Leading the list of “must see” places in Mexico, San Miguel de Allende sits at 6300 feet above sea level providing warm sunny days and cool nights nearly all year round. UNESCO World Heritage Site San Miguel is a walking town, well known for its galleries, shops, music, exhibits and festivals. Visitors can study language, art or cooking and, in their spare time hike, play golf, bike, fish, watch wildlife and birds, shop, attend live theater, museums and concerts, visit hot springs, ruins and nearby villages or just relax.
Year Purchased: 2012
About: After visiting our cousins in San Miguel for six years, my husband and I finally decided to get a place of our own to share with friends and relax far away from our hectic lives. I'm an artist and professor, and my husband is in financial services IT, now living and working in Chicago, so we love to get away and relax, read, write, and spend hours in conversation with the many friends we've made in the friendly San Miguel community.
Why Zona Centro, San Miguel de Allende, Gto., Mexico:
Aside from the fact that San Miguel de Allende is simply my favorite city in the world, we chose our property because of its welcoming, bright, warm, colorful charm. After visiting homes in other neighborhoods, I realized that Casa Cantera is perfectly located to partake in all that San Miguel has to offer. Less than 5 minutes flat walk puts you in the artisan's market and large produce market. 5 more minutes has you in the Jardin, the center of the historic district, where you can sit on a bench reading the daily paper or watching the comings and goings of San Miguel's many residents and visitors. Dozens of excellent restaurants are within comfortable walking distance and if you get tired, $3 buys you a taxi ride anywhere in the center. Our neighborhood is friendly and family oriented and our terrace is breezy and comfortable day and night, all year round.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Casa Cantera is decorated with a wide variety of artworks from Mexican, Canadian and American contemporary artists.
