We stayed in Canton Mansion last year and we were so impressed with virtually everything about our stay that we vowed to stay here again ,this time much longer.
So this year we stayed full three weeks ,and loved every minute of it.
It's the type of the place you just do not want to leave.Merida is a stunning city ,full of cultural events and good restaurants,and still we spent most of our time here this time inside of the house ,enjoying the cool and unusual pool ,the shady patio around it ,reading in the hammock ,the large library not only of books ,but also of movies ,the two spectacular inner patios,well equipped kitchen ,humongous stylish bedrooms,stylish dining room like from a good Italian museum.
And this time we were lucky and Chris Collins Lee was in residence in Merida ,so we could enjoy the classical music of his string quartet when they were practicing in the music room.Needless to say ,we met Chris in person ,and enjoyed three symphony orchestra concerts where Chris plays the first violin,in Merida theather and concert hall 5 minutes away.
Like during our first stay last year ,this year all was impeccable, made possible by Neil,the house manager ,although I would rather call him mayordomo,to stress his excellent service, and of course ,the overall spirit of the entire fine stay.
We would grant 6 stars ,if it only was possible .
Next year we are coming again ,again for 3-4 weeks stay.
