About Guidobruno Guidi di Bagno

My wife and I like to consider ourselfs as citizens of the world. We love travelling, knowing people, taste new foods and we really appreciate new cultures.

I love taking pictures to stop those precious moments within our experiences.

My wife likes to know people and make new and different friendships.

Guidobruno Guidi di Bagno purchased this house in 2007

Why Guidobruno Guidi di Bagno chose San Diego

We discovered Cartagena by chance and we fell in love with the people and the city. We live here with great pleasure various months per year and we are really happy when we can share this experience with friends or guests. Colombia unfortunately has a very bad fame, but this regards only a very small part of it. The great majority of the country and its people is beautiful and very welcoming.

If you read "100 years of solitude" when young you will be surprised to find out that Gabriel Garcia Marquez didn't put any fantasy in his book he merely described what happened and happens even today in Cartagena. You will find the improbable names, absurd situations, unbelievable places he described.

You will find yourselfs in the magic of the Pearl of the Caribbean, you will be caught by the slow motion of life and the heat will surround you.

By a white Panama hat and you'll be in another era.

What makes this house unique

Buying our house was a" coup de foudre". We saw it in 2007 and immediately decided to buy it. It has been restored with all our love and with a total respect of the characteristics and materials of 3 centuries ago. Starting 2008 we came to Cartagena more and more. Now we are travelling and spend more ore less 6 months in our beautiful house.

Our porter can find you almost everything: a baby sitter, a chef, a boat for a trip to the Rosario Islands (40 min). Just ask him. Don't trust anybody offering you services in the streets.

A+ property, staff and owner

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Guidobruno, is very responsive and answered all the questions I needed prior to arrival and made me feel comfortable booking the property. The property itself looks better than the pictures. It has a large outdoor living area and a second large air conditioned indoor living room on the second floor. The rooftop with jacuzzi had a cool view and the pool was clean and a great part of the house. Felix and the staff were very nice and accommodating and would clean after every night. We were very impressed with the space and the bedrooms were comfortable and much better than the pictures look. I would absolutely recommend this place. The location is perfect and a very convenient to get around old city. We felt safe the entire time we were at the property.

A++++

  • 5 of 5

Overall experience was unreal, by far the best vacation of my life!! The house was amazing, exceeded all my expectations. It came with a maid which cleaned everyday, a chef that cooked for you everyday and porter who helped with all your needs. The location of the house was in a very safe area, we roamed the streets at all hours of the day and felt completely safe. Everyone was so nice, food was amazing, I definitely plan on returning and staying at the same location.

Cartagena, the Pearl of the Caribbean, was founded in 1527 by Spanish conquistadors. Today and 'the biggest tourist attraction of Colombia and and' highly respected by all the South Americans, Americans and Europeans. Surrounded by ancient walls and 'imbued with a spell that will discover walking through its streets with poetic names: street of bitterness (because you passed through the slaves), Las Damas, tumbamuertos (because the corpses fell funeral vehicles because of the condition the road surface at the time), and Calle Quero (where and 'situated the house) for withal niggardly Count Quero that it says he lived right at our doorstep. In Cartagena, there are lots of things to do, places to see local bars and restaurants to hang out, just steps away from the house. Cartagena will amaze 'with its quiet rhythm of daily life that become hectic night. music everywhere, beer and rum, so many possibilities' to make friends.
