About Dave A Kartz
Dave and Barbara have lived in San Miguel de Allende since April 2013. After living many years in Seattle, we decided to get out of the rain and make a new start in Mexico. Dave loves to play golf and is member of the Ventanas Golf Club, located about 10 minutes from the VRBO rental. Barbara is an equestrian, and rides her mare Girasol at The Ranch, a boarding facility next door to their home in La Cieneguita. Both are retired and have never regretted their decision to emigrate to Mexico.
Dave A Kartz purchased this House in 2019
Why Dave A Kartz chose Atotonilco
The city of San Miguel de Allende is becoming increasingly crowded and congested due to its international popularity. More and more people are searching for vacation rentals that are outside of the city, but within easy access. This property is only a ten minute drive from the north end of San Miguel. One can drive in, park , and then walk into El Centro and enjoy the wonders of the city, then go back to our quiet property. More and more restaurants are popping up on the outskirts of town, making it unnecessary to drive all the way to San Miguel to have wonderful food.
What makes this House unique
Walking distance to the Hot Springs, the village of Atontonilco, highly rated Trip Adivsor restaurants, and yet only a short drive to San Miguel de Allende.
100% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.
We are in the heart of the hot springs area in the Bajio. There are 3 hot springs open to the public, one within walking distance, and 2 very close by. Just around the corner from the house is La Galleria, an exceptional gallery of Mexican folk art, which is open to the public by appointment. Just steps from La Galleria is the Nirvana Restaurant which has lovely grounds. The village of Atontonilco is very interesting and is a mecca for Mexicans visiting the area. The old church, El Sanctuario has been called the Sistene Chapel of the Americas and does have amazing ceilings. The village itself has lots of open air stands for souvenirs, art work, handicrafts, and lots of delicious food.
San Miguel is a ten minute drive away, and offers everything you can imagine. We have lived here for over six years, and you can get practically anything you want in San Miguel de Allende. There are lots and lots of restaurants, anything from International fare to street food. The city is amazing. These days it is very crowded on weekends with visitors from all over Mexico and other parts of the world.
Dolores Hidalgo is a city worth visiting and only 30 minutes from the house. It is truly a Mexican city, with a lot of charm. They are famed for their Talavera ceramics. El Centro, with its jardin, is charming and there are 2 restaurants, El Fruty and Da Monica are great.
I can arrange horsebacking riding, both trails rides or lessons.
