Promising a sunny, snow-free getaway, Mexico’s San Miguel de Allende is always a great destination choice. Now from both the main property and the central city plaza.
The luxurious three-bedroom villa features a fully renovated kitchen and 3.5 bathrooms. Reflecting classic colonial style and spaciously proportioned and designed to incorporate the best of indoor-outdoor design, the new villa and Casa Delphine’s main property were designed by owner and jewelry designer Amanda Keidan.
A bóveda hallway leads to a central outdoor courtyard. Each of the two ground-floor bedrooms features an ensuite bathroom and king bed. The ground floor layout includes the kitchen and a large living and dining area with a fireplace and office nook. An entertainment space on the second floor is fitted with a fountain, outdoor fireplace and built-in seating areas.
Above the second floor, the private main bedroom features French doors overlooking the grounds, a fireplace and high-beamed ceilings. The enormous glass windows in the bathroom overlook trees, creating the sense of being surrounded by a lush forest. A dramatic covered terrace offers lovely views of the town’s spired churches and rooftops.
Casa Delphine offers the option of scheduling amenities such as an in-house chef, luxurious massages and private mezcal tastings. Villa guests can also enjoy Casa Delphine activities such as sabbaticals, with the opportunity to learn skills including ceramics, textile dying, huichol beading, painting, cooking and Spanish language classes.
The concierge team can arrange adventure outings, local experiences, horseback rides, visits to local wineries, hot springs soaks, jazz nights at the Instituto, or private astrology and tarot card readings. There’s a minimum three-night stay at the property.
