Bienvenidos a Villa el Cerrito!
Welcome to Villa el Cerrito - a lush and stunning paradise with mystical landscapes and gardens; a truly unique and spectacular property conceived by master New England landscape designer Douglas L. MacLise and created by San Miguel's premier landscape architect, Timothy Wachter. Villa el Cerrito is an authentic adobe villa considered the signature work of prominent local architect Roberto Burillo, with the interior designed by the owners and distinguished interior decorator Rachel Horn of Finca Home. As those who have experienced Villa el Cerrito know, it is a special, tranquil, place - a place to bathe in natural beauty and rejuvenate as one enjoys the ultimate in luxurious living.
Villa el Cerrito has been featured in various publications, including Phoenix Home & Garden (Jan. 2005), “Mediterranean Design” by Mary Whitesides (Aug. 2006), and Veranda (Nov. 2007).
Villa el Cerrito is ideally located in San Miguel de Allende, a colonial gem with a population of roughly 140,000. Steeped in history and rich in culture, San Miguel is situated on a hillside facing the Laja River and distant Guanajuato mountains, and is a picturesque town of arched colonial mansions, flower-filled patios, and winding, terraced cobblestone streets. It is also Mexico’s most celebrated artists' community, and has been luring artistically-inclined Mexicans and foreigners for many decades.
The authentic adobe villa was built entirely by hand over a period of five years. Considered the signature work of one of San Miguel’s most prominent local architects, Villa el Cerrito masterfully combines an ancient building style with the modern conveniences and amenities expected by today's most discriminating travelers. The interior of Villa el Cerrito was designed by the owners and one of the town’s most distinguished interior decorators, and every room received the utmost attention to create an elegant, comforting, luxurious, and authentically Mexican environment.
The infinity pool allows you to literally swim among the tree tops while overlooking dramatic gardens, ponds, and fountains, while the spa offers a place for tranquil relaxation and rejuvenation. The adjacent outdoor loggia includes a comfortable seating and sunbathing area, a sound system, and a bar with refrigerator.
