Stay in an award-winning home - featured in Vogue, Forbes, NYT & the cover of Architectural Digest! Casa Etérea is a luxurious isolated hideaway for two, built on the slopes of an extinct volcano - only 20 mins from San Miguel de Allende. This is a one-of-a-kind designer residence, with a private pool, in an astonishing mountain setting. Guests can enjoy hikes, horseback safaris, massages, or a private gourmet chef.

If you love design & nature - this is truly an experience like NO other.

The space
The concept behind Casa Etérea was to create a "theatre to nature" - and the house is actually a liveable art installation.

The large exterior mirrored panels blur the boundaries between the wild and the structured, evoking a deep sense of awe for nature. Inside, the 75-sqm home is a beautiful and intimate space, that was designed without partition walls – making the entire house one large room. From the central living space and bedroom, floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors frame vistas of towering cliffs, while opening to connect with a decked patio area and solar-heated pool surrounded by olive and pomegranate trees. The house also features an exposed glass shower with views to a staggering ravine, and an intimate kitchen equipped with ammenities for light cooking. Remote-controlled outdoor PVC shutters were added to provide security and privacy.

Guided Hike [2 hours]: 900 pesos total cost
Horseback Riding [2 hours]: 1400 pesos per person
Home Massages: 1500 - 2000 pesos per person

The off-the-grid home takes advantage of a wide range of sustainable building strategies including: using only solar power, a rainwater harvesting system - and most famously - a UV coating technology on the mirror making it visible to birds while remaining reflective to the human eye. It is the first and only bird-friendly mirrored house in the world. Also the entire foundation of the house was built from volcanic rock hand-collected off the site. Apart from its focus on sustainability and cutting edge design, Casa Etérea has also received international press recognition for its 'regenerative tourism model' as it is a fully community-run project that empowers and employs locally.
