I'm suddenly in a photoblogging mood, so I decided to go through the images I captured last August when we stayed at The Inn at Europa Village. This place is absolutely amazing. We had previously stayed at the South Coast Winery and fully enjoyed it, but Europa Village is completely next level. I highly recommend checking out this Temecula Bed and Breakfast.
Almost all the rooms have balconies, but I selected the Viognier because it faces west.
Unfortunately, this tree blocks your view of the actual sunset. It's still a great room with a fantastic view.
Finding this random Korean book was interesting.
The inn's location is perfect—just past where Rancho California Rd stops being suburban and starts feeling "wine country." Perched on top of a hill, you really get some wonderful views of the surrounding valley.
It's not unusual to see several hot air balloons taking their morning flights. Even if you don't see them, you'll probably hear the thumping bass of the balloons' burners.
Naturally, you'll see a lot of balloon-themed decor like this hummingbird feeder.
Wandering the grounds, you can get a preview of the incredible breakfast you're about to experience. Chef Dean uses fresh ingredients from the garden to craft his creative dishes.
As he presents each dish, Chef Dean goes into such tremendous detail, it's tough to catch it all. It's even tougher to remember, especially since it's been so long. In short, everything was delightfully delicious. Plus, a picture is supposed to paint a thousand words, so here are five thousand for your viewing pleasure.
