Casa Etérea is a luxurious isolated hideaway for two, built on the slopes of an extinct volcano, 25-mins from the town center of San Miguel de Allende. Designed as a liveable installation art piece, the mirrored house blurs the boundaries between the wild and the structured. We invite you to feel the stillness of being at one with nature in this one-of-a-kind designer residence.

The space
The 75sqm “box-dwelling” is a beautiful and intimate space, that was designed without partition walls – making the entire house one large room. From the central living space and bedroom, floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors frame vistas of towering cliffs, while opening to connect with a decked patio area and solar-heated pool surrounded by olive and pomegranate trees. The house also features an exposed glass shower with views to a staggering ravine, and an intimate kitchen equipped with ammenities for light cooking. Remote-controlled outdoor PVC shutters were added to provide security and privacy.



To achieve a complete integration with the environment, the house runs on solar energy, collected rainwater, and uses a UV coating on the mirror making it visible to birds while remaining reflective to the human eye.

Guest access
The house is located on a magnificently beautiful property, and guests can enjoy large, open outdoor spaces. Although the house looks isolated in photographs - you will not be alone on the mountain. There are 6 other family homes nearby, and our friendly neighbours from our close-knit international community will all be looking out for you.

Other things to note
1) Unfortunately, we do not allow pets, in order to protect our designer furniture.

2) Our dedicated bilingual house manager, Israel, will be present during check-in & check-out. He will also be contactable via phone for a variety of free and paid concierge services.

3) The rocky mountain road leading to the house is ONLY accessible via SUV or 4x4 vehicles. We offer all guests a FREE two-way shuttle service from San Miguel to Casa Eterea. Guests who want to visit San Miguel during their stay can request for a driver – at additional cost. We require 24hr notice for this service.

4) A supermarket, hospital and cinema is a 10min drive from the house. San Miguel Centro is only 20 minutes away. However, NO restaurants or amenities are accessible by foot. During our pick-up service, our house manager can make a supermarket stop, for guests to buy groceries and alcohol. Food can also be delivered during your stay - at additional cost.

5) Only 2 guests (from the original reservation) are allowed on the property.

6) We provide kitchen essentials like drinking water, tea, coffee, cooking oil and seasonings. A full sized refrigerator is available to store your groceries.

7) The mountain is home to an exceptional biodiversity including hawks, foxes, white-tailed deer and mountain lions. Guests can book horse-riding tours, ATV tours and guided hikes and 100% of the cost of these tours are earned directly by the local community. All tours must be booked with with 48hr notice, and are subject to availability.

8) The mountain has a semi-arid desert climate. Hot sun during the day, and cold weather at night. Especially during the winter months (Nov - Jan) nighttime temperatures can be very cold, and warm jackets are essential.
