Villa Feliz is located in a safe neighborhood; Enjoy concerts, lectures, plays, readings, dance performances and art openings held on a regular basis. The most popular restaurants, tennis, golf, gym, galleries and the Instituto Allende are within a short walk from Villa Feliz (no hills to climb).
San Miguel sits at 6300 feet altitude providing warm sunny days and cool nights.
Villa Feliz sleeps 2 to 10 comfortably and rates depend on the time of the year and/or the number of persons - there is also a loft that sleeps four. Well behaved children are welcome.
Both Guadalupe and Fernando are anxious for you to be comfortable and help you in any way they can. If requested, Fernando who speaks English, will take you to the super market where he can assist you with your original shopping trip.
The cook and the maid have the unique ability to 'spoil' guests and they really please everyone who walks through the front door. They both have a wonderful disposition and always a smile and helpful nature. If you desire privacy you can easily change their work schedules.
There are many different areas to sit peacefully and relax or the grand sala and outdoor dining area where guests can meet together. The connecting apartments are a big plus in this environment where everyone in your vacation group can have their separate 'space' when desired.

Cory Gray purchased this villa in 1997
The owner built this designer villa from scratch: This house has the charm, comfort and convenience which she enjoys when in residence. She says, 'I can live anywhere in the world and my choice for the past 30 years has been to live in this delightful haven; San Miguel is perfect for me with the activities and culture available' Gives me great pleasure to share this special place with visitors from near and far.
It is important that my guests enjoy their special vacation in this lovely, very private and comfortable home. The peaceful and very private ambiance of the entire house will entice guests to return to Villa Feliz. The house is located in a very safe neighborhood with very friendly and helpful Mexican and Gringo neighbors.
Guadalupe the cook/maid has the ability to 'spoil' guests and she really pleases anyone who walks through the front door. She has a wonderful disposition and always a smile and helpful nature. Fernando my bi-lingual assistant will greet you upon arrival and serve you a welcoming meal and make certain you are in comfortable surroundings.
There are so many different areas to sit peacefully and relax or the grand sala and outdoor dining area where couples or individuals can meet together. The connecting apartments are a big plus in this environment where everyone in your vacation group can have their separate 'space' when needed or if you are a couple this house offers total privacy, seclusion and comfort.
Yes we had a GREAT time! Villa Feliz is absolutely gorgeous, it was very hard to leave the comforts of the house. Guadalupe and Manuel were very gracious and patient with our lack of speaking Spanish. We felt like queens eating our breakfast in the wonderful courtyard. Angela walked a couple of blocks to yoga classes which she enjoyed and felt very safe doing. We had fun visiting the organic market, La Gruta, Fabrica La Aurora and shopping around San Miguel. We met many friendly and interesting people during our stay. Manuel suggested a great restaurant, El Pegaso, which we fell in love with. I think one of the staff fell in love with Angela, it was kind of cute.
I have been raving to my family and friends about Villa Feliz and San Miguel. I hope to plan a future trip to include a couple of people who I know would love your beautiful home just as much as we did. We are brushing up on our Spanish now so that we will be prepared for the next visit.
Villa Feliz and San Miguel were unforgettable and I can't wait to visit again!
Five of us—an 88 year old woman, three middle-aged women, and a 20-something woman—just returned from a week at one of the most beautiful spots in San Miguel. Villa Feliz is spacious, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The staff members are incredibly helpful about what to do and see. The owner, Cory, suggested a guide who took us to Guanajuato and Dolores Hidalgo as well as the Tuesday market in town. The house manager, Holly, was always available to suggest activities and give us advice. You can't go wrong staying here. I'd return in a heartbeat!
Villa Feliz is everything we expected and more. Three couples plus a single spent two weeks there this year. From
the courtyard to the main house, to the two individual apartments all tastefully decorated we never felt crowded. The household staff was also great. Lupita fixed wonderful meals for us. Always had a smile for everyone and even though she could not speak any English and we no Spanish communication was not a problem. Rosie was also a real jewel and made our stay most pleasant. Yalee the other housekeeper, although very shy, was also always keeping the place spotless. The owner Cory was very easy to work with and gave us much useful info about the home and the city. We truly hope we can return in the near future.
We gave ourselves the gift of a week in San Miguel,not knowing how challenging the winter of 2013/14 in Chicago was going to be. We arrived at Casa Feliz to be greeted with hot soup and a wonderful home. We relaxed for the week ,with trips to the market,hot springs, nearby cities and many good meals eaten out and at home. Guadalupe and Jackie spoiled us and it was wonderful! Thank you so much to you Cory,for providing such a welcoming home and all your suggestions re transportation and places to visit. We plan on returning .
Our stay In San Miguel was excellent, and one of the best things was where we stayed. The house is lovely, very comfortable and an easy walk or cab ride to everything. The staff is friendly and efficient. They helped us out several times and were a great resourse for us. We liked them a lot. We hope to stay there again when we return. The one problem we had was that we liked it so much, we wanted to stay at the house, on the roof terrace or in the front courtyard, rather than venture out.
Thank you Cory,
The town of San Miguel was amazing and your house blew away our expectations! We are really looking forward to coming back soon. Thank you for accommodating us at the last minute.
Marcelo was also great in providing a lot of my friends and family transportation to and from QRO airport.
This was our second visit to San Miguel in the last 3 years. We loved every minute of it and know we will be back again and again. Villa Feliz was perfect for us and ideally located with a short walk to the town center. The house has been lovingly built and provides all the modern amenities we are all used to but has all the charm of a lovely colonial casita, complete with courtyard, outside sala and privacy galore which means so much to us. The sunsets were AMAZING! San Miguel de Allende offers so much, it is hard to say all in a short review. Suffice to say that it has restaurants, culture, art, color, music, sports, and a carefree relaxed environment. My husband and I are not artists but it is easy to see why writers and artists of all kinds would find inspiration in such a lovely place. The Mexican people are a joy to be with if you are interested in imbedding yourselves in their rich culture. Can't wait to go back next year! Malena the full time maid/cook spoiled us and taught me several of her wonderful Mexican recipes. We are just a couple but loved the feeling of the large home rather than a small casita or hotel room. Hopefully we will be able to come back to this perfect San Miguel vacation home soon.
