With a long, steep driveway lined by lavender and olive trees, Villa Veldemosa is nestled in the hills about 20 minutes east of Paso Robles. Remotely located, animal lovers will rejoice watching the deer, hawks, and quail at this quaint, five-room B&B.
With high ceilings and solid, comfy furniture, the main house is warm and inviting. For music lovers, there is a piano. The heliocentric will love the pool with hot tub, while those more used to veg-ing out in front of the TV will revel in the enormous DVD collection.
The personable and outgoing innkeeper, Tom, loves to talk about wine and personally attends to guests' needs.
While potentially idyllic, the setting is marred by a few flaws. Two or three guest rooms are in a converted garage, and fixtures are low-end for an establishment that is otherwise so nice. There was no closet to store clothes, just a wire utility shelf from Home Depot bolted to the wall. There were only a few $0.39 plastic hanger on which to hang clothes. The screen door was nearly falling off. The bathroom door did not shut properly. The screen of the combo TV/DVD player was so small as to be un-viewable from the bed. Etc. Etc.
If you are looking to experience a rural, wine country B&B, Villa Valdemosa may be for you. If you are looking for a home base from which to explore west-side wineries and local restaurants, there are better options: Villa Bellasera ($199+), SummerWood B&B ($250+), and Hotel Cheval ($325+) are your "go to" properties.
Regardless of your holiday goals, in these times for $275 a night, Villa Valdemosa (or any other property) should deliver true wine country luxury. A personable innkeeper can only go so far; for that kind of money, one can, and should, expect more.
