and welcome visitors very genuinely.

    JK, Basingstoke
  • Our favourite organised trip was probably Cocora Valley. Absolutely stunning and the trek was tough, but well worth it. Our guide knew a lot about the wildlife and flowers too

    MB, Oxford

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.
