Property description

Located just on the edge of town in a quiet, pastoral country setting, Casa Gallina's 'El Gallo Grande' is just a five minute drive to the historic plaza.

Colorful and cozy. Comfortable and quiet. Calm and Uncluttered. Casa Gallina’s 'El Gallo Grande' is a three-bedroom, traditional, elegant, sprawling old adobe home, gorgeously furnished and supplied with more than you would expect in a vacation rental. Most guests who stay here spend more time at home than they ever expected to!

Natural mud plasters and richly colored stucco adorn the walls, arches and kiva fireplace and saltillo tiles and antique rugs are at your feet. The colors, textures and décor are true New Mexico charm.

The queen sized Ponderosa pine framed bed is fitted with fine all-cotton or flannel linens and an oversized goose down comforter and pillows.

Step out the French doors and you’re in your own private courtyard garden. Watch my flock of beautiful chickens free roam in the yard. Sit in the New Mexican sun or under the stars and drink in the magic of Taos.

Cook up a beautiful meal in the fully equipped cook's kitchen and dine at a gorgeous antique dining room table next to a wood burning kiva fireplace. Light some candles and sink in for the night.

And if you absolutely need to check in with civilization, El Gallo is completely furnished with satellite TV and a laptop computer with high speed Wifi connection at your disposal.

Your host, Richard, lives a few doors down the road to answer any questions and tend to any needs that you may have. And best of all, there are a gorgeous, well-tended flock of generous hens that provide all the fresh eggs that you'll need to cook up for breakfast each morning!

Casa Gallina’s 'El Gallo Grande' is perfect for solo retreats or romantic getaways for two, or for families or couples traveling together ... it is priced according to how many guests come ... it's not to big for two ... and it's not too small for three couples!

Stay with me here at Casa Gallina and I’ll guarantee that you’ll want to come back!
