Lakeside Guide to Lake Chapala, Ajijic, Mexico

Casa del Encanto

At a Glance

Stay in this “charming” wooden caravan tucked into the secret garden of a French painter living in Mexico.

More Info

Casa del Encanto — the House of Charm — is a unique way to make your stay in Ajijic extra special: a wooden caravan in a garden just half a block from the Lake Chapala shore.

Artist Cathy Chalvignac, who lives on the property, will attend to all your needs. There is a comfortable front porch to unwind after a day out, plus the patio area outside the caravan.
