Historic Recreo street itself it is one of the reasons San Miguel was named a UNESCO World Heritage City for its remarkable 16th century architecture blending Spanish colonial and neoclassical styles in homes, buildings and public places. Casa Recreo is a reflection of that perfection in its own elegance of Spanish and Moorish influenced colonial authenticity. It is located in the most desired three block radius of La Parroquia, the town’s iconic 17th century church, famous for its neo-gothic design in pink-hued stone, anchoring the lively town square.
A sense of belonging to the city and its rich history permeates Casa Recreo, in part because of the magnificent views starting at ground floor ‘s garden and pool, from second floor bedrooms to the third floor’s outdoor living area, to the 4th floor’s ‘crow’s nest’ lookout patio with view to the Parroquia – each presenting exciting scenes of city-scape colonial architecture to the vast expanse of mountain vistas.
Entering Casa Recreo experience the tranquility of this six-bedroom home as it opens into a spacious columned portico with a two-story sky-light garden in the tradition of Mediterranean homes bringing the outdoors in. The large, tiled kitchen opens onto this portico, as well the intimate dining room and elegant front room. High beamed ceilings and woven woodwork represent refined Spanish style, where a Moorish-inspired fireplace anchors the large front room, flanked by French doors leading to the garden with swimming pool and covered outdoor dining area.

Four bedrooms, each unique in personality grace this level, including the master bedroom with sitting area, fireplace and balconies with views across the town. Proceeding to the third floor find a covered dining area with Bar-B-Que, patio garden with fountain, amazing town and country views as well as two bedrooms, one with view patio and fireplace. The fourth story patio provides a view to tomorrow and beyond where sunrises, sunsets and starry nights beckon.
