It's a perfect place close to Manizales to relax in a quiet garden with birds and beautiful mountain views. The bathrooms are clean. There is potable water to fill your tank and Electricity to plug in. There is fast Wifi available. Patricia also rents out two nice little rooms which can be booked via Airbnb. There is enough leveled space for several vehicles. Dogs are welcome. This place was made with lots of love.
Update May 2023: the road to this location is about 1km from Villapilar and becomes gravel about 500m from the house. For vehicles longer than 7m, higher than 3.1m and broader than 2.2m it might be a challenge. The entrance to her house is opposite a big advertising sign on the left-hand side of the gravel road. If you miss the entrance turning around is difficult. Maps.me and Overlander showed it correctly, Waze, normally a good app for Colombia, did not.
.....C'est un endroit parfait près de Manizales pour se détendre dans un jardin calme avec des oiseaux et de belles vues sur la montagne. Les salles de bain sont propres. Il y a de l'eau potable pour remplir votre réservoir et de l'électricité à brancher. Il y a une connexion Wi-Fi rapide disponible. Patricia loue également deux jolies petites chambres qui peuvent être réservées via Airbnb. Il y a suffisamment d'espace nivelé pour plusieurs véhicules. Les chiens sont les bienvenus. Cet endroit a été fait avec beaucoup d'amour.
Mise à jour mai 2023 : la route menant à cet endroit est à environ 1 km de Villapilar et devient gravillonnée à environ 500 m de la maison. Pour les véhicules de plus de 7 m, de plus de 3,1 m et de plus de 2,2 m de large, cela peut être un défi. L'entrée de sa maison se trouve en face d'un grand panneau publicitaire sur le côté gauche de la route de gravier. Si vous manquez l'entrée, il est difficile de faire demi-tour. Maps.me et Overlander l'ont montré correctement, Waze, normalement une bonne application pour la Colombie, ne l'a pas fait.

We stayed with Gloria for a week and loved it here. It's peaceful and cheap 18-20,000COP with toilets, showers, great internet and nice sloping land to pitch a tent. The views are great and Gloria will suggest lots of things to do around Manizales, including coffee farms and thermal baths. She also offers Airbnb and Workaway opportunities (separately). We did the last with lodging and lunch in exchange for 4hrs of work per day. Her food is delicious and very filling. She is very flexible and happy to accommodate to your needs. the Finca is located about 1km down the road from Villapilar (outskirts of Manizales). You can reach it by yellow Taxi from the centre of Manizales for about 10,000 COP or by bus for cheaper.
Nos quedamos con Gloria por una semana y nos encantó estar aquí. Es tranquilo y barato 18-20,000 COP con baños, duchas, Internet excelente y un terreno inclinado agradable para armar una tienda de campaña. Las vistas son excelentes y Gloria sugerirá muchas cosas para hacer en Manizales, incluidas las fincas cafetaleras y los baños termales. También ofrece oportunidades de Airbnb y Workaway (por separado). El último lo hicimos con hospedaje y almuerzo a cambio de 4hrs de trabajo por día. Su comida es deliciosa y muy abundante. Ella es muy flexible y feliz de adaptarse a sus necesidades. la Finca se encuentra aproximadamente a 1 km por la carretera de Villapilar (a las afueras de Manizales). Se puede llegar en Taxi amarillo desde el centro de Manizales por unos 10.000 COP o en bus más económico.Report Check-In
La señora se llama Patricia con el teléfono :3104147774 .
Excelente lugar con todas sus comodidades y una vista maravillosa súper recomendado .
Si eres overland tienes que venir a este lugar .👍👍🏠🏠
As described a very nice place with a very friendly host. Do not miss the entrance (see photos) turning around with our 6m campertruck was not easy.
Patricia gave us a lift to the mirador in manizales. For the return we took a taxi from the plaza bolivar (7000 cop) to the cafe el granjo and walked the last 1.2 km (20 min.) down to the chalet.
Patricia the owner is a very generous and warm person. She loves to have travelers over and offers immense respect to those who respect her and her home in return. The place is amazing in the backcountry of Manizales, and for the mere 20,000COP she charged for the night to camp, I would definitely come over and spend more time with her along with some friends. Muchas gracias Patricia.

This place is currently open, the other comment from June 15th is with bad intentions, comming from a problematic guest.Report Check-In
The friendly neighbour from the store next to it let us turn back and call the woman. She in a really bad mood reject us claiming not receiving people with no prior notice "from IOverlander". We explain there is no way to let her know. She said she is working with airb&b only now. Looked really nice place. (Maybe bc of elections?)Report Check-In
It is a wonderful place, incredibly close to the city to encounter such a peaceful place in pure nature. Lots of flowers attracting birds of many kinds. For me it is about sitting in the garden and enjoy some coffe and relax. Gloria Patricia is a great host and makes you feel very welcomed from the beginning.
The facility have everything you need for a relaxed stay. And if you have any qestions about making a tour and visit places, Gloria can help you organize it.
This was our 2nd time here. The entrance is tricky in a couple of places and the road is narrow. It’s well worth the trouble though. Patricia charged us 18,000COP per person and 8,000 for a great breakfast. Stock up on supplies as nothing is in walking distance. Beautiful gardens and possibility she will drive you to town. Friendly dogs, friendly family!Report Check-In
A peaceful sanctuary just next to the city, the perfect place to rest.
We've spent two weeks here while struggling for DIAN and other papers. Beautiful garden full of flowers and colibris. Patricia the owner completely understood what overlanders need. Our two cats were very happy also to stay here :)
Nous avons passé 48 heures magnifiques au Chalet San Luis. Patricia nous a réservé un accueil très chaleureux et le lieu est magique : fleurs, oiseaux, panorama ... rien ne manque.
Patricia nous a même conduits à Manizales pour quelques courses.
Nous espérons que d'autres voyageurs vont bientôt nous suivre, nous étions les premiers de l'année !
Everything as described. Patricia is a lovely person. Beautiful garden with views.Report Check-In

We are 8m long and 2.45 high and really struggled to get down the last 100m of lane so I would be hesitant to describe this as big rig friendly. If you are just slightly narrower it will be no problem height until an issue. Hot showers are available for campers
A beautiful place in a middle of the mountains
Patricia is a wonderful host, lovely and she always wants to help you.
Her place is wonderful, peaceful and so quiet at night.
There is a kitchen but without burners. You can cook on a fire oven.
Lot of differents fruits in the garden and you can grab some.
Green space to park and you can plug your car too.
The road to go there is a bit tight. But you can easily do it if you are not to big!
Recommand this place for sure.
As described, super friendly host. Just adding a photo of the entryway as we missed it on the way down. Also, if coming from Manizales a larger vehicles can’t make the right turn off the main road — you’d have to go on and turn around somehow and come back up the hill. Look for the entry on your right just after the big slanted cement wall.Report Check-In
Patricia is absolutely fantastic. She has a beautiful house with a huge garden and great view. She’s really helpful and nice. She charges 17k pp to camp in your car. the toilets are basic but clean. Her house is very warm and welcoming. But she does request for people NOT to just show up without calling (+573104147774). It’s about 20 min from town and the road is a bit tight but we fit with our rig which is 2.90m high.Report Check-In
Lovely place with 360 degrees view
We unfortunatly stayed one night here... time in Colombie was running
Free for kids under 10
Really friendly owner!
What a wonderful place and what an amazing landlady! We believe, after 1,5 years of travelling in South America, this is the best place so far. Incredible almost 360 degrees panoramic view over the coffee region. Patricia, the owner, has been spoiling us with fresh juices and coffee. Nice birds and colibris at the feeders. We are 6m long and 3m high and had no problems to enter. 7 by 3,5 will do also. Probably 8 by 4 too, you might have to deal then with one small branch along the entry road, not sure...Report Check-In
We stayed three nights at Patricia's. She is a very warmhearted hostess, such a lovely person! Her dogs are super friendly and cute. You camp in Patricia's garden which is a wonderful place. Spectacular views of the surroundings. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Clean bathrooms, hot shower. A quite and chilled place - I would definitely recommend it!Report Check-In
