The first time a friend took me there about six years ago, I could not believe my eyes. This 450-year-old hacienda is gorgeous and stunning and comfortably luxurious. It has been lovingly and beautifully restored. Since my first visit, I have taken four groups there and have also stayed there on my own, when it was totally quiet.
The staff makes it unforgettable. They are attentive and accommodating and lovely. By the time you leave, you are on a first-name basis with everyone. I have never encountered a problem they could not solve with grace and warmth. You feel that you have stepped back in time into your own private oasis. There are enough activities in the Hacienda to keep you both relaxed and energized. Have you ever had a private gym with oriental rugs?
I also love the location in the middle of nowhere. It is about an hour to San Miguel, Guanajuato city, and to Pozos, and about 15 minutes to Dolores Hidalgo. The Hacienda arranges transportation wherever you want. If you venture into the community of Las Trancas, you will see the life of a small Mexican pueblo. Go during a Mexican holiday, and you can join in the life of the community. This Hacienda is stunning and real.
