  1. Just want to add that there is a lot in walking distance so even though we drank wine nonstop there was no driving needed even for a very old very fat man like me. Ha ha ha ha ha.

  2. My husband and I stayed there and it was so beautiful. I drank way too much wine but what’s new. Thanks for highlighting this magical place.
