Casa Acanto

Casa Acanto
In case you haven’t heard, San Miguel de Allende is the place to be! Travel & Leisure Magazine rated it number one in its list of the top ten cities in Mexico, Central America, and South America.

This quaint colonial city is a thriving center for art, culture, and history where well-preserved buildings have become home to various art institutions and galleries over the past sixty years. Beautiful cathedrals and restaurants serve as the perfect backdrop for the many live music and arts events that you will encounter.

The package includes a one-week stay for up to ten people at Casa Acanto, a stunning five-bedroom home. Unlike typical courtyard houses, the home has been thoughtfully designed so that each bedroom has its own terrace, views, light, cross ventilation, and privacy.

Casa Acanto sits on a large lot dominated by three jacaranda trees. Cantera stone paving extends throughout the gardens, where fountains add beautiful touches (and sounds) to the lush atmosphere. The gardens are dramatically lit for nighttime entertaining.

The staff includes a daytime maid, a cook, and a gardener. An afternoon maid helps with cocktails and evening turndown service.

Also included are:

  • Roundtrip transportation for up to six people to/from Leon or Querétaro Airport
  • A well-stocked bar
  • Continental breakfast every morning
