we enjoyed our stay but it was very cold and we weren't prepared that houses in San Miquel don't have any heat. Folks where wool hats and down in the house. We were given a space heater and there was a small fire place in the entryway by the shared bathroom.
It was a bit of a walk to where ever we went on very uneven payment so need very good shoes.
So if you are better prepared than we were you will have an even better time.
Coming back to San Miguel de Allende from France, we were looking for a location walking distance from the center, yet not noisy. And we were so happy to find this lovely house, nested in a quiet little street, with flowers overflowing in the garden and a nice little fountain.
The room was perfect for us with its private balcony and a lovely bathroom. We felt very much at home and private, yet when needed, Jean-Paul and Shannon, the owners, went out of their way to help us visit this charming colonial town, from market to restaurants, parks to galleries, not to mention churches !
We loved it so much that when we came back after a trip in the Sierra Gorda we decided to stay with them again.
When we visit San Miguel next time, for sure we will stay there, hoping it will be available.

I spent hours looking for the right combination of easy walking distance to town and quiet, pleasant neighborhood and was pleased that Jean Paul and Shannon's place was perfect. You'll hear very brief bursts of barking, crowing or fireworks, less than a minute, but it's way better than the incessant church bells and traffic noise near the Parroquia. The rooms are charming and comfortable, and filtered water and heat are provided, which can not be assumed at all rentals. Jean Paul and Shannon are gracious and generous hosts and they really enhanced our visit to San Miguel de Allende, If we are lucky enough to return, we won't consider staying anywhere else.
