Finca el Delirio
Armenia (The coffee region, Colombia)
El Delirio is a charming traditional finca just above the town of Montenegro close to Armenia. It has a small, colourful garden and pool, and there are lovely views of the snow-capped mountains in the distance (on a good day). Run by a local family, the finca has been immaculately decorated with family heirlooms, fine period furniture and plenty of homely touches. There is an elegant dining room that leads onto an outdoor terrace with lovely, light wooden furniture at the back of the house. The kitchen is wonderful with traditional tiles and a warm, authentic feel.
Visits to the coffee triangle.
There are 8 simple, en-suite rooms spread throughout the finca, 5 rooms in the mainhouse and three in a separate, more modern block.
El Delirio is a lovely traditional finca that looks and feels the part though it is just off the main road and can be a touch noisy at night.
