Property description

Conceived as a private home with extensive room for family and numerous guests, Casa Cariño has views that sweep across the historic Mexican town of San Miguel de Allende. Bell towers and Gothic spires pierce the skyline with background hues shifting from blues to russet to golden as the setting sun disappears behind the mountains.

Casa Cariño is timeless in its architecture and gardens, yet it was just completed in 2002. Combined with the many balconies, hand carved doors, local tile, and nine carved stone fireplaces, the home features modern appliances, state of the art phone and electrical, and a pool and custom fountain/hot tub spa. Having seven bedrooms with full baths, Casa Cariño invites you as a family getaway or a corporate executive conference retreat. Perhaps most romantic of all, Casa Cariño is a wonderful destination wedding location; in fact, the bride and groom might send the rest of the wedding party home and have their honeymoon at Casa Cariño.

Car: Not Necessary

We enjoy souvenir, gift and antique shopping, walking around town, enjoying meals at the house (fabulous in-house cook, Alicia) and eating out at a variety of restaurants, swimming in the pool at the house, golfing at Las Ventanas & Malaquin, taking friends to rooftop bars - Luna at the Rosewood Hotel and Azotea are our favorites, going to have pizza for lunch at MAMA MIA and going there at night for live music. We are walking distance from town and walking is the best way to stumble upon the hidden gems in San Miguel. If you are looking for more to do definitely pick up a copy of the weekly Atencion paper which will list various activities.
