As you step into the Andalusian-style courtyard of this elegant, early 18th-century San Miguel villa, you enter a world of tranquility, luxury and history. Beautifully restored first in 1985 and then updated and refurbished in 2005, this 7,000-square-foot, one-story residence is one of only four major properties in San Miguel with its original four-sided, columned loggia courtyard intact. Less than two short blocks from the Jardin and steps away from San Miguel's finest restaurants and shops, this grand old property is a showcase of the best of Spanish architecture in colonial Mexico, featuring ancient cantera archways, high ceilings with hand-finished hardwood beams, handmade terracotta floors and oversized doors of mahogany and beveled glass.
The stately colonial interiors have been re-imagined for modern living -- with a mix of antiques and stunning contemporary furnishings. There are four master suites (three kings and one with two twins close together) outfitted with the finest linens, one additional bedroom above the kitchen patio with two double beds, and a sixth bedroom that can be used as a sitting room or extra room with a double bed for a personal assistant or other visitor during your stay. All bedrooms have fireplaces and adjoining private bathrooms.
The gracious public living spaces (all with fireplaces) at Casa Capricho include:
- a stunning formal living room,
- a magnificent library,
- a cozy media room with satellite TV, and with Internet connection and Vonage phone service to the U.S. in the next-door study,
- a grand dining room with 35-foot ceilings,
- glassed-in breakfast room.
A modern kitchen is the domain of the house cook. Alongside the central courtyard is a "sala abierta" -- an open-air, covered terrace, which invites you to enjoy the indoor/outdoor living for which San Miguel is so famous.
Casa Capricho has a charming rear garden courtyard leading to the pool and outdoor Jacuzzi, graced by ancient stone walls and columns and a secluded lounging area. Up a newly erected stone staircase is the spacious roof terrace with vistas of the countryside on one side and the steeples and domes of the nearby Parroquia church, the heart and soul of Centro San Miguel, on the other.
To cater to your every need during your San Miguel stay, Casa Capricho comes fully staffed with a bi-lingual majordomo/house manager (who lives in an apartment on the property), a chambermaid, a cook (to prepare breakfast and mid-day comida) and a gardener. With its location-location-location, historic structure and elegant appointments, Casa Capricho is graciously ready to welcome the most discriminating world traveler.
