Step behind understated walls and experience a different place in time…
Conveniently located in the heart of San Miguel de Allende, Casa de la Espiga is just a three-minute walk from the town's main plaza with Jardín Allende and La Parroquia.
The main house was built in 1717 and several decades ago it housed a bakery, thus the name ‘la Espiga’ meaning ‘the flower of the grain’.
Once inside, a colonnaded courtyard with original stone walls, graceful arches, and a lush garden with its trickling fountain gently leads toward the interior rooms, designed to afford the ultimate indoor/outdoor living reminiscent of this home's colonial past.
The elegant yet comfortable living room with a hand-carved fireplace opens to a formal dining room crowned by a splendid cupola, a step from the large, colorful and fully-equipped kitchen. Accessible from the gardens as well, two comfortably spacious bedrooms are on the first floor, one with a king bed and one with a queen. On the rooftop an independent bedroom has a king bed with a cemento pulido bath.
Adjacent to the main house, Casa de las Estrellas is a private guest house that can be connected but has its own entrance. On the first floor lie, outdoors, a sitting room, a half bathroom and a courtyard, and indoors, an open kitchen and living room. Going up a mezzanine displays two twin beds, and a rooftop bedroom has a queen bed with a mosaic-tiled bath.
The expansive sun-drenched roof terraces offer stunning views of the town's skyline and mountain sunsets.
All bedrooms have private en-suite baths, fine linens, and down/feather comforters and pillows.
Free WiFi, complimentary international and domestic calls, cable television, surround sound, and a library of books, videos, and CD's are provided for your enjoyment.
Casa de la Espiga has a wonderful full-time staff who utterly exude the warmth of Mexico. Tactfully unobtrusive, Josefina is there to maintain the household and look after your every need. Her memorable Mexican recipes rival those of any restaurant in San Miguel, and she is pleased to cook upon request. Tomas maintains the gardens and outdoor spaces and will cheerfully help out wherever he is needed. They will make sure that you feel pampered throughout your entire stay.
Casa de la Espiga is not just a home, it is an experience!
