Casa linda was also recommended highly
by The Guardian newspaper in 2010 and 2011 (click for full article)

"Oaxaca is a magical place, but staying at Casa Linda is beyond magical – it’s paradise! Her spacious house, filled with a rich collection of folk art is a delight to the eyes, and her garden outside is an oasis of beauty. And if that weren’t enough, you can choose to have Linda take you on a tour that gives you a glimpse of the heart of Oaxaca, opening the doors into homes of local artists. My family’s not much for guided tours, but this was an experience we won’t forget and you don’t want to miss."

"Our party of 6 gallery owners and collectors stayed with Linda Hanna at Casa Linda for 10 days in March 2006. We hired her to guide us to alebrije artists, weavers, potters, painters, furniture artists, and to acquaint us with the area. She was superb. In one single day she drove our large party to 14 artists, other days we visited as many as 10. We found her extremely generous with her time and spirit and very flexible when our needs changed."

"Whether you are sightseeing or on a quest for Oaxacan folk art, Linda knows exactly where to take you. Her "Above and Beyond" folk art tours, advice on how to ship my purchases, and terrific shopping and fine dinging recommendations have made her a must on all my return visits to Oaxaca."
- Marianne Carlson, www.mexicoetc.com
"I highly recommend Linda Hanna as your tour guide for Oaxaca. Normally, I I enjoy seeking out and finding on my own, however, on my last trip to Oaxaca, I was limited on time to purchase items for my gallery. A friend recommended Linda so I e-mailed her a long list of the artists I wanted to see. She replied there would be no problem in seeing any or all of them. She patiently took me to as many artists as I could handle in a day and I was delighted to see she already knew most of the artists personally. Linda also added several artists I was unaware of." - Anon.
"A delicious breakfast in a lovely flower and bird-filled garden, a stroll up the lane to get fresh atole, a sweet night's sleep in an art-filled room, stimulating conversation and lots of laughter - these are my memories of staying at Casa Linda. And you couldn't ask for a better guide to the sights and artisan villages of the Oaxaca area. Linda knows the culture, knows the artists as friends, and knows just where to go to find what you are looking for. She is an amazing resource, and a fabulous host."
