This place is a postcard. The views (when the mountain is not on fire) is tangible serenity. There are horses, wine walks, homely cats, and wine tasting. Service is impeccable, formal, and precise. The dinners were taste sensation.

Wonderful retreat. The warm welcome I received upon arrival and the effort everyone made to ensure that I was comfortable and cared for left me feeling at home immediately. The chef treated me with wonderful creative vegetarian dishes. I will be back!
