About our home

Located in the Centro District in San Miguel de allende, Guanajuato, Central Mexico.
Located 265 km (165 miles) northeast of Mexico City. San Miguel is located within Mexico's hilly central highlands.
In 2008 UNESCO recognized San Miguel de Allende as a World Heritage of site.
San Miguel de Allende is a city that manages to be both quaint and cosmopolitan at the same time. Once an important stop on the silver route between Zacatecas and Mexico City, its historic center is filled with well-preserved buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries. With its narrow cobblestone streets, leafy courtyards, fine architectural details and sumptuous interiors, San Miguel de Allende is arguably the prettiest town in Mexico.


Accommodations: 2 bedroom home 2.5 baths (sleeps 4)

CASA ALICIA: An exquisite “Mexican Modern” home in an ideal 'Centro' location just off of the southwest corner of Juarez Park. It’s a quick flat walk to the Instituto and Jardin.

A beautiful fountain with surrounding plantings gives one the feeling of a primeval garden. While sitting in the outdoor sala, which opens to a grand living room, you will relax to the sights and sounds of the garden beyond. There are two fireplaces in this fabulous space.
