December 2014 Stay

4.0 on January 04, 2015

This was our second stay at the Villa on busy weekends, We were attending graduation at A&M at 9:00 am and they served breakfast early to accommodate us. The breakfast and the wine and cheese tray were delicious. We have stayed in "Camelot" and "Texas" and they were both very nice. The Villa is nice alternative to the hotel chains that jack up their rates for football and graduation weekends. Our grown children were able to join us for breakfast on Saturday morning and they liked it too. I wish we had discovered the Villa sooner!

Felt like we were miles and miles away...

The rooms are elegantly appointed with unique furnishings and art from the owner's collection from his travels across Europe. The ambiance makes you feel like you are in Europe. The service was fantastic; very attentive. The restaurant serves food prepared with the different wines they have and is high quality. The wines are some of the best, especially the Paulo Port! If you are lucky, Paulo will be there and sign your bottles and hang out with the guests. We just visited last year and decided we would stay at the Villa this year and are so glad we did. It was great!

Perfect getaway

My husband and I visited the villa and winery for the first time this last weekend, and we absolutely LOVED it! Very romantic and quiet. Awesome people and all very helpful. Breakfast was delicious, and the room was very nice. We will definetly visit often! Very romantic, perfect getaway!

Pleasant environment away from the crowds

4.0 on December 13, 2014

We stayed here on a football weekend so, of course, the price was high, but the accommodations were much nicer than your typical hotel. The location is away from the crowds so you can have peace and quiet if you so desire. The restaurant is wonderful and it's nice that they only inflate their wines prices slightly over the same price of a bottle bought directly from the winery next door. Our room had a nice patio looking out at the woods and each room has a unique theme. My only complaint would be the huge tube was treacherous to enter and exit since the preferred end also contained a ledge and large back slope for taking a soaking bath. The staff are all exceedingly friendly and helpful.

Quiet Aggie Get-Away

5 on December 07, 2014

The Villa at Messina Hof Winery was a quiet get-away in the middle of an Aggie football weekend. The grounds were lovely. We were able to take a stroll around the pond, see the vineyard and discover quiet gardens. The wine bar with its selection of cheeses was refreshing and the restaurant was amazing! Hats off to the service and the chef!

Annual Anniversary Stay

4.4 on November 02, 2014

This was our third time to stay here. We come every year for our anniversary. The employees are super friendly and accommodating. You get extra little perks when you stay, such as the complimentary wine tour and tasting as well as 2 glasses of wine and a cheese platter at the wine & cheese bar. The breakfast is outstanding and so is the service! We will continue to come each year, we have 9 more rooms to go!

Wonderful Stay

4.4 on October 29, 2014

We recently stayed at this property and had a wonderful time. We stayed over the weekend and while the weekend prices are a bit high, when you consider the rates include a wine tour and tasting, champagne breakfast each day and 2 glasses of wine and cheese plate each night, it really is a good value. The service is excellent and everyone was extremely accommodating. The owner and his wife even stopped by Sunday morning while we were having breakfast--it was fantastic and a nice touch. It is a beautiful property and you won't be disappointed.
