THE ROOM
The word "Chapin" is the colloquial term for referring to anything Guatemalan. I named this room Chapin because of the art that has been hung in this room, showing local traditions in weaving and the life cycle of corn (from growing, harvesting, milling, grinding, tortilla making and celebrating life and this food item that is central to the Chapin way of life not just for its nutritious properties, but culturally revered and regarded as the substance from which man was created according to the Popol Vuh -- the scriptures central to the Mayan belief system). This room has a queen size bed, its own TV/DVD system for bedtime viewing, and its own bathroom. Please bear in mind it is a small room, here are some guidance regarding the room disposition:
- this is a small room, space under the bed for putting bags and belongings as well as a small hanging rack with hangers for your clothes.
- bathroom serves only this room. Small but has sink, shower and toilet. If you are very tall you may find it inconveniente, as shower corner is low. We suggest you book one of the other rooms in the house (see our profile).
- no outside facing windows: if you like little light when you sleep, this room is very appropriate as light levels during the day with doors and curtains closed are low :-)
- Rooms in the house do not lock with a key. The house is a space of healing, rejuvenation, safety. We foster this feeling we share with other guests. To that end we trust that all guests respect the house, its space, other guests and their property.

Our Rooftop Terrace: watch erupting volcanoes from the best vantage point! Savour mesmerizing scenery over your breakfast while you spend time with your morning coffee soaking in the view of the volcanoes and dissipating mists as the sun rises above the hills.

We love the social buzz - inviting you to connect with some new friends:
- cute (yet discreet) garden hens,
- tropical bees: reassuringly they are stingless! They are much smaller than regular bees, often mistaken for funny flies. See if you can find the different beehives and let use know!
- our garden cat: Indie! She talks a lot and is rather social. She lives outside, but will come inside if invited.
- our other guests. Yes, if you are just renting a room then you will likely not be alone in the house. (there are 4 other rooms that we rent out aswell - so why not bring your friends?). We offer you the opportunity to relate with some interesting people during your stay - sharing your stories and their's.

Nowadays with our often complicated lives, luxury lies in simplicity.

After you complete your reservation with us, we will offer logistical services for booking:
- private transportation/taxi
- private tours
- at home massage
- at home sauna experience
- at home Guatemalan Cooking classes
- home-cooked breakfast, lunch and/or dinner
- pre-arrival shopping

- Guatemalan organic coffee grown by the property owner

More than a building - where the sum of the parts deliver so much more! Nourish yourself from the wholeness of the spaces here. Please visit our other magical rentals on Lake Atitlán.

We also offer retreat hosting facilities on Lake Atitlán: teachers/facilitators please inquire.

Antigua Guatemala, Sacatepequez, Guatemala

The neighborhood is Antigua-like (cobbled stone street) yet 1.5 miles out of town center (less than 1 mile from the edge of town). It is very quiet around here - hearing countryside like night critters, roosters, different owls sometimes. No mainroad pass within hearing distance.

I would definitely encourage you to visit some of the neighboring colonial village around Antigua. Maybe we'll take a trip there together. They are so much more low key than Antigua... One almost gets a feeling of a forgotten era of Spanish colonialism when walking around some of the old main squares with pristine churches [... well sometimes crumbling... But still...]

I was born in France and travel between Guatemala where my projects are and Europe where my daughter lives.
