Villa Ganz

Guadalajara, Mexico

Prices From: $200

Villa Ganz is a wonderfully restored charming mansion on one of the main boulevards leading into downtown Guadalajara, Mexico´s second largest city. After spending the day exploring its historical downtown area, put your feet up in front of a roaring fire, grab a magazine and help yourself to complimentary chilled Chardonnay and snacks. Providing all the comforts you´re used to and then some is what the informally elegant Villa Ganz, just 10 minutes from Guadalajara´s historic heart, is all about.

Lovingly converting this 20th-century mansion into an intimate inn while combining the best traditional features with life-simplifying amenities, the hospitable owner made each of the 10 spacious and beautifully detailed guest accommodations very unique.

Check out the locally collected antiques and fine craftsmanship throughout and you´ll know why this part of Mexico is an interior decorator´s mecca. With world-class shopping, dining and cultural events at your doorstep in this exciting, high-energy city, the Villa´s earthy tones, comfy common areas and fragrant, statue-studded gardens are rejuvenating counterpoints.

Continental breakfast served in the courtyard or garden is included, and a well-stocked bar ensures you´ll never get thirsty. Restaurants of note are nearby, but if you´re too relaxed to bother venturing out, Villa Ganz´s chef will gladly set up an informal luncheon or candlelit dinner, which is the specialty of the house.
