About Villa Puerta del Sol

Villa Puerta del Sol is a masterpiece among the fine homes of colonial San Miguel de Allende.

It was designed and decorated by a well-known architect/design firm in San Miguel with high-quality, beautiful furnishings and original art from all over the world.

Villa Puerta del Sol is sited on the hillside to capture the full essence of the San Miguel panorama: the church spires of El Centro, with the mountains of Guanajuato as the distant backdrop.

The vibrant colors bring the whimsy and exhuberant lifestyle of Mexico into the house, and the property is beautifully landscaped with ferns and flowers, citrus-bearing fruit trees and exotic plants.

The covered outdoor "sala" with its grand fireplace is the perfect gathering spot for drinks or for reading a book.

Other outdoor entertaining spaces include the pool terrace and its raised dinning terrace for morning breakfasts, plus an upstairs terrace off the master suite for another place to be alone or for just "kicking back."

The spacious master suite is alone on the upper level of the house. It has a king bed, sitting area with fireplace, private terrace and spectacular his and her bathrooms, large armoire with satellite tv, and separate dressing areas. The adjacent office has a fax, the Vonage phone and ample work area, all part of the ultra-private master suite. Answer your e-mails on the private terrace overlooking this charming colonial city!

One guest room is in fact a separate casita with its own entance, queen bed, patio and bath with tub/shower. It also has a desk/sitting area with kitchenette. The casita is connected to the main home through its own private patio staircase up to the pool terrace on the main level -- very private!

The two other guest rooms feature a queen bed and a king bed -- both with luxury bedding including down comforters. These rooms are also outfitted with gas fireplaces. All bedrooms have terrace areas and garden views. Bathrooms are outfitted with hair dryers and bathrobes.

All bedding, towels and mattresses are of the finest quality. Sheets are high quality/high thread count, and pillows are non-allergenic.

There is also secure parking for 2 cars. The residential community, the most exclusive in San Miguel, is gated with 24-hour-guard service and has its own private clay tennis court.

The house has 5 satellite TVs with U.S. stations and a Vonage phoneline for free calls to the States. Internet connection is also available.

The indoor, formal dining area will seat 10 comfortably and the home features one of the best cooks in the city, not only for Mexican dishes but international fare as well. Sylvia the cook is there to make breakfast and comida 5 days a week, and breakfast only on Saturdays. You pay extra for the food, but her services are included. It is possible to have her stay later, with advance notice, to cook a special meal, in which case then you'd pay her hourly wages for the overtime, plus cabfare home after dark.

Ask Sylvia to prepare her famous "Rosa Margaritas", chicken flautas and mushroom empanadas! Food and drinks cost extra, but Sylvia is there Mon-Fri and 1/2 days on Sat to cook for you and manage the light cleaning. You will love her breakfasts!

Juan, the houseman, will carry your luggage, bring drinks and help with your every need. He assists Sylvia with the cleaning and also tends the pool and plantings.

Sylvia can also take care of your laundry.

Villa Puerta del Sol's staff includes a maid/cook and a houseman/gardener. For rental parties of 6 or more, we must bring in an extra chambermaid to help with the cleaning (so Sylvia can focus on cooking) for an additional cost of $70 USD/week.
