From the moment you arrive on this 10 acres in San Luis, Colorado you will feel relaxed and renewed from the clean, crisp air here. Imagine taking in the western views of the 2,000 acre Sanchez Reservoir and surrounding mountains. Put your feet on the dirt and feel the earth in the beautiful, sunny, and fertile alpine San Luis Valley.
Enjoy unparalleled privacy, hunting and recreation while keeping the conveniences of civilization at just a stone’s throw away. Located just 10 miles from San Luis, Colorado, oldest continuously inhabited town in Colorado (dating back to 1540), and the county seat of Costilla County, this parcel includes 10 acres of beautiful raw land (a rare size in the area). Costilla County has two incorporated towns and several smaller communities. The towns of San Luis and Blanca are incorporated while Fort Garland is one of the county’s larger towns though not incorporated. Chama, San Pedro, Los Fuertes, Garcia, Jaroso, San Francisco, San Acacio, and Mesita, are smaller communities, all of which were established shortly after the town of San Luis in 1851.
The diverse geologic and geographic features of Costilla County offer beautiful landscapes, rugged mountains, majestic forest and endless blue sky. You can find a range of activities and abundant wildlife. The hunting is good—the biggest herd of Elk in America resides here, and the fishing is great in Lake Sanchez Reservoir (3.5 miles away). The county boasts some of the best big game hunting in the stae of Colorado! Costilla County is located only an hour away from many famous natural wonders of Colorado: Great Sand Dunes National Park (the highest inland dunes in North America), Zapata Falls that offers panoramic views along the trails. The proximity to Eagle Nest State Park (90 min) and skiing in Red River (65min) makes this lot an attractive value.

There are some fences to navigate around also.
