Casa Alta Vista
From its exterior, Casa Alta Vista appears to be another of San Miguel's historic treasures! As a 16th Century Spanish Colonial home, as was the intention of acclaimed architect Manual Barbosa and internationally renowned interior designer Marcia Brown, completed the house in 2001.
Casa Alta Vista combines for the optimum in beauty and comfort in this gorgeous 6 bedroom, 6 bath, 6000 sq. ft. Villa. The home's stunning interiors will take you far beyond Mexico bringing together parts of Spain, Italy, France and Morocco creating a visual feast further enhanced by every modern convenience (the home comes electronically outfitted and includes a fully stocked gourmet kitchen.)

The lovely interior dining room seats ten persons and the outdoor dining seats eight. Once both are combined, which is easily done, there is seating for a total of eighteen persons. The rooms are both spacious and comfortable, lending themselves naturally to the congregation of family and friends.

Casa Alta Vista and San Miguel De Allende were a dream come to life
We had the most relaxing and wonderful stay at Casa Alta Vista. The Villa while quite expansive but also quite cozy. The Villa is situated in the most picturesque location in all of San Miguel. The Villa has very tasteful and comfortable furnishings combined with a very private setting with a perfect flow from suite to suite. The outdoor spaces are perfect for entertaining or just a romantic diner for two. The Staff were all professional, accommodating and a pleasure to have around. Fresh linens daily and a spotless house with the most beautiful gardens were a pleasure to wake up to every day. The best vacation we have had in many years. We would recommend staying at Casa Alta Vista without hesitation. Thank you to the owners for allowing use of their wonderful home. Frank and Lena”
The house is very spacious and the view is amazing! I'd love to go back!”
Top of the Town
My stay at Casa Alta Vista was wonderful! The casa is huge, yet intimate. The rooms are all worthy of being the master suite with king size beds (freshly ironed sheets every day) and private en suite baths. The location is in the historic centro, yet above it, so that every room has a fabulous view all day, starting with hot air balloons rising up over the city in the morning until breath taking sunsets with a view of the Parraquia in the evening. The cook, Teresa, fixed us fresh fruit, huevos ranchers and whatever we desired each morning. Her guacamole is the best and I am now recovering from serious avocado withdrawal. And of course, it was served with freshly fried corn tortillas. If you were just a couple, the main floor and the bedroom above it (where the swimming pool is located) would be perfect. If you were a large group or family, the case rambles on for 4 floors with a perfect place for everyone. It is a close walk or taxi to the jardin. (I heard it described as a 35/10 house...35 pesos or 10 minute walk). True! I walked everywhere to exercise off all the guacamole! San Miguel de Allende is one of the most magical places that I have ever visited. I keep asking myself "What took me so long?”
