For once in your life you can safely live on the edge......Which is basically the way it is here in Guanajuato. Our city is like a bowl and we live on the edge of the bowl. You'll be surrounded with breath taking views of the mountains on one side and a brightly colored Panorama of the city on the other . WARNING!.... We take NO responsibility if you decide to move here. We welcome you to our beautiful light filled apartment nestled at the foot of the majestic Mount Bufa natural preserve. It has everything you need for a long comfortable stay Free parking right at your door with open access laundry facilities and your own secured private entrances. The habitat is classic colonial style....... There are hand made tiles throughout, , private bathroom with individual shower covered in handmade talavera tile, and very hot water. It is fully furnished with beautiful artisan hand carved furniture and a strong Fibre-Optic Wi-Fi signal / 20 MG's High speed Internet. It is ideal for single’s who wish to stay and work on long or short term projects. It has a comfortable single size bed, an executive chair, refrigerator, micro-wave and study corner.. Enjoy living in the country while being just minutes away from the center of downtown. . Our place is clean and quiet, and located in one of the safest neighborhoods in town. Speaking of safety, we're ranked among the top 3 safest cities in all of Mexico. ( Our guests have commented feeling safe while walking the streets at night)...The natural wildlife and variety of colorful native birds attract bird watchers. Many are surprised to see at their front doors occasional free range cattle, mules, horses or goats that come from the tops of the mountain to visit. (They love raw vegetables and fruit) You can walk right out your back door and hike up to those impressive rock formations of Mount Bufa & Los Picachos, especially if you love a good place to reflect, study and meditate or even hike, run, or ride a bike , this is the perfect place with mountain trails at every turn . The air up here is clean and unpolluted with plenty of sunshine. Guanajuato also sponsors many sporting events such as car, foot, bike and swimming races, along many other activities that will capture your attention. So you can choose to be rejuvenated and refreshed by enjoying our protected local state parks. Or take a 10-15 minute bus or taxi ride to the center of town for theaters, restaurants, museums, nightclubs, coffee houses and the list goes on and on. There is literally a revolving calendar of live music, concerts , theater performances. along with many street artists , mimes and musicians who entertain passer's by both day and night... Especially during the month of October when we celebrate our International Cervantino Festival. It's the Mardi Gras of Mexico...(Very Exciting) With hosts from all around the world, drawing travelers and curiosity seekers . Yes Guanajuato has been considered an international treasure. It is a UNESCO city that is under constant restoration and preservation. There's only two stop lights in the whole city with cars, people on horseback , festivals and frequent encounters with parades of indigenous Indians in their ancient native costumes that date back to before the days of Cortez and Montezuma. Most of the native people have been here for generations which make them so fascinating to observe and get to know. So if you want a taste of the real Mexico look no further.... W--hich is our greatest complaint........We frequently hear at the end of our guests visits, ' But I don't want to leave'.................., because of this many have stayed and are now our neighbors . So beware!! You may fall in love! During your stay you can arrange for local or more extensive sight seeing tours, hot spring outings, hikes to local forested mountains, fresh water fishing, culinary, art or cultural tours. Many come here to learn to speak Spanish, since we have many total immersion language schools here. Let us know ahead of time. And we'llrec ommend several... If you enjoy the fresh air and sunshine, then take a 20 minute stroll into town passing tranquil streets, ancient plazas, callejons, and outdoor markets, that literally transport you back to the colonial days of Old Mexico. Alfredo's Market, Hamburger stand and groceries are located just a few blocks away with many nearby street side vendors selling the freshest foods at the best prices......and if you like coffee, our next door neighbor is an award winning roaster with a variety of coffees and teas that will hook you at first sip. He personally stands there with a stop watch when it's roasting time. And his famous Beso Negro .... will keep you coming back. . More

About the neighbourhood
We are located on the Presa de la Olla side of the Panoramica. Which is in Colonia Universitario. Take Calle Presa de la Olla to Callejon de San Juan de Dios turn right, go to the top, turn left onto the Panoramica, go 100 yards to a blue house on the corner and turn right up the hill, go to the very top of the hill and make a hard left turn and continue to go up til you reach a stone paved road to the right. My home which is white , orange and blue is located at the top, you can't miss it... Directions are also available in Spanish.................There is plenty of free parking......The bus stop is a 5 minute walk, or a taxi will pick you up right at the front door.
Getting around
. The location of our villas are perched right on the edge of the city with a breathtaking view of the Mount Bufa Preserve on the left and a panoramic view of the most colorfully decorated city in all of Mexico on your right. The nearness of the parks, plazas, reservoirs, coffee shops, gyms, hiking trails, restaurants, museums, night clubs and Bistros are minutes away by foot or even less by Uber, bus or taxi... The city is literally frozen in time . The native people here welcome visitors and are treated with the greatest dignity and respect. You will have to pinch yourself and ask Am I dreaming?..
