Available for extended stays. This beautiful hacienda located just 4 km. from Suarez, Tolima has been lovingly restored and remodeled. Situated in over 50 hectares of tropical hills, it is a great place for nature walks, horseback riding, swimming and bird watching.
The house has been constructed in the typical Tolima vernacular, with covered verandas on three sides providing alternative spaces to rest with hammocks, lounge chairs and tables. There is an auxiliar living and dining area with views of the garden and the large swimming pool, just a few steps away. Additionally, there is a covered kiosk near the swimming pool with ping pong table, barbecue and other amenities.
With only one floor, El Capote has a comprehensive and fully integrated social area (kitchen, two dining rooms and two living rooms) and a wing with 5 double bedrooms, each with its own bathroom “en suite”. The bedrooms are spacious and have closets and air conditioning. There is one that is bit smaller, but can accommodate two children, an employee or a single person. The mattresses are top notch, as are the linens and other furnishings. Each bedroom has private access to the covered terrace with chairs and hammocks.
The house is cool in part because of its high ceilings and ceiling fans; and also has windows with wooden shutters and screens to keep out the mosquitos in the early evening. El Capote is a cheerful, pleasant house with all the amenities. Even the place settings of china can be mixed and matched at each guest’s whim.
One can arrange horseback riding outings in the area at an additional cost. Please consult our office in advance. There are also lots of activities nearby such as the Magdalena River in chalupa (a typical wooden canoe with motor) or inner tubes, the lovers’ waterfall, and the town of La Chamba (famous for its black pottery). The town of El Espinal is about a 15 minute drive away. There you can buy foods such as “achiras”, “quesillo”, fresh oatmeal and stuffed pig… all are typical plates from the región of Tolima.
