- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Finca Villa Nora is a heritage country house with more than 120 years of history and tradition in coffee culture. The house was built in the earlier 20th century and in the last two decades has been refurbished to provide the best accommodation for tourists in the coffee growing axis (Eje Cafetero - Quindio). The two-story house is a great example of the Antioquian Colonization Coffee Architecture with spacious corridors, terraces and a wide wraparound verandah. It provides wonderful views of our preserved Bamboo Forest (Guadua) and the majestic Andes Mountains which give visitors a unique sunrise and sunset experiences. Finca Villa Nora (finca is another word for hacienda) is located in Quimbaya in a perfect spot that's equidistant from the two main Park attractions in the region: The National Coffee Park (Parque Nacional del Cafe) and PANACA (Parque Nacional de la Cultura Agropecuaria) both only 20 minutes drive from the Finca, to where we can arrange transportation. The house is surrounded with more than 600 square meters of gardens with tropical uniquely different species of flowers and plants including 30 different species of heliconias and orchids, exotic trees and stunning butterflies and birds. We also provide a free tour of our coffee plantation or if you just want to relax you can enjoy all of this by the pool. We like to treat our guests with the highest quality of food that includes locally grown products and fruits like avocado, oranges, clementines grown in our garden and on arrival you can also try our famous coffee cocktail. During the last 20 years, Finca Villa Nora has been honoured to receive special guests including Juan Valdez the Colombian coffee icon; and high UNESCO diplomats who made the decision to grant the region a world heritage title - The Coffee Cultural Landscape (Paisaje Cultural Cafetero) for which we feel both, honoured and inspired. If you want to explore the Coffee Growing axis or simply relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings, there is no better place than Finca Villa Nora. ... more less
