  • FULL LISTING

    Built over two levels with a Luis Barragan-inspired swimming pool on the ground-floor interior patio and a jacuzzi on the roof for luck, Casa Uchuva, can sleep up to 10 in five comfortable rooms.

    Each of its five boho chic bedrooms is kitted out with its own private bathroom, air conditioning and ceiling fans.

    For big groups there are seven beds, three doubles and four singles with a living room catering to intellectual types that love to flick through weighty coffee table books covering the gamut of cultural life.

    A BBQ on the second floor connects perfectly with one of Cartagena's few lawns, but the house's piéce de résistance is the open-air master bedroom and rooftop terrace both with truly captivating sea views.

    A ground-floor dining table seats 12 for banquets by the pool. Art throughout by Valentino Cortazar, the father of talented Colombian designer, Esteban Cortazar.

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.
