La Casa del Sol is located in the beautiful valley of Tepoztlan, surrounded by stunning mountains and exuberant vegetation that change all year round in a warm and benign weather. With no houses in sight its terraced garden and multi-leveled architecture offer several views of the gorgeous landscape giving you the opportunity to relax in a quiet and peaceful environment.
It is only ten minutes away from both Tepoztlan and Amatlán where you can visit traditional markets or archeological sites. There are also nice traditional and international restaurants and quaint local boutiques. Since the area is well known for its mystical energies (both towns have recently been classified as 'magical' villages of Mexico) there are plenty SPAs, nature retreats and traditional Mexican saunas (-temazcales-) in the area. We have also in the Casa del Sol a gorgeous yoga room for 20 persons (maybe also used seminars, workshops, etc) and a little but very nice and fresh fitness place.
The property is divided in two separated units. The main complex offers two queen size bedrooms and one room with one king size bed and one single bed, each with it own bathroom (shower), the second house where the yoga room is located, offers two queen size bedrooms with shower (we have a japanese 'futon' for two people too). The yoga room can obviously accomodate a good number of people coming with their own sleeping-bag and matress. Each unit has a master bedroom with a fully furnished private balcony, all the other main bedrooms can be accessed independently. The main house also has a nice living room with a chimney and a fully equipped kitchen. The rooms are equiped with comfortable and elegant Mexican furniture and decorated with some mural paintings by a local artist. (It also has a library with books and DVDs, sky tv and a selection of table games).
Nevertheless you will spend most of your time outside, sitting under the pergola, relaxing in a hammock, playing table tennis, floating on a comfortable air-mattress, lying in the sun near the swimming pool (you chose the temperature of the water!), or in one of the several private and romantic spaces that the garden has to offer.
This ecological house, made with local materials,the swimming pool is warmed with solar energy, all the water is rain collected, is frequently visited by Mexico city artists and intellectuals because of the tranquility of its surroundings and the beauty of its views (sunsets are seen directly from the house). The mountains nearby offered splendids walks; offer a varied and mysthiques landscapes.
Because the mountain view is a pleasure without limits! The weather is the best in the world and is the place for cure
It is a house full a gardens surprises!
We went with a group of 8 and had a fantastic time. The house has a funky and eclectic decor, and there are lots of great spaces to hang out, eat, drink and play games. The place is close to Tepoztlan, but not too close (about 8-10 minutes by car) so the nights are peaceful. The caretakers were great: they cooked for us, manned the grill and cleaned up everything. They were friendly, prompt and effective and prepared great meals. Highly recommended.
excelente casa con vista increible! pasamos un fin de semana muy lindo, con un clima espectacular, una energia renovadora y una atencion barbara por parte de bernardo, el cuidador. TAmbien la casa cuenta con cocinera en caso de necesitarla. Muy recomendable y acogedora fue nuestra estadia en casa del sol! Agustina
We rented this house for 10 days near the end of March. Their were 7 of us and a good time was had by all. The house was colonial style with lots of art on the walls and around the grounds , nice decor, windows , great views and a few different spots to sit or eat in the garden. One bedroom with its own bathroom was on the ground floor off to the side which was very nice for the inlaws. The top bedroom had its own balcony with a nice place to sit and read or enjoy the views.
We hired the cook and she was wonderful. Besides being very plesent it seems like she can make anything and was able to make all our favorites. We ate like kings and queens and it was enjoyable for all of us to be able to eat together. The caretaker of the house was very hospitable as well. He took us in to town and to some other places when we wanted and did most of the shopping for us.
I would say that this vacation was one of the best family vacations that we have had. Enough activities for those that wanted and a beautiful place for some R and R. The grandparents stayed at the house most of the time which they really enjoyed and the rest of us explored the town , hiked the pyamid , went into Cuernavaca etc.
The house is outside of the Pueblo a bit which had some plusses and drawbacks. It was very quiet, we could see lots of stars and some beautiful sunsets.
The road going to the houses in this area was preaty bad, not paved for the last mile or so and lots of pot holes--but I bet this is what helps keep it quiet. It was to far to walk into town but the taxis were not to much. Also we did find a few scorpians in the house while we were there and got in the habit of checking our rooms each night.
We all had a lovely time and would gladly go back again
