About this listing
My space has two houses available for rent. Also there are three separate rooms suitable for artists or meditators. Each unit has its own bathroom. One house has its own kitchen and there is also a communal kitchen.
The structures all have a unique architectural style and for the most are flowing organic forms made using the ferro cement technique. My wood art and furniture is a decorative feature in the houses.
We provide guidance in Vipassana meditation to those interested as well as classes in Tai Chi, sculpture and painting.
We have an organic garden, chicken house and a Tilapa fish pond.
Guests can count on space that is interesting functional and comfortable.
We are located on a bluff, have few close neighbours and are 10=15 minutes from Valle de Bravo which is designated as a Pueblo Magico and has many attractions for tourists and travellers. Near us there are stores providing basic necessities as well as a number of restaurants.
Guests have access to taxi service to Valle de Bravo nearby.
Buses to Mexico City are available in El Arco which is nearby.
Our place is unique for its view of the lake and the mountains that surround us. Our architecture has been admired by many, including architects. We are solidly situated on a former stone quarry that we are in the process of transforming into an organic self sustaining green environment.

We had a wonderful stay at Victor's place. It's truly a unique gem that Victor has created. Outside is the fish pond, the chicken-house, the treehouse, all the patios, and terraces. Inside is beautiful wood furniture. Highly recommended! I hope to return soon.
Victor was easy to communicate with and always responded quickly.
It's about 15-20 minutes from downtown Valle de Bravo.
Wonderful artistic house, clean, all services running (hot water) and great lake views! We felt as we were staying at Gaudí's Casa Batlló.
Victor is an incredible host! Always helpful, providing everything we might need, from utensils to advice. We requested a different check-out and was approved.
Great experience, we really hope to come back! Thank you Victor!
Hermosa casa. Vistas increíbles. Victor, un anfitrión genial. Entrar a su casa es entrar a su mundo y su imaginación. Tener en cuenta que es una casa en la montaña y por lo tanto tiene muchas escaleras.
Excelente casa a 15 minutos en coche del centro de Valle de Bravo, tiene vistas geniales al lago. A pesar de la poca anticipación con la que reservé, las habitaciones estuvieron listas y el cuidador Tomás nos dejó preparado lo que necesitamos. Muy buena opción para un fin de semana.
La casa de Víctor es hermosa. Con un diseño interesantísimo, acabados y decoración muy bellos. El es un excelente anfitrión, siempre cerca pero no más de lo debido. Es un poco complicado dar con la casa, pero una vez ahí, uno se la pasa muy a gusto.
Todo era como lo vi en la página, amplias habitaciones, limpias y en armonía con la naturaleza del lugar. Los detalles en madera de la casa eran espectaculares.
Nuestra experiencia en la casa de Victor fue plancentera. La decoracion y muebles interiores es muy bonito solo que era dificil conectarse de una habitacion a otra por la distribucion de la casa. Las vistas de la casa daban al lago y los atardeceres los disfrutamos mucho.
About the Host, Victor
I am an artist. Originally from Canada, I have been living in Mexico for many years. My medium is wood as well as acrylic. Tai Chi and Vipassana meditation feature strongly in my life and coordinate teaching in both.
We have a temascal on site and have regular no ceremonial sweat baths with healing herbs.
I love Thai food, all kinds of music and play drums, would like to go to Barcelona and really enjoy my family of my daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren.
