Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 6 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

A vacation at Villa Blanca is truly like having a boutique hotel all to yourself in the middle of San Miguel’s historic center. This this luxurious 4 bed room hillside villa was built in 1750 and completely re-built and renovated in 2007 by one of San Miguel's leading modern architects yet still retains its original colonial charm. 2015 saw the entire property upgraded with furniture, new bar cut into the hillside terrace, and a new outdoor gourmet kitchen.

Upon entering the Villa you will be transported from the colorful streets of San Miguel to the sun-drenched open spaces of the Mediterranean. Villa Blanca is a four bedroom, six bathroom modern home in the town's most prime location, three blocks up from the Jardin. There is no other rental property in the historic center that offers this level of style and sensual sophistication combined with a perfectly central location and incomparable views of the city and countryside.

The villa dates form around 1750 but in 2007 the flow was changed to bring the old chapel into the enclosed space of the main house and made the 3rd bedroom. A new two story building was built up another level further to rear of the property providing on the 2nd story a master suite and on the lower level is the media room with a 65" Ultra High DefinitionTV and a bath. The result is a layout out like a boutique hotel with four separate suites, all with their own modern baths and outdoor patios. In late 2015 Villa Blanca was extensively updated with the addition of a large balcony deck off the upper master suite, new outdoor kitchen, conversion of the 5th bedroom to media room. Every room is as comfortable as it is architecturally beautiful, with cozy fireplaces and unique touches such as a wood-burning pizza/bread oven and an underground winer bar in the hillside on Terrace level 2. On terrace level 3 is the new top of the line outdoor kitchen & BBQ with glass roof.

2 MASTER SUITES: There are two stunning and equally romantic master suites with King beds, gas fireplaces and walk-in closet. The lower master bathroom has two sinks on onyx counters and a beautiful glass-doored rain shower with adjoining full bath that opens onto a terrace with a reading nook, hammock, sun chaises. The upper master suite doors open onto a large wood decked steel balcony looking directly at the main cathedral, the Peroquia, 3 blocks downhill to the west and panoramic views stretching out to the countryside, . This is the best view in San Miguel. This decked balcony has a spiral stair to the 5th level patio on the roof with the same fabulous view. You can relax in bed and watch the sun rise or set over the picturesque steeples and hills of San Miguel or enjoy this same vista from above on the new covered roof patio.

2 GUEST ROOMS: In addition to the two master suites, there are two, smaller guest suites with queen beds, brand new modern bathrooms and private patios. One of the guest suites is on the center level in the old Chapel and the other is upstairs.

WATER PURIFICATION: There are purified and water softening systems serving all taps. Purification is not necessary in San Miguel as the whole city system is excellent but we provide the best we can obtain as we live here part of the year.

KITCHENS: The Main modern kitchen has a marble toped center island with high-backed stools for casual dining. The kitchen also has a dishwasher, professional 6-burner range and a wood-burning pizza oven modern side by side refrigerator and freezer with chilled water and ice in the door.

The Outdoor Kitchen has a top of the line 44 inch gas BBQ and gas range with 2 burners. It is covered with a glass ceiling. It has an under counter refrigerator, sink and is stocked with both BBQ tools, kitchen and serving utensils as well as place setting cutlery napkins, etc.

DINING ROOM: Enjoy your meals in the formal dining room while listening to the soothing stone fountain in the courtyard or relax with a book in the stunning, light-filled living room in front of the fireplace.

WINE CELLAR BAR & OUTDOOR DINING AND ENTERTAINING ARES ON 5 TERRACES: The Villa has five levels of outdoor patios including a central terrace which has both fire and water elements, cave wine cellar bar with refrigerator and ice machine and stunning views, providing the perfect backdrop for relaxing or dining al fresco. By day, you can enjoy a cold beer with your comida from the gourmet outdoor kitchen with BBQ grill and tanning on the sun chaises. In the evening, have drinks form the Cave Bar and watch the sunset then retire to the cozy couches in front of the outdoor fireplace and light up the stone fountain to create the perfect ambiance for a cocktail gathering.

Villa Blanca is perfect if you have guests who want to enjoy some privacy by having their own casita.

I've told my friends who are looking to rent next year in SMA at Christmas about Villa Blanca. I'll let others know as well. It was truly a special house, so beautiful and stylish yet also cozy and comfortable, and just a delightful experience.

OUTSTANDING!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Blanca for 8 wonderful days this June. The home, its décor, patios, bedrooms, privacy and proximity to all things wonderful in San Miguel was first rate. Your trip actually begins long before you arrive in San Miguel as the owners take such care in helping make your trip the best with suggestions on where to eat, day trips, shopping suggestions, walking tours and cooking classes.

I would stay here again in a heart beat. Many happy memories will be made in this exquisite home with its many lovely patios and decks.

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a Christmas holiday at Villa Blanca with our family of seven adults. The house is beautiful, with lovely bedroom suites that provided space and privacy. The kitchen was very well equipped and multiple outdoor areas provided us with many entertainment opportunities. Excellent staff and the owners were very helpful in planning our stay. I highly recommend Villa Blanca for a vacation in San Miguel de Allende.

Stylish Villa Blanca

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous home in a fabulous location–I'm so happy we stayed here! The interiors are stylish and well-furnished (our party was made up of architects and graphic designers, and all fell in love with Villa Blanca). The outdoor spaces unfold like a beautiful story as one travels further into the home. The owner was very, very friendly and helpful as we made our arrangements, and the staff was very attentive during our stay. There were 4-5 of us staying in the whole house and we were completely comfortable. Whenever I return to San Miguel, I will always inquire about staying at Villa Blanca.

Beautiful Villa Blanca

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a lovely three weeks in San Miguel. Staying at the Villa Blanca contributed enormously to our pleasure. It is absolutely beautiful, comfortable and

inviting. We spent hours relaxing and reading and enjoying the pleasure of being in the beautiful house or on the lush terraces. We loved all the thoughtful touches -- the beautiful stone walls, the exterior moldings, the thoughtful and well chosen art. It was a visual feast but not a feast that leads to indigestion -- just to pleasure and more discovery of other interesting places to rest our eyes.

Staying at the Villa Blanca greatly enhanced our enjoyment of our visit to San Miguel.

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the home a few weeks ago for a large 400+ person wedding we were attending in San Miguel.

Many friends rented houses in the area, and of course we visited quite a few.

BUT, the nicest by far was our rental.

This home is amazing. The attention to detail that went into the interior decoration is quite mind boggling. The location, the layout, the style, the furniture, the art, the finishings, the staff, the appliances.. they are all perfect.

I have lived in Mexico since 1995 and rented a ton of places throughout the country. Generally you get run down house with white tiles big blocky colorful "touristy mexican" wooden furniture chosen for renting the house.

This is not a rental house.

This is an amazing HOME that happens to be for rent.

If you are considering a San Miguel rental, this should be top of your list.

Heaven in the heart of San Miguel

  • 5 of 5

Our family planned a very last minute trip to San Miguel and since I only had a few hours to find something, my expectations weren't very high. It must've been my lucky day because Abby was the only owner to call me back immediately. She worked out the details the same evening. The next day her lovely house manager, Yoko, met us at the local grocery store to take us to the house.

If you love interior design, this home is a jewel! Oozes style and sumptuous comfort! I had a smile from ear to ear with so many wonderful details to take in! Great location, too, quiet neighborhood and just a short walk to the plaza. I've stayed in different rentals in San Miguel over the years- all of which are great but happened to be booked this trip. The stars were aligned this time - I just found my new favorite! Thank you Abby for sharing your special property!!
