Featured in design magazines and recognized locally for its outstanding architecture and striking interiors, Casa Encantada is one of the premier estates in San Miguel de Allende. Located just two blocks from the renowned language and art school, Instituto Allende, and a 5-minute walk from the town's epicenter, the Jardín, the villa is uniquely situated to take full advantage of San Miguel's best dining, shopping, cultural, and educational offerings. Magnificent walled gardens, roof terraces and courtyards, and a lavish hammam spa make Casa Encantada an oasis of peace and luxury in the bustling central core of the historic district.

Casa Encantada is fully staffed and caters up to 10 adults. The recently renovated property offers 5 spacious bedroom suites, 9 hotel-style bathrooms, a heated pool and an extraordinary spa complex. With 12,000 square feet of living and entertaining space, it is an ideal base home for guests seeking boutique hotel style, service and amenities with the added exclusivity of a private villa.

Casa Encantada blends classic Spanish architecture with fresh Mexican furnishings and fabrics. Much attention has been paid to designing simple, uncluttered, yet luxurious spaces. The decor is clean-lined, and a neutral color palate is paired with occasional bold accents.

Terrace and view

On the ground floor, decorative iron doors usher guests into the lovely foyer, where the large scale and gracious proportions of the villa become immediately apparent. Exposed beams, high ceilings, and tasteful art create an elegant, inviting atmosphere. In the adjacent living and dining rooms, comfortable furniture, warm colours and subdued lighting create spaces both ideal for conversing with friends or dining inside on a cool evening. Down the hall, the contemporary-style kitchen is fully equipped with a Professional Series eight-element Viking gas stove and French-door refrigerator, 2 gas ovens, dishwasher, plentiful cooking tools and ample surfaces for meal preparation and casual dining. Our attentive staff ensure that you spend as little time in here as you wish. Enjoy freshly-prepared Mexican specialties and local, seasonal fare.

A few steps further is our cozy library/media room with flat-screen TV (cable service includes CNN and BBC), a welcoming gas fireplace and well-stocked book-cases. The two bedroom suites on this level are luxurious, spacious and furnished in contemporary Mexican style. Upstairs, are 3 more bedroom suites, each with views of the cityscape or pool and gardens.

Steps from the vibrant pulse of San Miguel, the 5 luxurious bedroom suites are serene and romantic retreats. The suites are similar in size and decor but entirely separate from one another, giving guests a sense of privacy as well as the assurance of desirable sleeping options. Each offers a gas fireplace, seating area, lovely linens, walk-in closet with ample storage, iPod station and direct access to a large and beautiful bathroom en-suite. All-day maid service ensures that every stay is relaxed and seamless.

Rooftop patio

Outside and connected to the main house, is the 'sala' or open air living room. With views of the garden and pool, this appealing escape is perfect for afternoon tea or an evening cocktail. From here, step into the hammam spa, one of the villa's unique and most exquisite features. Designed to please the most discerning of sybarites, the hammam offers a stunning mosaic-tiled spa, change-room with lockers, pretty bathroom and multi-head, jetted shower.

Up to the roof, where the large terraces are wonderful places to dine or watch the sunset with a margarita. The largest terrace faces southeast with clear views of the San Miguel skyline, Bellas Artes building and unforgettable Parrochia Church. With an outdoor kitchen, built-in seating and large covered dining table for 12, it is the ideal venue for al fresco dining throughout the year.
