Each of the four apartments has its own unique character and amenities.
The house, while being newly-built, was designed to look like it has always been a part of the landscape.
Warm colours, old wood, rock walls and adobe made from the garden's soil create a soft, pleasing palette.
This gives you a general idea of the location of the apartments in the building.
Xochitlan (Show-Chit-Lan) is a lovely, intimate studio apartment and is perfect for either a couple or a single traveller. Two private, covered terraces overlook the garden.

Glass double doors lead from the bedroom to the upper terrace. There, a fully-stocked kitchenette has a two-burner gas stove and oven, refrigerator, blender, toaster and coffee maker. All necessary utensils and good quality pots and pans, as well as attractive dishes and glassware, allow you to prepare and enjoy breakfasts, lunches and light suppers.
