Description: Armando rents four independent apartments. Apartment #1 upstairs has a room with two beds and air conditioning; downstairs there are a table, a refrigerator and a wide bathroom with bathtub (hot and cold water). This apartment, not so big, is very clean; all facilities are advanced and you will feel the good taste of the host. The second apartment has a broad room with a double and a single bed and two rocking chairs. The spacious bathroom has a shower with hot and cold water and a hairdryer - maybe the only one at a Casa Particular in Cuba. The apartment has as you can imagine a ventilator and air-conditioning. Everything is very new and all the material is really high quality. For exemple the wood for the beds - Mandy constructed with only the best. The same the apartment #3. There's a double bed downstairs and two single beds upstairs, all of them made with Cuban high quality wood. Aircondition, refrigerator, a huge, modern bath, you wan't miss anything, I'm sure... And the new aparment #4 ist really comfortable. Also with a double and a single bed, air condition, fridge and a spacious bath room which is even designed for physically handicaped persons.

Later on you may enjoy a wide terrace decorated with several plants; here you may have breakfast, lunch and supper, if weather allows. When talking of meals let me tell you that I have never enjoyed such a good cuisine in any other part of Cuba, as I have in Armando´s. Quality, taste and creativity when preparing and decorating dishes are unique here. If you stay in La Villa Soñada without tasting a meal in the terrace, then you have lost something important. If it's hot at the roof may you choose the new inner-courtyard - also a nice place to be. Guests may also share the big living room of this colonial house. You will surely have a pleasant stay in this house, because Armando has an eye for perfection to the last details such as: beautiful decoration, very tasty meals, background traditional music, and a mojito at the terrace or a coffee at the living room of the colonial house. I would even advise staying in Matanzas with the only purpose of enjoying the special atmosphere of this house. I am not the only one thinking this way; read opinions in TripAdvisor and you will see.

Matanzas is called little Venice in Cuba. Although there are no Gondolieri and the streets are bituminized, three rivers flowing into the sea make for much water and many bridges… The inhabitants of Matanzas love comparison – e.g. they proudly name Matanzas also Athens of Cuba – this is based on Matanzas ‘ wide spread cultural activities. Additionally, the gods aren't far away either due to the afrocuban religion Santería…
But apart from those comparisons, Matanzas is certainly a good place to start the adventure of Cuba . You can get there easily with one of the numerous airlines flying to Varadero. From the airport of Varadero you can visit the famous beaches (at about 30 km distance) as well as less touristic highlights. Also Havanna is not far from Matanzas.
