Casa Christina é uma experiência autêntica do México real, estilo San Miguel de Allende. Situado em zona tranquila de San Antonio, que está a apenas 2 quarteirões do mundialmente famoso Instituto que oferece uma grande variedade de aulas de espanhol e de arte. O Jardin no centro da cidade, fica a apenas 15 minutos de caminhada. Pisando em paredes de pátio da Casa Christina com suas esculturas pré-colombianas na fonte, imediatamente define o ritmo de sua visita. O espaçoso 3200 metros quadrados casa fica em um lote grande e está decorado com antiguidades e da coleção de arte bonita de Robert Somerlot, um autor bem conhecido que viveu em San Miguel há 35 anos. A sala de estar é agraciado com esculpida do século 18 portas da capela de uma fazenda históricos na área local. Empregada doméstica e serviço de jardinagem estão incluídas três dias por semana. A fonte do pátio ou menor jardim são ideais para refeições ao ar livre.
O segundo terraço história é compartilhada pelos dois quartos no andar de cima e tem uma vista para o campo. O jardim no terraço com sua incrível visão de perto da Igreja de Santo Antônio, é um lugar maravilhoso para desfrutar o pôr do sol, praticar ioga ou relaxar em uma poltrona com um bom livro. Cada um dos 3 quartos tem seu próprio banheiro anexo. A Suíte Master e Lower Bedroom Suite tem king-size camas e uma cama de solteiro em suas salas de estar. O terceiro quarto tem uma cama queen-size. The Suite Lower Bedroom tem uma entrada e cozinha separada.
Casa Christina is a beautiful and spacious house and was an absolute delight for the month we stayed there. The décor is lovely with an extensive art collection. The many paintings, pieces of sculpture and Folk Art pieces all lend a wonderful ambiance of old Mexico. There is a beautiful garden and good-sized yard adjoining the loggia downstairs that was a favorite spot for us to enjoy afternoon Margaritas. Flowers are everywhere and well tended by Aurelio, the gardener, who also makes sure there is plenty of bottled water on all three levels. There are lovely vistas from both the roof garden and the second floor terrace. From the roof garden you can see San Antonio Church, the mountains to the west (beautiful sunsets!) and the colorful and varied views of Col. San Antonio everyday life. The roof garden is a great spot to get a suntan, read or just completely relax.
The kitchen is bright and cheerful with windows on two sides and well appointed with good cookware and a beautiful collection of Talavera dinnerware. We had fun shopping in the local markets on Ancha de San Antonio for food and the abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables is incredible. There are also little stores just a couple blocks away that sell roasted chickens and others that have home made ice cream. Other shops and markets that are a little further away have even better bargains, such as Tuesday Market where we bought a kilo (2.2 lbs.) of magnificent strawberries for $1.00! Also, Miriam is a wonderful cook and we really enjoyed her breakfasts.
There is a large and comfortable sofa in the living room where we spent several evenings enjoying movies from the owner’s extensive collection of DVDs. There is a surround sound system that really works, perhaps due to the large volume of space in the living room. Dominos Pizza also delivers if you want to become a true American couch potato and have a “Movie Night”.
The bedrooms are large and airy with beautiful Tibetan silks. The beds are extremely comfortable with good mattresses and those carved headboards are magnificent! There is good closet space to tuck away those big suitcases as well as hang your clothes. We set up the laptop in the sunroom off the Master bedroom on the second floor and the wireless DSL connection was seamless.
We just can’t say enough good about Casa Christina. We have been to San Miguel many times over the past 22 years and this was our best vacation ever! We would definitely stay here again and we thank the owners for providing such a beautiful and gracious home.
First of all, San Miquel is a stunning city and an excellent place to spend at least a week. Tough walking for the elderly, but so, so interesting.
Casa Christina is lovely. The rooms are all very comfortable, the ambience of the home is like no place I have ever stayed, the rooftop veranda wonderful for morning coffee and afternoon cocktails. Maria is a sweetheart. The objects d'arte and the paintings are worth the visit.
Our only problem, was that my husband got up to get a drink of water in the night, missed the stairs that divide the office from the bedroom, and fell headfirst into a very large and heavy dresser. We had enough injuries from that situation to warrant leaving 5 days early. The fault was entirely ours--nothing at all wrong with the house. He could have turned on the lights, but he didn't want to disturb my sleep.
Word to the wise: use lights; watch your step.
We had planned to stay through Easter, which we had done one other time. We were sorry to miss all the traditional festivities that go on in San Miquel during that time.
I recommend this home highly. It is in a great part of town right across from a beautiful church and within a 10-15 minute walk to the center of town.
Very spacious, lovely courtyards, nice antiques and artwork, good location, the house is quite delightful. We loved Maria, the house maid, who made our stay quite pleasant. She prepared good breakfasts and gave us a taste of authentic Mexican specialties. She always wants to please. The house has also a good choice of games and music. The only negative comments: the lighting in the dining room could be improved and a new deck of cards would be usefull. :-)
We've stayed in other rental homes in SMA before. This was our first time at Casa Christina. The home itself is beautiful. However, there are several furnishings and other things that are in desperate need of repair or replacement. Maria, the housekeeper, is great. Dominica was wonderful in showing us the home upon our late night arrival. The neighborhood is safe and has some wonderful shops nearby. There's also a yoga studio and gym around the corner. It's within 20 minutes walking distance from the cathedral and cabs hang around half a block down the street by the church.
We had a great stay at both of your properties. The ambiance was charming, the location was very convenient to good restaurants, the health food store and the Sat organic market as well as many crafts shops. The facilitators were very nice. The online map could be improved and it would be helpful to have a good map at the residence as streets are not in an orderly grid pattern as your map indicates. Thank you for your hospitality!
Casa Christina está localizado no distrito de San Antonio da cidade, em um bairro amigável convenientemente localizado a apenas 5 minutos do mundialmente famoso Instituto (ver abaixo) e apenas 10-15 minutos a pé do centro da cidade. Ao contrário de muitas áreas da cidade, não é uma subida íngreme de San Antonio para o centro. Tudo o que você precisa está disponível aqui mesmo no bairro. Nos degraus da Igreja de Santo Antônio é uma pequena mercearia. Certifique-se de passar algum tempo na Igreja de Santo Antônio Plaza para obter a sensação deste espaço único. Ancha San Antonio (a rua principal 2 minutos leste da Casa) tem uma infinidade de lojas com tudo de sorveterias, às farmácias, para locadoras de vídeo, para restaurantes.
