We looked in various parts of Mexico for a place to retire to, but fell in love with Patzcuaro and with the house on Dr. Coss the first time we saw them. The town is unique in being relatively unspoiled since the 16th Century, when it was the capitol of the state of Michoacan. When the capitol was moved to Morelia in the late 16th Century, Patzcuaro survived as if in a time warp. There is no place like it in Mexico. Aside form the historical interest, Patzcuaro enjoys almost perfect weather, with temperatures rarely reaching 80 degrees in the hottest part of the year; and in the coldest months of December and January, there will only occasionally be a light frost at night.
Our house is built in the traditional Mexican style, with a series of rooms surrounding a courtyard and a large garden in the rear. The house is beautiful and spacious, and the gardens offer greenery and colorful flowers all year round. It is a wonderful place to relax, but it is also just a five-minute walk from the main plaza of the town.
This cottage has its own private garden with plenty of sun and views from the 2nd floor. We found it very comfotable and well equiped. Quality sheets,towels, and down comforter. There is an electric blanket and gas fireplace for chilly nights. The owners live nextdoor and were very helpful offering information and books from there library. The house is located close to downtown but up a short steep hill . Patzcuaro is a great base for visiting many interesting towns within an hours drive. Public transportation is plentyful and inexspensive. We hope to return next year.
Patzcuaro is an unspoiled colonial town, built in the 16th Century and little changed since then. The town contains historical buildings and museums, and is near two pre-Hispanic Purhepecha ruins. It is the center of an extensive range of art and craft production, and is an excellent base for shopping for native crafts.
