San Miguel de Allende | Old + New
When we think of Mexico we often think of sandy beaches and all inclusive resorts. Don’t be fooled those things are very important. However, there is so much to Mexico. We love San Miguel de Allende with its old + new approach.
Where to stay: With plenty of options from Hotels to Airbnb, you just cannot go wrong. Rosewood San Miguel de Allende is one of those breathtaking properties that give you ultimate luxe experiences. For a hidden away cobble-stoned street boutique location try L’Otel Hotel. La Morada Hotel in the main square, El Jardin gives you the most budget friendly option. Lastly, we cannot forget Belmond Casa de Sierra Nevada –ah takes our breath away.
Cuisine: As the trend continues, you will be happy to learn that farm-to-table offerings are still available in San Miguel. I think the best part of Mexico is the fresh food at reasonable pricing. Our best places recos? Try Moxi Restaurant for an amazing Brunch; for panaramic views look to La Posadita; El Pegaso is a fav amongst ex-pats; and for country view Casa de Aves, a hotel/restaurant that gives you best of both worlds and MEAT.
ARTworld: The first destination should be Fabrica La Aurora. This gallery houses art studios for the art community including home furniture, jewelry and antiques. For B+B and art gallery combined, we recommend El Zaguan.
We leave to Mexico today. Whew escape from the minus degree weather couldn’t come soon enough! See you on the other side
Travel to Provence France region and make sure to check out Goult and Gordes. Goult is a hilltop village toward the Luberon Mountains. We fell in love with this quaint B+B. Gordes only 2.5 miles away from Goult. Every Tuesday, Gordes Market opens and give you an opportunity to buy linens, lavender, soaps, cheese and wine. We are hungry already. We pick Domaine de Fontenille for a luxury stay.
We had loads of fun in Costa Rica! Head straight to Tabacon Thermal Grand Spa and you will be instantly relaxed. Hiking to Rio Celeste was well worth it and with the photo above you can see why. It is more incredible close up.
A beautiful place to spend your time is at the Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues. Our time spent with dear friends in Geneva will be short but filled with quality. We are so excited to spend time with our dear loved ones. Top 10 things to do in Geneva here.
