Spent last weekend at Villa Valdemosa, and it was beyond our expectations! After a 6 1/2 hour drive, we arrived later than anticipated on Friday night. Leslee, the absolutely amazing (!!!) hostess-cook-housekeeper greeted us and suggested we join Tom (the proprietor) and the other guests for wine and "nacho night." Tom was warm, welcoming, and as we learned more, is...

Only stayed for a night but we wished we stayed longer! Grounds and Rooms were lovely, well kept and comes with a million dollar view. Lesley the hostess is a firecracker who seems to love what she does, has great stories, cooks up a storm and truly makes you feel at home ......an absolute Gem! We'll be back .... J&K

What a wonderful location! I felt like I was on a hillside in Tuscany. Valdemosa is a beautiful, intimate villa overlooking the vineyards of Paso Robles. It was very peaceful and beautiful. Leslie is gracious and accommodating. Whatever she can do to make your stay comfortable and relaxing, she is there to help. She truly is one of the most...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights in the Portofino room. Leslee made us feel at home right away, kept us full of good wine and food, and made great recommendations for what to do in town. The folks at Stillwater (the winery right next to the Villa) were also friendly, with great wine and prices. If you...

More like a small resort than the typical B&Bs Sweetie and I have stayed at previously. The Hostess Leslee goes out of her way to explain "This is your home for the next few days." From inside to outside, free to roam, relax, and stretch out. Happy Hour with complementary snacks and some good wines. Breakfast in the morning was...

Leslee was a very gracious and knowledgable hostess during our stay at Villa Valdemosa. Tom's property is a very peaceful and welcoming respite from a day filled with wine tasting and driving through the wonderful Paso Robles wine country. The food and service provided by Leslee (a great cook!) was wholesome and delicious. I highly recommend avoiding the crowded hotels...

Spending 3 nights here to unwind. Spectacular southern view from east to west from the top of a hill 0.5 miles off the road. Swimming pool to cool off. Leslee takes great care of us with wine, cheese and snacks. Breakfast to order in the morning whenever we want. I had French Toast. Martha had eggs benedict. Smiles from Leslee...

We stayed at two B&Bs in Paso during our visit. We were celebrating our 17 year wedding anniversary and planned on treating ourselves to a special experience the last two nights of our get away at Villa Valdemosa.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Villa for three days last week. The hostess Leslee was very nice and did her best to make our stay enjoyable.
