Hacienda San José was built in 1888 by Francisco Mejia Jaramillo, great grandfather of the current owners, and is one of the most ancient and better-preserved houses in the area.
Set amid lush vegetation in a vibrant coffee-producing area, the hacienda is a traditional house of the 'eje cafetero' whose history dates back three centuries.
The 'tapia pisada' walls of the first floor date back to colonial times and are of Spanish influence, whereas the second floor is built in the style of the Antioquia colonisation.
There are eleven bedrooms, all with private bathrooms, a swimming pool and jacuzzi - and massage and anti-stress treatments are offered. The restaurant serves Colombian and international cuisine and the hotel will organise horse rides on request.
