Hola - your hosts are Alix & Emile (who also have Casa Tres Leones - on the hill above the village).
This quiet 'casita' is fully self contained and is a great way to find out what Ajijic offers for a holiday or for retirement. Ajijic (Aheeheek) dates back to the mid 16th century yet has all the amenities of the 21st century. Your casita provides all you need to enjoy your holiday or reconnaissance trip and is a comfortable base to explore the Lake Chapala area. Its Mexican style makes it different from home - local tiles and wash basins, tropical coloured garden - gardener provided. The maid visits once a week to take care of all the domestics!
The narrow cobblestone streets remind us of old Spain. The Lake is 'magical' and Family is the most important part of village life in Mexico - these people are so friendly and welcoming and you are just minutes from the new "Malecon" (promenade).
Wandering along thro' the village (on foot) is the best way to learn about Ajijic. There are many simple village homes right beside magnificent Colonial styled haciendas usually behind high walls. The gardens are special and in the town Plaza just a couple of minutes from your casita there is always something going on.
Ajijic still retains its charm as an artists' colony so you may be tempted to take home paintings, photographs, sculptures, woven pieces, pottery, jewelry, silver etc etc.
Wednesday is market day - a pleasant walk away and the LCS (Lake Chapala Society) is open Monday to Saturday - a meeting place for many North Americans with film and book library and many other services.
There are also many thermal spas nearby and it is just so inexpensive to treat yourself to a day spa or even to get some dental or surgery work done.
We will supply you with a list of our favourite drivers, restaurants, shops, outdoor market days and day outings to artistic and historical sites.
Everything is on one floor so it's easy to be mobile and it's a LEVEL walk to most places.
As mentioned above - maid and gardener are provided as is drinking water, gas and local phone calls. ( If you wish to make international calls they will be charged to your account,but these days people bring cell phones or use their laptop).
The ONLY expense you have is the use of electricity.
A refundable security deposit is required when you make your booking.
This is refunded within 2 weeks of you vacating the property.
