Eclectically decorated with treasures from around the globe and retaining many of its colonial features, Casa Eclectica is a seven-bedroom holiday rental in Cartagena’s Old Town.
What is the story behind Casa Antigua, what was your inspiration to create it?
Casa Antigua is the jewel in the crown of our Cartagena collection and located in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town. It’s a huge property that originally had two patios but has been extended to include three. There’s a grandeur and historic charm about the house, with fine artworks and antiques decorating its spaces.
How would you describe the atmosphere, architecture and interior design of Casa Antigua?
Casa Antigua is decorated with artworks, furnishings and interior features from all over the globe — there’s charm and character everywhere you look. The owners are very well travelled and have incredible taste. Many of the property’s original features have been retained, such as the double-height ceilings, wooden beams and studded entrance door. The light-filled terraces are lushly planted with tropical species while the Arabian-style pond is filled with lily pads.
