'Can't tell you how much we fell in love with La Source. Your descriptions of the place are exactly on point - no exaggerations - and the photos, while accurate, just begin to suggest the beauty of the view. Heaven indeed.
We really would love to come again - next week would be best (just kidding).' Barry P, Seattle
'Based on the photos on the web site and in the brochure, my expectations were high for La Source. I am pleased to report that the reality was even better. The house is great for a family or group of friends, the grounds flowered and natural and the view of the lush valley below enchanting. It makes a great base for touring the region. I give it a 12 on a 10 scale.' Harvey B, Taos NM
'It's difficult to get a real idea of the place from the photos, but it is exactly what we'd dreamed of. A view to die for; totally quiet; a delightful home; and, most importantly, endless tennis, swimming, table tennis etc to keep the kids happy. I couldn't think of a nicer house
