Patzcuaro is one of the most charming and traditional places in Mexico. In this 'pueblo magico' the center plaza('maybe the most beautiful in Mexico') is a 5 minute walk away from the house. This center part of this pueblo is small enough to navigate on foot. The Lake of Patzcuaro and surrounding mountains covered in hues of rich green in combination with the open sky create an incredible landscape. Villages around the lake feature a variety of traditional arts and crafts.
Preservation of the original architectural structure of this colonial era home has remained intact. Modern conveniences like plumbing, electricity, gas heaters, fireplaces, etc. have been incorporated and maintain the charm of an earlier time.
The house has two independent sections with an open patio and garden between. The larger part of the house has two bedrooms (one queen and the other has two twin) with gas wall heaters, full kitchen with eating area, large living room with gas fire place and bathroom with shower. The smaller part of the house has one bedroom (with queen), living room (pull out sofa bed), kitchen with eating area and bathroom with shower. These two independent areas of the house can be rented separately. The patio and covered porch areas display a variety of potted plants and the garden holds a variety of large lush plants that surround the lawn area. It is a peaceful pleasure to sit out in the warmth of the sun reading or having a coffee or wine or maybe just to experience the ambiance of the environment.
The lady who takes care of the house Elizeth is there twice a week, she does not speak English and she is a wonderful person.
Antique furniture and Oriental rugs along with contemporary art and regional Mexican arts and crafts combine to create an interesting and comfortable home. The hand made Talavera style tiles have energized the kitchen and bathroom areas. This house was furnished as a home to be enjoyed by friends and family and now also by a few special vacationers.
These two independent areas of the house are rented separately. Please contact us for available dates and rates even if the calender is marked in red (unavailable) we might have one section of the house available.
Patzcuaro is a place of historic importance in Mexico. It is one of the few towns that has kept the flavor of 'provincia', and the charm of old Mexico. Patzcuaro is only an hour from the majestic city of Morelia and 3 to 4 hours from Mexico City, Guadalajara or the beach. Nature is spectacular in this part of the country, and still today, it a very quiet and calm little town.
You will find a place to rejuvenate your body and soul. It is close to the main plazas with all they have to offer. You might feel transported to another place and time once you pass through the thick adobe walls of the entrance to find an environment that welcomes you.
