Designed around 3 patios, Casa Antigua is a seven-bedroom villa rental in Cartagena’s bustling Old Town. It is beautifully decorated with globally-inspired pieces while retaining its historic charm.
What is the story behind Casa Patio, what was your inspiration to create it?
Casa Patio is a lovely, light-filled property next to an old trade centre and is an oasis in the middle of Cartagena’s happening Old Town. With five ensuite bedrooms, it’s great for a family or a small group of close friends. At the heart of the property is an Andalucian-style patio with a swimming pool that is bathed in beautiful morning light.
How would you describe the atmosphere, architecture and interior design of Casa Patio?
Casa Patio has been tastefully decorated in an eclectic style, with lots of vintage pieces and antique furnishings, as well as modern touches. There are beautiful artworks throughout the property and bold fabrics made by Colombian artisans. Among the original features are rustic floor tiles, whitewashed walls and antique washstands, as well as the wooden balustraded and beamed galleries on the first floor.
The beds are incredible — you will never sleep as well anywhere else! I love that you can shutter up the rooms and the walls are so thick, making it really quiet, even though you are in the middle of everything.
