¿Que es?

Casa Piña SMA is one of San Miguel de Allende’s finest colonial homes furnished with period antiques and original artwork. This three-bedroom and four-bathroom downtown villa sleeps up to six guests and is attended to by a courteous, diligent and trustworthy staff that provide personalized service for guests and the luxury of total leisure.

Experienceing the best of both worlds

Casa Piña SMA’s front door is just half a block from the center of town, offers unparalleled access to the idilic life of el Jardin and convenient strolls to all points beyond in the centro historico. Yet behind the thick adobe walls of its original facade guests will experience a rare form of peace, privacy and privilege.

Dining al fresco and sunsets from the mirador

Casa Piña SMA’s focal point is the central patio with a large stone fountain in the middle. The south-facing “outdoor” living room and dining room is a year-round favourite with all guests. It fills with warm winter sunlight and remains cool and shady in the summer as the sun travels further north. It is a lovely spot to spend the entire day, to entertain or host a comida with guests. Another table in the cactus garden at the rear of the house provides an al-fresco dining option.

At sunset, the rooftop mirador is the best spot in the house to start the evening in style or to reflect on the day’s events as the sky lights up in a colourful display and sun disappears behind the distant mountains.

Master bedroom suite and guest bedrooms

At Casa Piña SMA, the three widely-separated bedrooms over three stories provide privacy, tranquility and rest.

The second-floor master bedroom suite has a huge boveda, or domed, ceiling and provides guests with total comfort and space. It includes a king-sized bed, an adjacent, private, outdoor sun deck, two walk-in closets, and two en-suite bathrooms. Banks of south facing french doors on either side of a fireplace keep the room toasty with direct natural light in the winter.

The second bedroom, in a separate building, is half a flight up from the patio and has it’s own veranda. It has soaring ceilings supported by original beams, twin beds, fireplace, bathroom with shower, and French doors that open on to the cactus garden.

The third bedroom sits atop the the second bedroom but is a full story up from the master bedroom suite. It has a has a Queensize bed, bathroom with shower, and a comfortable terrace overlooking the central patio. Guests seeking higher ground will find it along with stunning views up the spiral staircase to the rooftop mirador, or lookout.

My family and I have stayed in Casa Pina twice in the last few years; the house and the location are remarkable. We have stayed in other homes in San Miguel but the house on Aldama has been the best, it makes the SMA experience even more memorable.

A perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

Three of us had a wonderful experience staying at Casa Pina! The location is incredible, close to all great restaurants, shops, centro, etc. The home could not be more charming with many terraces, views and private spots. The one thing I wish I had been more prepared for was the unusually cold weather. I wish I had brought my slippers! The heaters/fireplaces were a nice touch and well used. The staff was delightful and very friendly, the breakfasts were delicious. We had a wonderful visit to San Miquel and would highly recommend Casa Pina to anyone who asks our opinion! Thank you to all who made our trip so special!

Lupe and Teresa were wonderful and attended to our needs beautifully with their attention to detail and great meals! The home is well situated and very comfortable. Lenora and Aleida, not to mention her son Austin, went out of their way to make sure we were having a wonderful time!
