Car: Recommended

Patzcuaro is an unspoiled colonial town, built in the 16th Century and little changed since then. The town contains historical buildings and museums, and is near two pre-Hispanic Purhepecha ruins. It is the center of an extensive range of art and craft production, and is an excellent base for shopping for native crafts.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Your hosts, Janet and Steve, spend most of their time in Mexico City, where Janet works as a librarian. They spend long weekends and vacations at their home in Patzcuaro, and have an apartment in New York City, where they have lived for many years.

Why the Owner Chose Centro, Pátzcuaro, Mich., Mexico:
We looked in various parts of Mexico for a place to retire to, but fell in love with Patzcuaro and with the house on Dr. Coss the first time we saw them. The town is unique in being relatively unspoiled since the 16th Century, when it was the capitol of the state of Michoacan. When the capitol was moved to Morelia in the late 16th Century, Patzcuaro survived as if in a time warp. There is no place like it in Mexico. Aside form the historical interest, Patzcuaro enjoys almost perfect weather, with temperatures rarely reaching 80 degrees in the hottest part of the year; and in the coldest months of December and January, there will only occasionally be a light frost at night.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our house is built in the traditional Mexican style, with a series of rooms surrounding a courtyard and a large garden in the rear. The house is beautiful and spacious, and the gardens offer greenery and colorful flowers all year round. It is a wonderful place to relax, but it is also just a five-minute walk from the main plaza of the town.
