Hablamos inglés y español! Why You'll Love Your Apartment You've no doubt seen the colorful houses dotting the hills of this city, and you'll appreciate that our apartments are located at the bottom of the hill. You can still enjoy views of the city without huffing and puffing your way home every evening. The apartment is located in down town Guanajuato on the Paseo de la Presa de la Olla. The Presa de la Olla neighborhood is very nice and an upcoming/trendy destination. It is way calmer than the city center yet well communicated to the airport and the main city attractions. Paseo de la Presa is lined with beautiful old villas from the 19th century Mexican built by the wealthy families of the time, buildings that are now part of the heritage of the State Government, including the Palacio del Gobierno. The area is very safe and known for its tranquil atmosphere and dedication to Guanajuato’s historical heritage. Just around the corner from the apartment you will find the cultural center, Casa de la Presa, in a beautiful remodeled old art nouveau villa, where you can enjoy art exhibitions, reasonably priced Spa services, yoga, art and meditation classes. Other conveniences include being just a 5-minute walk to parks and La Presa dam, where families congregate on weekends to enjoy the outdoor restaurants and paddle boats. Every morning you can enjoy the best coffee in town just across the street in Café Tal and you buy freshly squeezed orange juice at the corner tienda and enjoy it on your private garden as you listen to the birds sing. If you like to hike, you can walk directly up the street to la Panoramica, which circles the city and then hike the hills just above, including the cross at the top of La Bufa. From there, you'll have a breathtaking view of the city and the entire valley. You'll appreciate the close proximity of our apartments to the historic center during the day but the quiet solitude of being away from the hectic and noisy streets as you drift off to sleep at night. Amenities You'll enjoy fast WiFi in every apartment along with a desk or workspace for your convenience (though we wouldn't blame you for choosing to surf the Internet on your private garden instead). Two of our apartments have kitchenettes - the other units have full kitchens. All are fully equipped and are perfect for preparing your morning coffee and enjoying the fresh foods available at Guanajuato's markets. Weekly [or more frequent] housekeeping services can be arranged for an extra cost. Getting Around From your apartment it is a leisurely, 15 minutes stroll to -or- from Jardin de la union in the very heart of Historic Guanajuato and along the way you'll be tempted by vendors offering fresh delicious street food, homemade ice cream and the vibrant Embajadoras market. Prefer to ride not walk? Then hop on one of the frequent buses that stop a minute from our main gate. All buses from La Presa de la Olla head through el Centro Histórico and the fare is only 5 pesos. Taxis: The fare to most anywhere in town is only 35 pesos. The intercity bus terminal [central camionera] is at the edge of town, a quick cab ride from your apartment and the place to begin side trips to surrounding sites - explore the arts and shopping in San Miguel de Allende, find the perfect pair or pairs shoes and other leather goods in León, or take in the historic sites in nearby Dolores Hidalgo. Extras Villa Macondo´s owners, Christel and José Manuel are a Danish-Mexican couple and have a great deal of knowledge about the area. You'll find out where to go, what to do, and what not to miss while you're here. Visitors from all over the world come to the cultural city of Guanajuato, Mexico, so you never know what kind of fascinating people you'll meet! More

Very clean, comfortable casita with nice private garden patio which extended living space nicely. Close to bus/taxi service. Some barking dog noise, but had a very helpful, English speaking landlady in Christel. We look forward to revisiting in the future!
