    A beautifully restored family home from home, this wonderful 3-bedroom house with architectural pedigree is a peaceful paradise in the heart of Cartagena's historic center.

    With tasty neighbours, Cafe Mila and the fine-dining restaurants of Calle Ayos nearby, this house is perfectly located for Cartagena's nocturnal attractions. 

    The impeccable property was designed by one of Colombia's most accomplished architects, Eduardo Franco for his own enjoyment and you can tell. He deliberately avoided cramming too many rooms into the space, leaving a wonderful pool area and a very special, inside-outside atmosphere.

    This property is built for spreading out and chilling. 

    Perfect for a large family or a select group of friends, Casa Fresita, is a treat for families looking for a little extra space to stretch out and enjoy Cartagena.

LOCATION

  • Centro

    Cartagena's nerve centre serves up breathtaking colonial architecture, the city's top attractions, finest hotels, eateries and drinking dens as well as being the administrative and cultural heart of the city. 

    Centro has lost none of its importance thanks to the universal lure of its colonial pomp and the concentration of government buildings, hotels, tourist attractions, bars and restaurants in the area. 

    Cartagena's finest hotels and restaurants have taken over the uber-casas built by slave traders and Spanish plunderers in the 17th century. 

    The richest residents knocked up stunning two and three-storey mansions by the westernmost tip of the walled city, where they bagged the sea breeze and first whiff of pirates. Today only those at the very top of Colombia's rich list can afford to maintain these opulent houses in their original residential state.
