Being stuck at home during Corona has us daydreaming about getaways to San Miguel de Allende.
This enchanting city is one of the most magical places in the world. Filled with cobblestone streets and well-preserved buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries, St. Mike is the perfect place to escape from the real world.
While there are plenty of beautiful hotels in San Miguel de Allende, there’s something especially charming about being able to stay in a private hacienda located in the heart of the city.

Available to reserve through Airbnb, Casa Proserpina––which means ‘Spring’ in Latin––has been beautifully renovated with fresh and stylish decor to compliment the original architecture.

The layout of the house is fluid and open, with indoor and outdoor hallways and living spaces that exist among glamorously decorated bedrooms and bathrooms.
The space itself can accommodate up to 10 guests or visitors can book one of the two casitas (“little houses”) for smaller parties.
Rest assured, no matter which room you decide to book, the hacienda has been designed to ensure privacy for all guests.
A Look at the Property
Casita Agua and Casita Fuego are apartment style options located at the entrance of the property and both include a full kitchen, dining area, living room, and rooftop terrace. Each casita can accommodate up to two adults.

Decorated with beautiful gold accents and pops of orange, this beautiful space is both romantic and functional.

The bedroom sits lofted above the living room and kitchen areas––making it feel like a luxury suite instead of a small hotel room.

Decorated in blue hues and with bright light, the name of this house which translates to “little water house” perfectly reflects its style. Not to mention, the contrast of soaring ceilings and low-rise archways is absolutely stunning.
The Casitas Rooftop
Our favorite part about the casitas properties is that they both lead up to a private rooftop terrace, where guests can watch the sunrise or enjoy an evening cocktail during sunset.
The main house, Casa Centro, is located through the main foyer and features it’s own private courtyard, living room, kitchen, dining room, and a gorgeous garden patio. It can comfortably host up to six adults and includes three beds and three baths.

Something to note: Casa Centro’s kitchen is currently undergoing renovations. The owner of the property says they are working hard to maintain original elements of the house in order to keep its traditional Mexican charm. The project is anticipated to be completed by September. Stay tuned for updates!
Private Garden Patio

An enchanting blend of old and new, the back garden patio is the perfect space to snuggle up with a good book or a margarita. Adorned with fresh flowers and lots of greenery, this part of Casa Proserpina still contains many of the original elements of the home such as brick and stone archways.
The property is fully staffed with daily housekeeping, a gardener, on-site house manager, and chef to make your stay absolutely perfect. Guests can also book cooking classes. To make arrangements ask the owner, who makes herself available to contact throughout your stay.
