The first B&B that my wife have stayed at where there is no one to greet you
and make you fee welcomed.
We walked in the front door found our evenlope with our name on it.
All the rooms are named which is nice except for ours, so wander around until we found the one room with a key and wander in and the found our name on a bedstand.
The rooms clean and quiet. Room was at a comfortable temperature.
Towels and bedding very clean.
The room we stayed at very little natural lite.Had french doors hard to secure.
The room is dark even with all the lights on. I had to steal a lite bulb frm the common
area for one of the bedside lamps was missing onel.
The so called chef prepared breakfast was a denny's quality.braekfast was from 9 to 10am.
don't be late.
The biscuts were reheated from the day before. Which meant they were cold and hard.
Gravy and sausage were cold as they haven't figured out how to keep them warmed.
Coffee was terrible, the strongest and meanest european roast that
ever was poured from a coffee pot.
Over price and completely lacking the charm of a true bed & breakfast.
All the french doors had a tendecy to blow open if not closed properly.
but if you follow the written instructions carefuly and practice they will secure.
To give you an idea how concerened the mangement and owners are of the care
of the villa, It was raining while we were there and nobody came to take care of the
cushions of the outdoor furniture, so they were quite wet and unsuitable for our use or enjoyment.
The immediate grounds look nice but the vines are for show and are very young
look god from a distance in photos but lacking substance first hand.
If you are expecting to be pampered and stay at villa in the middle of wine country
better think of Napa, Sonoma Calif.
We did enjoy a free wine tasting at the winery.
The whites very nice. Chanit nice surprise. The reds they need more practice.
We stayed July 4th and 5th.
