Casa de San Miguel de Allende

There is something so incredibly magical about the homes in my beloved San Miguel de Allende. The cobblestone streets of this little colonial town in Mexico are lined with unsuspecting doors, most of which open up into the most magnificent open courtyards and dwellings. High beamed ceilings, oversized Spanish style furniture, four poster beds, outdoor living rooms and lush gardens are not uncommon – it’s no wonder so many retreat to Mexico’s best kept secret.

  2. Wow the home decor is truely stunning. I’ve never even heard of this little town. Whenever I think of Mexico I think of spring break in Cancun (the worst). I shouldnt judge a whole country on that because I’m sure there are little gems like these.
    Great find!

  16. Ahh, thanks for the trip down memory lane.
    I first went to San Miguel when I was 12 in 1967. My last trip was a year ago. I spent two years at the Instituto in the 70s. It feels like home to me and this post makes me wish I was on a plane now.
    Then again- I always wish I was on a plane.
    Gorgeous interiors.
    Mil gracias.

    Aw, so beautiful. I’ve been to San Miguel twice, and each time was completely blown away by the houses I was staying in. The first was a converted church a few blocks off of the main square, and the second was up in the hills with a few of the city. One of my favorite places in the world!

      @Whatsinmyworld If you’re in town for a short trip, I’d recommend Casa de Sierra Nevada or Rosewood San Miguel de Allende. If you have more time to spend in SMA, I would definitely recommend renting a villa!

  24. Renovation is always a good choice. This house is great. Thanks for sharing. Keep in mind that you definitely need to call professional cleaners to help you. It is really exhausting cleaning after a renovation.

    Thank you for sharing these incredible pictures!!!!. I now this post is from a year ago but I just found it! Lucky me!!!!!

    Looking closely at the photo of the living room, I could see, above the mantle, the great painting of the standing woman by Diego Rivera, I can only guess,that it is the original piece from the one in Hotel Matilda, a boutique hotel in San Miguel which is named after this painting. The woman Rivera painted, by the way, is the owner´s mother…! Great stories to be told in San Miguel!
    I´m currently writing a few posts on San Miguel , so this is definitely worth sharing!
    Gracias….Pia.
