About Sofia Sanchez

I was born and raised here in Mexico City and I have lived in Coyoacán my whole life. Right now, i'm an Art History student at a university in the city. I am completely fluent in English and Spanish but I also speak French quite well.

Sofia Sanchez purchased this apartment in 1985

Why Sofia Sanchez chose Mexico City

My parents inherited the property from my grandfather. They began their married life and started a family here. I am very fond of it.

What makes this apartment unique

It is a specially quiet and well located property in one of the nicest areas of Coyoacan, where Mexican golden era movie stars used to live. Actually, the name of the street is Dulce (sweet) Olivia, in honor of Olivia de Havilland.

Originally separate colonial towns and then suburbs of Mexico City, San Angel and Coyoacán were both absorbed by the ever-growing capital. But they've managed to retain their original tranquility.

You'll want to linger in these elegant sections of town, especially in Coyoacán.

The Frida Kahlo and Leon Trotsky museums give intense, intimate looks at the lives of two famous people who were friends and lovers, and who breathed their personalities into the places where they lived.

Remember that museums close on Monday.

Weekends are liveliest at the Plaza Hidalgo and its neighboring Jardín Centenario (usually referred to as la plaza or el zócalo), where street life explodes into a fiesta with balloons, clowns, cotton candy, live music, and hypnotic dancing to the sound of drums. On weekends Plaza Hidalgo hosts a crafts market.'

Mi esposa y dos hijas pequenas estuvimos de visita en el DF visitando familia y todos quedamos absolutamente felices de nuestra estancia en la casa. El espacio fue ideal para que nuestras ninas de 3 y 8 meses jugaran sin preocuparnos de nada. Todos los servicios y atenciones de los duenos fueron excelentes. La locacion de la casa es insuperable estando en una de las zonas mas bellas y tradicionales de la ciudad. Ampliamente recomiendo esta propiedad.

Great Home in Coyoacan

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week at Sofia's duplex in Coyoacan. The property was so comfortable and pretty and in a great location, easy walking to the square, tons of restaurants, shopping and sightseeing. We particularly enjoyed Casa Azul, Iglesia San Juan Bautista and dining at Los Danzantes, Ave Maria and Corazon de Maguey. It was easy to take Uber into Mexico City, only around $12, to see some of the amazing museums (Antropologia, Museo Nacional del Arte) and churches. Also took Uber to the bus station for a trip to Teotihuacan.

Sofia was great to deal with, very responsive and accommodating. The duplex had everything we needed and more. We would love to stay there again on our next trip to DF.

Muy buena opción en la zona de Coyoacán

  • 5 of 5

Tuvimos una muy grata estancia, en gran medida debido a las personas que administran la propiedad y que siempre estuvieron al pendiente de que todo estuviera en orden y acorde a nuestras necesidades. El lugar esta muy bien ubicado si uno debe realizar actividades hacia el sur de la Ciudad, ampliamente recomendado.

Perfect Coyoacan home

  • 5 of 5

My husband, my sister and I stayed here for one week. We were extremely comfortable in this lovely, well appointed home.

I was able to cook in the kitchen, location convenient to markets and museums.

A few problems we had were quickly resolved by owner. We would definitely stay here again!
