Great Escapes: San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

<< Back to Home & Style, March 2014

After Andrew Fisher and Jeffry Weisman trans­formed a former tannery in this artsy Mexican mountain town into their vacation home, the San ­Francisco–based designers were so inspired by the project that they launched a furniture line named after it. The new Casa Acanto collection (see “Permanent Vacation,” page 128) comprises pieces based on those found in their five-bedroom walled refuge, which is especially suited for entertaining. The property features lush gardens that are lit at night, fountains, and a saltwater pool so guests can take full advantage of the region’s temperate, sunny climate. Adding to the home’s charm are touches such as an L-shaped layout incorporating a light-filled courtyard, stone and tile floors, thick doors of reclaimed pine, windows imported from Spain, and an outdoor sala with a wood-burning fireplace and an Argentinian grill for cooking. The home comes with the full-time services of two housekeepers and a cook, as well as a gardener.

Rates: $10,000 to $15,000 weekly. Contact: Premier San Miguel, 646.536.7634, www.premiersanmiguel.com
