The Rotunda is a designer-decorated studio apartment that is part of Hacienda on the Hill in Ajijic, a very unique property that is over 200 years old. In fact, it is one of the oldest haciendas on Lake Chapala. Originally a seminary, it has played several other roles in its lifetime including that of gold mine.
The Rotunda has large windows, a king-size bed, a kitchenette with microwave, coffee maker toaster and a small fridge, a large sitting area, a bathroom with shower, cable TV, DVD and WiFi. This studio apartment retains some Mexican detail, including tile floors and an original quadrafoil window. The views from Hacienda on the Hill, some of the best in Ajijic, will take your breath away: Lake Chapala, Mount Garcia, and the village of Ajijic below, other mountains above. Hacienda on the Hill is ideally located just a 10-minute walk to the centre of the village. Do you feel like taking a hike? The best hiking trail up the mountain to either the “chapel” or the waterfall starts just outside your door.
Note: An unexpected surprise awaits you on the grounds – an exquisite tiny consecrated chapel.
You are free to wonder the property but not the main house.
