Flanking the great room are the villa’s dining and tequila rooms, each an elegant nook for enjoying the bounty of Mexico. Meals prepared by La Mansión’s dedicated chef can be served on a dining table by the San Miguel de Allende–based tinsmith Cecilio Hernandez, who also surfaced the ceiling and chairs in silver leaf. “Mr. Warner likes to imagine a mansion like a succession of jewelry boxes,” Vidal says. “Every room is a new kind of material. Every room is a discovery.”
The villa’s butler can prepare postprandial cocktails from the tequila room’s cache of premium spirits, which includes Clase Azul Ultra and Don Julio Real. In an eternal state of salud, the room’s wooden catrina doll is by Ojeda Morales and painted by his wife, Teresita González Marín.
