Authentic 450-year old Luxury Hacienda

Sleeping Accommodations: 12 Bedrooms, 15 Bathrooms, Sleeps 30

Bedding Information: 10 Kings, 3 queens, 2 doubles, 20 singles

Step back in time and experience the elegance of
another era, to a place filled with romance, tranquility,
and laughter. Enjoy the sanctuary of your own private
450 year-old ex-hacienda, located on the high altitude
mountain plains midway between San Miguel de
Allende and Guanajuato in the beautiful colonial heart
of Mexico. We are located in a sleepy, safe village,
with more than 40,000 square feet under roof, and
surrounded by 10 walled-in acres filled with lush
gardens. Rent a single suite or the entire hacienda.

Las Trancas is an amazing natural paradise for biking
and hiking, with miles and miles of scenic trails, then
return to your own hacienda in the evening for a stay
you will never forget. It is also the perfect setting for
destination weddings, family reunions, workshops,
birthdays, special events or vacation with friends.
This fabulous vacation rental includes all meals,
horseback riding, mountain bikes, private cybex gym,
and heated pool, plus a full-time staff of 18. Why rent
a house when you can rent an entire hacienda? How
often do you have the chance to spend your vacation
in your own private, centuries-old ex-hacienda?
Ideally situated in a small village midway between
San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato, our location
allows you the freedom to explore a different colonial
town every day. Upon opening the gates to your
private domain each morning, you look across the
square to the lovely ancient church, watch the slow
comings and goings of daily village life, and step out
onto the siiver trail. You can hike or ride for hours,
having the countryside to yourselves. There is a
large lake nearby.

The villagers are friendly, and the area is very safe.
Be forewarned: life at the hacienda is so enjoyable
that you may not want to do all those other things
that you had planned! After working out in our 15-
piece Cybex gym, you can relax in our sunny
swimming pool, heated with a dozen solar panels to
assure year-round comfort, then soak in the jacuzzi.
Sign up for spa services in our own private spa, such
as massage therapy, hot stone massage,
reflexology, facials, body wraps, haircuts and
manicures, all very affordable! Sharpen your soccer
skills on the field, or invite the locals to a friendly
game of volleyball on your private sand court. You
can start your day by horseback riding down to the
river, to watch the eagles, or drive the short distance
to Dolores Hidalgo, to continue your search for more
beautiful talavera pottery and tiles. You can visit the
natural hotsprings whose long tunnel, which ends in a
cave with water gushing out, reminds you of a scene
from Indiana Jones. Or spend the day at an olympic-
size swimming pool filled with the same hot water.
There is even golf and tennis to be found nearby.
