A charming and tranquil boutique hotel several blocks from Villa de Leyva’s main square.

Casa Terra is a restored family home built in typical Spanish colonial style with whitewashed walls, terracotta roofs, and wooden balconies. Rooms are spacious, filled with light and decorated individually with rural Colombian motifs.

An excellent breakfast is served al fresco and although there isn’t a restaurant, you’re only a short walk away from plenty of options in town. Loungers and seating can be found dotted around the pretty gardens, and a cosy sitting room with a fireplace is the perfect antidote for those chilly altitude evenings.
