About our home

Casa Pombo is located in the heart of the Historical Centre of Cartagena de Indias facing the Cathedral, the Governor's residence and the Plaza Bolivar. It is considered as one of the most important colonial properties in the city of Cartagena. We bought the property in 2005 and restored the 16th century mansion preserving colonial features and adding a temporary twist. It has a ground floor patio pool and a sun lounge & swimming pool on the rooftop terrace, as well as two Jacuzzi. As we wanted to share this large home (2 450 m2) with our friends, we have distinctively divided it into 5 large apartments (from 250m2 to 600m2). The house comes with local personnel to make your stay most comfortable. Casa Pombo has been featured in House & Garden, Marie Claire and Casa Viva.

More about us

  1. We are a French family living in Paris with two children 6 and 9 years' old raised in an international environment. We love to travel. We have a passion for ancient cultures and old mansions. After restoring a 17th century castle in France, we undertook the project to restore a 16th century colonial property in Cartagena de Indias in Colombia to give it back its colonial splendor. After having spent a lot of our free time in Colombia to oversee this project we would like to renew with our sense of adventure and international travel during French school holidays. The house exchange does not need to occur simultaneously as our property in Cartagena is essentially a vacation home.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

There are few cities in the world that hold as many 16th and 17th century buildings as does Cartagena de Indias in Colombia. Because of this reason the Historical Centre has been designated as part of UNESCO's World Heritage Program.
Casa Pombo is located in a privileged position in the small city of Cartagena and with panoramic views on its historical monuments and the Caribean Sea.
When staying in Cartagena one should visit the islands that are a short boat ride away from the city: the Isla Baru and Gran Islas del Rosario which is a group of protected nature reserve islands.
