Property description

Welcome to Casa Florida, a historic 250 year-old rescued treasure, remodeled in 2007/2008 into an exquisite home. This charming, airy, home, right in the center of the World Heritage site of San Miguel de Allende, will delight you with it's open central courtyard design, full of original artworks from local artists and sculpture.

Situated a short, flat, 2 minute walk, from the main square (Jardin), & the grand Parroquia Church. Just 2 doors away you will find the Angela Peralta Opera House & the Bellas Artes, a showcase for art exhibits and concerts. The Biblioteca, one of the largest English-language libraries in Latin America, with its own theater is just 1.5 block away.

An easy ten-minute walk to the Instituto Allende, which offers classes in Spanish, painting, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics, batik, weaving, art history and more. It is an ideal location for easy, flat, walking to dozens of restaurants, theater, concerts, festivals or other cultural events. So close to the entire central area of town, Casa Florida is truly at the heart of it all, whilst still being very safe and secure.

Casa Florida is exquisitely furnished, with bespoke linens & custom designed pieces throughout. Supremely comfortable beds, and lovely designer bathrooms to linger in. The living areas are beautifully appointed and are a lovely retreat at the end of a busy day. Continental breakfast is offered daily and is included in the price of your stay.

Rental includes unlimited free phone calls to US, Canada. Also included is high-speed wireless internet, utilities, local phone, cable TV with English-language stations, Apple TV, washer/dryer, hairdryers in each bathroom and daily maid service. Private driver service and caterer available on request for a fee.

Your beautiful rooftop, private terrace has stunning views of the cupolas and spires of San Miguel. Furnished with table, umbrella, chairs, and lounges, & with a refrigerator & sink, you can breakfast on the roof, or sip cocktails while often viewing a dazzling display of fireworks.

With good weather all year long, San Miguel is one of the 10 most visited cities in the world. Colonial architecture has been greatly protected as a national treasure in this walking city! Excellent restaurants abound, and with copious art galleries, English theater, music venues, dance, hiking, biking, active Audubon Society, golf, tennis, and glorious bougainvillea, it is sometimes said we are the 'Santa Fe of Mexico with San Diego weather'!

Come, enjoy, and where better to do it all, than from your San Miguel home, the lovely Casa Florida!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2004

About: I visited San Miguel de Allende in 2004 and fell in love. I bought the ruin of Casa Florida & renovated it from 2006 until the end of 2008 into what it is today. I am a native Floridian from Tampa, FL where I have lived for 58 years and raised two daughters. I taught for 38 years & also had my own company, renovating historic buildings. I find living in San Miguel most of the year to be the retirement I had always hoped for. I never dared to dream the dreams that are as good as the life we are blessed enough to have here in San Miguel!
