vacation rental description

Welcome to Hacienda Las Trancas. This huge, old ex-hacienda midway
between San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato, is situated outside Dolores Hidalgo in a small, safe, friendly village. Once a presidio, or fort, along the silver trail in 1567, it became a hacienda in the 1700's. Walls are meter- thick adobe. Beautiful, rustic elegance, furnished with colonial antiques and local artisan pieces. Private, fully staffed, including 20 full-time cooks, maids, gardeners, bilingual manager and concierges, massage therapists, and stable/pool personnel.
Enjoy 3 generous, delicious, authentic/gourmet Mexican meals per day. Our menu can be changed to accommodate your dietary preferences.
Luxurious bedding with high thread-count linens and feather beds,
plus down duvets. There are 11 beautiful bedrooms, ten of which are incredible suites, with satellite t.v and high-speed internet, hot-and-cold water dispensers, sitting area, private terraces, propane fireplaces, and beautiful views of the Sierra Madres. The hacienda is approximately 50 rooms, more than 40,000 sq. ft. under roof, with ten walled-in private acres. There are gardens and enormous porches. Practice your soccer skills on our field, basketball on the court, or invite the locals to a game of volleyball on our private sand court. Spend a few hours riding the
horses down to the river and watch the bald eagles. Work out in our 17-piece Cybex gym, then relax with the help of our private massage therapists in the hacienda spa.
Pet-by permission only
Very Child-friendly.
Smoking outdoors, please.
Step out your door and onto the silver trail. This is an ideal location for visiting a different colonial town each day, or simply enjoying the best of Mexico's Bajio region. Start the day with a facial or amazing massage with one of our 6 therapists in our own spa.  Shop for beautiful talavera pottery in Dolores Hidalgo, shop for EVERYTHING in San Miguel, while you enjoy gourmet restaurants, hot springs, and golf. Wander the charming streets and cobbled alleys of Guanajuato. Chauffeur available for reasonable fee, also very knowledgeable bilingual guide for trail rides (horse, car, or mountain bike,) and seeing historic silver trail locations that most tourists NEVER see.

"Incredible Hacienda"

Review submitted: December 26, 2009   Date of arrival: July 6, 2009

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at your incredible hacienda... You have done an amazing job with the restoration and decorating. Each little detail is more interesting than the last! It was so much fun choosing our rooms and then showing them off to each other. Every room was unique and intriguing yet so comfortable and relaxing. Yolanda did an incredible job feeding us each day and was so accommodating with our extremely picky children. The food was amazing to say the least. Also, her margaritas were the best on the planet! None of us have ever been more full for an entire week! We had so much fun during Derek's birthday fiesta at the hacienda and the band and celebration in the town added to the festive occasion. Dylan loved dancing with the children of Trancas and made a friend from Mexico city! The horseback riding was very fun, the mountains were beautiful, and the horses were so sweet. The massages were so relaxing and wonderful. We truly enjoyed them and appreciated every little detail. Thank you again for sharing your hacienda with us and for opening my eyes about Mexico and it's beautiful people!

"Thrilling, Relaxing, Fun, Memorable"

Review submitted: December 26, 2009   Date of arrival: August 18, 2009

Where to begin.... it was an amazing week!
The transportation worked out perfectly. Our guests were so grateful to be taken care of like that.
The food was unbelievable. I thought Phil might die from joy. And the staff was wonderful in making something special for the toddler. By the time of the wedding night, Yolanda came out to ring the bell for dinner and we were all drooling like Pavlov's dogs :)
The spa staff was great. I think we kept them very busy. Many of us would walk out of the spa and right over to the Oficina to sign up for another treatment :)
The wedding went down perfectly. I still don't know how... I mean, it's Latin America, right? What about the canceled plans, the late arrivals, the random hiccups that always happen when making plans in Latin America? No, everything went exactly as we'd talked about. I think that's why it felt like a dream... there was no differentiating between what we hoped would happen and what did happen. The folkloric dancers were a huge hit (and what a great job they did!), and the tequila burro and the fireworks were a surprise to everyone. The fireworks even surprised Phil and me, they were SO GOOD! Everyone was just laughing and shouting and clapping hysterically. When they lit up "K y P" on the top, and this disc on top lit up then took off like a rocket into the stratosphere, everyone about lost it. It was hilarious.
The waitstaff and bartenders were wonderful. The trio - oh my gosh, they played the songs we'd picked out as if they'd written them themselves. I know it must have take a lot of practice. It was really special.
So clearly it was a thrilling, relaxing, fun, memorable-in-every-way week. I think our friends and family were really blown away by the Hacienda, the staff, and the way we did the wedding. Many of them told us it was the most unique and fun wedding they'd ever been to. Not that it's a competition, but of course it feels good to hear that. The best part is that we did it that way for us, because that's the way we wanted to get married. We still can't believe we pulled off a wedding just the way we wanted to do it, and everyone had such a blast.
Your staff is remarkable. Perhaps the best way to show them is to visit again soon :)

"The most Fantastic Week"

Review submitted: December 26, 2009   Date of arrival: July 17, 2009

We had the most fantastic week at the Hacienda. The internet just doesn't do it justice, I knew it was gong to be fabulous, but quite how fabulous i had no idea. Tp get a team of staff so professional as to make you think that you are the only people to visit and stay there is one big task. As you know both israel and I have been in the hospitality industry for some time, have met and trained and been trained by some of the best, your stafff were beyond that. they were all simply fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble, they were so friendly and never grumbled about our mess or noise or the fact we seemed to eat so much of the delicious food. The rooms were fantastic, the pool gorgeaus, the horse ride an experience of a lifetime. I could go on annd on, and they would be words you would have heard a thousand times I am sure.
