You rent and I travel! You rent for a week and I visit friends in MX City, or go to a beach. You rent a month and I go to Paris/NYC/D.C.,etc. Retired executive living full time in San Miguel de Allende. I teach English to locals at the SM School of English. When I travel and school is in session, I have a teacher to take my class.
I wanted to live in the 'Golden Triangle' area, because of the easy walk to all things. The rental is 1 of 14 adjacent townhouses with 7 on each side of driveway to open parking. These houses have thick walls. Property has locked gate entrance 24/7. Parking. Property manager lives on the grounds.
The house is my private residence. It is not a typical business rental and my personal things and food stuff remain. You will have ample closet space, of course.
We stayed in this town house for 3.5 months this year while Gordon travelled the world. The house is delightful, very comfortable and artfully decorated. Agripina comes 3 days a week to keep it clean and organized and the complex property manager, Anselmo, is always around if you need any assistance. There are 3 patios - one on the ground level off the living room, one on the 3rd floor and a great rooftop patio with comfortable lounge furniture and views of the hillside.
There are extra electric heaters to supplement the gas fireplaces when the weather is cold, but we rarely needed to use them. The kitchen is well-supplied for those that like to cook and the cable provider offers many, many channels (Canadians can watch all their favourite programs and keep up with the news at home on Shaw)
The Rosewood Hotel across the street provides free entertainment to us from it's Luna rooftop patio and lively wedding celebrations on the weekends. The Rosewood has a daily program for use of the pool and fitness center with a minimum spend of just over 400pesos.
This is an excellent location with access to many restaurants on the Ancha and just a short, easy walk to the Instituto Allende and Parque Juarez. The shortcut to the Jardin is out the back entrance on Tenerias.
Gordon is very charming and easy to deal with. We would stay here again if Gordon would take another extended vacation in the winter.
Conte Nast's Traveler magazine, voted that 500 year old San Miguel de Allende as the #1 place to visit in Mexico……and one place to see in the world! The 6000' mountain air is dry (No humidity) and the days are sunny.
This is a walking town with cheap taxis and cheaper buses. Although, there are no fast food places in the center city, there is a large and comfortable Starbucks adjacent to the main square (El Jardin).
English is spoken almost everywhere…..even my gardener speak English, while the older cleaning lady struggles.
Many wonderful restaurants and roof top bars, some even outstanding and world class as our the 5-star hotels.
Shopping in town is abundant with surprising finds.
Art is an important part of the culture of SMA and many, many galleries will delight you. Just out of the center is the high-end Fabrica Auroa with home furnishing, art, restaurants, decorations, and sculpture. A main attraction.
Another favorite besides horseback riding are the hot mineral baths about 15 minutes out of town. Many world cuisines are tuck away around town.
Live theater has several venues, even opera at the Opera House if you're lucky. Fringe Theater productions are in January and the next TED-X bi-lingual talks are expected again in 2016,
