About this listing

Casa Christina is a spacious home with a lovely backyard garden, front courtyard with fountain and an amazing rooftop garden and sitting area with one of the best view in the San Antonio neighborhood. The high ceilinged rooms are spacious and full of vintage Mexican art including an antique chapel door.

The full kitchen is a joy to cook in, the beds are comfortable and there are lots of private spaces like the upstairs sitting area and covered patio adjacent to the beautiful backyard garden.

The space

Casa Christina is an authentic experience of real Mexico, San Miguel de Allende style. Set in the quiet district of San Antonio, it is only 2 blocks from the world famous Instituto which offers a wide range of Spanish and art classes. The Jardin at the center of town, is an easy 15 minute walk.

Stepping into Casa Christina’s walled-courtyard with its pre-Columbian sculptures in the fountain, immediately sets the relaxed pace of your visit. The spacious 3200 square foot house sits on a large lot and is furnished with antiques and the beautiful art collection of Robert Somerlot, a well known author who lived in San Miguel for 35 years. The living room is graced with 18th century carved chapel doors from a historical hacienda in the local area.

MAID & GARDEN SERVICE are included five days a week. We now have a breakfast option. Maria will prepare and serve breakfast for up to 4 people for $25 a week and for 5 to 8 people for $35 a week extra. You provide the groceries. She can also cook dinners for 200 pesos (she can shop for the food if you give her the pesos) or 300 pesos if she stays and serves the meal. The fountain courtyard or lower garden are ideal for outdoor meals.

The second story terrace is shared by the 2 upstairs bedrooms and has a view of the countryside. The rooftop garden with its incredible close-up view of San Antonio Church, is a wonderful place to enjoy the sunset, practice yoga or relax in a lounge chair with a good book.

Each of the 3 bedrooms has its own attached bath. The Master Suite and Lower Bedroom Suite have King-sized beds and a twin bed in thier sitting rooms. The third Bedroom has a Queen-sized bed. The Lower Bedroom Suite has a separate entrance and kitchenette.

While Casa Christina has thick cement walls the house is located in a city and we can not be responsible for noise in the neighborhood.

We had a superb time using the home, came with my three young adult kids (25 & 28 year old twins) and everyone had a their own private terrace for reading or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)ing or whatever. The curtains in the room were nice to create privacy as well. Maria is a FANTASTIC cook, we hired her to make dinner for our last night and it was absolutely excellent.

This is an amazingly beautiful house. The art and atmosphere are great, and watching the sun set over San Miguel from the rooftop terrace is beautiful.
