About the Property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

This beautiful apartment is in a 16th century former monastery right in the centre of the Centro Historico. It's a peaceful enclave (where you can't hear any traffic) just 50 yards from Plaza Santa Domingo and less than five minutes walk from the Zocalo - the main central square.

This apartment contains a magnificent stone arch originally constructed by the monastery in the sixteen hundreds.
The apartment has been beautifully restored with original stripped wood floors and colour washed plaster walls and is on the first floor of the building which is arranged around a courtyard. Most of the residents of the 30 apartments are Mexican families so you will get a real flavour of life in Mexico City. The first floor is reached by a flight of wide stairs.

The bedrooms look onto the main central courtyard.
Kitchen/dining room - fridge/freezer, small cooker, sink tiled with hand-made tiles and coffee maker. Hand-made table and chairs to seat six.

Sitting room/lounge - sofa, hand made desk, chairs, small television & DVD player and Wifi.


Bedroom 1 - Double bed.

Bedroom 2 - Single bed.

Bathroom - Wet room with shower, toilet & marble wash-basin.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Sarah Tisdall and Arturo Reyes. We are both artists. Arturo has a degree from San Carlos in Mexico City and Sarah has a degree from The Slade School, University College London UK. We moved here 6 years ago from London. We enjoy the vivacity of the City and the beautiful old buildings in this area and the creativity shown by the Mexican Craftsmen in various disciplines. The climate is near perfect and it is easy to travel round the country from here.

Why the Owner Chose Centro Histórico, México, D.F., Mexico:
We like this ancient block of apartments and purchased one in addition to ours. We enjoy the vivacity of the City and the beautiful old buildings in this area and the creativity shown by the Mexican craftsmen in various disciplines. The climate is near perfect and it is easy to travel round the country from here.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Beautiful area which is being refurbished. Three blocks from the Zocalo, many beautiful buildings round about, an outlook towards Santo Domingo Church. Easy walking distance to many historic sites such as Templo Mayor, The Cathedral, San Ildefonso Museum, Museo Nacional de Arte, Palacio de Bellas Artes. Three metro stations within easy walking: Zocalo, Allende y Lagunilla. Taxis easily available very reasonably priced. Sunday cycling with free bike rentals on cleared streets in the Historical Centre. Plaza Santo Doming Cafe and good Mexican food at Hosteria Santo Domingo. The location is popular with film makers, most notably Denzil Washington in Man of Fire, Dennis Quaid and Forest Whitaker in Vantage Point. TV also like to use it for soaps and adds. Frequently other entertainers use the Plaza, for example music and dancers, and equestrian events from time to time.
