Overview
Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Mineral de Pozos, Central Mexico and Gulf Coast
Built as a forge in the 1970's the original building was converted to an airy spacious home with large windows bringing in the beauty of the mature garden. Minutes from town by bus or taxi, or a couple of miles walk along the river, the house is the perfect combination of tranquility and access to the city of Guanajuato. Ideal for those already familiar with Guanajuato or who have time to relax and enjoy the City and its environs.
Located along the Rio Guanajuato, where traditionally the silver processing haciendas were, the house is on an unusually large lot. Hence our beautiful garden. The house is very welcoming and very unique due to its two enormous boveda ceilings. Each one 25 feet across! Everywhere you look there is the outside coming in due to the massive windows. Having said that the house is very private from the road, bein...

About the neighbourhood
Located a few miles from Guanajuato Centro, Marfil sits along the Rio Guanajuato in an area of old haciendas. Our neighbor, the Club Campestre Nepomuceno (country club) is built in the ruins of one of these. The area was devastated in the great flood of 1905 and was bought and renovated by the Italian architect Giorgio Beloli. Many of the houses in this area were built by him and many contain windows created at our house when it was a forge.
By now you've probably read plenty about the great city of Guanajuato, The vibrancy and culture of the city is what keeps bringing us back. If you're visiting the city for only a couple of days and want to be part of the bustle and noise, our house is probably not for you, but if you're coming to enjoy the city for a little longer you&#39...
