Steeped in rich colonial history, San Miguel de Allende is world-famous for its mild climate, spectacular architecture, and artisan crafts. In the heart of this charming historic town, Casa de Sierra Nevada
is a sublime hideaway of cool leafy gardens, stone arches and cobbled courtyards. Managed by Orient-Express, this luxury boutique hotel and cooking school caters to the most discriminating world traveler, with picturesque rooms and suites that embody the traditions of Old Mexico. It's a place that will stimulate all your senses-- from the natural beauty of the surrounding Sierra Madre highlands and the hotel's exquisite Talavera-tiled bathrooms, to the mariachi music in the town plaza. Sazon
, the cooking school, offers the finest introduction in traditional Mexican cooking. Housed in a magnificent 18th century casa in the heart of San Miguel, Sazon
attracts a large number of internationally-renowned chefs to share in the school's mission of celebrating the art, culture and taste of the Mexican table. For a limited time, you can stay at the lovely Casa de Sierra Nevada (and partake in those cooking classes!) for five nights and only pay for four.
