As one of the oldest properties in Cartagena's exquisite Centro Historico, this palatial casa made up of five separate but inter-connected suites is one of the most exciting renovation projects the city has seen.
Boasting original foundations that date back to 1533, the 16th century Casa Pombo is awash with history and the product of a first-class refurbishment by acclaimed architect Alvaro Barrera.
One of its most striking features is a three-storey slate courtyard waterfall and luscious dining room that won it a deserved place in the prestigious Wallpaper* City Guide. A rooftop mirador for sunset cocktails just underlines its seven-star feel.
Best of all, it's a stone's throw from Cartagena's best nightlife venues, rooftop bars and VIP hangouts. Although with this place booked you won't want to go anywhere, soiree away right at home.
Behind its reassuringly heavy oak door is a world of luxury and opulence, where five private restored suites (each sporting their own private balcony) serve up unique characteristics to ensure your stay is nothing less than enchanting.
In one suite, an old cell makes for a quirky toilette, whilst a different suite sports the famous regal bed where Javier Bardem writhed with Italian actress Giovanna Mezogiorno in Mike Newell's 2007 adaptation of Marquez's Love in the Time of Cholera.
Owned by European stars of the silver screen, Pombo retains a magic all of its own and is frequently booked out by film stars and celebrities who rejoice in its discretion and serenity.
You can rent the place in its entirety or simply select one of the five palatial apartments.
A rooftop pool with views of the city's cathedral, a personal chef, private masseuse, full staff and on-hand guide who customizes a private walking tour of the Cartagena landmarks that inspired so many of Marquez finest works are all available.
