Village (vil-ij) - a small group of houses in a rural area larger than a Hamlet. "Los Ranchos de Albuquerque" - A village within a city. Situated in the tranquil Village of Los Ranchos, the property is locally owned by the family of the long time balloon enthusiast couple who served as wonderful ambassadors to the sport for 40 years. Their love for extending hospitality to their visitors was evident in that they regularly opened their home and hearts to friends and strangers alike for a meal, a short visit, or an extended stay.
The home's decorative theme centers around hot air ballooning, as it was their passion for many, many years. Its location makes it ideal for vacationers traveling to see the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta in October, as well as the many other attractions throughout the area.
