About Kitty Franzetti
My husband Joe and I have lived in Taos for over 40 years and love it!
Kitty Franzetti purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1991
Why Kitty Franzetti chose Arroyo Seco
I built this little casita in Taos just before my mother died in 1991. I wanted a small private cozy house that was easy to maintain in a quiet area, its really a dream come true!
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
One of the best qualities of this property is the views and the quiet of the area. The property sits on 1 and a half acres, and because we are in a very rural area the stars at night are unimaginable, and really wonderful to enjoy from the warmth of the hot tub, (as long as you don't get your hair wet!) We also feature a new gas fireplace for those chilly nights! You can often hear the coyotes at night and occasionally see the elk go by in the neighboring fields.

Loved being slightly down the mountain and close to the charming town of Arroyo Seco for a dinner or grocery trip. Hot tub was a great perk after a day on the slopes, and the home is lovingly tended to. Glad we had 4 wheel drive on a wet day as the road gets a bit boggy but was perfect spot for us to ski by day and relax by night!
Sit in the hot tub and watch the stars.
Best vacation ever!!
So glad we could rent this adorable casita. Hosts were super friendly. Will come here again for sure. As well as recommend to our friends. Thank you Kitty and Joe
Thanks so much for letting us host you again — and even more for hosting us for the lovely Italian dinner! We look so forward to seeing you next year!
Just as described. Hummingbirds were an added pleasant surprise. Would stay again.
We had a great time with Anita and Vader… They’re wonderful guests, and Anita is careful to keep the property we’ll maintained. We gladly recommend them to other hosts and hope they will be back
The most adorable Casita
The house was perfect! The location was great, so close to the ski slopes and to the cute little town Arroyo Seco! The Hot tub was a perfect way to end a long day on the slopes! The Dogs Guido and Ellie were SO sweet, my son looked forward to seeing them everyday when they came for a visit. Kitty was super sweet and so helpful, replied to my questions so quickly. We will be coming back next year! ❤️
Great romantic getaway just minutes from Taos and Skiing
Kitty’s place was cozy and very well stocked with supplies...blankets, toiletries, kitchen utensils, etc. We loved the hot tub out on the deck and used it every day. Our 2 small dogs had a great time exploring the fenced yard. What a beautiful house it is and so remote- feeling yet just minutes away from tons of restaurants, bars, Taos and the Taos Ski Valley.
The house has a sleeper sofa as well as a loft bed upstairs. The stairs were fine for us but a little steep for the dogs. I think if older folks were staying here it might be good to have some anti-slip backing or paint on them. Lots of windows and great natural light through the whole house. Internet was fine for checking email and surfing Web. Had a wonderful time!
Taos is a cultural center with many music, art and history attractions. Don't miss the Taos Pueblo, the oldest continuously inhabited pueblo in the country
