Art and history combine at the charming Posada de San Antonio, an attractive family-run guesthouse just minutes’ walk from the town’s impressive central plaza. The posada melds seamlessly into the historic architecture of Villa de Leyva, one of Colombia’s most enchanting colonial towns and a treasure trove of cobbled streets, hand-carved wooden balconies and terracotta tiled townhouses.
Posada de San Antonio beautifully recaptures the town’s former glory with antique furniture and period décor yet adds a contemporary twist by showcasing an eclectic mix of modern painting and sculptures created by local artists in the reception-cum-gallery.
There are 23 cosy guestrooms which are wrapped around a leafy central courtyard. Brimming with traditional character, the rooms are perfectly in tune with Villa de Leyva’s old world charm yet feature mod-cons such as cable TV and wireless internet.
Food is delicious, a fusion of European and Colombian flavours which makes best use of fresh seasonal produce and is accompanied by home-made bread, jams and “arepa” corn cakes.
Additional facilities include a snug lounge and games room.
La Posada de San Antonio is an attractive hotel that captures the essence of Villa de Leyva. The facilities are on the rustic side but its location and warm atmosphere provide a perfect base from which to explore the town.
