Overview

About the property

Villa, urban with 4 bdrms, sleeps 7, 4 baths, terrace, patios, many amenities

Colonial-style home in the four hundred year old town of San Miguel de Allende. It is located within the Centro Historico, just seven blocks from the center of town. Because the house is built on the side of a hill, it is spread over three levels.

All areas of the house open onto patios or terraces.

The property's entrance from the street is on the middle level which includes a small entry patio, stone fountain and a large tile mural of the towns most significant and memorable building, the Parroquia church. Also, a small stairway leads to a bedroom from this patio.

The entrance to the main part of the house is on the upper level, which opens to an entry hall with tiled ceiling and a half-bath. Beyond is a large living room and outdoor terrace. From the living room, a short hallway leads to the formal dining room. These rooms have tile wainscots and also stone or stucco fireplaces. Behind the dining room is the kitchen, and laundry.

The kitchen is fully equipped with double built-in gas ovens, a gas cooktop, dishwasher a large copper sink and a small copper prep sink. Also there are plenty of cookbooks both English and bilingual, dishes, glassware and linens to set an attractive table.

On the lower level are three more bedrooms, two with king size beds and one with a queen bed.

Two of the bedrooms are located on either side of a patio, and one looks out over the garden.

All bedrooms have en suite baths, fireplaces, and ceiling fans. Air conditioning is not needed in San Miguel. The altitude of approximately 6,500 feet keeps this sunny town cool and comfortable. Our winters are usually mild and short (December through mid February). The winters can be cold but rarely drops below the freezing mark.

Also on the lower level is an informal living room with large screen cable TV and a game table.

This rooms opens onto a large garden patio that includes tree shaded dining areas and a pergola with two large banquettes for enjoying morning coffee or evening cocktails.

Also there is a rooftop terrace with spectacular views of the city and the mountains beyond.

There is a staff of three at the house Monday through Friday, 8:30 - 3:30 and Saturday, 8:30 -12:00. The cook will prepare breakfast and lunch if requested leaving your days and evenings free to discover San Miguel's many good restaurants. There is also a house boy/gardener who speaks a little English and can help you with almost anything. We have a property manager that is fluent in English and can help you with anything you might need.

Amazing House, perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this house could not have been better. The house itself is beautiful. The rooftop terrace was one of our favorite places to watch the hot air balloons in the morning, do yoga, or enjoy the sunrise with a cup of coffee or sunset with a glass of wine. The garden area is very relaxing as well. One individual in our group sat in the garden area to do some work in the afternoons. It was a quiet and relaxing location for that purpose. The bedrooms were very comfortable and separated from each other which adds to the privacy you feel throughout this house. The upper level is the main living area with a gorgeous balcony, classy living room and beautiful dining area. The staff that work at the home are very sweet. It is helpful to know and understand some Spanish, but the gardener does speak some English and the neighbor/house manager next door speaks perfect English so they are able to assist if there are any difficulties communicating. The food we ate at the house each day was delicious and incredibly fresh. The gardener does the grocery shopping for you and he could not be nicer. The homeowner will arrange a menu for you which was very nice. My favorite lunch was the fresh cream of asparagus soup and stuffed pepper. Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables in every meal, but also very hearty meals for the men to enjoy. The location of the house is also perfect for walking down to the Jardin area for shopping, spa treatments, eating, tours, etc. And, the taxis for the trip back up if you are too tired or if your legs are sore from walking up the hills of the town too many times are cheap (roughly $2) and there are plenty of taxis around at all hours. We enjoyed our stay here so much that I have already recommended it to many people. The homeowners are great to work with while planning your trip as well. By the end of the planning, I honestly felt as though I'd made new friends! I do hope our paths cross again in the future!
