Tom Rigby is the congenial host of Villa Valdemosa. His B&B is unique in that it has the best view in town which offers spectacular sunsets. My suite, the Portofino, was beautifully appointed and Tom's personally prepared breakfasts were delicious. During the cheese and wine hour guests were afforded the opportunity of meeting others and discussing area wineries and restaurants....

It all starts with the breathtaking 360 degree view of the mountains vineyards and the best the sun rise or the sunset. Then you move to the rooms excellently decorated to the Europe theme with highlights from the Italian and French cultures. The King bed allows you to just float way as you watch the television to view the 600...

I wouldn't want others to make a similar mistake in paying what we paid for a "luxury" B&B. This is not luxury as the one or two photos seem on the site. The reality is the rooms resemble more of a motel feel due to the lack of attention given to them. Crappy bed, odd service and limited breakfast. Countless...

Spent two nights here and everything was as advertised. Tom was super nice and the property is amazingly gorgeous. Our room was completely satisfactory, and Tom was very accommodating with our late-night arrival time. He even gave the guests a little acoustic guitar concert one evening on the back patio - he's quite the classical guitarist and if you ask...

Recently sent two nights at this lovely B&B. The views, as everyone says, are simply breathtaking. Leslie is a wonderful hostess, very warm and friendly, and made us feel extremely welcomed.
