Outdoor Sala
Living Room

A perfect colonial town house located on Calle Terraplen, a very quiet street in the historic center of San Miguel. Just two and a half flat blocks to the Jardín, one block to Park Juárez.

The best of the old and the new meet in this very comfortable home.

With traditional brick floors, stucco walls and five fireplaces, Casa Corazon also features all new furnishings in a brand new renovation, designed by one of San Miguel's finest architects in collaboration with the owner of the house, a Hollywood screenwriter and director.

Enter this quiet 19th century haven through the traditional "zaguan" and you will come to a beautiful courtyard with a stone fountain. Off the courtyard, the wood beamed living room beckons with its wood burning fireplace, plush upholstered furniture, TV, DVD, Internet connections (wireless and DSL) and shelves filled with books.

Dining Area

From the living room, move into the dining room where hand painted chairs surround a black polished table. Serve dinner in front of the fireplace on uniquely designed pottery which, like everything else in the house, was commissioned from local artists especially for Casa Corazon.

The kitchen is decorated with hand painted Talavera tiles and is equipped with all brand new appliances as well as a state of the art water purification system. The house maid and cook is available six days a week. She speaks Spanish and English and works wonders in this beautifully designed "cocina".

Roof Terrace

The ground floor master bedroom has a king bed and a cozy sitting area in front of a fireplace. This bedroom connects to the courtyard through glass doors. The master bathroom has double sinks and an oversized shower.

On the second floor is another bedroom with an en suite bathroom and dressing area. This bedroom has a queen bed and a fireplace, as well as a terrace overlooking the courtyard below. The bathroom has a tub/shower combination. Towels and linens for both bedrooms are of the highest quality.

Also on the second floor is the "Sala" or outdoor living room. A favorite room of the house, the sala features a woven wood ceiling, a massive wood burning fireplace and traditional Icipal furniture. Beyond the sala is the second floor terrace where potted trees shade a table and chairs and a built in corner seating area ...perfect for evening ccocktails or curling up with a book in the afternoon.


Finally, Casa Corazon offers a spectacular view of San Miguel from its roof top terrace. Lying on a chaise and totally relaxing, you can take in the sunset from this beautiful vantage point. There is no more perfect way to appreciate the magic of San Miguel.
