Visit "real" Mexico--on the lake, right in Chapala

Villa Lourdes is an unusual property in the town of Chapala, on the main promenade ("malecón") overlooking Mexico's largest freshwater lake. It is one of only two residences right on the Chapala malecón, within easy walking distance from the main Chapala square and the shopping district. Chapala is at 5,000 feet above sea level, and the lake is surrounded by mountains. The weather is among the best in the world.

Being on the upstairs balcony is like watching "National Geographic Live." Fascinating and beautiful, full of unexpected and fun surprises. We've watched pelicans and great blue herons, Aztec dancers on the plaza next to the house, unbelievable ...Read more

Additional Location Information

Villa Lourdes is in the downtown, tourist area of Chapala, convenient to restaurants, sporting, and cultural activities. The house itself is a photo opp in that many people stop to take photos of their families in front of the house and lake. In fact, the house is featured in several postcards of the area. During weekdays, the malecón is very quiet, with the pace picking up a bit on weekends as visitors come for day trips to lake. A wonderful nearby activity is to take a local "lancha" (boat) ride along the lake shore or just to stroll along the beach and check out the water birds. Benches are available all along the malecón, with vendors selling snacks and souvenirs on the other side of the malecón from Villa Lourdes.
On-street parking is available, and the police officer on duty next door will keep an eye on it for you. Local buses stop right behind the house, and a taxi stand is just a few blocks away. Buses to Guadalajara and other nearby towns leave every hour from the bus station located in downtown Chapala.
