Just past Callaway Winery, the Inn at Europa Village is just another reason this gem of real estate is such a unique opportunity for vacationers and locals alike to fully embrace Temecula Wine Country.
The Inn at Europa Village sits nested on the hillside above Europa Village, and Temecula’s Rancho California Road in the gateway to wine country. Guests enter a private world with the feeling of old world Europe, just as envisioned with trickling fountains and an embracing courtyard that beckons, “Welcome home.”
With ten rooms–filled up on weekends months in advance, this newly renovated affair greets guests with rooms named after the Europa Village wines and varietals grown on the estate. Outside, all can enjoy cool afternoon breezes across the hillsides, and spectacular vistas of Temecula’s wine country.
This week, Chef Dean at the Inn at Europa, was in mid-feast preparation for the barrel stomp wine pickup party for Europa Village members. If you are a member of Europa Village’s Societe Wine Club, this is just one of the many discounts that you can receive — staying at this lovely getaway at the former Loma Vista Bed and Breakfast that looks nothing like its predecessor.
Each beautifully appointed suite comes with gourmet breakfasts, served with Innkeeper Executive Chef Dean Thomas’s international flair, that will take you on a whirlwind tour of Italy, France, and Spain, all created in a family style kitchen, and served up at the beautifully appointed dining area, all with that look and feel of old Europe. Many stays are combined with dinners and events at Europa Village, prepared by Chef Dean with fresh vegetables grown locally at his acre of land at Peltzer Farm’s, around the corner. Such events have included the Mystery Dinner Theater, with gourmet dinner, and breakfast in France, in August, 2013.
And of course, with treats and snacks available for guests throughout the day, provided by Chef Dean and wife Nicole, always around and about the property.
The inn requires a two night minimum stay on the weekends. Guests would be well advised to plan your trips as far in advance as possible.
While staying, take advantage of the hot air balloon tours available for a unique view at the quilted landscape of Temecula’s wine country.
Guests are invited to taste and tour the Europa Village facility in the two and a half hour tasting tour and wine education experience, such as Temecula Grapevine was invited to. For more information, read :here:

Europa Village staff will happily explain the future plans for this estate and winery. All seem hopeful for a ground breaking on the first phase scheduled for 2014, this dream is slated to become a reality in the not so distant future.
Europa Village is also unique, in the selling of property that will eventually house custom homes sold in plots of 2 ½ plu acres, which will begin construction after the new tasting rooms are built. Each home will also have vineyards on property, managed by Ben Drake and Europa Village Winery for the first few years of their life.
Europa Village has grand plans for the evolution—primarily the much anticipated building of three separate tasting environments into an adult destination experience. Each guest will receive tasting passports (two tastes per country), as well as enjoy walks past bistro fare at bread and cheese shops in the French section, and bistro dining and shops throughout the small village they anticipate creating here in Temecula’s wine country.
