We spent 10 days over Christmas 2006 with Elsa and her amazing staff in La Cruz which is just north of Puerto Vallarta. we wanted an authentic and personal experience away from the condo hawkers and commercial aspects of Mexico and we got it. Villa Bella is an absolute delight. Elsa really cares about your time in her B&B and goes out of her way to make recommendations and take care of you. In the morning you will experience a home cooked breakfast in the outdoor kitchen overlooking the Bay. Colorful and bright tiles and many special mdecorating touches enhance the experience. We had our 15 year old son with us and this was our first Christmas away from home. Elsa made it so special for us and the other guests. What a delight to experience this holiday in another country - from midnight mass at the small local church to the fireworks celebration it was all so memorable. Elsa's restaurant Frascati serves some of the best Italian food you will have anywhere in the charming little village of La Cruz or Puerto Vallarta for that matter. We loved the food and the congenial staff. We always felt like we were coming back to our home at the end of the day. We actually learned how to kick back and relax spending two days just hanging out in our lovely room, reading, relaxing, taking a swim, talking with other guests and enjoying the atmosphere. The buses are easy to figure out and you can enjoy the beaches at nearby Buserius, another charming little town by the sea. Sayulita, the surfer haven, to the north, is equally enjoyable. The word is getting out on this heavenly b&b and the sleepy fishing village of La Cruz. If you like stunning sunsets/sunrises, authentic experiences and like to make friends for life you can't go wrong. We will be back.
