|With much anticipation and after many months of renovation, Casa Estrella de la Valenciana is eager to showcase its newest addition, Estrella del Sur! The tennis court has been lined, the flowers are in the reflecting pool and stained glass Moorish style windows grace the Aurora Spa.
Built in the 1950’s by a Columbian diplomat to Tunisia, the fashionable villas have been transformed into Mediterranean paradise with stunning views high atop the city of Guanajuato.
With a desire to build on the historical roots of this property and its architectural design, a new Moroccan fusion style has been incorporated in the resort. Estrella del Sur seeks to give guests a sense of the exotic hybrid of influence in the architecture, gardens and decorative flourishes borrowed from Morocco. This style builds on the Arab and Berber influences combined with the Hispano-Roman culture of southern Spain which was transferred to Mexico in the 16th century.
Nestled on the hillside above the city in the Colonia Mineral Valenciana, you will find a peaceful repose from the hustle and bustle of the Centro. Breath-taking views will inspire your time spent here, whether you choose to relax by the pool, play a game of tennis, meander the lavishly blooming gardens, or meditate in a solitary space, or pamper yourself with a soothing massage; you are sure to find a place to quiet the mind, energize the body and renew your spirit.
This luxury property, with a full staff providing extraordinary hospitality, offers guidance on everything from tequila tastings to archeological sites recently opened in the state of Guanajuato.
Consider this “Su Casa en Guanajuato” (your home in Guanajuato), with privacy, the luxury of simplicity and personal touches that you would want in your own home. Sharing characterizes Mexican living and we want to share this experience with you!!
