Guests are delighted to receive a champagne breakfast each morning (with made-to-order hot items), sangria hour, wine-tasting hour and freshly baked cookies in the evening.

The best part of our stay was probably the breakfast buffet…We had our fill of eggs, potatoes, prosciutto, oatmeal, and coffee.
