About the Property

One bedroom private casita 10 minutes from downtown San Miguel de Allende

The Casita de los Arcos is spacious and comfortable with a large combined living room, dining area and kitchen. A separate bedroom area can be completely closed off for private space. Additional sleeping space in the main room can be added.

The Casita de los Arcos is topped by a 14 foot boveda (domed brick) ceiling. On one side of the living area is a cozy gas fireplace, and on the other is a full kitchen with a dining area. The kitchen and full bath are finished with traditional Mexican tile. Guests can use the entire 3,000 sq. foot veranda and a large front yard, which is part of the larger Casa de los Arcos mansion. Our home offers a large amount of outdoor space not available in the center of town. It is located in the Atascadero neighborhood, one of the most desirable "colonias" in San Miguel. On a hillside overlooking Centro, it has the advantage of being in a quiet, residential neighborhood but still within walking distance from the "Centro". You can walk downhill through charming neighborhoods on cobblestone streets into the heart of San Miguel with its unique mix of Spanish colonial architecture and Mexican charm, its many shops, restaurants and churches. One direction takes you to the main market, and another takes you to the “Jardin” or main square. At the end of the day, you can return to a quiet and comfortable home.

Near us is San Miguel's unique botanical garden, the Charco del Ingenio, which protects many indigenous species including 156 species of migratory and resident birds, and 110 species of butterflies.
Just past the Charco you'll find San Miguel's shopping mall and Cinemex theaters, as well as the famous “El Tianguis” - the huge Tuesday Market which is only a 10 minute walk away.
From the Casita you can walk 10 minutes downhill to reach town, or call a taxi. Taxis in San Miguel are plentiful and inexpensive (30 to 40 pesos per ride, or US$2.00 to US$2.75). It's always easy to catch a taxi in town for access to all of San Miguel, or for a ride home. Taxi drivers are friendly, knowledgeable and many speak English.

We also have a large rooftop with wonderful views of downtown and the surrounding countryside.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: George and I have lived in Los Angeles for 20+ years. We now live in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. We have two children, ages 13 and 23, and we work in international education and other creative fields. We enjoy sharing our homes with visitors to these three great cities: Los Angeles, San Miguel, and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Our home in Los Angeles is an architecturally significant California modern home with original appointments and design. Our home in San Miguel is a spacious, traditional Mexican-style casa, with a large veranda and yard, and an adjacent casita. Our traditional Santa Fe-style adobe casita is located on 13 acres of high desert, 30 minutes southeast of Santa Fe. Like many of our guests, we love to explore the world, and hosting people from all over the world enriches our own experience. We always provide attention that is both professional and personal.

Why the Owner Chose Arcos de San Miguel (San Miguel de Allende, Gto., Mexico):
Casa and Casita de Los Arcos offers you an opportunity to enjoy San Miguel's 'Centro' just a few minutes walk away, but it also gives you a chance to come home after an active day out and relax in a tranquil and beautiful, spacious home away from the noise of the city - relax in a jacuzzi tub or a sauna to rejuvenate for the next day.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Casa de Los Arcos is between the Centro and the new shopping mall, but it remains in a classic San Miguel setting on cobble-stone streets and hidden 'callejones'' or walking streets.
