Casa Caracol is nestled on the side of the mountain in a delightful neighborhood a short walk from city center. The view from the entire house is spectacular including the mountains and sunset. There is a large roof terrace with a 360 degree view, said by many to be one of the best in town, and small garden with fountain. Large sunny windows, Boveda ceilings, built-in couches, beautful painted details, a reading room, and a unique circular interior stairway filled with plants make Casa Caracol a delight to the eye. Heaters, rocking chairs, queen size beds, cotton sheets, and down comforters make it a comfortable place to live.
The house consists of three apartments on three floors and a guestroom each unit sleeping 2 people. You can rent one unit or all 4 if you have a big group. They all have a private entrance onto the plant filled central stairway. Weekly maid service is included. Additional services can be arranged.
San Miguel is noted for its art schools as well as many private teachers. Casa Caracol is an easy walk to the Instituto Allende.
Should you visit when the hosts are in residence you will be given a wealth of information and help as you settle into the area.
