Highs & Lows

  • The highlight of our stay was the tour of the mountain on horseback. The neighbor, Concho, a local cattle herder, arrived at our doorstep and guided us up the peaks of Los Picachos, high above San Miguel de Allende.

  • The lack of vehicle access and sparse population in the mountains have preserved an exceptional biodiversity including hawks, foxes, white-tailed deer and mountain lions. Not to mention the herds of domestic goat and cattle that graze the mountainside right up against the property.

  • The orientation of the house is entirely focused on the wild mountainside, its perch isolated and nestled in undisturbed nature. Whether your visit be in the winter, summer, or rain — the environment and its surroundings are robust and full of life.

  • Be prepared to shed a tear upon your departure.
