Casita Laurita, built in 2008, is an architectural gem centrally located on one of San Miguel’s best loved streets, Calle Loreto. Open the door to this seemingly small house in the Centro and be amazed at the gorgeous, light, airy, beautifully appointed casita, with terrace gardens, a gourmet kitchen, and plenty of places to lounge. A convenient base to explore all of San Miguel de Allende, you may never want to leave the house.
Built on three stories with terraces on top, the 2-bedroom, 2.5-bath house is an easy and flat walk to the jardin, near language schools, and steps away from the town’s famous artisan market.
The 1000-sq-ft house is Mexican modern style, built around a central courtyard, with clean design and exquisite details. The house has up-to-date amenities (iPod docks, flat-screen TV, wireless) and dreamily comfortable beds. The top terrace has a lovely 360-degree view of San Miguel and its famous Parroquia church. A second patio with lounge chairs is private and cozy, perfect for dreaming, surrounded with lavender, jasmine, and other scented potted plants.
A sunny studio with a 13-foot wooden desk makes Casita Laurita a wonderful retreat for a writer. The gourmet kitchen is a splendid spot for a cook who wants to explore Mexico’s cuisine.
