This stunning villa was once part of the XVI century
Franciscan monastery of the Cathedral of Cuernavaca. Many original features of the colonial times are present in
this house, from stone floors, stairs, niches, tiles,
doors and chimneys. The present owners have maintained the charm of this house by furnishing it with typical
Mexican furniture, handicrafts, paintings, talavera tiles,
antiques and lots of flower pots and greenery. The rooftop terrace offers spectactular views.
The actor John Wayne lived in this home in the early 1940’s and this house has been an inspirational retreat home
for many well known painters, sculptors, designers and writers.

Cuernavaca's city center is in full view as well as the mountains to the north. Best of all, the sun
rise from amongst the two volcanoes (Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl) is truly a breathtaking site. A great place for a lovely view of the city centre. It’s ideal to breathe, relax and see the stars on a clear night.
