A Belgian National with a Colombian wife, we built this house in 2000 in order to have a great holiday destination for us and our kids and family. We love the place, its great.
Combines the attraction of Cartagena centre (shopping, restaurants) with the ability to chill-out away from the crowds and enjoy the beaches and all the aquatic sports.
