Located on a wooded property 20 minutes from San Miguel de Allende, Casita Amarilla (Little Yellow House) was designed by noted artist Steve Kornher (see (website hidden)). The property is amazingly private (for Mexico) and is located in the rancho (small village) of Montecillo de Nieto. The curvacious habitat consists of a sala comprised of sleeping alcove, sitting areas and small dining space. On the western end of the house is the petite kitchen and bath/shower and composting toilet. Though miniscule, this efficient kitchen (suitable for the owner, who is Kitchen Phobic) has produced many a gourmet meal under the guidance of visiting chefs! The eastern end of the house consists of a studio/office and storage area (tools.) My home can only accomodate two people.
Neighbors are friendly but out of sight. Fruits and vegetables can be purchased a few blocks away at Rafael and Gloria's tienda (family store.) You can also step out for tasty tacos there on Friday and Saturday nights. A verdura (fruit and vegetable) truck comes through town twice a week. Major shopping is just 20 minutes away, at the closest supermarket.
This is the perfect retreat for finishing that book or embarking on a new project in the studio. When you tire of your peaceful solitude, colonial San Miguel, a few miles to the southeast, offers a cornucopia of art galleries, musical and theater events, gourmet dining (or a delicious meal in a market puesto), a wonderful library and classes in anything you can imagine! (Yoga, belly dancing, icon making, cooking, drawing, etc.) Or just sit on the jardin (main plaza) and people-watch.
A local bus provides transportation 6 or 7 times a day, but having your own car is much to be preferred.
