Yes, the "withdrawals" from having to leave this serene, beautiful, magical cottage are huge. The owners, Spiro and Marie, are gracious hosts who see to your every need. And Spiro produces an incredible cabernet - OMG! And you can touch the grape vines while sitting on the deck watching the hot air balloons cover the sky early in the morning, or in the evening while sipping a glass of Spiro's wine (if you're lucky enough to get a bottle!) enjoying a sunset that I cannot begin to describe. The cottage has every amenity we wanted; it was obvious and appreciated how much thought and care the owners put into every detail…it was spotless, beautifully decorated, has a washer/dryer, well-equipped kitchen, gas grill on the deck, gas fireplace in the living room, and well appointed bathrooms. Favorite restaurants? All of them - Yountville is a mecca for the best. We spent the month of June at Bella Vista and have already rebooked for next fall - cannot wait to return and are counting the days. We will gladly recommend Bella Vista to anyone who is looking for the perfect spot in Napa Valley to be their "home away from home." Thank you so much, Marie and Spiro…you are an amazing couple, and we feel so lucky to have met you.
Our thanks, Joe and J'Lene Gennaro
