Built by my great-grandfather in 1885, the house keeps the northern village style. It is quiet and you breathe a charming atmosphere. Surrounded by nature, the garden, the roman pool and the grill makes the perfect place for a relaxing and calm retreat or to spend a nice time with family or friends. A stream runs alongside the garden of the property, which gives an extra dose of green, birds, fireflies, fresh air and privacy. The neighborhood is safe and and quiet...small town.
Santiago is a ¨Pueblo Mágico¨ located 30 minutes driving form Monterrey. The house is 5 minutes driving from Santiago downtown. In ¨La Villa de Santiago¨ you can enjoy the beautiful square, the Church, great variety of restaurants with regional cuisine, Italian, Argentinian, Mexican, handcrafts shops, art galleries, cozy cafés and bistros in beautiful gardens as well as spectacular Views of La Boca lake, the famous skies of Santiago and its mountains; The Cola de Caballo waterfall, beautiful rivers (underground also), and walking trails through the mountains are perfect for hiking, extreme adventure and eco-tourism. The village local transport stops at door and the bus to Monterrey at 300 mts, on the highway.
You´ll have access to the whole house and garden;you can use all what is in there but the attic (sometimes I work and stay there; for I´ll pass through the garden to get in.)
Please feel at home, and treat it as your own.
If you stay for longer than 3 days, me, or someone of trust will be around taking care of the garden every 3 days.
Interaction with guests
I will be more than pleased to help you in anything regarding to your stay, comfort, or advising about places to visit, and perhaps to hang out, cook and tell you the stroy of the house or town if you like and I have some time.
Other things to note
A cat lives in the attic and around the garden...Douglass, is shy, so he may hide and not bother at all.
