We are a mexican couple who has been together for more than 20 years. We have two teenagers: a daughter, a son; and two pets: cats.
We are in the IT business and we love to travel. We always travel as if it was the last trip of our lives. For us, family, love and harmony are essential in life. We enjoy contemporary art and we are dedicated to promoting mexican artists and culture in every place we visit.
Pancho and I met scuba diving in 1994, therefore the sea, nature and outdoor activities are basic and necessary for both. We enjoy camping, scuba diving and sailing, sport in which we compete every month in Acapulco.
Lunch time is a special moment for us, a pause where we can enjoy and celebrate being together every day, a moment apart from the rush of the city where we prepare ourselves for the afternoon daily commitments.
We love Mexico and we are ambassadors of our country, we always talk about how great is the mexican spirit, its culture, gastronomy, beaches and its millionaire history. If we had to choose another country to live, it would be Italy for the same reasons we love Mexico.
We recognize ourselves as entrepreneurs because of our professional upbringing, we generate projects and ideas, some of which become business ventures. We've always been motivated by the risk, investing time, money and effort to develop new ideas with a purposeful end. Another factor deeply rooted in our family is ecology and self sustainability and seek to have the least possible impact on our environment and our planet .
We have a francophile part because the 4 of Pancho's grandparents were born in France and married in Mexico . With some friends, we spontaneously create an amateur theater group ten years ago, " La Compagnie de Théâtre a la Dérive ", where we enjoy making plays in French just for the pleasure of the whole process, costumes, learning the script and friendship. The group is composed mainly by frenchies living in México.
Today what bring us here is that ten years ago, on a sabathical year, we lived in a "Chateau" in France countryside, and we opened 11 rooms to host our beloved... more than a hundred friends and family members came to visit and stayed with us in that 12th century castle .
The uniqueness of this experience led us to replicate the model in Mexico, and we open our home with a project: Art Residence to share it with you, people with similar interests, that want to enjoy living among art in the village of San Angel, town founded 500 years ago and today immersed in one of the largest and most exciting cities in the world: Mexico City. Welcome !
In our country we say to our guests: "Mi casa es tu casa. My home is your home".
