Transportation & Taxi Service
While we still recommend renting a car to be able to fully appreciate
our area, we do offer fee based taxi & transportation services
for touring wineries, dining destinations, airport pickup &
dropoff and more. For renting your car we still highly recommend pickup
at an airport due to much better hours of operation and the ability to
purchase "Francchigio" insurance (no out of pocket expense in the case
of damage or accident) only available at airport car rental counters!
Breakfast Buffet & Restaurant

Pardini and Jay Russell
Many say our Breakfast Buffet is the best of their entire trip. We
offer both cold and hot selections and our coffee is premium,
handpicked Kilamangaro which is dark roasted by a small, artisanal
roaster to our specifications. We also offer an excellent Tea service
with a large selection of high quality black, green & herbal
teas as well as French made Tisanes.
Gardens and Grounds
There are many special places where you can sit and relax to drink in
the magic of 1000 year old stone walls and massive hand hewn doors. The
terrace or back lawn invites you to stay with a glass of wine or cup of
coffee and enjoy views of the ancient village and surrounding hills and
vineyards. The courtyard lawn and garden of jasmine, impatiens, sweet
alyssum and masses of pink geraniums inspires lingering and relaxing
with a loved one. Under the vine portico, especially at night with the
old stone walls illuminated, one can fall in love all over again.
Pool and Fountains
Is there anything more enchanting than listening to the soft gurgling
of a fountain and gazing into the turquoise blue of rippling water? It
is a particular joy when it is combined with the surprise of
overlooking a stunning Baroque chuch and belltower sitting atop a
medieval village and taking in sweeping views of forest and vineyards.
It is the perfect spot from which to watch the sun going down in the
late evening, dropping behind the medieval church tower and then the
far hills, burnishing golden red the rows of vines.
Sauna,Exercise Room & Mountain Bikes
What better way to ensure your relaxtion than to warm every fiber of
your being with penetrating heat. After a day or two of sightseeing,
eating and drinking some of the finest wine in the world, a little
spinning and sauna can restore you to form. Ask the Front Desk for the
key to our mini wellness room, to help you turn up the heat or schedule
a massage with our on call massage therapist
Our Activities and Events Page
is a good way to help plan your exploration of Piemonte, one of the
