A beautiful home in a beautiful city.
I have visited San Miguel de Allende for six years, staying at five different homes. The last two years, my wife and I have stayed at Casa Bella. In short, the home is drop-dead gorgeous. First of all, Gudaiana is, in my opinion, one of the best areas in which to stay. It is quiet, very safe and walking distance to just about everywhere: Centro (the center of San Miguel), the Art Institute, shopping, restaurants, parks, supermarkets and small neighborhood food and produce shops. We join a gymnasium during our stay and it only a short walk away.
Casa Bella, the house itself, is truly a beautiful house. The furnishings are elegant yet practical and functional. The master suite makes you feel like you are swept away to a luxury spa with a wonderful king sized bed, private balcony that extends the entire length of the second floor of the rear of the house, a beautiful attached master bath with jacuzzi tub and separate shower. Wonderful added touches include plush towels and luxurious bed linens.
Our daughter and her husband have visited us for a week both of the last two years and the second bedroom suite on the main floor provided them (and us) with space and privacy. The living areas are spacious yet comfortable and welcoming.
The beautiful grounds and fountains make you feel like you are in Paradise in Mexico. The outdoor hot tub in the backyard was the perfect place to unwind and relax after a day of sightseeing, hiking, shopping or whatever you enjoy doing in San Miguel.
But one of the greatest assets of Casa Bella is the staff. Anjelica is the hard working maid that keeps the place spotless and changes the linens and towels. Bernabe is the man who cares for the gardens, the fountains, the hot tub, cleans all the windows and glass doors and sees that everything is in perfect working order. He is a fabulous chef and loves to cook for us. Some of his creations for our recent stay included tortilla soup (the best we have ever had), chicken enchiladas with verde souce, juevos rancheros, guacamole, delicious salads, and meatballs. Everything was top-notch - worthy of any of the finer restaurants in town.
Speaking of restaurants, San Miguel boasts some of the best. There is plenty to do around San Miguel and there are numerous opportunities for day trips or overnight trips to visit interesting, beautiful and historic places.
If you are coming to San Miguel, we highly recommend Casa Bella. Just don't try to come when we are renting it.
