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 sin Puertas?
Casa sin Puertas lies in the historic heart of Honda, which is surrounded by mountains overlooking the Magdalena River. The owners are architects and wanted a place they could easily get away to. Honda was the ideal spot because it’s so chill. It’s the perfect destination for people who like hiking and being in the outdoors, as well as having a rich history due to its location along an important trade route.
Honda is filled with Spanish colonial-style buildings and has just a handful of cafes and restaurants, all of which serve great food and are a little bit chic, without being over the top. Casa sin Puertas is located on a cobbled street just off the main square and is really unique, with no doors or windows creating a seamless connection between its indoor and outdoor spaces.
How would you describe the atmosphere, architecture and interior design of Casa sin Puertas?
While the walls of the building are very old, Casa sin Puertas has been designed with a lot of modern touches. The owners are architects, one of whom works with a lot of steel and iron, so this gives the house a slightly industrial feel. It’s been featured in quite a few architectural magazines. The double-height spaces feature whitewashed walls, polished concrete floors and minimalist interiors, as well as beautiful old trees and plants throughout.
Casa sin Puertas is a great place for groups of people who want to spend time together, such as a family reuniting at Christmas. It’s very open in its design and there is such a wonderful flow and energy — you really connect with the people around you when you’re staying there.
