Below we have highlighted just five villas that we love in this expansive region. This is by no means a prescriptive list, but rather it shows what we look for in villas for our clients and the inspiring ways we can create a family holiday of a lifetime for every member of the family. The meticulous way in which our Destination Experts’ plan your Latin American holiday means that this exotic region is opened to you in a hassle free and relaxing manner. Great travel is about contrast and villa holidays in Latin America work particularly well when paired with other adventures and experiences in the region.
CASA AGUA, CARTAGENA, COLOMBIA
One our favourite villas in pastel pretty Cartagena is Casa Agua which was formerly a hotel but has now been converted to a private house. The charming colonial house was built in the late 17th century and is steeped in history. The eclectic decor nods to its heritage, with a thoughtfully curated mix of antiques and handcrafted objects in every room. Cosy and elegant and with a modern pool and solarium. By staying here, you are exposed to an exciting slice of Colombian culture.
If you want to combine your stay in buzzing Cartagena with some beach time. We have access to some exclusive private houses on private islands on Colombia’s Caribbean coast. In this area, a boat is the equivalent of a car as many beaches on the mainland cannot be accessed by road and groups of islands become like neighbourhoods. You can even get food delivered to your island by boat and a particular favourite for us is the local fishermen that sail around the islands selling their freshly caught king crab.
