Warm early evenings. The smell of grapevines, damp earth. Subtle breezes. A bottle of wine from your own vineyard. Works for me.
The Spring Romance area has a whole new face. Still in progress, more furnishing are needed; it is open and awaiting visitors.
The villa is large but a cluster of small rooms and hideaways leading to an intimate feel. Outdoor spaces and views abound. Fountains trickle artfully, climbing roses bloom. It is indeed lovely.
A comfy gazebo awaits you in the vineyard. Dining and conversation areas (as well a bathroom) are dressed and ready to go. Don't miss the room WAY up top in the tower. That will eventually be an artist's retreat.
