EXCELLENT EVERYTHING. VERY NICE HOUSE AND VERY GOOD SERVICE”
Veronica Bosque andJuly 2021
We had a great time at Casona Gonzalez. An oasis in Parras. An authentic historical home with all of the modern comforts. Incredibly spacious and room to roam. Very high-end property. Would recommend in a hearbeat. The host Fabian was very nice and the cook made the best chiliquilles I have ever had. The groundsman was incredibly attentive and took care of all of our requests. Great vacation home for those wanting to rest or to just visit the vineyards. ”
