About: Adele Hammond, artist, and founder of Abrazo Style (a fashion accessories company that works directly with indigenous artisans in Oaxaca and Chiapas, MX), lived in Oaxaca for five years with her husband, John, and daughter, Siena.
Why Oaxaca: We love Oaxaca, its culture, its climate, its art and living in a small village on the shoulders of the local mountains.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: What we love most about our place is that while other people are caught in traffic and fighting the congestion of the city, we are watching the sunset at the pool with a glass of wine, listening to the birds after having spent a lovely day in town.
