The technique of the “Barhareque” construction, which uses bamboo and clay on the walls and clay tiles on the roof, is very typical of this region. The house is painted in shades of red and white to contrast with the lush green surroundings. A balcony surrounds the entire property where you can admire the beauty and exuberance of the coffee landscape.
Next to the house is a “kiosk”, a symbol of the surrounding ecosystem, build with local bamboo (Bambusa guadua) and Coffee Region Walnut timber (Cordia alliodora). The building was designed by architect Simon Velez who recognized worldwide for his work, in particular for the innovative use of bamboo native to this region.
The Main House offers six spacious bedrooms from 14m² to 28m², whereas three of them have a private en-suite bathroom. The other rooms share two fully equipped separate bathrooms. The interior of the rooms is basic but there are many accessories that need to be discovered all around the house. It is about the little things that make a once in a lifetime experience.
The Main House is surrounded by a variety of social spaces for you to relax and enjoy the lush landscape. You may use the bamboo kiosk or the seating area around the pool to play games; At the Iguana’s Balcony or the bird watching terrace (Birds Lounge) you can lay down into one of our comfortable hammocks and read a book, take a nap or even observe a variety of birds around the trees. Or just look into the far and enjoy the beauty of the landscape and start day-dreaming. But for sure on of your best experiences on the Hacienda Venecia will be an early bird watch around the Main House. You just need to walk into the gardens and observe – you will see colorful birds wherever you look. And we will guarantee that you will never forget the look into a hummingbird’s eye. The Main House hosts home to our beautiful peacocks that will amazed by their dance or with their jumping on and off the trees.
