Overseas travel has been out of the question this year and that had me longing for my summers in Europe. I found my own piece of Europe in Paso Robles at Allegretto Vineyard Resort. The property has a zen feeling and transports you to Tuscany. You’ll feel like you are walking around the countryside of Italy.

Westlake Village Inn is a gorgeous property located in Westlake, California. Don’t let the name fool you, this is more than a hotel. It’s a winery, a golf course, a spa and fine dining. Walking around the property you’ll feel like you are in the South of France or in the country side of Italy. It has European charm and sophistication.
