HACIENDA ALTA - on a ridgeline above the valley reaching to the lake - the upper portion of the former Hacienda La Labor.
Minutes away from downtown Chapala to the west and the Chapala Country Club to the east, yet a world away in terms of tranquility and security. Bordered by horse pastures to the north, and agricultural fields all around. Located on a ridgeline above the valley, securing the exquisite views from any blockage while providing steady light breezes which keep the property cool and bug-free.
10 minutes to the Chapala malecon, shops nightlife and restuarants or to the Soriana supermarket, less than 15 minutes to Walmart or SuperLake in San Antonio Tlayacapan.

A Planned Community - but no restrictions!
Hacienda Alta has been planned as a haven for those who are tired of the stresses of every day life and want to live close to the action in Chapala and Ajijic, but above it all. The developers of Hacienda Alta live next door, with their stables, pastures and horses. One of the owners is an MCRP (Masters in City and Regional Planning) and has given detailed attention to planning the layout and development of Hacienda Alta. A great deal of money has been spent to transfer the land title from the campesino-based ejido land, to properly titled rural land, and then to six approved building lots. The lots are situated so that each resident can build their own home and gardens without blocking the views for other residents. And oh those views! And the quiet! And the perennial soft breezes!
No bobos! Mosquitos are rare....
After much thought, and after seeing what other developments have experienced, the developers decided not to have a neighborhood association or fraccionamento for Hacienda Alta. Each lot/house will be privately owned and not subject to common rules or property assessments. The only restriciton on your deed and your property, is that whatever you build must not block the views from the other lots at Hacienda Alta. As the land slopes gently down from the main road/entrance gates to the lower lots, this is not an onerous restriction, you will still be able to build a two story house if you so desire.
