“Very charming...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

My girlfriends and I stayed this weekend for my birthday. I live locally and would almost always rather be home on my ranch than out in a hotel. However, pleasant surprise! Thank you Inn at Europa for the fantastic hospitality and culinary experience. The room was nicely appointed, recently renovated. The bedding and towels were up to my standards, and the common areas, including the always-hot [and clean] jacuzzi, were warm and inviting. Chef Dean's breakfast is worth the trip. This is a little gem!

Room Tip: The rooms are probably all a little different, and certainly special. You can't go wrong with a...

This spanish style villa is beautiful with beautiful views from our private 2d story balcony which overlook the terrace and has valley and vineyard views. We stayed in the Tempranillo room. The room is warm and current with touches of burlap accents and touch of old european flavor. We also sat out on the beautiful terrace facing the vineyards. There is a gas firepit we enjoyed on the cool nights. We took full advantage of the new hot tub outside, where we looked out into the valley for miles. Chef Dean prepares breakfast using fresh ingredients from the citrus groves and other gardens. Breakfast was 2 courses always starting out with a parfait of sorts. We didnt need to eat lunch, the breakfast was so satisfying. This not your typical muffin basket or scrambled egg type B&B. Chef Dean and his wife Nicole were so friendly and accommodating we felt welcomed and were very comfortable making use of the amenities. We slept well as the bed and pillows were comfortable and the inn is quiet. We enjoyed so much we stayed an extra night. We also did the wine tasting at Europa Village. Kenneth was friendly and knowledgeable and the wines were all very good. I wish i could have this inn as my private retreat.

We stayed at this place because we were given a gift certificate to the vinyard below. Every single person working there was delightful and friendly. Our room was amazing, beautiful, quiet and with an outstanding view. We did spend extra for the room with a jacuzzi which was a good thing as the public jacuzzi was being fixed at the time.
Our only disappointment was that they didn't serve dinner as we would have rather stayed there and not had to drive a mile up the road. The next morning we were served the most gourmet and locally grown breakfast I've ever had in my life. It was absolutely delicious and healthy. Unfortunately we didn't know that if we had just asked the chef probably would have made us dinner the night before.
I would definitely recommend this inn for a romantic weekend.

Room Tip: I would guess the 2nd story rooms are just as nice and you don't have to worry about people walk...

This Bed and Breakfast is located above Rancho California Highway just far enough away from the busy highway and more populated areas of Temecula. From its location, surrounded by a citrus grove, the view from the large patio and some of the rooms is spectacular. The ten rooms are spacious and provide either a large balcony or small private patio area.
The "special treat" is the gourmet breakfast prepared by Chef Dean White and his gracious wife Nicole. He takes special effort to present a special breakfast each morning with unusual ingredients that will not only look beautiful, but taste delicious with each bite.
It is obvious that this delightful couple take special care of this facility and devote attention to the needs of each of their tenants. They are both very knowledgeable and familar with the surrounding areas, its restaurants, wineries, and shopping areas. You will not be disappointed with your stay.

Room Tip: Upstairs have a better view of the valley.

My husband and I booked a balloon ride in Temecula Country and stayed for one night in the INN at Europa Village.

The owners Dean and Nicole greeted us and showed us around the house, which sits on top of a hill, overlooking the vineyard and surrounded by a nice garden, grapefruit and lemon trees.
It felt like knowing Dean and Nicole since years and visiting friends. The Inn only has 8 guest rooms, so it is super quiet and you feel like part of the family.

We had the sunset room and the sunset over Temecula was absolutely stunning.
Dean gave us some restaurant recommendations for the dinner on Sunday night (after having his breakfast I wish he would have cooked us dinner as well) and warned us not to stuff ourselves with the pastries offered at the balloon ride as we would be in for a breakfast treat.

When we came back around 10.30 a.m. Dean served us an absolutely delicious breakfast on the patio. We had rum marinated strawberries with Greek yogurt, lemon curt, a brulee banana and some chopped almonds. Course number two was a French crepe, stuffed with fried mushrooms, caramelized onions and cheese. On top was a very delicious sauce and a sunny side up fried egg and on the side an awesome arugula salad.
I have to admit that I am not a big fan of the "regular" breakfast offered in Hotels and Inn's in California, but this experience was absolutely delicious and the perfect start into the day!

The Inn feels like a super small boutique hotel and I can only recommend it to anybody visiting Temecula!

Can't wait to come back!

We booked this on the internet from the UK and had read the rave reviews about the 'gourmet breakfast experience' but didn't really know what to expect.

The breakfast blew us away. The Chef Dean came up with an exciting, creative breakfast with a French theme. The creme-brulee style fruit was sweet and sharp while the main of cheese crepe melted in the mouth. In the words of my boyfriend, 'Dean- you spoil us......'. We wished we could have stayed for longer as Dean changes the breakfast themes on a regular basis.

The rooms are big with comfortable beds and have balconies overlooking the vineyards. Reading in the beautiful grounds was relaxing and soothing. The hot tub is an excellent touch as you can look up at the stars with a glass of wine.

The reason I've given a 'very good' rather than an 'excellent' is because I think the rooms could do with a bit of TLC. The bathroom in our room could have been updated as the shower control was difficult to use and kept falling off. I think it could have also been a bit cleaner.

It's a lovely B&B but it's more about the breakfast than the bed.
