Alice's Palace, Penthouse in San Miguel de Allende

Condo/Apartment -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4

The kitchen is fully equipped with a stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, dishes, pots and pans, and drinking water fo...

Christine corresponds on line with our guest before, during and sometimes after their trips. We tend to form lasting bonds with our visitors and have many repeat guests. We are more than happy to suggest venues like the nearby pyramid tour, healing hot springs, and to share our favorite restaurants! Just ask Christine here and or ask me, Alice, in person. I love hosting and meeting interesting people from all over the world. If you are reading this, I hope to meet you and to host you and your family or friends in the near future. I'm pretty positive that you'll enjoy your stay very much at Alice's Palace in San Miguel de Allende, MX!
