About the property

5 bedroom house close town center.

The house was built by descendants of the Cornish settlers. It has high ceilings and large spaces. It is surrounded by a garden and it has a nice terrace which keeps the house warm throughout the whole year via passive thermal mass heat.

The main bedroom has a king size bed and a door that communicates with a twin size bedroom, so a family could sleep very comfortably.

On the other side of the house a queen bedroom is located on the second floor with a very nice view of the town and on the first floor a twin bedroom.

It is a great house for relaxing and enjoying nature and a typical mexican town surrounded by nature and local customs.

Guest access

You have access to the house. The meditation, yoga room that is outside the house is not included.

Parties are not allowed for more than 10 people.

The neighborhood

Real del Monte is a small mining town. The town´s steep streets, stairways and small squares are lined with low buildings, some dating back to the Spanish colonial period. The older houses with high sloping roofs and chimney in town show the 19th century Cornish and English influence.

There you can visit the English cementery, Acosta Mine where you can learn about its history and relevant aspects of mining work. On the site are vestiges and architectural installations, testimony of its historical stages: the colony, immigration and British investment in the region by starting the steam era and the advent of electricity with US investors. You can go inside the mine where you will meet a vein of silver, after a historical overview of the work of mining.


Real del Monte is a home of the british pasties in Mexico, with 30 pastie producers in the town. A little larger than cocktail pasties common in the UK, the Mexican-made versions are widely varied including: meat and potato, black bean, shredded chicken, and sausage, all heavily laced with chillies plus a range of sweet pasties including: pineapple, apple, strawberry and blackberry.

You can take a walk through El Hiloche Park where you can be surrounded by nature and if you like to take larger walks you can visit the National Park El Chico which is a 15 min drive from the town of Real del Monte.

About Lorena Conde

We used to live in this amazing house 4 year´s ago... we simply loved it.

We lived in the small town of Real del Monte and worked in the city of Pachuca, only 20 minutes away. It was wonderful to have a blue clear sky, to see the stars almost every night and the early morning's mist. On weekends we would have a walk in the nearby forest or we would take our motorcycles and have a tour through the small towns nearby. Our eldest daughter lived there for a year and she still loves to go to our "house in the woods" whenever we have the opportunity to get away from the city.

Now we live in Mexico City and we love that our historic home can be enjoyed by other people and families that will come to love this place as much as we did.

Lorena Conde purchased this house in 2010

Why Lorena Conde chose San Ignacio

The house was built around 1924 by Cornish miner's descendants, who made Real del Monte their permanent home and the house was sold to us only 5 years ago. We have done extensive restoration work to the house to keep it true to it's original style, we added a covered terrace to bring heat to all the rooms via passive heating, the sun will heat the whole house during cold seasons without turning on heaters or fireplaces, it is comfortable and warm all year round. We are also meditators, so we built a meditation and yoga room separate from the house, where a yoga class can be arranged if desired.

We hope that you enjoy your stay and thank you for considering our home as a part of your vacation in this beautiful country.
