Casa Botero


    The details

    Gloria de Zea, the director of Bogota's Museum of Modern Art and the first wife of Fernando Botero gave this luxury Cartagena rental an artistic pedigree that's hard to ignore.

    One of the first major Cartagena houses to be restored in the 1980s, the house was given an interior flourish by Lina Botero, the couple's daughter, in 2013.

    Lina's stylish re-fit brought the house bang up-to-date placing it at the top of the tree when it comes to remarkable Cartagena holiday homes.

    The 10-bedroom property is one of the most spectacular colonial villas in Colombia and few places can match the luscious mix of contemporary luxury fixtures and fittings and colonial pomp.

    Saudi princes and heavy-hitting international art collectors have all been wowed by Lina's immaculate taste, the special details sprinkled liberally through the property and the house's place in the resurgence of Cartagena as a glittering destination for a celebrity set that just love visiting or staying in this expansive house when invited.

    Spread over four floors, the secluded feel of each of the 10 bedrooms with a total of 17 beds makes the house a remarkable place for large groups and families looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city during high season.
