About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

THE BEST SIDE OF THE LAKE.- El 'Alto Lucero' is a new house located exactly where you want to be, up high on the west side of Lake Zirahuen in a tiny and quiet community called Copandaro de Zirahuen. The highest and most panoramic view to the lake. Real peace and quiet are among our great assets in this lovely rural area, of course the view is unparalleled.
A beautiful pink paving stone and cobblestone road shaded by trees connects this slice of paradise in a 9 minute pleasant drive to Zirahuen town. Nevertheless, we have some small convenient stores 'tienditas' in the area.

Also on this side of the lake, 'La Troje de Ala', one of the best restaurants around the Lake with a pier and row boats for rent. 'Miralago' is another great restaurant where you can enjoy an international menu.
Also happily located a few yards away, at a walking distance is 'Agua Verde', an ecological center of recreation and fun surrounded by trees. You can take a boat, ride a bike, ride a horse, play 'gotcha' and fly over the lake suspended in the air (Zip Line). Great place to have lunch and drinks after enjoying a few hours of adventure. Note: The restaurants and ' Agua Verde', are open only during Weekends and Holidays.

All in all, 'El Alto Lucero', is the greatest place in the area! ...oh, and please, do not forget to visit our website. Look for the links that appear bellow on this page!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Hi, my name is Alejandra and my husband´s name is Enrique, we both are from Mexico City. We used to be in the advertising business but 10 years ago we decided to run away from all the noise and stress of the big city. First we lived in Patzcuaro and lately we had the greatest opportunity in our lives to move to Lake Zirahuen, one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. We just finished building this new casita for rent which is near ours. We both speak English and are ready to welcome people interested in sharing this slice of paradise with us.

Why the Owner Chose Copandaro, Mich., Mexico:
Being lake Zirahuen one of the most beautiful lakes in Mexico, we decided to sell our house in Patzcuaro and relocate in this magnificent area: It is quiet, gorgeous, not polluted. The water is a show that constantly renews itself. Local people are friendly and we are near the greatest colonial cities that have all the amenities, activities and services that you can find in big cities. Patzcuaro, Morelia, Uruapan, Santa Clara del Cobre just to mention a few.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The greatest view to the lake, real peace and quiet, clean air, lots of trees. Among other things, you can exercise riding a bike around the lake or hiking on the beautiful trails that abound near by. By the way.... did we mention that we have the greatest view to the lake???
