Built using traditional designs and techniques, Casa Fortuna encompasses over 2000 square feet of stone work, boveda ceilings, a cupula in the centre of the home and Sautillo tiles in a herringbone pattern.

Casa Fortuna is near the end of a quiet dead-end street with very little traffic. The house is surrounded by mission style walls and is fully secure. Taking advantage of the copious sunshine, the house is now powered by solar electricity.

The kitchen comes a blender, food processor, hand mixer, toaster and coffee maker, We have added a Nespresso espresso maker and milk frother to the kitchen. Bring original Nespresso pods with you or purchase Punta del Cielo pods at La Comer supermarket.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This spacious and beautifully decorated home was very clean and comfortable. The rooftop terrace is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the views of the city and surrounding areas. There are small grocers and good restaurants right outside the gates, and the town centre is just a short walk from the house. After each day of activities in San Miguel, we always looked forward to coming back to the comforts of the house. We have already started planning our return trip to Casa Fortuna!

Beautiful traditional Mexican design.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here several times and really enjoy it. The roof deck is superb at anytime of the day and the outdoor front patio is where we eat most of our meals, listening to the water fountain and the birds. The house is very well kept and the bed is really comfortable. There are 2 full, gorgeous bathrooms and a very well,supplied kitchen with a great new gas stove. It is in a private 4 home enclosure and about a 10 minute walk to The Instituto. We have found walking for both shopping and dining pleasant and not too far. Our favourite market Mercado Sano is about a 15minute walk. We hope to return many more times.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four just spent 8 days in the splendid Casa Fortuna in San Miguel de Allende. The pictures are beautiful but the house, in reality, even more so. We've rented many properties around the world and this one is one of the best. The home is beautifully designed and equipped with anything you might need for a comfortable stay. The ultimate experience, however, is to be had on the rooftop where you can sit in one of the loveseats around the fireplace under a portico and sip wine and look at the stars, or have breakfast and sip coffee at the table and greet the morning, or sit in the built-in seating and gaze at the view of the historic center in the distance. We were fortunate to be there for New Year's Eve and were able to watch the fireworks in El Jardin as well as all around the city because of the 360 degree view. I didn't mention the beautiful plants--olive trees, many varieties of cactus, and the beautifully shaped domes and cupolas on the roof--it will be one of my favorite places---in reality and in my mind. I learned, too, that, for me, San Miguel is a place to be experienced, not just visited or toured and Casa Fortuna is the perfect place to anchor the experience. We hope to return!

Our return was just as delightful as the first visit.

  • 5 of 5

Once again, Casa Fortuna did not disappoint. It is such a beautiful 'castle-house'. The design and comfort of the home, the great kitchen for cooking, and the rooftop terrace are hard to beat. Because it's so beautiful and comfortable, we found ourselves alternating meals out, with meals in, just to enjoy being there more. The neighbors, Jane and David, are lovely people and very helpful as well. The hummingbirds greeted us every morning and throughout the day (we kept the feeders full). I loved that there were screens installed in the bedroom double-doors. It was nice to have fresh air without the mosquitoes. Casa Fortuna is heaven on earth!
