The Retreat is minutes from San Miguel de Allende along the Ruta de Vino where vineyards, lavender fields and olive groves thrive in one of the region’s most affluent areas. The UNESCO World Heritage City is universally regarded as one of the prettiest towns in Mexico and internationally recognized for its lively cosmopolitan pulse. Sophisticated residents and travelers from around the globe are drawn to San Miguel’s fine Spanish Colonial architecture, high-level arts and cultural programs and cutting edge culinary scene. Of equal importance is the unmatched, natural beauty of the Altiplano– the high plains of Central Mexico– with extraordinary geographic features, botanical wonders, vibrant indigenous culture, and life lived much as it has always been for centuries.
Welcome to The Retreat. The secure, spa-like family compound on seven hectares with dynamically contoured and landscaped grounds is set high on a ridge with commanding views of the Rio Laja Valley. Four guest cottages, a central lodge with a professional kitchen, main residence, and spa facilities are artfully ensconced within the 16th Century settlement of Marroquín along a legendary silver route. The understated style of sophisticated construction with natural materials nestled amid mature botanical gardens conveys a sense of elegant rustication. A canopy of ancient Mezquite trees and other regional cultivars cast gentle shade along meandering paths and private areas conducive to quiet reflection. A wet sauna, jet-pool, therapeutic rooms, yoga pavilion with spectacular views, and variety of additional outbuildings with ample storage complete this self-sufficient country retreat and family compound with options for expansion.
A fabled well at the entrance to the property suggests a continuous source of renewal and retreat with immediate access to the energetic attractions of world renowned San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
