Five minutes from Oaxaca's famous city center, poineers in the "back to "movement exchange their family home which has been featured the the books "Living with Folk Art" and "Mexicolor". Stroll through terraced gardens, enjoy the fish pond, stargazing from upper balconies. Relax by the heated pool and be pampered by our kindly staff in this enchanting retreat with distinctive vernacular design.


More about us

  1. Guillermo and I came to reside in Oaxaca as young newley weds in 1965 when Oaxaca was a sleepy quiet town. Now it is the center of the nations most important artist and enviornmental movements. We have been an intergral part of this along with our 3 children. We feel priviliged to be able to call magical Oaxaca our home but are feeling a desire to experience other beautiful places. Guillermo is an art dealer and developer and I have been involved in environmental and women's movements over the years. We have 3 grown children, an artist, an anthropoligist and entrepreneur. 2 beautiful grandaughters and all of us are called by the song of far away places.
