I remember as a child watching the movie “Sound of Music” over and over again. I shamelessly admit that I’ve also seen it as an adult multiple times. And every time that I’ve had the opportunity to hike across the ridge of a mountain, my mind goes back to that scene when the Von Trapp family leave Austria and escape to Switzerland.
Lumbre offered that experience, with cows grazing on the hills, open landscape as far as the eye can see, and as a special treat, what seemed like a secret hike through the forest to an enchanting waterfall – our own private escape. Such a perfect way to spend a beautiful sunny morning just oustide the small quaint town of Salento nestled in the Cocora Valley.
For those of us who think they want to go camping but aren’t quite ready to sleep on the ground, who want to enjoy the simplicity and beauty that nature has to offer, to wake up to gentle breezes and the chirping of the birds, to be pampered and catered to by the most gracious of hosts, Glamping at Lumbre will fulfil all of your desires and more. With hiking trails just 100m away, horseback riding at your whim and even the extreme pampering of a masseuse, if you so desire. A treat for bird watchers.
Our short 3 night stay wasn’t enough. If there’s one place you want to put on your bucket list – this is it.
