2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
San Miguel de Allende, Central Mexico and Gulf Coast
This beautiful home away from home is a wonderful combination of history and modern conveniences. The 22 inch thick walls keep the quiet interior comfortable and the terraces have some the best views in town. The outdoor covered living room, with cozy traditional furniture, is a guest favorite. Here you are surrounded with beautiful plants and the sights and sounds of San Miguel. There are two lovely, private terraces just outside this area, with views of cathedrals, jardins and all of San Miguel.

The entrance to the apartment is a wall of windows which keeps the 34 ft. x 24 ft. living room, dining area, and kitchen light and bright.

The super large bed was mucho... more

The accommodations were great, location was perfect, convenient to so many restaurants, and things to see. The views from the outdoor space were truly amazing. Friends had warned us about the church bells which rang often but after the first day they really did not bother us. San Miguel is a beautiful place and we hope to go back again... more

Management response:

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay so much! It is true that the location cannot be beat, the beds are super comfortable and the terrace and roof top are unlike any other spot in the world!! more

Alice's Palace is perfectly magical. A traditional colonial style-home, with lots of garden and other outdoor space that puts you squarely in the mood for this beautiful city. Far from the sterility of hotels and most rentals, you are truly home. The apartment is well appointed, private and full of beautiful art from Alice's travels. The covered outdoor patio was... more

Management response:
