• Why San Miguel de Allende?

If you are thinking of living in Mexico, then San Miguel de Allende is the place to be! 

Located in the high desserts of Central Mexico, San Miguel, with its stunning architecture, is considered by all to be the Colonial Jewel of Mexico. Among the many benefits of living in San Miguel are:

  • A marvelous, sunny year-round climate,
  • A large and vibrant English-speaking community,
  • More cultural activities than you could ever attend, and
  • An environment in which you can feel safe and secure.

In short, there is no better place to live than San Miguel.  And once you’ve decided on San Miguel, your next decision is easy!

• Why ?

The homes of are located in the heart of San Miguel on one of the city’s most lively and interesting avenues. There is plenty of hustle and bustle on the street, but once you pass through ’s front gates, you enter a different world - a world of tranquility and seclusion, a world of beautiful homes nestled among soothing fountains, majestic arches and flowering bougainvilleas, a world that is so very rare in San Miguel!

Due to San Miguel’s extremely tight housing market, there are virtually no centrally located homes left that are attractively finished and below the $600,000-$2,000,000 price range. Plus, most of these high-priced homes would still require significant upgrades to be put in ‘move-in’ condition. Nor is building your own home a viable alternative, due to the high cost of centrally located lots and the substantial time commitment required to oversee construction and deal with the inevitable cost overruns and time delays.
