Santa Elena is a "corregimiento", close to Medellin, where you can enjoy beautiful nature and local culture. You will find this place colorful in many aspects: flowers and birds are everywhere, and the people are friendly and warm. Located at 2600 m altitude, too high for mosquitoes, we love this place so much that we built a home and added a cabin to share the pleasure of staying in Santa Elena with you. Our cozy cabin can comfortably accommodate you and others to experience this magical place

The space
Many guests have commented that our cabin exceeds their expectations. Although the outside may look plain, the inside provides a lot of space and you will feel peaceful and relaxed. A perfect romantic getaway for a couple or casual stay for a small group. The large 17000 m2 terrain where the cabin is located is next to a natural preserve: Go for a walk to the "mirador" to see Medellin from the the top of the mountain. We have a private gate in the corner of the land or direct access to the forest ( Reserva Forestal Protectora Río Nare). You may also borrow our bikes for a ride in the neighborhood. Santa Elena's temperature is great: around 19 Celsius during the day and 12 at night; sleep well with soft and warm blankets on comfortable beds.

Guest access
The entire cabin is yours, feel free to pick organic vegetables from our garden and collect eggs from our chickens. There are fruit trees as well and you can pick limes, guayaba or anything else that is ripe. Make tea from fresh cedron, which has a nice flavor and many health benefits.

Other things to note
Because you are on top of a mountain, Santa Elena cools off night to approximately 12 degrees C. The cabin has a portable heater and we have warm blankets and duvet covers on all beds.

Parque Arvi and the local square of Santa Elena are great places to visit and Medellin is only 45 min down the mountain. You can also take a walk to the local stores down the street (la Morena) of the Vereda el Plan and meet the locals. During the weekends, try some typical empanadas, made fresh before you, or join a neighbor with a sip of aguardiente.
