Casa Volta

Looking for a unique place to escape with friends and family? Look no further, Casa Volta is a spectacular open-air retreat nestled between the sea and jungle, that invites you to enjoy the wonderful climate of Puerto Escondido, Mexico. Designed by renowned architectural firm Ambrosietchegaray, the unique house reveals itself in the familiar vernacular form of three clay-fired brick vaults inviting guests to a fresh space under them. The house features two bedrooms housed in two of the vaulted spaces, with the third occupied by an open air kitchen-dining space. There are also several courtyards and a beautiful pool that runs trough the center of the house. The impressive property is available for rent though Airbnb.
