Valle De Bravo house description

Set in a valley, surrounded by pine covered mountains leading down to the eastern shore of spectacular Lake Avandaro, Valle de Bravo is known as one of the most beautiful towns in Mexico. With natural beauty, authentic Mexican architecture, a thriving artistic community, and many outdoor activities (boat trips, sailing, swimming, paragliding, water skiing, golf, horseback riding, hiking trails, Monarch butterfly sanctuary) Valle de Bravo has attracted visitors from around the world.

One of the most beautiful homes in Valle, this property is located in an exclusive area of town (just 4 blocks from the main plaza and a 10 minute walk to the lake). From the house you have spectacular views of the lake, mountains and the rooftops of the town.

The house was built by Francis Kalnay, a Hungarian writer who came to Valle de Bravo many years ago and immediately fell in love with it. Combining his Hungarian and Mexican sensitivities, he created this unique custom-made home and made it his own. Each corner of this unique and very specially decorated and well kept home, offers breathtaking views. Through the beauty of its exquisite and well chosen décor and calming sunsets, this is the place for relaxation.

The house has two levels. The living room, dining room, kitchen and well apointed terraces on the ground/entrance level. And on the lower level, two exquisite master bedrooms, (one king size and one queen size bed). Both master bedrooms feature a fireplace and one also has a private terrace. In addition there is one smaller bedroom with two single beds. Each bedroom has a full bathroom and closet. A full kitchen and charcoal grill on the terrace make cooking very easy. The house is on a dead-end street and has off street parking.

The house intentionally does not have a TV, or video. You are invited to bring your iPod, a speaker is availble. The sound of your own selected music plus the church bells at a distance will accompany you during your stay. You will enjoy complete privacy. These beautiful surroundings will enrich your personal creativity.

Activities on site and nearby: two golf courses, sailing, jet skiing, biking, hiking, tennis, boating, swimming, mountain biking, fishing, horseback riding, kayaking, waterskiing, windsurfing, wildlife viewing, rock climbing, paragliding, hang-gliding, health beauty spa, shopping, art galleries, handcraft market, regional products market, and lovely walks through the woods.

During the summer months, mornings are sunny and warm and the afternoon rain will invite you to light a fire. After the downpour, be ready to enjoy one of the many beautiful sunsets.

If you choose to have our cook pamper you, she will present you with various menu possibilities. The town also has excellent prepared food (gourmet take-out), a lovely market with fresh produce, health oriented shops and a range of restaurants. Some of these will be closed during week days. These days in Valle are the most peaceful and quiet. Although some fancy places will be closed, the many smaller shops and restaurants will be open.

The night of September 15 is the celebration of Mexican Independence. From each of our terraces you will have a firsthand view of the incredible fireworks all through the town and on the lake. Music festivities continue through the long weekend.

Christmas is spectacular with cool evenings and beautiful sun and sky during the day. Various concerts and cultural activities are scheduled throughout the week. The fireworks on New Year´s eve are something to be seen! From our terraces you will have a front row seat!

For your comfort, taxi service from the Toluca airport can be arranged.

                        We loved the charming architecture, art and decorations all over the house. The views, the location, the great meals that were prepared for us were all so wonderful. Rent this house now. You won't regret it.

                        Altamente recomendable!!! De verdad que esta casa hace honor al título que sus dueños le escogieron: La casa más bonita de Valle! Muy cómoda; con servicio de hotel pero con calor de hogar. Esta llena de detalles hermosos con una decoración de un gusto finísimo que refleja el amor que sus dueños tienen por su propiedad. La vista es única, espectacular ya que se domina todo el pueblo y la vista hacia el lago y Avandaro es sin igual. La casa tiene una ubicación magnifica que permite bajar al pueblo caminando cómodamente sin necesidad de mover el auto. La señora Eva quien es la cocinera y encargada del aseo es una persona muy agradable, con un excelente carácter dispuesta a ayudar en todo lo que se necesite y con un sazón de diez! Edgar, el dueño, es una persona sumamente educada, muy cumplido y ha sido un gusto tratar con el. Por todo lo anteriormente mencionado resultaron unas vacaciones de fin de año increíbles y esperamos pronto regresar!

                        The property was as described and even more beautiful. Made from such quality materials. The housekeeper was an absolute delight, and worked hard to cater to our whim. What a treat it was to have freshly made delicious food, and to have her prepare and clean no less. What a treat. The proprietor, Edgar, is very helpful and responsive. I can't wait to come back with my family.

                        I booked this house for a paragliding trip with my 2 "gringo" friends. First time in Valle and had a ball. The house is outstanding, totally comfortable and in a really good location. It is up the hill enough to provide a little distance from the traffic noise but an easy walk to the square. Wifi works fine, showers are hot and good water pressure. But the absolute best part of the house is Eva the cook/maid. OMG can she cook some good food. I had never really had authentic Mexican food before and was just blown away with her skill plus the fact that she genuinely liked taking care of us. I will be coming back every year and this is where I am staying. Thanks again!

                        We had a wonderful 2 night stay in Valle de Bravo. The home had great charm and was the perfect location to walk everywhere. The housekeeper cooked excellent food and was such a treat. Thank you!

                        La casa realmente nos encantó: tiene una vista maravillosa al lago, al pueblo y a las montañas, que se puede disfrutar desde las dos terrazas, la sala y las recámaras principales; además, está decorada con muy buen gusto y cada rincón es especial. Disfrutamos mucho las mañanas en las terrazas y las noches alrededor de la chimenea. El dueño respondió de manera oportuna y profesional, siempre con suma amabilidad. Eva, la cocinera, nos consintió (y conquistó) con su deliciosa comida y su calidez mexicana. Muchas gracias y esperamos regresar pronto!

                        We had a wonderful time in this quiet, gorgeous house, soaking in its views. Eva, the housekeeper and cook, took very good care of us. We spent one afternoon visiting the butterflies in the pine forest - that was beautiful. Eva's lunch was one of the best meals I have eaten in Mexico in the eight months I have lived here. We had a light dinner at Da Ciro's, which was also lovely. The house itself is peppered with weavings and art that made me certain I was in the home of someone who loves beautiful things. I look forward to returning.

                        WE HAD THE PLEASURE OF RENTING THIS BEAUTIFUL HOUSE DURING THE HOLLY WEEK AND WE WERE TRULY FASCINATED; SINCE FOR THE FIRST TIME, THE VERY ATTRACTIVE PHOTOS EXHIBITED FOR PROMOTION NOT ONLY SHOW THE REAL PLACE, BUT THE PROPERTY, ONCE BEING THERE, EXCEEDS ANY EXPECTATION. IT HAS SUCH A WELCOME ATMOSPHERE, SO NICELY DECORATED AND INSTALLED, WITH THE MOST OF GOOD TASTE, ESPECIALLY CONCERNING REAL MEXICAN DETAILS. THE VIEW IS SIMPLY UNBELIEVABLE. THE BEST PAINTING OF A MEXICAN ANCIENT TOWN WITH A LAKE WOULDN’T MAKE IT JUSTICE. YOU CAN SPEND THE WHOLE DAY ONLY AT ANY TERRACE ENJOYING IT. BESIDES IT IS WALKING DISTANCE TO ANYTHING YOU LIKE (CHURCH, SHOPS, FOOD MARKET, LOCAL CRAFTS), ETC. WE ARE MORE THAN SATISFIED WITH THE CHOICE AND WE CERTAINLY RECOMMEND THIS HOMECOMING HOUSE LARGELY, WHERE ONE COUNTS WITH CLEANING SERVICE AND MARVELLOUS COOKING. DEFINITELY WE WILL GO FOR IT AGAIN, EVERY TIME WE DECIDE TO GO TO VALLE DE BRAVO.

                        We spent a delightful weekend at this house. Our room was very comfortable and the spacious living area was very welcoming to those who wanted to read, work, or chat. We particularly enjoyed eating on the terrace and enjoying the view of the city and the lake. The owner decorated the house in excellent taste using Mexican art and crafts. Also it was nice to be able to walk down to the town to shop, have a coffee, or enjoy a meal.

                      About: Like the Hungarian who built the house, the previous owners came from Europe. The fell in love with Valle de Bravo, the first town they visited outside Mexico City and spent ten years trying to buy this house. Now the house belongs to their daughter, an artist/photographer, who finds it a restful place which inspires her own creativity.

                      Why Valle De Bravo:
                      When we arrive to Mexico, my father was advised by the European Community to come to Valle, as one of the two most beatiful towns in the country.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      One of the most outstanding sights of the whole town in Valle, in a hill just four streets from the center of town. Five minutes walk to the charming streets of the pueblo and market. No need to use the car to go to galleries, museums, restaurants, etc.
