San Miguel de Allende Townhome Rental Photos and Description
2Bed/2.5 Bath Townhouse, Great View, close to centro historico, pet friendly
Nestled behind a high wrought-iron electric gate is your refuge in the magical town of San Miguel de Allende.

This property is directly behind the exclusive gated community known as 'La Aldea' and the hotel La Aldea with it's lovely solar heated pool and it's two tennis courts, both open to the public for a small fee. You are located just steps away from Calle Oriziba, colonia San Antonio's main thoroughfare where one can easily flag down a bus or taxi. The house is conveniently located a short walk from several of San Miguel's more popular restaurants, the weekly organic market on Saturdays and the Instituto Allende with it's art classes, galleries and monthly Artisan Craft Fairs . These fairs attract some of the finest craftspeople and folk artists in Mexico and are a great place to find that special rug, pottery, painting, piece of jewelry or textile treasure.

A broad flight of steps leads up to your private aerie. Tiled, plant-filled terraces with endless views over San Miguel and the surrounding mountains await you.
