Autentica Pergola is a peaceful oasis set in the bustling city centre of Santa Clara. There’s a hint how beautiful this casa interior is from the outside, with the lovely white balustrades and ornate railings, but it’s not until you step through the heavy-wooden door that you appreciate how amazing this mansion house really is.
There are 5 individual rooms surrounding a leafy central courtyard with pretty fountains and thriving tropical plants. Each room is tastefully decorated with a strong colonial influence including rich wood, beautiful tiles and heavy chandeliers. Guest rooms are cool and tranquil and have air conditioning and private bathroom.
On the roof you will find a popular local restaurant, frequented by those staying far and wide who head here for the good service, tasty food and fabulous cocktails and juices.
Although the casa lacks parking for those self-driving Cuba, there is an English-speaking lady who looks after guest cars just a block away. Autentica Pergola is a must see in Santa Clara, even if you do not stay, be sure to visit the restaurant here.
