San Miguel De Allende

Arguably the prettiest town in Mexico, San Miguel manages to be both quaint and cosmopolitan at the same time. A World UNESCO site protects the 17th and 18th century historic center, while allowing the locals, and you, to enjoy a unique experience of harmony between the old and the new.

Once an important stop on the silver route between Zacatecas and Mexico City, San Miguel de Allende has an air of tranquility about it, yet there is always something happening. The Jardin, or Garden comes alive in the evening with live music, dancing and local food vendors. In the historic center, there are over 2000 doors, behind which there are at least 2000 courtyards of various sizes. The town is noted for its streetscapes that rise and fall over the hilly terrain.

With its narrow, cobblestone lanes, colorful homes and beautiful gardens, San Miguel provides a genuine view of Mexico. Named the #3 Best City in the World and the #1 City in Mexico, Central, and South America, it is a destination where you will enjoy great cooking, memorable meals, and unlimited fun!

During the week we will take you to visit some of our close neighbors–ancient ruins, the Sanctuary of Jesus de Atotonilco, as well as local craftsmen who are masters of their art. And of course, we will give you time to relax under the Mexican sky by the pool, or the outdoor fire in our beautiful Casa Novem.
