About this listing
This historic property located on Cerro Alegre, was fully renovated in 2006 and continues in the hands of direct descendants of the family. The first owner, an immigrant from Sardinia, Italy was declared illustrious son of the city of Valparaiso.
This family house was built in English style in 1920. Its privileged location, in the center of Valparaiso's historic neighborhoods, provides the opportunity to walk to museums, art galleries, restaurants and the city center.This apartment has no direct view over the bay, but a wonderful view of the hills. If you are looking for a place with a panoramic view, we suggest you consider our second apartment located in this same house. Look for the listing "Historic House with Great View".

Bruno, a surgeon, was born and raised in Valparaiso. Carmen was born and raised in Santiago. They live in Viña del Mar, just minutes away from Valparaiso, and have 5 children and 10 grandchildren. They love classic music, literature and travelling around the world. In 2006, inspired by his family tradition, Bruno decided to make an old dream come true: to produce olive oil, as it had been done by his great-grandfather in the far-away land of Itiri (Sardinia, Italy). You can learn more about this project by visiting (URL HIDDEN) . Bruno and Carmen are both very excited about being able to offer their historic house to guests visiting the beautiful port-city of Valparaiso.
