About David and Virginia Cordisco
We have traveled throughout Mexico for over 30 years, from the Yucatan, to Oaxaca, to the beach towns and ancient ruins. We love the warmth, the color and variety of flavors that greet you in this friendly country. After visiting San Miguel we fell in love! This marvelous town is quaint, offers ancient beauty as well as fine art, music of many genres and a choice of dining that indulges almost any wish. The people here are friendly and willing to go the extra mile to help. After discovering the town's lovely ambience we wanted to return again and again. We hope you too find San Miguel as enchanting as we have!
David and Virginia Cordisco purchased this House in 2017
Why David and Virginia Cordisco chose Colonia San Antonio
We love the privacy and natural charm of this bright and beautiful home. The central location and terrace views are simply magnificent! It is only a short walk (10 minutes) to the Jardín and town center, while being close to the Instituto de Allende, yet out of the hustle and bustle of Centro. Many fine restaurants, art galleries, studios and the beautiful Parque Juárez are only a short stroll away. The house is also in close proximity to colorful boutiques, artisan shops and handicraft stores. If you want a break from the cobblestone streets on occasion, taxis are readily available for only 30-50 pesos and will take you anywhere in town. We take great pleasure in that our casa is located on a quiet street surrounded by friendly Mexican, American and Canadian neighbors.
What makes this House unique
We found this home very easy to live in as well as being spacious enough to allow for privacy. The colors and natural light struck us from the beginning as well as the ample amount of closet space.The house has a very earthy Mexican charm which is very pleasing including a balcony off of every bedroom and a terrace with incredible views of San Miguel. All of the amenities of home are available including Wifi, laundry room, courtyard fountain, powder room on the ground floor and a fully equipped kitchen with a blender, coffee pot, toaster and microwave. All the terrace furniture is brand new. We are also proud of the artwork displayed throughout the casa. Our neighborhood is friendly with a beautiful walking district, art studios, small grocery stores and bakery - all making it a great choice should you visit San Miguel!

We love coming back to Alameda street in San Antonia. After a long day of walking along the streets of San Miguel, we are eager to relax in this beautiful home that has many private areas. Sometimes we sit by the fireplace in the early morning and warm ourselves with the fire and coffee. Other times, we make our way to the terrace to soak in the morning sun or to watch the sun go down in the evening. The house is very comfortable, full of handsome furnishings with a beautiful aesthetic. The house managers are very reliable and are responsive to any request that we make. We look forward to a returning next year.
Hola Janice and Steve, gracias for the wonderful remarks ...yes it is our oasis too! You know you are always welcome and we look forward to accommodating you again next year!
We had a wonderful time at Casa Alameda. We stayed over the Christmas Holiday and had a wonderful time. The views from the rooftop terrace were lovely. It was a little cold during our stay so the lovely fireplaces in every room were a wonderful addition. The property is very beautiful and comfortable with every amenity. We will come back to Casa Alameda during future visits to San Miguel. The location is very convenient to the center and we felt very safe during our stay. Thank you for a wonderful holiday!
We are so glad you were able to experience San Miguel during the holidays! And of course San Miguel is magical any time of year. Yes the fireplaces can take the nip out of a chilly December evening. Local artists designed each fireplace differently to our specifications. Lynore we are glad you enjoyed the location and we would be more than happy to accommodate you upon your return!! Thanks again!
A home that captures the spirit of San Miguel.
This very comfortable home filled with carefully selected artwork and furniture offers you a unique place to experience San Miguel. From the patio with fountain to the rooftop terrace this multilevel home offers mulitple spaces to retreat to. The location in a lovely neighborhood very walkable to Centro, Institute Allende, and multiple restaurants and shops. When you don't want to walk it is very easy to get a cab within a couple blocks as they come off Canal heading to Umaran. Nearby cafes are El Buen Cafe and Lavanda for breakfast or lunch, and Nomada is fabulous for dinner. San Miguel has so many terrific restaurants but these are especially close. Be sure to take in the Sunday home tours offered through the Biblioteca and enjoy breakfast before the tour at Inside Cafe, just across the street. So many options in San Miguel, it is truly a magical place with very friendly people.
Thank you so much Elizabeth for your kind words and we are happy you explored so much of our lovely neighborhood and San Miguel as well! Safety and convenience was our priority when we purchased our home. So glad you also spent time on the the rooftop terrace ...its a special spot and that you found the house spacious . . .offering multiple private areas. Please come back!
Can I give more than 5 stars?
The home exceeded our expectations. It was a delight to return to such beautiful and relaxing accommodations after a day in lovely San Miguel. Everything in the Casa Alameda was in top condition. The property manager and staff were warm and welcoming and helpful in every way. The owners were a delight, making certain that all arrangements were in order. Can’t wait to return.
So nice to hear you enjoyed the casa as well as Mexico's most beautiful city! It is visitors like you that make it worth opening up our home to guests. We would be more than happy to accommodate you the next time you are in town!
Captivating Casa Alameda
Our stay in Casa Alameda was outstanding from the moment we arrived and were greeted by Liliana who took us on a tour of the house, explaining everything from the coffee maker (a bag of coffee from Chiapas was provided) to the roof terrace. The house was not only immaculate but was a treat for the eyes, from the lovely furniture to the art work on the walls, mantles, and each nook and cranny. It was like being in a museum of art work from Mexican artists and artisans, so tastefully done. David was a perfect host, communicating several times to make sure all was well and to ask if there was anything we wanted or needed.
When (that is not an "if") I return to San Miguel, I will definitely stay at Casa Alameda. It is a beautiful home in a beautiful city, close enough to the Centro yet far enough away for quiet. Our week there was nothing short of extraordinary.
Thank you so much Patricia, your kind words bring tears to our eyes! Your sensibilities are just what we hope to bring to the casa and what we hope our guests who visit are looking for. Please do come again and enjoy this beautiful city.
Perfect place in San Miguel!
This is an exquisite home - beautifully furnished, elegant (all four levels!) with a gorgeous rooftop deck. I couldn’t recommend this home to you more highly. Do stay! You’ll love it!! Mary
