I moved to Cuenca in November of 2010 (from Seattle Washington) and am enjoying my new life immensely. I enjoy sharing my experiences with people that are considering the BIG MOVE themselves.
Cuenca is an amazing city with a perfect climate (for someone from Seattle), rich culture, and warm and friendly people. When I bought this property I was looking for a small place in the historic center that would provide a quiet and peaceful retreat for people visiting the city. Having stayed in the city center during my first trip to Cuenca, I know how miserable it can be to not get any sleep due to constant noise. Since this apartment is located on the back side of the building it is completely protected from not only all the street noise but the smog that is a problem in Cuenca.
QUIET, SAFE, and the LOCATION couldn't be better. Architecture in the city center is interesting and unique and this apartment is a fine example of that. With my interior design background I was able to see the potential and created a beautiful and cozy retreat for visitors. This apartment has everything you'll need to live comfortably for a few days or several weeks.
