Villa Gaudi conserves the structure of traditional Spanish architecture, with soaring ceilings, traditional rustic decor, and majestic floor-to-ceiling windows that offer tons of natural light and fantastic views of historic Old San Juan. Villa Gaudi’s interior has been recently renovated to preserve its history while elevating comfort and coziness. As you enter, you’ll be greeted by the living and dining area alongside an amazing and spacious terrace that overlooks the enchanting streets of Old San Juan. Its impeccable fine art will charm your way throughout the whole apartment. And by just opening the doors to the terrace you’ll embrace the coziness of fantastic outdoor space, the beautiful sight of the cobblestone street Calle del Sol and the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee or sunset drink.
