Eco-Friendly Cabin Escape in Valle de Bravo is all about Going Green

How we wish we could escape the constant grind of daily life far more often? A gorgeous natural escape that sits on the outskirts of Nevado de Toluca volcano and in the town of Valle de Bravo in Mexico, Mi Cielo promises that perfect retreat. The beautiful getaway combines modern comfort with classic cabin style offering the best of both worlds. Yet, there is more to marvel here than merely aesthetics with the three units of the retreat – one main house, a vegetable garden and an outdoor kitchen, also embracing eco-friendly design principles at every turn. Raúl Galindo + Patricio Galindo ensure that not only are you draped in greenery but go green all the way in here!

Vaulted ceilings and cabin style design shape the Mi Cielo Lodge in the woods

The hotel can operate completely off-grid with solar energy, candle lights and recycled water meeting its energy needs. Thanks to its secluded location in the mountains, the lodge feels like a world in itself – a place where you can discover yourself as much as you discover the pleasure of living in close proximity with nature. Crafted using pine wood and stone, you can easily spot the vernacular beauty of the cabins.
