The SpaceThis beautiful and cozy wooden villa (La Margarita) is located in Antioquia's coffee region, just 1:20 hr from Medellin and 5 km (less than 10 min by car) from the traditional town of Venecia. As it stands in a hill at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) above sea level, it provides a year-round spring weather which can go up to 30°C during a sunny day and a fresh 18-20°C on a fresh night. It is very common (usually every day) to get fog early in the morning, making a beautiful sight. It is a quiet place in the middle of the Andean mountains with amazing views where you can get in close contact with the surrounding nature.
There are several fruit trees in the Villa: avocados, mango, orange, tangerine, lemon, carambolo (starfruit). Feel free to get your share ;)
It is a perfect place for bird watching. You can easily find: Guacharacas (Ortalis erythroptera), parrots, humming birds, Soledad (Blue-crowned motmot), prey birds (little hawks...), etc. Also, the beautiful Morpho Azul butterfly and all kind of insects.
