PROPERTY FEATURES

The Premises 

The one-time home of fashion photographer Deborah Turbeville, Casa No Name is steeped in artistry and tinged with the romance of a fairytale. Hidden from public eyes for the best part of 300 years, this 18th-century mansion stands in San Miguel de Allende’s centro histórico, originally belonging to the city’s resident bishop. The time-worn stone, original fireplaces and cobbled courtyard ensure the house still exudes colonial charm, but worldly additions like Indian archways and a Tibetan fountain have added something altogether more exotic, combining with the lush greenery to create the impression of a secret garden. Each of the six rooms is furnished with a globetrotting selection of artwork and antiques, and the roof now sports an enticing terrace with a cocktail bar, spa tent and a hot tub, all overlooking the surrounding rooftops.

SPA

The rustic spa tent is on the roof terrace, and can be shielded from view with thick white drapes. Before your treatment, slip into a placid state on the daybed outside, which is strewn with patterned cushions and surrounded by greenery, including a planter of fragrant lavender. For your treatment, try the signature herbal aromatic massage, where the therapist places sachets of herbs at key points around the body, applying pressure to relax the muscles. You can also book private yoga classes with a highly regarded teacher.

POOL

There’s a hot tub on the roof terrace that's fed by a steady cascade of water coming from a long, thin cut in the wall. The bar is just a few steps away, making this a choice spot for sipping gin cocktails at sundown.

ALSO

The main courtyard and the ground floor rooms are wheelchair accessible, but the rooms aren’t adapted in any way.
The stone walls in the courtyard are covered by an original mural by Antonio Martínez de Pocasangre, an 18th-century artist known for his biblical scenes.

Rooms 

Each room is different, and all have their own quirks and charms. Deborah’s Suite was the artist’s bedroom, and has a wooden floor, stone fireplace and and the original bed frame, which bears a gilded inscription. Aura, the owner’s suite, is another favourite among guests. It’s on the top floor, and has a private terrace overlooking the stone courtyard and lush gardens.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

There’s no restaurant per se, but daily breakfast and a Sunday brunch are served in the courtyard, which is shaded by trees and soundtracked by splashing water from the stone fountain. Snacks and small plates are available at Bar Olivia throughout the day.

Liquid Bliss 

The bar is on the roof terrace, and is at the heart of the hotel’s social scene. It’s the most modern space in the hotel, but the furnishings are made from earthy materials like polished concrete, auburn wood and blackened steel, sitting easily with historic features like the ornate Indian archways, which were originally part of a palace. During the heat of the day, you can order your cocktail to the hot tub; after dark, a fire pit keeps things cosy and bathes the terrace in warm, flickering lig

Experience the Extraordinary 

The old-world romance of the courtyard and the exoticism of the roof terrace make the casa an inherently pleasing place to while away your time. You may have the city’s best sights, restaurants and bars within easy walking distance, but it’s all too easy to spend a day moving from the spa hut to the library to the roof, catching the best of the afternoon sun from the hot tub. If, on the other hand, you’re in the mood for exploring, the culture-rich city centre lies just beyond the casa’s time-worn walls. In the 20th century, a steady influx of artists and artisans transformed what was once an unassuming town into a cosmopolitan community that prizes craftsmanship and artistry. This is still reflected in San Miguel’s thriving markets, where traders peddle everything from hand-painted porcelain to jade-studded bracelets. One of the best places for Mexican crafts is the Mercado de Artesanias, a covered market that’s open daily and filled with stalls piled high with quality goods. On Saturdays, don’t miss the Tianguis Organico in the Instituto Allende art school, selling organic products like cakes, chocolate, cheese and hot-off-the-grill items like tacos and quesadillas. Another hotspot for local creatives is Dôce 18 Concept House, a handsome colonial building that’s become a destination for local design, fashion and food, complete with a restaurant, coffee shop and library selling art, photography and fashion titles. If you still haven’t had your fill, pay a visit to Fabrica la Aurora, an old textile mill now filled with cafes, art shops and galleries. For national history and fine drinking rolled into one, take a tour of La Casa Dragones, a famous cavalry stables turned small batch tequila producer. Dating back to 1671, the stables were once home to the horses of the Dragones of San Miguel, an elite cavalry regiment enshrined in history thanks to their important role in Mexico’s independence campaign. If this will be your first visit to the city, it’s worth braving the crowds to see inside the Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel, the parish church that soars over the skyline like a pink wedding cake.

Transportation 

Casa No Name is in San Miguel de Allende’s centro histórico, known for its baroque architecture and flourishing arts scene.

Planes 

The best place to touch down is Queretaro Airport, an hour’s drive from the hotel. It can be reached directly from Mexico City and select US airports, including Dallas/Fort Worth, Atlanta and Chicago Midway.

Automobiles 

With the hotel in the heart of the city centre, you won’t be needing a car unless you want to explore the surrounding countryside. You’ll be able to walk to most of the sights and taxis are cheap and plentiful. If you do want to hire, the Smith24 team can arrange it.
