Guanajuato City apartment description

The Florecer Project is a walled compound with five private apartments within a beautiful garden. We have recently added two roof terraces for dining or to enjoy a spectacular sunset or sunrise. We are a ten minute walk downhill to the center of Guanajuato. Three of our five apartments are accessible with no stairs. All have well equipped kitchens and baths, outdoor sitting areas, filtered water, gas fireplace or heater, wireless internet, ipod dock, microwave, and safes for valuables.

We are located directly above the University of Guanajuato. A short walk brings you to El Centro, the market, restaurants and museums; a bus returns up the hill every 15 minutes. Taxis are readily available and inexpensive, and street parking is available.

Please plan to arrive between 2pm and 9pm. If you would like to arrive before 2pm or after 9pm, please let us know in advance. We will accommodate your schedule if at all possible. Group rates are available if you wish to rent more than one casita.

We ask that you conserve both water and electricity as both are precious commodities in Guanajuato.

                          This jewel of a city has everything a traveler loves...getting lost and then finding a quaint little bar in a tiny neighborhood and making a life long friend, visiting the best of what museums have to offer, eating at a hole in the wall cafe with all the charm in the world, or seeing a performance of the local symphony, perfectly breathtaking. Wander the tiny walkways of Guanajuato for an afternoon never forgotten and for a taste of life in Mexico. You will want to move here as soon as possible!

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          About the owner: An artist since childhood, I've always been interested in the creative and collaborative spirit. For twenty five years I designed and installed large glass installations for municipalities and corporations in the U.S. and abroad. In doing that work, I rarely had time for my own art or for myself. In leaving the rain soaked northwest and moving to Guanajuato, I have been able to regain the joy of working in my studio and the anticipation of working and living with other artists nearby. I created Florecer to be a center where creative people of all types can come together in an interdisciplinary soup, to share their skills and ideas by working together. We recently completed a printmaking studio and an enameling studio will soon be underway; eventually there will be four studios in all with more interdisciplinary projects to come. Join us. Share our vision, soak up a little culture, fun, and friendship and stay in the best place in Guanajuato.

                          Why the Owner Chose Guanajuato City:
                          The location of Florecer (meaning to bloom) is easily accessible from downtown and from mostly anywhere in Guanajuato. When you are here it feels as though you are a long way from a city, but once you go through the gate and head down towards the Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, you are almost in the historic center of town.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          Guanajuato has a full time symphony and musical events EVERY NIGHT. If you are a music lover, this is the place to be. Easily in a week one could hear chamber music, a symphony performance, jazz, one or two recitals, and dance salsa until dawn....
