We wanted a short break to relax, breath some fresh air, eat good food, see some breathtaking landscape and overall to get our son’s first horse back riding experience while we could also enjoy doing the same. This is exactly what we got.
The team is passionate in all they do. Guillermin keeps the gardens and maintains the house up to the best standards, Patricia and Dorita cook delicious and generous meals and keep the house spotless. Camilo and Simon treat the horses like if they were part of the family. Chalas is the best rider in Colombia, a superb host and incredibly skilled if you want your 2 year old to love horses for the rest of his life.
The hacienda style hotel is absolutely fantastic. It is a very well maintained 1700s house perfect to have a quiet time in the cozy living room where the fire place is lit every evening, dinner is served the other side of the patio in an stylish dinning room and the bedrooms are very comfortable.
Well done to the whole team. Our experience was the best we had during our trip to Colombia. Keep the good work!

My trip in October 2017 with Valle Varde was in one word FANTASTIC! Perfect organisation, passionated people and a beautiful environment. Horses and equipment well cared for. Impressed by the "Criollo" horse breed.
I also like the informative and educational objective of Valle Verde. For example the activities for children which Valle Verde organizes.
Keep up the good work!

I rode with Valle Verde for ten days in March 2018 and it was a wonderful adventure. We rode for five days in the lush green coffee region, staying in a different place every night with our exceptionally well behaved horses . I saw lots of fruits and flowers I've never seen before , plus bananas, pineapples, coffee and papaya growing there . The colourful architecture was very pretty and the landscape beautiful
We then travelled to the Andes where again we riode our horses in a different beautiful landscape, staying in different places of interest and stopping off to see winderful old haciendas
Huge thanks to a superb team ...Ernesto, Simon, Alejandro and Diego for being so professional and fun and for being so passionate about sharing your country with us all
There were too many special experiences and sites to describe here but I highly recommend riding with Valle Verde
