Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Philippe is French and Gisele is Canadian. They have an appartment in France and also work there in the entertainment business doing cultural Shows.

Why the Owner Chose Xcalak:
We chose to buy in Xcalak and more particularly Casa Caracola because the snorkelling is fantastic right off the beach in front of the house. There are many coral heads there and the reef is not for off.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Philippe loves the sea and they both spend much of their time doing water activities such as snorkelling and free diving.
