eStudio UNO is on the entry level and opens out into a a circular stonework garden courtyard. A curved textured wall seperates the sleeping area with a king bed,from the open plan living/dining/kitchen area. Two handmade cottonwood tables offer space for meals and are moveable to use as a desk as well.Sleeping area has large closets and shelves and a ensuite spacious rainshower bathroom.Very comfortable and stylish with a mix of traditional and Mexican Modern detail,art and quality furnishings.

Walkable 30 minutes total trip/ 7 minute cab/local bus stops every 10 minutes at bottom of our street.Our street is on a slight hill so the return walk is a short distance of 5 houses but steep (as is much of SMDA)

Interaction with Guests

We can turn you on to all things on offer from quirky to elegant in this amazing town. We are engaging hosts (as you can see from our reviews on our other listings.) We love to share our discoveries as lovers of great food, music, architecture, archaeology, history and both ancient and modern culture.

You will have all the maps and local suggestions you may need for a magical stay in San Miguel!

We have been managing properties a long time and are very aware of creating comfort for our guests! if we are away, we have a wonderful manager that will check you in and make sure that you have everything you need.

The Neighborhood

The eStudio is nestled on a hillside in a country-like setting NOT in Centro San Miguel, but very accesible-which is what we love about it! Our safe,quiet no-through fare cobblestone street is located in Monte de Loreto, a new but typical Mexican Colonia which has both Mexican and International residents. We know all our neighbours and are part of "Neighbourhood Watch" Our street sits off a country road aside an old ranching property with panoramic vistas overlooking the mountains and the church steepled spires of the historic center. Besides the city markets, we have a local market on Mondays and Saturdays in the next neighbourhood about 5 blocks away. Every restaurant in town delivers-all for a $3 tip! Pizza and local street food is available nearby and there are also small "tiendas" or stores throughout the neighbourhood, and fresh tortillas are delivered to our street daily. There is a very inexpensive but well equipped gym in walking distance and numerous yoga,dance and Zumba classes close by. At the top of our street there is a biking/walking/running track that leads to the to botanical gardens and water reservoir. There is also a children's playground a few minutes walk away.

Getting Around

Located just 10 minutes north beyond the Fabrica Aurora Art & Design Center, a further 15 minute walk to center of town,central markets and Jardin! That is only one mile/a walkable 30 minutes total trip or 7 minute cab/local bus ride to the Jardin in Centro Historico.

-The local bus stops every 10 minutes at bottom of our street and for 50 cents takes you directly to the modern shopping mall/ supermarkets, "Tianguis" Tuesday market or into town.
-If you do not want to walk the whole distance into town and cabs are safe,plentiful and inexpensive at $3-4 per ride.
-We often walk into town and cab it back if shopping or if it is too hot or at night.
-Cabs will take you to the hotsprings for about $10 and private tours,shuttles and private cars are also readily available.
-Close Fabrica Aurora Art & Design Center and the Guadalupe Arts District-both with great restaurants,regular art openings,organic grocery and interesting shops and galleries.
-We are also well located to both the big central markets-one in Centro,the other San Juan Dios.Both are filled with fresh fruit, meats,fish,vegetables and flowers. (and great taco stands!)

Getting Out of Town
We are minutes from several hot springs,golf courses and horse trail riding and the highway that leads to all the shopping centers and other major towns of interest such as Atotonilco and Dolores Hildago-the talvera pottery center, antique yards,several haciendas,wineries and agarve and organic farms. A car is useful but not necessary except for touring. Cabs will take you to the hotsprings for about $10 and private tours,shuttles and private cars are also readily available.

Other Things to Note

Some houses in San Miguel can be dark, cute but not comfortable,massive in scale, draughty and cold, or are in neighbourhoods that are crowded and constantly noisy.There are benefits of being right in Centro but we offer the serenity of being just outside of the San Miguel yet having access to all the action whenever we want it being a short distance to town. Although we do not have traffic or music or crowded conditions in our area,this is Mexico and fireworks,domestic dogs barking and festival music is part of the culture and therefore part of the soundscape!

As a painter and sculptor we know the local art scene & where the best classes are. The property is close to both the Fabrica Auruoa and Guadalupe Arts District,where there are many art classes held. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you want answered before you arrive or travel options you want to explore.
