  • My family used Tierra Adentro this spring for our parent's 50th wedding anniversary party. Our entire family from all over Mexico and America came and we had an AMAZING time!!! This house fit all of us comfortably without everyone living on top of one another. We especially love San Miguel because there is something for everyone to do in town. The kids like horseback riding, the men go golfing and me & my sisters love the spa at Rosewood. I HIGHLY recommend it!! Thanks again John!!! :)

  • I and my husband stayed here for our anniversary last winter. The staff was unbelievably welcoming and the landscape was breathtaking. This was a kind of second honeymoon for me and my husband - and this was a great pick for a long romantic getaway. I can't wait to go back!

Hi! My name is John Houshmand. I am an artist, musician, furniture designer, and interior architect living and working between NYC and the Catskills. A few years ago I decided to create a retreat for myself in my favorite part of Mexico - San Miguel - where I was free to create and relax in a thriving artistic community surrounded by nature. I and David Howell (my friend and the architect of Villa Tierra Adentro) worked hard to create a home where my friends and family could come, chill out and enjoy each other's company in the heart of Mexico. I know you will enjoy your stay at Villa Tierra Adentro. Feel free to contact me with questions. Thank you!
