A week in Casa Puesta del Sol

I spent a week in San Miguel earlier this month and stayed in this beautiful house. The most memorable thing about San Miguel was the gorgeous views from the rooftop. I was literally up in the rooftop every single day I was there, whether early in the morning, or around sunset, or while enjoying a glass of wine under the stars.
The house itself is incredibly well designed. I always love houses with lots of natural light so I knew I'd like this house immediately. The colors are warm and fitting for Mexico and so are all the little decorative details. The rooms are spacious and the living area on the ground floor will easily accommodate a family or a group of friends traveling together. The kitchen is great as well. If you're looking to cook instead of eating out every night then this is the kitchen for you. There's also a little garden where you can choose to have brunch or of course the rooftop. I can't be effusive enough about the rooftop!
San Miguel itself is a charming little town and the center of town is within walking distance. I'd recommend walking into town then taking a cab back since those hills can be quite a challenge. Spend your day exploring the multiple churches and staring at the wood and iron work of old homes or inside the different private galleries in town. For excursions outside of the city Guanajuato, another UNESCO heritage site is only an hour and 15 mins by bus. And the Canada de la Virgen, half an hour from San Miguel, is worth seeing. There's also the hot springs at La Gruta. For shopping I recommend stopping by at the Artisans Market.
All in all my week at San Miguel was a wonderful one and Casa Puesta del Sol was a great house to stay at.
