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.

We are Canadian, born in France and Québec.
We fell in love with San Miguel de Allende at first sight and decided that it was a perfect place to spend the winters when we retire. We are now learning Spanish to be able to do volunteer work there. In the meantime, as we are still working, we decided to share our place with like-minded people.
