General description

  • Main home
A 2-hour drive from Medellin, our beautiful rural 'finca' in Guatapé is uniquely situated tucked away in a small valley, surrounded by a private stream, bamboo forest, with an open fire-pit and grill. Close to the famous 'Piedra', swimming, waterfalls and eco-trails..

We're looking for a single person or a couple to home-sit LONGER-TERM (2 month) and help to maintain the property and ecological retreat in beautiful Guatapé Colombia. We are building an organic vegetable garden and eco-cabañas (cabin), working with local materials (wood, bamboo, adobe). Looking for people who also speak Spanish preferably. Tasks include maintaining the vegetable garden and do small maintenance around the property (e.g. weeding).

I'm a Dutch-born entrepreneur based in Medellin and founder of this project that includes, organic agriculture, rural co-working and impact workshops in Guatapé, wich is rural Colombia 1.5 hours of Medellin. We have a 4000 m2 terrain with a stream, Bambu (Guadua) and fruit trees.

There's a fully functional and comfortable (small) house on the property with bedroom, study, and full bathroom (hot shower) and separate kitchen, comfortable bed.

Tourism and Leisure

  • Countryside
Guatapé has become a very popular town with Tourist, its major attraction being the lake (la represa) and the huge stone (la Piedra), on which you can lose your breath to the 740-step La Piedra and we walk the length and breadth of the town, making sure the brightly painted homes. You can also take a boat ride through the tiny islands, and we join the locals for some Sunday strolling along the waterfront. The finca is on the back road from the stone, a 15m ride away.
