Located only a seven minute walk to the Jardin, this delightful house is perfect for an intimate vacation or up to three couples, with very private quarters for everyone. It works beautifully for families, too. And unlike many San Miguel homes which are not geared to those of us addicted to creature comforts, three fireplaces and heat in every room insures that you'll stay warm during even the cool winter months.
Totally renovated in 2005, this bright, airy home circles around the central patio, with fountain and garden. Here you can enjoy the splashing of the fountain as you linger over a late breakfast or sunbathe on one of the lounges on the roof terrace. The "great room" is perfect for an evening with friends and family, just visiting or watching a movie in front of the fireplace after a gourmet meal prepared in one of the nicest kitchens in San Miguel.
The home has two bedrooms with double beds on the ground floor. Each has French doors and windows opening out onto the patio and an en suite bathroom with shower. The delightful "great room" opens onto the central patio as well, and features stylish, up-scale furnishings and charming local crafts. There is an entertaiment center in the corner, with cable TV, DVD, and stereo.
The dining table, which sits between the living area and the kitchen, seats up to seven, or you can dine in the garden. In the kitchen broad, tiled counters, new major appliances, a pantry, and plenty of light make cooking a pleasure. A couple of stools at the counters enable visitors to cheer the cook on. And if you're missing any ingredients, nearby markets solve the problem.
Up a flower-lined stairway, is the broad roof terrace with views of roof-tops, cupolas, and downtown church domes. The master suite, with French doors onto the terrace, has a bedroom with fireplace and queen-size bed. Beyond the bathroom is a study/sitting room with extra closet space, a fireplace, desk and day bed. This room also has an entrance onto the terrace, in case you wish to use it as a fourth bedroom.
Convenient to the ever-fascinating San Juan de Dios Market,around the corner from the popular Warren Hardy language school, and eight minutes from the Instituto de Allende, Casa Solere is close to everything. After an exciting day of touring, taking classes, or attending concerts, lectures, gallery openings, or going clubbing, you return to the peace and quiet of Casa Solere and listen to the splashing of the fountain in your own private sanctuary.
The maid, comes to clean and change the linens. She is scheduled for three times a week, but is always pleased to come more often to cook, or to babysit (all for an extra fee). As she speaks English, she is a great resource for information about the town or the market. The property is also professionally managed by an English speaking manager who is on call, in case you have any problems.
Staying in Casa Solere will guarantee you a delightful vacation in San Miguel de Allende.
