Quinta El Carmen and La Casona

La Casona

Charming sister properties within the serene grounds of a rural coffee estate, both converted from traditional houses.

The sister properties La Casona and Quinta El Carmen are both traditional houses that have been refurbished and converted into charming accommodation within the serene grounds of El Carmen coffee estate. While the surroundings feel decidedly rural, the town of Ataco is within walking distance, making this a good choice for those seeking the tranquillity of the countryside without wishing to feel cut off.

La Casona has just six rooms, while Quinta El Carmen has three self-catering rooms each with living room, dining room and terrace, as well as one en suite. You can also opt for full board or dinner pre-booked in advance. Décor is authentically Central American, with tiled floors, busy patterns and a cheery feel.
