Morelia apartment description
Advantages of Casa Feliz:
This house is located in the charming Vista Bella district on the side of the mountain, a brisk walk from the historic center (about 30 minutes) and on major bus and cab routes. It was designed by Jaques Cotes, the architect who designed the two world class hotels across the street, Villa Montana and Villas San Jose. It is filled with interesting nooks and crannies, and furnished with many authentic colonial antiques and colorful arts and crafts from the region. The rooms are spacious and great for entertaining, with beautiful views of patios, gardens, and the mountains. Pool, sports and tour services can be contracted through the Villas San Jose, across the street. There are 5 world class restaurants and several galleries within five minutes. The house manager, Mario is friendly and helpful, although short on English. He enjoys driving guests around for a reasonable fee.
Morelia is an amazing city, one of the true colonial gems of Latin America. It has gone through extensive restoration as a result of being selected as a UNESCO world treasure. As well as many museums, monuments and churches, the city boasts a robust night life of free concerts ranging from traditional folkloric, jazz, rock, reggae and classical. The streets shut down for traffic on Saturdays for the sound and light show, La iluminacion, of the municipal cathedral. The city has dozens of beautiful restaurants to meet the needs of all palets and pocket books. The best is the portales at night where Morelianos gather to chat, eat, and watch the constant parade of people. Many seasoned travelers find the people from the state to be the friendliest and kindest in a country known for hospitality. Nearby towns like Patzcuaro and Uruapan beckon with indigenous culture and natural beauty. In spite of some bad publicity recently, I feel safer walking around in Morelia than most major world cities. Not of minor importance is the fact that prices are about half what once finds in the areas more frequented by tourists.

Year Purchased: 1995
About: I am a professor of Spanish at a small private university in Chicago. I established a study program in Morelia, after investigating sites all over the country. Students have never been disappointed in their experience, many returning repeatedly to visit their Mexican friends and family.
It is the perfect combination for me. The culture here feels authentically Mexican in all its depth and variety. I have a circle of treasured friends who feel like family, with whom I plan to spend much of my time in my later years.
