Description from owner

Privately situated on 10 acres, Rancho San Bernardo is an impressive and unique property specially designed for families that want to have a great time with their kids and looking for the best in vacation home rentals.

Located in a quiet magnificent little valley surrounded by rivers and impressive views, is ideal for a very private vacation where you and your guests can relax by the terrace or heated pool. If you feel like being more active, you can take a walk along the river, play tennis, fish, ride one of the well trained horses or even practice your golf, everything privately owned and available only for you and your guests.

Each bedroom presents it's own unique experience, consistent in quality and luxurious Mexican touches, such as a wood-burning fireplace in three bedrooms, fine linens, tall ceilings and fine Mexican arquitecture. The Master bedroom has it's own private living room and outstanding movie-theater system.

A positively exquisite vacation setting hard to find anywhere else in the world.

Beds: 1 King Bed, 2 Queen Beds, 10 Twin Beds, 2 Sofa Beds, 1 Crib

About the area

Just 95 miles from Mexico City, yet in another world! At 6,070 feet above sea level, Valle de Bravo has been called the "Switzerland of Mexico." Ringed by pine-forested mountains and set beside a beautiful lake, Valle de Bravo is a 16th-century village with cobblestone streets and colonial structures built around a town plaza. Like San Miguel de Allende, Taxco, and Puerto Vallarta, Valle de Bravo is a National Heritage village; new construction must conform to the colonial style of the original village. The village's cobbled streets, small restaurants, hotels, spas, and shops are full on weekends -- this is a very popular retreat from Mexico City. Some shops and restaurants may be closed weekdays. The crafts market, 3 blocks from the main square, is open daily from 10am to 5pm, and colorfully dressed Mazahua Indians sell their handmade tapestries daily around the town plaza. Sailing, windsurfing, bass fishing, and water-skiing are popular on the lake, as well as twice-weekly dinner-dance cruises aboard The Crystal. What's more, Valle de Bravo is known as the hang-gliding capital of Mexico! You'll see these beautiful gliders overhead on a daily basis from just about any location in Valle. And, if you feel up to it, we can arrange a tandem ride with an instructor for just over $100 dlls! We can also help you schedule several excursions in the area. Some of the most popular are a) Horseback trip to the nesting grounds of the monarch butterfly between November and March, b) a visit to the beautiful Catholic Spiritual Center of Maranathaa, c) a golf day in "Club de Golf Avandaro", one of the most beautiful golf courses in Mexico d) a visit to the lake and/or water-skiing in a well equipped motor boat and e) a memorable mountain bike adventure guided tour for either beginner, intermediate or advance levels.

“Fabulous Vacation Location”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2011

We were in town for a family reunion and absolutely loved it. It beat all expectations. The chef is amazing and made the most delicious meals. The facilities were beautiful and comfortable. Our kids still talk about this vacation. Plenty of room for large families. It did rain every day but just for an hour or so and then it was perfect.

“Way beyond expectations!”

San Bernardo Ranch is just simply amazing! If you are looking for a quite beautiful place where to rest and spend the most relaxing time, this is the place. The property is incredible well maintained, the personnel is very friendly and helpful and the house is gorgeous. The owners are such fine persons too. We really recommend it!
