Papa Hemingway’s comfortable, easygoing homestead in Cuba – LA Times

From the gentle heights behind the house, over the tops of tropical trees, you can see the modest skyline of Havana and the blue sea beyond, fading into sky.

That vista gave this homestead its name: Finca Vigía — Lookout Farm. This is where American author Ernest Hemingway lived and wrote from 1939 to 1960.

It’s a one-story, cream-colored, stucco villa built in the 1880s — not big, just comfortable, the kind of easygoing place that would suit a hillside in Italy’s Tuscany as well as it does this one in Cuba.
