A serene historic property just 10 minutes walk from the La Paz seafront with a beautifully designed garden enclosed within a peaceful courtyard.
Step off the plane at La Paz airport and you are in the hot heart of a dusty Western... the surrounding landscape is desert, the sun beats down mercilessly on the cowering buildings, and in summer the streets of the town are deserted. But just off the Avenida Independencia is a heavenly haven from this scorching setting: El Angel Azul Hacienda ("The Blue Angel"). Discernible only by a blue sign and door set in bleached white walls.
Scrupulously restored recently, it has a tranquil and relaxed atmosphere, with rooms facing the cacti-filled courtyard under shaded colonnades. With shrines, sculptures, paintings, even an ensenada (clay ‘day of the dead’ skeleton) dotted about the garden, it feels more like staying in the villa of an arty friend.
