The Midi or the South, are the different names that the south zone of France receives, a land full of history, architecture, culture and tradition. The midi is distinguished by having a warm and very familiar climate, its excellent environment made it a spectacular place. The music entertains visitors, who enjoy a good drink after a tour of the magical alleys of Guanajuato. Inspired by these distant European lands, it's like "El Midi" combines different flavors, aromas and becomes a delight for our guests. "Welcome to the Midi"
