We were astounded by all the little touches that made our stay so wonderful. Inge, our hostess, welcomed us with a big bright smile and showed us to the Bellavista room, which had a cozy balcony just waiting for us to enjoy a glass of wine. The view from the room was stunning, overlooking the Bay of Islands from the top of a hill.
The room was so beautifully appointed, with fresh flowers, cozy robes and slippers, and a bar fridge already equipped with chilled beer and white wine, with red wine on a tray, ready to enjoy. We sure appreciated all the little touches.
The breakfast was the best one we have ever had, with a lush table set beautifully and situated inside a glass-walled room overlooking the garden and bay view. The meal was spectacular, with fresh-baked croissants (better than the ones I had in Paris, if you can imagine), fresh fruit salads, yogurt in wine glasses, fresh-squeezed orange juice, great coffee and cereals, as well as a made-to-order hot breakfast of bacon and eggs. Inge made sure to have gluten-free choices as well, and of course the conversations with her and the other guests made the stay even more pleasant.
Two energetic thumbs up for Chalet Romantica!
