Welcome to Hacienda Las Trancas.
This huge 450 yr-old hacienda midway between San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato, is situated outside Dolores Hidalgo in a small, safe, friendly village. Rent a single suite or the entire hacienda. Hacienda las Trancas was recently featured in both Vogue and Food magazines. This property is furnished with colonial antiques and local artisan pieces. It is comfortably elegant, private, fully staffed, and includes cooks, maids, gardeners, stable and pool personnel, and massage therapists.
The hacienda is more than 40,000 square feet under roof, with ten walled-in private acres. There is a pool heated with a dozen solar panels to assure year-round comfort, plus jacuzzi. There are also lovely gardens and enormous porches. The accommodations feature fabulous suites with luxurious bedding with high thread-count linens, feather beds and down duvets. All meals, plus use of horses, private cybex gym, & mountain bikes are included. Price is for up to 10 people, with each additional person at $150/night. Children's prices are less, see our website.
Property Description: There are twelve beautiful barrel-vaulted elegant suites with beautiful views of the Sierra Madres, each with high speed Internet, satellite TV, fireplace, terrace, and private bath. Rental includes entire hacienda, or just rent a single suite.
This property is extremely child-friendly. All meals are included.
Perfect for Destination Weddings and workshops! Step out your door and onto the Silver Trail. This is an ideal location for visiting a different colonial town each day, or simply enjoying the best of Mexico's Bajio region. Shop for beautiful Talavera pottery in Dolores Hidalgo, or for everything in San Miguel, while you enjoy gourmet restaurants, hot springs, and golf. Wander the charming streets and cobbled alleys of Guanajuato. Practice your soccer skills on our soccer field, play ping pong, or challenge the locals to a game of volleyball on our private sand court. Spend a few hours horse-back riding down to the river, where you may see eagles. All meals, Horses, 17-piece Cybex exercise room and mountain bikes are included with your rental.
Spa services are available on site in our beautiful spa, with numerous treatments including full body, reflexology, hot stone, and facials. A chauffeur is available for a reasonable fee, as is a very knowledgeable bilingual guide for trail rides (horse, car or mountain bike), and seeing historic silver trail locations that most tourists never see. Full-time staff of 18, plus 6 massage therapists. Please see our website for more information. Although we are not a hotel we are happy to rent individual suites. When you rent the entire hacienda, it is yours for the week. This is obviously not your average vacation rental. Why rent a house when you can rent an entire hacienda! Our guests are delighted and amazed with their vacation experiences here.
We pamper and nurture you within our walls, and the small village allows you an authentic experience difficult to find in most tourist areas. Come see why Vogue chose to stay with us and photograph us for their San Miguel location shoot. Elegant, yet rustic and warm...You will love it! Once a presidio, or fort, along the silver trail in 1567, it became a hacienda in the 1700's. Walls are meter-thick adobe.
Rental rate is for up to 10 people. Each additional person is $150/night.
Thank you so much again for an extraordinary experience and wedding at Las Trancas. I really do not believe I have ever been anywhere more beautiful... not just the place itself, but all the little touches: the taste and awesome artifacts with which you guys have decorated it, the lovely staff, the food, everything. And the wedding was amazing, everyone said it was the best they had ever been to.
Your staff is remarkable... The wedding went down perfectly... Everything went exactly as we'd talked about. I think that's why it felt like a dream... There was no differentiating between what we hoped would happen and what did happen. The folkloric dancers were a huge hit (and what a great job they did!), and the tequila burro and the fireworks were a surprise to everyone. The fireworks even surprised Phil and me, they were SO GOOD! Everyone was just laughing and shouting and clapping hysterically. It was hilarious. The waitstaff and bartenders were wonderful. The trio - oh my gosh, they played the songs we'd picked out as if they'd written them themselves.
I know it must have take a lot of practice.
It was really special.
So clearly it was a thrilling, relaxing, fun, memorable-in-every-way week. I think our friends and family were really blown away by the Hacienda, the staff, and the way we did the wedding. Many of them told us it was the most unique and fun wedding they'd ever been to...The best part is that we did it that way for us, because that's the way we wanted to get married.
We still can't believe we pulled off a wedding just the way we wanted to do it, and everyone had such a blast.
My wife and I recently returned to Hacienda Las Trancas for the third time. Each visit, our groups have rented the entire hacienda for a week, so the experience has been somewhere between a resort and a rental property. I have tried to describe the place and experience to others, but there are no adequate words. For friends who have recently been there with us, there are also no adequate words, but now they understand.
We go with people who are like minded – if you're looking for a glitzy 5-star resort with smooth, shiny surfaces, this is not your place. It's 450 years old and full of texture and character. If you prefer authenticity and soul mixed with creativity and care, then it can be as special as you want it to be. It's casual elegance is nice and comfortable – rooms, grounds, food, everything. The staff are real people who you want to take home with you. The somewhat remote location inspires relaxation, but there's also plenty to do – when you include day trips into the must-see cities of Dolores Hidalgo, San Miguel and Guanajuato, the days fly by.
Our group of 20 arrived as friends and acquaintances. A week later, we left as family. The hacienda is the kind of place where that can happen. Since returning, we simply laugh and hug one another and try to tell others to trust us.
