We found three "Jewels" nestled in the hillside overlooking San Miguel, above the hustle & bustle but still in Centro, just blocks from the Jardin & directly above Juarez Park. From the moment you enter the entry way into the "Jewels of San Miguel", you are transported from the colorful streets of San Miguel through the manicured garden - lush with evergreens, flowers and a trickling fountain...all sheltered by an overhanging 100+ year old Mesquite tree with the "Jewel" pendant hanging over the central courtyard. The gardens and fountains are beautifully illuminated at night providing the "setting" if you will, for each "jewel".
Entering this stunning Casita TOPAZ, you enter a different world - not that of Colonial Mexico, as you might expect, but rather the beauty of Morocco.
This spacious, Moroccan-inspired one (Queen) bedroom retreat, (with kitchenette) has colorful interiors, high ceilings, with windows and skylights that bathe the apartment with lots of natural sunlight. Enjoy evening cocktails on the private terrace while watching the churches illuminate at dusk. On those rare chilly nights, light the beautiful (hand carved) fireplace for those cozy, romantic evenings at home.
The integrity and elegant design of this gorgeous gem is unquestionable: It includes floor-to-ceiling glass windows, warm/soft lighting, stone floors, Talavera tile, hand carved columns and several niches displaying fine art/sculptures.
Uncompromising attention to detail was given to this majestic property by the previous owner (one of San Miguel's finest architects). Using only the finest materials, master artisans have skillfully crafted your "home away from home."
Rarely will you find an upscale casita in the Centro that offers this level of style and sensual sophistication, combined with its convenient location and magnificent vistas of Historic San Miguel.
Please Note: The pictures (except for the page photo) were all taken in the evening, this Casita is actually bathed with light in the daytime. It's just more romantic with all of its Moroccan lighting at night.....
