I am an American businessman from Chicago with 20 plus years of experience living and working in Colombia. I first traveled to Medellin in 1993 pursing castings for a family business back in the States. I fell in love with the country, the city, and people.
Pat purchased this chateau / country house in 2000
Beautiful views and one of the few ways today to be able to disconnect and relax.
The classic colonial Colombian architecture brings you back to another time.
Finca Los Lagos in Marsella, Antioquia is the ultimate get away if one truly wants to relax and get away from the stress of constantly being 'connected'. There is not a better place to spend time with friends, family and loved ones WITHOUT being connected via cell phone, computer, or satellite. Go back to when a family trip meant spending time with family and not having to compete against machines. We all remember the days of actually sitting around talking, playing games, and just reminiscing about the past. Finca Los Lagos is it.
If you need a break from being connected to the office, tired of the concrete jungle, sick of traffic, noise, blackberrys, iphones, laptops, emails, and the rat race of modern society, then Finca Lagos is the perfect place to recharge your personal inner battery.
Begin your mornings above the clouds with a cup of real Colombia coffee, spend time reading a good book in the sun by the pool, saddle up in the late afternoon to ride horseback into Marsella, tie your horse up on the hitch post and enjoy a cold local Colombian beer before riding back during a beautiful Andean sunset on your way to the finca.
Local couple on hand to cook your meals, organize your rooms, saddle up your horses, ride into town with you all at no charge. We only ask you tip our Mayordomo and his wife upon leaving.
