Tradition & Experience
“Estancia de Valencia” is a comfortable and peaceful house, built in a moderate mexican style located only 5 blocks from the temple and ex-convent of Santo Domingo and the Ethnobotanical garden. It has three double rooms that emanate rest and relaxation. Admire the trinkets, art and gardens that fill the house and surround the kitchen that hosts delicious Oaxacan meals, prepared for you by your hosts that cater to your every need. The house was recently remodeled in 2005 by it’s current owners who conserved it’s original architectural characteristics such as the arches, the niches and the green “cantera” stone which is so representative of the city of Oaxaca. The neighboring building is the Municipal Historic Archives building of Oaxaca constructed in the beginning of the last century and, for that reason, the owners kept the large back windows which lead out into the garden area which gives the space an ancient and interesting feel.
