                          Colonial town in the center of Mexico. Conde Naste travel magazine awarded San Miguel best city in the world in 2013. Cobblestone streets, colonial architecture, Mayan Pyramids, Hot Springs, Unesco World Heritage site

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: After traveling the world and living in many countries - Canada, England, France, Italy, India and Brazil, I discovered San Miguel de Allende in Mexico in 2006 and decided to unpack my suitcases and settle down. The Spanish colonial architecture delights my eyes as I walk the cobblestone streets. The sun shines daily and the climate suits me to a T. There is an incredible expat community in this town, many are travelers like myself, artists and writers. I enjoy the banquet of cultural activities the town has to offer, live theater, music festivals and art openings. And San Miguel has one of the largest English libraries in Latin America. As an avid reader this is a big bonus for me. It took two years to convert my old adobe house with large garden into a guest house with three units. Renovating and decorating is my passion. The main house, which is my home, is an old adobe hacienda style house. The villa is newly constructed using part of an old construction in the garden and the casita has been converted from a wing of the original house.

                          Why the Owner Chose Centro Historico:
                          The property is right in the heart of the historical center I love the challenge of rescuing an old neglected place and making it beautiful. It was located in the part of town where I wanted to make my own home and had potential for a good rental site. Location, Location, Location. Everything is just a few minutes walk away. Yet the large garden in the historical center provides a quiet respite from the busy town.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Right in the historical heart of San Miguel, I can be in the Jardin in a few minutes. There is no need to have a car since everything is close by. Walking the quiet cobblestone streets, lined with flowers on the way to my favorite cafe reminds me always to be grateful that I chose San Miguel as home. Magic happens here on a daily basis, and at Casa Mandu you are right in the center of it all, but our garden oasis is the perfect place to relax with a book or just sit and watch the butterflies flit from flower to flower.
