About Elena Raffard

We are a retired couple who spend the winter in Mexico. We enjoy working on our property and maintaining our flower and vegetable gardens during the summer months.

Elena Raffard purchased this house in 2006

Why Elena Raffard chose Okanagan Valley

Penticton is one of the friendliest and most beautiful summer vacation spots in the world. It is nestled in the Okanagan Valley between two lakes, surrounding by vineyards and orchards. Our property offers 2.35 acres of privacy and has a panoramic view overlooking the city of Penticton, Okanagan Lake and the surrounding hillsides.

What makes this house unique

Penticton has so much to offer for your summer vacation from floating down the river channel, enjoying the beaches, the many fine restaurants, wineries, and great free entertainment at festivals throughout the year. Our property is close enough to easily enjoy everything Penticton has to offer (within a 5 minute drive) but far enough away (about 2 km) to enjoy a peaceful setting with our unbeatable view from your private deck.

Fabulous views in wine country

  • 4 of 5

the views are fabulous, the garden is incredible! Our hosts Elena and Peter were excellent and very helpful with suggestions on where to eat and what to see. The beds are very comfortable and the location is an easy access off the highway, close to town. It is absolutely dead quiet at night. Only the occasional coyote howling can be heard. I would highly recommend this property for families and couples alike. It is both kid and pet friendly.
