Visitors report a magic about Casa Sofia, nestled at the foot of Taos Mountain in the beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountain range. One of the oldest adobe homes in the charming rural village of Arroyo Seco, Sofia holds the history of the region as her namesake did. On Ski Valley Road, a short walk to the village shops, galleries and fine places to eat, a 15-minute drive to the world famous Taos Ski Valley and a 15-minute drive to the Town of Taos. Country setting with horses across the way and buffaloes grazing nearby on Pueblo land.
Casa Sofia has all the contemporary conveniences of home and is decorated with a multi-cultural mix of arts & crafts from the Southwest. Spacious living room with kiva fireplace, master bedroom with bath, 2 additional bedrooms with bath, all with queen beds. The 3rd bedroom is reached through its neighbor bedroom or from a door to the outside, making the walk-through optional.
The Taos area offers a host of activities including world-class skiing, hikes to mountain wildflowers and waterfalls, white water rafting, hot air ballooning, gold panning, tennis, mountain biking. Taos Pueblo, a 10-minute drive, is the oldest continually occupied structure in North America offering tours, horseback riding, artisan shops and seasonal ceremonies and festivals open to the public. In town there is a rich choice of museums, restaurants, shops, a cinema – including a weekly art film series – classes and workshops. The Taos Film Festival takes place in March; the World Poetry Bout in June; the Solar Music Festival in July, Fiestas in August, the Fall Arts Festival in September; the Balloon Festival in October; the Winter Holidays are alight with luminarias.
Case Sofia, cool in summer and snug in winter, provides a lovely retreat for a slow read, revising a manuscript, painting from the roof or doing nothing at all. Climb the stairs or sipapu ladder to the roof deck and sit back for the gorgeous light show of a northern New Mexico sunset, and later, look back on your day in the hot tub under New Mexico's famous star-filled sky.
