Wonderful Vacation Houses For Rent Around The World
San Miguel de Allende, founded in 1542, is considered to be one
of the most beautiful towns in Mexico and it truly is a gem.
Located in the
mountains in central Mexico, San Miguel is about 160 miles north of Mexico City in the state of
Guanajuato. It's absolutely charming with narrow
cobblestone streets, lovely 18th century buildings and
marvelous houses, both grand and small. These intriguing casas
are generally hidden behind tall walls and are entered through
often-large elaborately carved wooden doors, which open into
courtyards. Fountains, gardens, loggias with fireplaces and
casitas are all part of what make San Miguel houses so
appealing. And almost all of them come with wonderful staff.
Many also have roof gardens overlooking this enchanting hillside town.
Part of the reason San Miguel remains so special is that it was declared
a national monument in 1926 and all new construction must conform to the
colonial architecture. And it's a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I fell in
love with it immediately.
