Why Buy in Castroville?
Called the “Alsace” of Texas, Castroville has a rich history with unique French and Swiss style. Mostly settled by immigrants from the Alsatian region of France in the late 1800s, this area is beautiful and full of cultural experiences for residents and visitors alike.
The Steinbach House, an actual house moved from France, was brought to Castroville in 1997 as a gesture of goodwill from the area’s namesake region. Today, it’s the Visitor’s Center and serves as the community center, featuring BBQs, events, and more. Castroville Regional Park holds hundreds of acres of open space, miles of trails, and some pretty great views. With a municipal pool and a few parks to choose from, Castroville is a great place for outdoorsy residents.
On evenings and weekends, residents can enjoy the variety of tastes in downtown Castroville, from cafes to BBQ joints to bars and wineries. Residents can also take one of the Historic Walking Tours, some of the most popular attractions in the area. The Landmark Inn is also a great feature for visitors and residents, complete with a cute Bed & Breakfast in the Alsace style.
Castroville parents and their kids also benefit from Medina Valley ISD schools, which are some of highest rated in the area. Close by, homeowners can get groceries from the local Lowes Market or swing by Walmart. Because of the close proximity to US-90, Castroville residents can also find HEB, Target, and the Las Palmas Mall just a few minutes away.
Medina Valley Family Practice, Little Alsace Urgent Care, and a variety of other health care providers can be found in Castroville. For more extensive needs, residents can hop on US-90 and head east towards Baptist Emergency Hospital or other San Antonio-area campuses. And of course, commuters enjoy Castroville’s proximity to San Antonio proper. In less than 40 minutes on US-90, residents can be in downtown San Antonio for work or play.
