Casa de Sierra Nevada
- Like having your own beautiful, luxurious and historic apartment in magical San Miguel de Allende The boutique Casa de Sierra Nevada is a collection of perfectly restored Spanish colonial buildings, located one-and-a-half blocks from the main city square and cathedral of San Miguel de Allende. It is an Orient Express property and boasts the brand's signature amenities and quality service. The 37 guestrooms and suites are spread among six mansions, including Casa del Parque, a 17th-century fort and customs house catering to the silver trade, and Casa Principal, a 16th-century historic landmark that used to be the residence of San Miguel de Allende's archbishop. Each casona, or mansion, features five to seven guest rooms or suites, and is completely unique. Many feature outdoor courtyards with fountains, small gardens and alfresco corridors. Staying here allows you to immerse yourself into the town itself, forgetting that you are actually staying at a hotel. In the centre of each building, there is an inner courtyard where guests sit and enjoy the afternoon sun or the balmy evenings when lighted candles create a romantic ambience.
