Description of the San Miguel de Allende vacation home rental
Welcome to Hacienda Las Trancas.
This huge 450 yr-old hacienda midway between San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato, is situated outside Dolores Hidalgo in a small, safe, friendly village. Rent a single suite or the entire hacienda. Hacienda las Trancas was recently featured in both Vogue and Food magazines. This property is furnished with colonial antiques and local artisan pieces. It is comfortably elegant, private, fully staffed, and includes cooks, maids, gardeners, stable and pool personnel, and massage therapists.
The hacienda is more than 40,000 square feet under roof, with ten walled-in private acres. There is a pool heated with a dozen solar panels to assure year-round comfort, plus jacuzzi. There are also lovely gardens and enormous porches. The accommodations feature fabulous suite with luxurious bedding with high thread-count linens, feather beds and down duvets. All meals, plus use of horses, private cybex gym, & mountain bikes are included. Price is for up to 10 people, with each additional person at $150/night. Children's prices are less, see our site.

Property Description: There are twelve beautiful barrel-vaulted elegant suites with beautiful views of the Sierra Madres, each with high speed Internet, satellite TV, fireplace, terrace, and private bath. Rental includes entire hacienda, or just rent a single suite.

This property is extremely child-friendly. All meals are included.

Perfect for Destination Weddings and workshops! Step out your door and onto the Silver Trail. This is an ideal location for visiting a different colonial town each day, or simply enjoying the best of Mexico's Bajio region. Shop for beautiful Talavera pottery in Dolores Hidalgo, or for everything in San Miguel, while you enjoy gourmet restaurants, hot springs, and golf. Wander the charming streets and cobbled alleys of Guanajuato. Practice your soccer skills on our soccer field, play ping pong, or use our new Pickleball court by the pool. Spend a few hours horse-back riding down to the river, where you may see eagles. All meals, Horses, 17-piece Cybex exercise room and mountain bikes are included with your rental.

Spa services are available on site in our beautiful spa, with numerous treatments including full body, reflexology, hot stone, and facials. A chauffeur is available for a reasonable fee, as is a very knowledgeable bilingual guide for trail rides (horse, car or mountain bike), and seeing historic silver trail locations that most tourists never see. Full-time staff of 18, plus 6 massage therapists. When you rent the entire hacienda, it is yours for the week. This is obviously not your average vacation rental. Why rent a house when you can rent an entire hacienda! Our guests are delighted and amazed with their vacation experiences here.
We pamper and nurture you within our walls, and the small village allows you an authentic experience difficult to find in most tourist areas. Come see why Vogue chose to stay with us and photograph us for their San Miguel location shoot. Elegant, yet rustic and warm...You will love it! Once a presidio, or fort, along the silver trail in 1567, it became a hacienda in the 1700's. Walls are meter-thick adobe.

Rental rate is for up to 10 people. Each additional person is $150/night.
