Hacienda Castilla, Pereira

Relax in an original hacienda with extensive gardens, established trees and an atmosphere – and structure – that seems to have changed little from the old days of colonial Colombia.

The gardens tempt you out from the shade of the genteel veranda with the perfume of lilies and bougainvillea. So you step away from the hacienda with its Caucana architecture, its cloistered courtyard with twinkling fountain, its thick walls and graceful windows, and into a world of butterflies, birds of paradise and bejewelled reptiles.

Beyond the Castilla’s extensive grounds lie orchards of abundant mango, mandarin and orange trees. Not to mention groves of more exotic fruits like loquats, lychees, guava and sapodilla – a berry-like fruit believed to originate in Yucatan. Choose to stay at the Hacienda Castilla during your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Colombia and you will be able to relax in a traditional hacienda and gain a glimpse of the pace of life during the country’s colonial era.
