Antigua villa description

The beautiful Spanish colonial villa was designed and furnished by an artist. The property is set into the mountainside of the extinct Volcan de Agua and looks out over the rolling hills and valley below and two other volcanoes. Surrounded by farmland with compesinos walking their burrows to the fields, the property is a refuge from the bustle of urban life. Birds serenade the sunrise.

Within the walled compound is one other home in addition to the guard/doorman and his wife who cleans the house three days a week (additional maid service can be arranged). A full time gardener tends the magnificent gardens where you can stroll and pick flowers to fill the house. The second floor is dedicated to the master bedroom suite with dressing room and bath, beautiful views and hammocks on covered terraces. The two bedrooms on the ground floor share a bathroom between them which also serves as the guest bathroom.

I just built a beautiful wood fired sauna that seats 8 people or two people can lie down on the long benches. When you step outside, there is a cold shower. We have been having sauna parties and have friends over to relax and then have supper together.

My four footed companion, Barley, a 7 year old German Shepherd who is very gentle and well behaved goes on walks with me and renters throughout the countryside. He quickly bonds with adults and children alike and often ends up being the favorite of young visitors.

All year round one eats outside on the terraces by the cascading fountain. Downtown Antigua with its restaurants, sites and night life is only 10 minutes away by car. A four wheel drive mini-SUV is included in the rental for an additional $250 per month or $75 per week.

Please check the availability calendar before contacting me as my place is usually rented months in advance.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: I am an artist and spend my winters in Guatemala and my summers in the Boston area.

                  Why the Owner Chose Antigua:
                  This is simply the most beautiful place I had ever visited. The Mayan people have something beautiful in their spirits to match the beauty of the place. The climate was described by the Spanish who chose this as their capital as "primavera eterna" or eternal spring. The elevation means it is never hot and neither is it ever cold. Everything grows all year round and there is a profusion of wild flowers in the surrounding countryside as well as in my garden. You have to come here to believe it.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  It is the tranquility and proximity to nature that restores my soul. I do wonderful creative work in this uplifting environment.
