Though my husband and I live in the States, we travel to Mexico on a regular basis and kept returning to the Patzcuaro area. We decided to build a home there, where we could escape the cold wet dreary days of winter and enjoy the sun and blue skies. We found the perfect spot just outside the city of Patzcuaro. We hope you all enjoy the house and surrounding area as much as we do. Gabriel and Denise
