The property is truly amazing. We felt like we were in a Tuscany villa in Italy. The place was very spacious and clean. Vlada welcomed us with some krganic grapes and chocolate. It was sweet of her to do that.

Girlfriends Wine- tasting Getaway

We spent 3 days at this lovely home and had an amazing time. We would go wine tasting in the day and come back in the late afternoon to enjoy wine and appetizers on the property overlooking the vineyards and the beautiful scenery and sunsets. Enjoyed coffee in the morning on the balcony watching the hot air ballons go by and then hiked in the vineyards afterwards. Vlada was a very gracious and accomodating host and we enjoyed the fact that she was willing to join us one evening and share her stories. We would definitely come back, we were made to feel like this was our second home.
