Since the early twentieth century, the house was in the hands of the Covarrubias family, a native of Cholula. Although never lived like home, Covarrubias had in it the helmet of the garden that reached around the block and they had pets. In recent years, the house was rented in small batches for various activities, including a dry goods store, a funeral and a bar.
The family Cárdenas González de Cossio acquired this property as a ground in late 1995, after 7 years of being on sale. The restoration work was entrusted to the architect and engineer Norma Laguna Jose Luis Castillo, who worked a variety of works, such as the Library Palafoxiana the city of Puebla, the Juarez Hospital in Mexico City and the dome of Santa Prisca in Taxco, among many others. The restoration took more than two years and retained the original structure of the house and the construction system of the time.
The painting of its interior is made from earth and minerals, allowing the adobe walls to "breathe." The main gate and the brick floor, more than 300 years old, were rescued and restored. Thus this house today returns to its original splendor.
In 2003, the house becomes La Quinta Luna, a great small luxury hotel, distinguished by its excellent personalized service and hospitality.
