This resort consists of a series of cottages overlooking the vine-studded valley. Large bathrooms have skylights and flat-screen TVs that can be watched from soaking tubs—"it's such a guilty delight!" The Restaurant and Bistro & Bar serve cuisine that mines regional produce and has, unsurprisingly, "a remarkably long wine list." Since 2010, the terrace has heaters to enable dining under the stars even on chilly evenings.
