About the Property

1 Bedroom, 2 Bath Casita And Living Areas

My home and rentals are situated on a hill with expansive views overlooking the colonial town of Alamos and the more distant mountains of the Sierra Madre. The property consists of a two story 'Casa Grande' and a smaller Casita. You have the opportunity to rent one or two bedrooms on the first floor of the Casa Grande (VRBO listing # 567811) and have full access to a living, dining room and kitchen. The Casita offers privacy, with one bedroom, two bathrooms and a living/dining room area plus kitchen. At times the Owner's Unit is available, a one bedroom apartment on the second floor of the Casa Grande. The views from this property are spectacular! Relax with a book on one of the patios or swim in the large solar heated pool.

The property is fenced and gated providing security and ample parking for your car. A five minute walk takes you to the cobblestone streets and historic buildings of the Plaza de Armas. There your will find restaurants featuring famous Sonoran food, artesan shops to browse, a lovely colonial church, and a fascinating museum depicting life in Alamos during the 17th and 18th centuries. Stroll these streets or book a birding tour, a rafting trip down the Rio Mayo river or go horseback riding and explore the surrounding countryside. Stop by the five star Hacienda de Los Santos for a glass of tequila, a meal, or a visit to their spa. Return home for a drink on the patio viewing the sunset over the mountains and the twinkling lights of the city.

Alamos is a 17th Century Mexican Colonial town in the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains. Our home is situated on a hill overlooking the magical pueblo of Alamos, and looking off to the foothills of the Sierras, the vistas extend for hundreds of miles.

Five minutes' walk down the hill, you will find yourself on the cobblestone streets of the historic Plaza de Armas where you can feast your eyes on buildings exhibiting the classic architecture from Mexico's Colonial period. Restaurants featuring famous Sonoran

food await as you stroll the streets and gaze at the restored mansions built hundreds of years ago by the great silver barons who made their fortunes in Alamos and the smaller, nearby town of Aduana.

Year Purchased: 2002

About: My family and I had been enjoying vacations in Mexico for some years before I retired. I spent many years teaching high school English, speech and drama and raising three children. We fell in love with Alamos, enchanted by the friendliness of both the Mexican residents and the ex-pat community. We kept returning to visit, especially to enjoy the week long Ortiz Tirado Music Festival held in late January. Before we knew it, I had purchased a small, dilapidated house on a beautiful view lot, and spent the next few years remodeling the casita, building the pool, planting flower and vegetable gardens and finally building and decorating the two story Casa Grande. I have an apartment on the second floor of the Casa Grande and rent out a two bedroom unit on the first floor as well as the lovingly restored one bedroom, two bath Casita. My family and I have made many friends in this gracious community and have sponsored Fe y Esperanza, a group of local women who came together to form a non-profit which supports cancer prevention programs for the community and gives assistance to locals who have been diagnosed with cancer. A number of our ex-pat friends had years ago started philanthropic groups. One, Amigos, benefits many children in Alamos by providing resources to buy uniforms and books for families who could not otherwise afford to send their children to school. Another, Comadres, provides help for people who can't afford to buy food or medicine. Many of us also especially enjoy going to the History Club which meets on Thursday from October through May and discusses highlights of the history of Alamos, of the state of Sonora, and of the country of Mexico.

Why El Volantín, Alamos, Son., Mexico:
I had no intention of buying a property in Alamos. I have a condo in Tucson (our home base), and a condo on the beach in San Carlos, Sonora. But I was seduced by the beauty of the views from the property and could see the potential it had. Also, my family and I loved the fact that it was just a 10 minute walk to the center of town, the Plaza de Armas. So, within a few days of seeing it, I made a deal with the owner, who was now living in Florida, and within a few months had begun renovating the original little home.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Sitting on the patio of the original casita, in one direction one can see the beautiful dome of the historic church, the crenelated top of the Palacio (18th century government building), and the mountains of the Sierra Madres unfolding in the distance. A quarter turn and the peak of 6,000 foot Mt Alamos dominates that view. The property has several very large mesquite trees that attracted birds, and I envisioned flower and vegetable gardens, a large fountain, and a pool to complete the view. A few years later I embarked on building and decorating a second house, and settling in on the second floor while renting out the first floor and the lovingly rehabilitated Casita. Our guests now love sitting by the pool or on one of the patios, gazing out on the same vistas that enchanted us almost ten years ago. We never tire of watching the ever changing seasonal colors of the hills and mountains, and trying to identify the birds drawn by the fountain, the foliage, the infinity edge pool and splash pool. Tired of relaxing at home? Walk a five minutes down the hill and enjoy a meal at Dona Lola's, our favorite 'neighborhood' Mexican restaurant or go to the five star Hacienda de ls Santos resort and restaurant for a fine meal and free musical entertainment.
