About Casa Bella

The luxurious Casa Bella will enchant you at every turn.

Newly constructed in the old colonial style, this lovely villa is a showcase of fine local craftsmanship, featuring the best of handmade artisan tiles, exquisite cantera stonework and custom-designed furnishings.

Available for rental in two price structures -- either as a luxury two-bedroom retreat for up to four people, or as a three-bedroom casa for five to six people - Casa Bella provides the ultimate comfort and opportunity to experience the grand lifestyle for which San Miguel is so famous.

Beautifully appointed with quality linens and appliances, the home has everything you need for a relaxing stay in a quiet, upscale residential neighborhood of this historical town.

Hungry? Let Barnabe, the houseman/chef prepare your meals. He can make a family-style breakfast as part of your rental (you pay extra for the actual food) and he can also make an occasional mid-day comida (in that case, you'd pay him extra, 60 pesos/hour, for his time, plus the cost of the food). His services come with the house on Monday to Friday from 9 am to 3 pm and on Saturdays from 9 am to noon. You also can make arrangements for him to prepare and serve a special evening meal - or bartend for your cocktail hour - for an extra fee.

Need laundry done? The chambermaid can run a load for you once or twice a week and do some personal ironing. She comes 3x weekly to clean and do laundry, and she will tend to her chores discreetly, staying out of your way. On the days she isn't there (except not on Sundays), Barnabe also assumes the cleaning and bedmaking duties.

Casa Bella has everything visitors want in a San Miguel villa - five fireplaces with beautifully carved cantera limestone mantles, domed brick boveda ceilings, stone floors with inset tilework, satellite TV with U.S. stations, high-speed Internet connection (a cable is provided gratis for access to your own laptop), an outdoor covered sala for lounging and dining al fresco, a lovely garden with dramatic water feature, entry courtyard with fountain, eat-in kitchen as well as a formal dining room, roof terrace with incredible vistas toward Centro and across the surrounding countryside, safe parking in the owner's garage, plus a level walk to town.

There is an outdoor jacuzzi at the end of the reflecting pool. If guests wish to have it fired up for use during their stay, there is a fee of $100 USD per week for the use of it, with proper maintenance and heating.

The master bedroom on the second floor has a king bed, large dressing room/closet and marble bathroom with both tub and shower. This bedroom opens out onto its own sunny terrace. Another upstairs bedroom has two twin beds, a small terrace and its own bathroom with shower. The downstairs questroom has a king bed, its own shower bathroom, and access to the garden with its own sitting terrace. There also is a small upstairs study, yet another retreat in this spacious home.

From its quiet location in the upscale Guadiana residential neighborhood, you can easily walk to the Jardin in 15 minutes or to the nearby Insituto Allende, the famed art and language school, in just 5 minutes.

Restaurants, gourmet delis, one of the best cake bakeries in town and other local convenience stores are just minutes away by foot.
