From the very first, 'location' has been what we love most about our rustic home here in San Miguel. It was once a typical single storey adobe structure that has, over the years, been added to by 3 generations of the same family. Located on the most photographed street in San Miguel, our home has its kitchen, dining area, small bathroom and one bedroom on the first floor. A sweet courtyard, with herbs, flowers and a lime tree separates the ground floor from the upstairs living quarters. Upstairs is the larger bathroom, a two-room bedroom office, another office/sleeping space, and the master bedroom.
There is often a lively scene outside on weekend evenings, and families will find plenty to do in the park steps from our front door. We often take our meals up to the roof to watch the sunsets and the birds.
We have two cats who will warmly welcome you and will need feeding. If you make day trips our house cleaner will come in and feed them.
San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, is a 500-year old colonial city that enjoys United Nations World Heritage designation: this year Conde Nast "Traveler" magazine called it the number-one city to visit in THE world. Located in the Mexican Highlands at an altitude of 6300 feet, it's got great weather: warm, dry sunny days and cool nights.
To many visitors the town feels magical; the Mexican people are gracious and welcoming, and there are so many English-speakers that it is not necessary to know Spanish to get by. The food is excellent, and there's plenty to do---aside from plays, movies, lectures, art galleries (and classes) galore, there's horseback riding, bird watching and several hot springs, as well as a nearby, recently unearthed pyramid.
San Miguel has inspired artists, writers and adventurers for many decades.
Our simple home is in the historical center on San Miguel's premiere (and flat) street between the Jardin and Parque Juarez putting you in easy walking access of almost all the major destinations.
