    Description

    Hola
    We are an intercultural and interracial couple. My Girlfriend is an Afro-Colombian from the cost and I am a retire Swiss.

    We are located in the heart of the coffee region “Eje Cafetera. Our pueblo “Marsella Risaralda” is one of the most beautiful traditional coffee villages of Colombia. Our Finca is a traditional coffee farm with 50’000 coffee trees on 10 cuadras (70’000m2). It climbs from 1400 meters above sea level 100 meter higher up to 1500 meters above sea level. Now we are converting it in a more natural place with lots of fruit trees, native plants, large completely natural spaces where one can watch birds and other animals, hiking trails, a camping next to a bamboo-forest.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Not only can one get to know the Colombian coffee culture, but can also carry out a wide variety of creative work depending on one skills and interests.
    Colombia has just little local culture to offer, since in general the population does not cultivate its traditions very much. But the Colombians' share abundantly their virulent zest for life and their cordial openness with you. One is treated everywhere immediately like a friend or a family member.
