... The rooms above are furnished as they might have been during the time of the Allende family's occupancy. Only one of these grand houses is still family owner-occupied, a large yellow house on the opposite corner from the Casa Allende Museum.
Another interesting museum is the Toy Museum or La Esquina Mexican. Over 1000 one of a kind toys from all over Mexico are charmingly and professionally displayed in this four year old museum. They have a good museum shop, too.

The Jardin is "the living room of San Miguel" dubbed because it is the social meeting place for residents of the city. It only became a nice green plaza with manicured breadnut trees in the last hundred years. It used to be a dirt plaza.

Historical Traveler Reviews Las Terrazas San Miguel San Miguel de Allende
We just returned from a trip to Mexico in which we traveled all over the country. Las Terrazas San Miguel was simply the BEST. Our experience at Las Terrazas was beyond anything a camera can capture or words can describe. We found it to feel as warm and welcoming as home. The casas are beyond terrific and the grounds are beautiful. We had fabulous views from our patio along with the soothing sounds of the water from our patio fountain. The shower was unbelievably terrific! The owners, Greg and Murray, along with the staff ensure all of your needs/wants are met. San Miguel is a wonderful community and Las Terrazas is the place to stay! It is within walking distance from everything. Again, words cannot describe the experience we had at Las Terrazas, other to than to say simply the BEST. We recommend and encourage anyone going to San Miguel to stay there.
Paradise in San Miguel
Las Terrazas is a fantastically beautiful and comfortable home away from home in San Miguel. The cassitas are lovely, spacious and private. Our place provided an island of peace after a great day of exploring this wonderful city. While security really is not an issue in San Miguel, you feel even more comfortable in this walled compound. The owners, Greg and Murray, took great care of us. Don't miss this place. You will want to come back.
You walk into the entrance courtyard and are immediately surrounded by a lovingly tended garden with a softly babbling fountain on one of the terraces. But wait, it gets even better! Our casa we rented (Casa Grillo) carried forward the same loving attention to detail. The décor of the house, the flowers on the table, the food and wine that greets the hungry and thirsty traveler, coffee and muffins for in the morning, the local Gringo newspaper. Ah, perfect, you are home.
Wonderful Ambiance and Hospitality
The pictures on the website don't do it justice. Las Terrazas are more beautiful than a camera can capture. The location near Centro is perfect - you can walk to any area of interest.
The real stand-out is the hosts. From the moment we arrived Greg and Murray's hospitality was evident. They had thought of everything to make our stay more enjoyable. They provided the local newspaper, a map, and a guidebook. Because we came in late they left us some wonderful food and freshly ground coffee for the morning.
Throughout the stay they were wonderful resources for "insider's information."
They were like friends, if your friends are incredibly welcoming, congenial, and have a fabulous place in San Miguel!!
Arriving at a strange place at after midnight can be unnerving, but the moment our host Greg Johnson opened the door and welcomed us to the gorgeous courtyard at Las Terrazas we were enthralled. Within minutes we were settled in with a glass of chilled wine and midnight snacks listening to Greg describe San Miguel and Las Terrazas. Casa Grillo was marvelous, even more attractive than the pictures we had seen at terrazassanmiguel. Fresh flowers, welcome wine, breakfast muffins, maps and guide books, a great book and video library are just a few of the thoughtful touches. The location is superb, an easy walk to the center of town. The casas are beautifully furnished, with comfortable beds and well-equipped kitchens, and the gardens are wonderful. There are so many places to visit I rarely go anywhere more than once, but Las Terrazas might just be the exception. I certainly recommend it highly. A great place, and a really great value.
I recently had the good fortune to spend several days at Las Terrazas in San Miguel de Allende and would rank it as one of the more enjoyable holidays I've spent anywhere -- and that's speaking as someone who has travelled pretty extensively over the past 20 years.
Sometimes you think a place just couldn?t get any better, but a return visit to Las Terrazas proved it can happen. New owner/hosts Greg Johnson and Murray Friedman have put their own special stamp of taste and gracious hospitality on this unique three-casa compound just five minutes from the center of the city. The lovely terraced setting is ablaze with colorful landscaping and the casas are beautifully appointed with authentic Mexican furniture and art. A friend and I spent last month in Casa Grillo, a first level two-bedroom apartment with a large, fully-equipped kitchen and gracious living/dining areas that made entertaining a delight if you are so inclined. But it?s the special touches that make Las Terrazas stand out?down comforters for chilly nights; flowers, wine and the fixings for your first breakfast on arrival; invitations to the owners? casa to meet other guests and friends; excellent tips on what to see, restaurants and shopping; friendly, competent staff who do whatever it takes to satisfy your needs . San Miguel is a magical place, and Las Terrazas is the perfect place to experience it. We've already made our reservations for another visit in the fall.
Las Terrazas - magical and serene
We just returned from our first visit to Las Terrazas San Miguel - a magical and serene experience. Las Terrazas is breathtaking in its beauty and comfort - exquisite furnishings, beautiful gardens, terraces, and restful fountains. Greg and Murray are gracious and welcoming hosts. San Miguel de Allende is a special city - the quaint colonial ambience, cobblestone streets, churches with bells that randomly ring, pristine blue skies by day and vivid stars by night, wood carved doors, and outstanding cuisine. Looking forward to our return.
Our lovely Casa
We stayed at Las Terrazas in Casa Mariposa for 2 wks Jan/Feb 2004. It is a little paradise: charming, quiet, tastefully appointed in the Mexican tradition and very comfortable.A large and beautiful patio with an abundance of potted plants and flowers made this an inviting and relaxing refuge.And the sunsets are gorgeous. A mere 5 minute walk to the town center and we were surrounded by everything: shops, restaraunts, art galleries, historic architecture, and the very colorful Mexican people.Greg, our host was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, very hospitable, and warm. He looked after us and all of the other guests well. We will most certainly return, and for a longer stay.
My husband and I stayed at the Las Terrazas in San Miguel for a week in October, 2003. It is under new ownership, and one of the new owners, Greg Johnson, was there. He, as well as their on-site mascot, Fred the Dog, were wonderful :) The grounds are beautiful and very well secured; the room itself plus the newly added water fountain on the patio of the one-bedroom studio was great; and the location of the Las Terrazas is perfect. We would highly recommend the Las Terrazas and definitely plan to stay there when we return! L & E from Texas
