About this listing
Enjoy an easy life in this casita tucked away on the grounds of an old hacienda! A 10 minute flat walk to the jardin, it is close enough to enjoy the activities of centro, yet it offers you the peace and quiet of its beautiful garden.
The casita will become your retreat after a busy day in the centro. It is nestled in a fragrant garden where cacti mix with mediterranean plants. As it is our second home, you will find it comfortably furnished, lovingly decorated and fully-equipped. A two-story window brings light into the living-room and offers a view into the common garden. The dining-room area faces the patio where comfortable chairs and a fountain await. The kitchen is actually a place where you can cook, complete with small appliances, a profusion of utensils, pots and pans. One bedroom and bathroom are located on the first floor while the other bedroom and its bathroom are located on the second floor. They are each furnished with a queen-size bed. The study is a great place to work, read, do your art projects or yoga! It opens onto a sunny patio where that second cup of tea or coffee tastes better.
We have reliable wi-fi internet, cable TV with about 100 channels both in Spanish and English and a DVD player with dozens of movies.
There is a washer and dryer if you choose to do your laundry.
The housekeeper will come two hours twice a week to clean and water the plants.
Your car will be safe in the gated parking lot, a real luxury in San Miguel.
Someone is always on the premises: a gardener attends to the common grounds during the day and a watchman is in attendance at night.
Interaction with Guests
Veronica, our property manager will welcome you, hand you the keys and answer all your questions. We will keep in touch as well to make sure that your stay goes as smoothly as possible.
We are two minutes away from La Fabrica Aurora, five minutes away from the market and ten (real!) minutes away from the Jardin, the heart of the city. You will be able to enjoy the many fiestas for which San Miguel is famous, yet you should sleep soundly at night. The bells, the dogs and the traffic are at a distance.
Our neighbours are a mix of Mexicans, Americans and Canadians who love their peace and quiet. Some are artists, most are retired. They will welcome you in their community if you feel like it or will leave you alone if that is what you need.
The cultural life in this gorgeous colonial town is amazing. You can watch the latest movies at the Pocket Theatre, listen to a classical concert at St. Paul's Church, attend a lecture at la Biblioteca, go to an art show or simply chill in one of the many courtyard restaurants.
You don't need a car in San Miguel as everything is close by. Walking on the cobblestones will keep you fit! A bus ride is 5 pesos and a cab, anywhere in the city, will cost 30 pesos during the day and 35 pesos after 10:00 pm.
