Stay in our beautiful historic Colombian coffee farmhouse, built in the Mid-19th Century.
Today the building also houses the Campos de Gutiérrez Foundation, an arts organization where you can learn ceramics and discover more about the art scene in Medellín!
Just 30 min away from Medellín’s City Center, come and stay for a weekend while you visit the city and take a ceramics class or just relax and be amazed by our natural surroundings.
Our large coffee farm house is surrounded by pristine nature, with native and secondary forests, natural creeks, a wide variety of exotic fauna and flora and nearby sites of interest like waterfalls and trails into the woods. It's also a great spot for bird watching, there are many exotic bird species in the area! You can also discover a variety butterflies and other wildlife. We are under the zone of influence of Parque Arví's Natural Reserve.
We have a pond in front of the house that can be appreciated from a balcony that surrounds the entire building. This balcony once served as an area to dry coffee beans and today it is an ample communal space where you can also enjoy a beautiful view of the woods and neighboring communities. It’s the perfect place to start the day with a cup of Colombian coffee.
We also have a bilingual library that is focused on art and regional subjects.
We have two communal bathroom facilities in the house, one upstairs and one downstairs. Laundry facilities are available upon request for guest staying more than 3 days.

I am an artist and founder at the Campos de Gutiérrez Foundation, co-funder of the Maati Ceramics Studio. Originally from Colombia, I’ve spent a significant 11 years of my life abroad, mostly in the United States and also in Korea. Since 2011, I have had the amazing privilege of hosting many international artists through the Campos de Gutiérrez Residency Program in my family’s historic property. Now that the project has grown and we have cabins available, I am looking forward to hosting anyone who is passionate about history, Medellin, nature, art, ceramics, or anything else that we might be able to offer in our homestead.
