Disclosure: I was invited out to Allegretto Vineyard Resort. However, let me tell you, this resort left me speechless in all it has to offer. Post may include affiliate links.
If you reside in Southern California, you may be very familiar with the Ayres Hotel Group. I knew it was a hotel brand I recognized whenever driving throughout Los Angeles. Their attention to detail in their hotels was always showcased in all their properties.
But when Douglas Ayres visited Paso Robles, he instantly fell in love with the area! And he had a DREAM, to build a luxury Ayres Resort in the area. This was the beginning foundation of Allegretto Vineyard Resort which officially opened this past fall in Paso Robles. This resort was truly MEANT for everyone. Throughout my stay, many families were there enjoying all that the resort has to offer.
Allegretto, which means, “With Joy.” And, it is their vision to elicit joy to every guest that walks through their doors. Upon entering the resort, a very calm presence lies on the outside of the building, but as soon as you enter, all details come out:
Upon first entering, you will be struck by the details of the front foyer of the Resort. As you walk in, please look up, and be in awe, just as much as I was, at the intricate paintings within the foyer. Once inside, you will be instantly drawn to the staircase, and the light that hangs over it, which was brought in all the way from New York. The light even changes color at night.
After checking in, you’ll head to your room, with plenty of help, if you request it. From there, you decide where you want to go:
There are a variety of room options from King Size Rooms, to full suites, to Terranza rooms with patios that open up into the Courtyard or Gardens area. Picking your room is half the fun!
The Pool Area:
Probably one of the most popular areas to hang out during the hot summer months: The Pool Area, which offers Cabines for guests to reserve for a day at the pool.
The pool also has their own bar area where you can order drinks from throughout the day.
Surrounding the property is a Garden Area, with various areas to nestle into. Whether you want to grab a book and sit on one of the swings throughout the property, or just enjoy a bit of quiet within the gardens.
A fun fact: There are over 250 Olive Trees planted all around the property. There is also a Vineyard, and you will even find some vines throughout the property.
There is even an area designed specifically for Chef Eric Olson of Cello Restaurante & Bar. The restaurant right on the Resort property.
The Chapel: Abbaye de Lerrins
The Resort also hosts a Chapel, which is open to hosting private dinners, yoga events, meetings, weddings and more right on the property.
It’s especially beautiful right around Sunset:
Probably one of my favorite rooms of the entire property. And it is because of the backdrop behind the Tasting Bar. The design made out of Books!
The Tasting Lounge will be opening within the next month at the Allegretto Vineyard Resort where you will have the opportunity to taste the Allegretto brand of wines during your stay.
The Courtyard was the first thing that grabbed my attention. Looking out the window in my room, I was instantly drawn to it.
Whether you grab a drink from the Bar area then head to the Courtyard, or late in the evening, hang out in the courtyard around the fire pits, it is a place of gathering. And a place your family and loved ones will enjoy spending time in.
Some rooms even have Patios that face out into the courtyard, where you can enjoy your morning coffee or breakfast from. The Restaurant does offer Room Service although only open until 8pm each evening!
The Sequoia Library Room:
Just to the side of the main entrance lies the library room. Upon Entering you will be drawn to the GIANT cut out piece of Sequoia that lies within the room, with the markings showcasing HOW old this piece of tree, and all of the history that has happened during its year of life.
There are also bookcases with books upon it that are there for guests to read during their stay at the resort.
Various places to sit surround a beautiful fireplace, and it’s truly a nice touch to the resort.
The Bar Area:
Within Cello Restaurant & Bar lies a bar. This bar has a complete mixologist program which is coming out with some pretty amazing cocktails.
If cocktails are your to go to, a stop into the BAR is a must while you stay at Allegretto Vineyard Resort
Cello Restaurant & Bar:
Cello Restaurant & Bar is open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner throughout your stay. Opens from 7:30am to 8pm daily.
A complete post about the Restaurant offerings will be included in a future post. But, during your stay, please plan on breakfast or dinner within this restaurant.
No luxury resort is complete without a Spa attached. And Allegretto Vineyard Resort has you covered at Spa Allegretto.
Choose from massages, scrubs, or face treatments during your stay. And, for a true relaxation experience, you must include a visit at the spa.
Private meditation area is available during your appointments for use.
There are various art sculptures throughout the resort, and I highly recommend taking some time to explore the various sculptures found throughout the property. Trust me, you’ll find something new every time you look.
Allegretto Vineyard Resort also has many meeting rooms, dining rooms, and areas for hosting special events, dinners, or meetings.
And it should definitely be on your list when booking your Paso Robles Getaway or Wine Country !
