If I could describe this bed-and-breakfast inn in a single word, I would say: enchanted. I had nurtured many hopeful daydreams before my first visit to Mexico, but my imagination did not prepare me for the beauty of this small hotel on a hilltop overlooking the old town of San Miguel de Allende. The traditional architecture and the surrounding private gardens, pond, verandahs and courtyards are a spark to the spirit. Clearly the owners and staff have an artistic sensibility. Their good taste is reflected in the authentic design of the home ~ and it does feel like a large and welcoming home ~ decorated with original art, sculpture, quality furniture, exquisite tile work and carefully tended gardens. The deep, brilliant colours of Mexico are everywhere here: in the flowers, shade trees and plants, in the visual art, on every wall in the building. Imagine watching a deep, orange sunset -- with margarita in hand -- from a verandah overlooking an exquisite garden and the valley below it. This was a restful place above the crowded streets of the town, a haven of quiet inside a walled tropical green space. I watched hummingbirds in the morning. Our room was large and open with a very comfortable king-sized bed, top quality bed linens and towels, a desk and plenty of storage space. The bathroom was also large with a beautiful tiled shower, all very clean. There were many private 'sitting places' throughout the large building and gardens, and a well-stocked library in one corner. Our friendly and welcoming hosts served us margaritas on the patio in the courtyard in the late afternoon, and a large and delicious breakfast in the morning with fresh ingredients and lots of choice. This hotel would be a good choice for couples who ache for a romantic getaway from a humdrum routine, but families would be comfortable here too. Children would love the pond full of large goldfish and a family of turtles. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough. Any northerner weary of grey winter skies, bitter winds and snowstorms should come here for a tonic of morning sunlight, sunsets and five-star accommodation. Pure comfort. Peaceful relaxed atmosphere. I will be back as soon as I can manage another visit to Mexico. Muchas gracias to my hosts from a grateful Canadian.
