Manager info

Year Purchased: 2007

About: Retired as Executive Director of three non-profits and management analyst since 2006; moved to San Miguel, bought the condo and live part time between here and California. My health and vigor improved greatly since moving to San Miguel.

Why Centro Historico, San Miguel de Allende, Gto., Mexico:
The complex itself is safe and relatively quiet since we're near the center of town, yet somewhat back and up from it. The neighbors are amiable and considerate. The workers are all trusted and helpful. As a single woman, I feel completely safe here.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Close to the jardin, (centro) and on one of the most beautiful streets in the city; near the botanical gardens and Balcones, the (balconies) or upper hills of San Miguel. All windows are double paned, new refurbishing updates have been added in the last year. Close to great restaurants, music, chamber music, bakeries, shopping, coffee shops, yoga, pilates, hiking trails, quad bikes, films, theaters, etc. There's a lot to do in SMA, whatever suits your taste.
