Stay at Casa del Presidente

Casa del Presidente is a hidden gem in the Andean town of Barichara. We have researched the best of Colombia, and we believe this five-bedroom former family home is something special. Casa del Presidente was the residence of President Belisario Betancourt and the house is bursting with character and history. This private house has five en-suite bedrooms, a dining room for up to ten people and an outdoor terrace and swimming pool. A small office workspace was once the President’s private office. This is the perfect place to hire as a private villa with family or friends.

The town of Barichara was founded in 1705, and much of its original Colonial architecture is preserved. Today it draws some of the most exciting artists and writers in the country and was once frequented by the likes of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Beyond Barichara, the Andes mountains are yours to discover, and your host and private guide know all the hidden treasures in the region.

True Travel was an absolute pleasure to deal with as we planned a special anniversary trip to South Africa. We worked with Felix who was always helpful, responsive and super informative. Everything was 5 star and perfectly planned. The hotels were superb and the tour guides were top notch. Felix filled our days with great activities and booked all of our delicious meals. The app kept us informed during the planning and as we travelled. The transfers were prompt, safe and informative. A FABULOUS trip all around. This was our second time using True Travel and I recommend True Travel to friends and family (and I already have). We cant wait to plan another special trip with them!
