Retire In Mexico


There are lots of reasons to retire in Mexico

At Summers Day Ranch, we offer the peace and beauty of a rural retreat, egrets and cormorants on the wing, situated in the fertile valley between the Los Picacho mountains, 10 miles from magical, enchanting, and visually and aurally magnificent San Miguel de Allende, a UNESCO World Treasure .
We enjoy 330 days of sunshine, with an average daily temperature of 80˚F, and a comfortable sleeping, night time temperature of 50˚F. Coyote's song under a starry sky.

Every guest has a completely private apartment, or small Zen house, sunny and beautiful, with a lovely full kitchen, gardens, and ranch wide access to Internet.

Life at Summers Day Ranch, under the beautiful morning sun, is a fabulous place to get morning started. Our gardens are Eden! This valley is magnificent. Our drinking water is absolutely pure. And the air as well.

Summers Day Ranch is very special!
