Tzampoc is the masterpiece of Italian born Lucian Mamberto Diana (ceo of Tazampoc) created in 1990 with architect Edy Amilcar Ovalle. Built as an ecologically minded, non optically invasive house on the slope of the Santa Catarina Palopo’s mountain called Tzampoc (Kaqchiquel word for ‘ White Mountain’) in the stunning setting of Lake Atitilan and the three Volcano’s that sculpt it.
The Italian influenced property boasts 6 bedrooms including, 2 private cabanas, 2 deluxe en-suite rooms, and two standard rooms, all with views of the lake. It also features an infinity pool, pool side bar, Jacuzzi and sauna, indoor and outdoor kitchens and beautiful gardens that surround it, which are home to numerous birds including those that come to stay during their migration period.
Tzampoc buildings are made of adobe–earth brick, with a reinforced concrete structure, built on a concrete fixed stone foundation. The design was made in the spirit of the synergetic use of natural material, as well as technology to obtain an ecological natural disaster-proof environment, allowing for an agreeable constant temperature all year around. The Villa has a double roof house with a concrete plain roof and a sloped teck wood and palm leaves roof.
Since 1990 the Villa has endured two hurricanes that damaged neighbors properties, but did not damage the Villa or the other Tzampoc buildings.
