Home with a view in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

/ 4,242

We are a family of 3 from Portland, Oregon in the US and we've been traveling since 2014. You can read about our experiences in Southeast Asia, Europe, and Mexico at http://www.meanderingfamily.com/, but we've been horrible about keeping it up since we settled down in Mexico.

We're interested in house swaps that allow us to continue our adventures.

San Miguel de Allende is known for it’s perfect weather and you’ll be able to savor it from the outdoor living spaces. The terrace is on the same level as the main living area and overlooks beautiful homes, flowers, trees, and Centro. Enjoy your morning coffee while you relax in the cool air, taking in the view, which might include a hot air balloon or two. Eat dinner or have a glass of wine in the evenings as you see the city lights twinkle. If fireworks are planned in Centro, you can watch them right from the terrace. The courtyard provides a cool space to relax and read or chat over a cocktail or a cup of tea. Light a fire in the chiminea if the evening is chilly.
