My wife and I took our first "big vacation" and stayed at the Chateau de Vie. Our reservations first had us at the Chanrick in but due to construction at that inn we were recommended to Chateau. We could not have been more happy. The grounds are beautiful. It is located off the road and at the edge of a vineyard. The home itself is immaculate and fit for somebody with a lot more money than me. Peter, though, makes you feel right at home. The room was extremely clean and the bed was very comfortable. The house wine was Mark West, a pinot that can't be beat for the price.
The best part of our stay, though, were the breakfasts. We went to many restaurants in our stay but none could beat the morning meals prepared by Peter at the Chateau de Vie! The breakfasts alone were worth the trip.
STAY HERE. The place is beautiful. The owners are great. The food is wonderful. The wine is flowing. You will be very happy with your choice ... and between you and me? The Chanrick doesn't look all that it is cracked up to be...right off the highway and all.
