Mexico is for lovers.

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at La Villa del Valle in beautiful Mexican wine country exactly one year ago. It was spectacular -- the food was incredible, the wines were delicious, the scenery was beautiful...but the true gem was this little six-room bed-and-breakfast.

The proprietors, Phil and Eileen, took wonderful care of us -- they even went horseback riding with us! The villa's breakfast each morning was a hearty breakfast of eggs, tortillas, refried beans, and fresh avocado, complete with homemade granola, and a freshly-squeeze juice (strawberry, name it). The dinner service was just as lovely, and we often felt as if we'd chosen to spend our honeymoon in Tuscany instead of in Mexico.

If you're looking for a European destination but don't have the budget for European prices (or just want something different), I highly recommend our little villa. It won't be a well-kept secret for long.
