Casa Burgundy in the heart of the Historic Centre.
Casa Burgundy sits along the Calle Don Sancho, an exclusive street rich with history and authentic Colonial style. Centrally located, the property is just steps from the exactingly restored Teatro Heredia and the 400 year-old fortress walls built by Spaniards to protect the empire’s gold and emerald trade from pirates and profiteers.
On the alternate side of the ramparts the beautiful blue gem of the Caribbean Sea awaits, allowing guests breathtaking views from the mirador (with its 10-person Jacuzzi) or from the spacious balcony at the front.
Situated close to the sea, this property enjoys the gentle sea breezes and stunning views, making it one of the most comfortable and relaxing homes in the city. Masterful Colonial-era architecture creates natural air conditioning which captures those sea breezes to cool the home in the heat of the day. However, each room also has discreet Hunter overhead fans and modern but unobtrusive air conditioning units with individual temperature controls.
The property also features excellent outdoor areas: two patios (one at the front and one in the rear) both of which are beautifully accented by royal palms. One features a gorgeous cascading water fountain which plays in the light and adds soothing sound.
Each room in Casa Burgundy has been uniquely designed with its own theme and color scheme achieved through use of vibrant paints, designer fabrics, and custom-laid flooring of Pompeya tiles or coralina stone. Accented by authentic antique furniture and art works every room offers an escape from reality.
The house has been fully retrofitted for a modern lifestyle and is equipped with direct internet in all of the bedrooms, and a Bose surround sound system in the master bedroom.
The attention to detail extends to the kitchen as well. It features a large 6-burner steel stove, an extractor, microwave, espresso machine, and a wine cooler—everything you need for a sophisticated cooking experience and perfect for preparing meals for two or large dinner parties.
And for dinner parties, the Colonial dining room table seats 12. Many more can be seated on either or both of the patios as well, making Casa Burgundy perfect for hosts who need to entertain large groups of guests during their stay in Colombia.
Without doubt, Cartagena’s Old Town is its principal attraction, consisting of the historical districts of El Centro and San Diego. The area is a true gem of colonial architecture, packed with churches, monasteries, plazas, palaces and mansions with their overhanging balconies and shady patios. The best approach to experiencing Old Town is to wander leisurely, savouring the architectural details, street life and local snacks along the way. The best restaurants and bars in the city are all within a few minutes walk and transport to and from the house is easy to arrange. Whether you’re arriving from the airport, visiting the sights or setting off to the marina to spend a day at sea this is the perfect area to base yourself for your stay in Cartagena.
