El Cristal


………..yes, just like the Champagne!

Creating today’s crisp look with the textured timbers of our cultural heritage is our best challenge.  The result of clarity, sunlight, and ease of living is the essence of El Cristal.  The rich Santa Fe palette shines well against finely finished traditional plaster walls while the designer kitchen may be scaled down with nary a compromising detail.  Slumber well within the soft quiet of adobe walls while wrapped in luscious Italian linens and open doors to the stars of a midsummer’s night dream.  The question is, to venture out to the sumptuous worldly tastes of Santa Fe cuisine or to retreat to El Cristal.  A tough choice when considering the greater comforts of life. Please inquire about our pet policy.
