One of the more exclusive places to stay in the Quindío region is Casa Alto del Coronel in Salento. Owned by the mayor of Armenia, there are only two suites available for visitors. Carefully restored and furnished, prices are around 115,000 pesos (£26), including breakfast. Each suite has a master bedroom and two single beds in an adjoining room. No email or website, but call 6-759-3760 when in Colombia to book ahead.

A good first port of call is the Quindío tourism authority website, turismoquindio.com. This site lists dozens of mainly upscale fincas, many with pools, all with balconies and spacious rooms, extensive gardens and the opportunity to see coffee production at first hand. Prices are around 50,000 pesos a night per person (about £11).
