Belmond Casa de Sierra Nevada
San Miguel de Allende sits at an altitude of 6,435 feet above sea level. Belmond Casa de Sierra Nevada is located in Central Mexico it is easily reached from Mexico City, 171 miles away, or the nearby León Airport which is 1 hour and 30 minutes from the hotel or Queretaro Airport just 1 hour from the hotel. A few blocks from the cathedral and main city square, the boutique hotel of Casa de Sierra Nevada is a mixture of 16th to 18th century Spanish colonial buildings.
The Casa de Sierra Nevada has 15 Deluxe and Executive rooms, distributed among four mansions and the Casa del Parque, a few minutes walk away. The design of the accommodations follows the original architecture and so no two rooms are identical in size and amenities. Each of the rooms and suites has its own individual décor but they all celebrate the spirit of San Miguel. They are characterized by the furnishings, art and antiques, exquisite fabrics, and richly colored Talavera-tiled bathrooms that add a touch of charm. Many rooms have working fireplaces, others boast private terraces with outstanding views of San Miguel and some have both fireplace and terrace. Some of the rooms face onto the courtyards and gardens, while others have balconies and beautiful views of the city.
The Casa de Sierra Nevada's restaurants are at the top of hotel dining establishments in Mexico, and the culinary choices on offer are as exceptional as the hotel itself. The Casa del Parque offers a bar where the boleros of a local trio provide the perfect backdrop to indulge in a refreshing cocktail or aperitif before dinner. The Blue Bar extends on to the patio where you can sip your drink of choice whilst soaking up the atmosphere of the town bustling along in front of you.
The rich history and cultural wealth of San Miguel and the surrounding areas can be experienced in many ways. On any given day, you can visit ranches, thermal baths, golf courses and numerous historic sites. Those with a green thumb can stroll through Juarez Park, the Orchid Garden or the Jardín Botánico, home to hundreds of species of succulents and cacti. Art enthusiasts might opt for a tour of galleries or spend the afternoon at the Fábrica La Aurora, an old textile mill that now houses artist studios. For the culinary aficionado, no trip would be complete without a stop at the market to buy chilis, cacti and fresh queso followed by a cooking class with a local chef. Then, of course, there are the frequent fiestas, which almost always include fireworks, dances and the infectious exuberance of the San Miguelese.
