Hacienda Venecia Coffee Farm, Manizales

A room Hacienda Venecia, with pleasant views out to the coffee fields. 

The well-regarded and well-known Hacienda Venecia is an elegant retreat on a rustic coffee farm surrounded by mountains and nature. 

Visitors have two boutique options. The first is the Coffee Lodge, which is recently renovated and provides views of the coffee fields, river, and mountains. You can also opt for the Main House, which is a more exclusive experience that stays true to its history and origins through the decor and amenities. We recommend the main house, especially for birdwatchers. 

Rooms come with antique beds, storage options, windows, and private bathrooms (except for three rooms that share a bathroom). Each night, a small water pitcher and glasses are placed at the bedside, along with hard candies. Views include the mountains, the garden, and the pool area.

La Casa de Lola Garcia Hotel Boutique, Salamina 

Stop and soak up the beautiful mountain views before you step inside this beautifully renovated house.

Founded by the matron of the family, Garcia Lola was a local philanthropist who worked with the less fortunate citizens of Salamina. Seven years ago, she rallied the pueblo to recreate itself as a tourist destination by encouraging other families to convert their family homes to hotels for visitors. After a two-year renovation, La Casa de Lola Garcia opened to the public. Today it is still run by her family and offers high-end services and quality in northern Caldas. 

Inside the hotel, guests will find beautiful woodwork, a patio with social spaces, a jacuzzi, and well-appointed bedrooms decorated in the traditional style. Be sure to ask about the three different visitor experiences offered by the on-site concierge: "Cafetera," which focuses on local coffee production and preparation; "Urbano," with pueblo tours, history, and cultural traditions; and "Wax Palm", where visitors can take a trip to nearby San Felix to visit a natural wax palm forest.
