El Gallinero

"La Mansion del Bosque" can now offer you a unique type of vacation on an original 16th century Hacienda, "El Gallinero". It has existed since 1560, when it was a gift to a viceroy from the King of Spain.

"El Gallinero" now belongs to my son-in-law's family, and he and my daughter, Luisa, who live there, have decided to open it to guests, so that they can enjoy the beauty and tranquility found in this historic place too.

Relax beside the Hacienda pool and dream of the life lived here in the Colonial Days.

Later go for a hike through the woods of 300 year old trees. From the woods can be seen the thick, graceful arches of the ruins of the old grinding mill.

We have clay tennis courts, also a music room with a piano, drum set, guitars, and also a pool table.

"El Gallinero", (which translates to "the hen house") is situated near Dolores Hidalgo, a 30 minute ride from "La Mansion del Bosque" in San Miguel, or an hour and 15 minutes from the airport of Leon... a beautiful drive through mountains and forests. Transportation is available.

Double rooms with 3 meals @ US$190.

------Lovely tiled baths of Dolores Hidalgo hand painted tiles.
------Lots of personal attention by Luisa.
