LUXURY APARTMENT IN COLONIAL TOWN WITH SPECTACULAR BALCONY

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in San Diego

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 7

A stunning apartment (360 degeres photos availale on http://altamira360.com/lasbuganvillas ), situated in the heart of the walled city, declared common heritage of mankind by UNESCO, very close to the Church and Plaza Santo Domingo. From its external balcony, you can appreciate the beauty of narrow streets . Only a few meters away, you will come across the famous bronze statue 'La Gorda' by the renown sculptor and painter Botero. You can also enjoy different cultural performances on the square, such as music and dance, and also sample superb gastronomy in one of the most beautiful cities of Colombia and the Caribbean, recognized as the patrimony of mankind by UNESCO.

The apartment is 135 square meters long, situated on the first floor of a two level apartment. The entrance leads to a reception/dining room, which is part of the original construction of a XVII century home. The reception/dining room is nine meters long and five meters wide and some 10 meters high.

The kitchen is spacious and functional; the colonial balcony is large and delightful, covered with bougainvilleas and palms. A corridor leads to the second bedroom, also with an en suite bathroom. At the centre of the reception/dining room we come across a room which is designed as a waiting room but which can also be used as the third bedroom as it is equipped with a double sofa bed. A metal spiraling staircase from the beginning of XX century leads to the principal bedroom with an en suite bathroom, with a view to the reception from an internal balcony.

The perfect location of this apartment is one of its principal attractions, as is the roof terrace with a view of the sea and old town including the Cathedral which is illuminated at night. The interior design is particularly elegant, a work of an international designer. Its decoration is suited for the use of families on holidays, executives, officials and diplomats as it can also serve as an office or long term occupancy.

All elements of technology and comfort include Internet Wi-Fi, two TV plasmas, Cable TV, telephone line with unlimited use for local calls, and a home theatre. It also has washing/drying machine, hob and gas oven and a microwave. A maid is available part time to maintain the apartment and cook international meals. We also offer the services of a bilingual hairdresser, nurse, baby sitter, masseuse and driver at market prices.

Location: Only meters away from Plaza Santo Domingo, Plaza de Bolivar, Inquisition Palace, Plaza San Pedro, Plaza de la Aduana and Plaza de los Coches. Five minutes away from Hotel Santa Clara and Plaza San Diego. The city is surrounded by walls and fortifications which you can visit on foot in view of short distances.

Viktor is an international lawyer and journalist who moved to Cartagena to escape harsh European winters. He bought this property to preserve its architectural heritage: most of what used to be called 'salon principal' in grand houses from 17th century have now been converted into multiple apartments, taking advantage of their enormous height. This apartment faithfully reflects rich historic tradition of Cartagena and will now be preserved as part of the architectural patrimony of this walled city.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2009

Cartagena is the only completely preserved walled city in the Americas and easily easily competes with rennaissance and baroque cities of Europe, and elsewhere in Central, South Amefrica and the Caribbean with perfect climate and twelve months bathing season.

You will feel transported centuries back in this 17th century house, and yet enjoy all the modern amenities

Great stay!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed one week in this apartment. We had a fantastic week in the heart of the old city. The place is charming and the owner very helpful. The apartment was perfect, being big enough and comfortable for 2 couples with small children. I would definitely recommand it.

Amazing house

  • 5 out of 5
I had an awesome time in Cartagena. I could say that a great part is because of the house i stayed. It is in a very good location as said on the ad. A lot of restaurants, bars in a walking distance.
The house is very beautiful, clean, new, cozy. The photos were very accurate and the owner is very friendly. We had 0 zero problems and I would reccomend this house to all of my friends and family. I had no complaints at all.

Elegance in the Old City!

  • 5 out of 5
Listing is completely accurate! Perfectly located within the walled city on the best street in town! Lots of shopping and restaurants close by. Pictures depict the unit as it is today. Very nice, clean and comfortable. Owner was very gracious and helpful before and during our trip. I would recommend this place to anyone that is thinking about staying in the walled city and wants to be close to everything. The owner provides recommendations for dinner that are spot on! We went to see the Castillo San Felipe de Barajas, Playa Blanca and Volcan de Lodo El Totumo (Mud Volcano). All were worth it. If you are coming to stay in Cartagena, you should stay here!

Best place to stay in Cartagena

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment was fantastic on all accounts. It was really important for me to be located centrally in the old town and this delivers. It's on the one of the main streets and there is no more than 5 minutes walking between the apartment and most locations in the old city. The apartment itself is spacious, clean, and comfortable. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone who is looking for a truly authentic Colombian experience in Cartagena.

Old City Convenient Apartment

  • 5 out of 5
Very clean, very convenient apartment in the heart of the old City. Viktor arranged for taxi pick-up for us so we were escorted at the airport and whisked away to our apartment where he met us. The apartment came with a young woman who was included up to four hours a day to clean for us and and/or cook for us. Her English was limited. Wi-fi and air conditioning provided. Four adults and two young boys shared this apartment comfortably. We felt very safe in Cartagena. Excellent restaurants right outside our door.

Cartagena de indias is the best preserved walled city in the Caribbean, most of buildings in the old town are from 16-18 century. Cartagena has become one of the leading partying cities in South America: with hosts of cultural festivals, from classical music (January) to film and literary events. The apartment 'Las Bugenvillas' is situated in the heart of the colonial town, in a 17th century house, 2-5 minutes from all the landmarks, and only 20 meters from the colonial Plaza Santo Domingo. The apartment has a large colonial balcony, and the huge dining room/reception has a ceiling ten meters high. Beaches are cca 5 minutes by cab, or 20 minutes walk. A roof terrace with a view of the old town and the Caribbean will be constructed in August 2010.
