Huge green and wooded area in San Miguel de Allende's historic downtown. Large house built with local materials, panoramic views and an interesting library. We have our own organic orchard and a solar-warmed swimming pool
This gorgeous house, located in San Miguel de Allende's historical downtown, covers an “apple’s heart", name given to gardens and groves’ area that old mansions had in behind their facades, green and tree-filled zones in every block of the historical city. The temperate climate and plentiful water from fountains and springs gave life to these traditional garden courtyards, replete with fruit trees, flowers, and ornamental, aromatic and healing plants. These backyards formed a recreational space for the inhabitants, and also an ideal niche for a variety of birds.
There are few remaining apple hearts in San Miguel's downtown. Posada Corazón has made efforts to preserve it as a garden and orchard, providing daily with organic crops as well as herbs and flowers for non-profit local activities.
The house is a spacious construction typical of Mexican architecture of the 1960s, a balance of beauty and simplicity, designed by Leonardo de la Canal. Up to date the house keeps its original style and feeling of a family home. It also contains an outstanding collection of books, mostly on Mexican and international art, as well as a set of sculptures which add to the beauty of the gardens.
It has 5 different rooms for rent.
Esta bella casa, ubicada en el centro histórico de San Miguel de Allende, comprende un “corazón de manzana”. Nombre que se daba al área de jardines y huertos que tenían las casas principales en la parte trasera, conformando zonas verdes y arboladas en cada bloque de la ciudad. El clima templado y el agua abundante de fuentes y manantiales daban vida a estos huertos tradicionales, pródigos en árboles frutales, flores, plantas ornamentales, aromáticas y curativas. Los huertos traseros formaban un espacio recreativo para sus habitantes, además de ser un nicho ideal para una variedad de aves.
Son pocos ya los corazones de manzana que han sobrevivido en el centro histórico de San Miguel. Posada Corazón ha procurado preservarlo como jardín y como huerto, produciendo en forma permanente alimentos orgánicos, hierbas y flores para proyectos no lucrativos locales.
La casa que ocupa la Posada es una amplia construcción representativa de la arquitectura mexicana de los años 60 del siglo pasado, equilibrio de belleza y sencillez proyectada por el arquitecto Leonardo de la Canal. Hasta la fecha, la casa mantiene su estilo original y un ambiente familiar. Alberga una interesante colección de libros, sobre todo de arte mexicano y universal, y un conjunto de esculturas complementa la belleza de los jardines.
Cuenta con 5 diferentes habitaciones en renta.

The natural setting is lush and lovely; the house is architecturally impressive. The staff is wonderful, very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious and includes quite an impressive menu. However, I do think the daily fee of $200.00 U.S. dollars is too high for the amenities of the room and bath. The room was small and did not have enough light for me. As much as I liked the resident animals (3 dogs and 2 cats), once at 4 am when a guest left, the dogs barked very loudly. Then the next night when a guest arrived at 10 pm the dogs once again barked too long. So a quiet night depends on no one arriving or leaving to disturb the dogs. Diana was most gracious and helpful. The ease of walking to the Jardin is a definite plus.
