Villas de Santa Fe
Travel Blogs from Santa Fe
Our flights were uneventful, but since I love flying I was
glad to be back in the air.
Our flight from Bakersfield was delayed so we hurried to our next gate in L.A. only to discover that we had a good 30 minutes before boarding. There was enough time to pick up a cappuccino at the Coffee Bean by our gate and I sure needed that after …
... huge festival. After the harvest, she returns to the church in another parade until the next year. It’s apparently a big cultural and religious event in the city.
More wind tonight with gusts to 50 mph. It was so strong we pulled in the slides on the trailer on the windy side. There was a weather alert that described it as down drafts from nearby thunderstorms. The wind blew really hard for about ...
... you lose some! We pack up and head into Santa Fe itself to check it out. It’s a historic town that definitely has a Spanish feel to it. There are loads of museums and art galleries but they’re all $10-20 to get in to which is a shame. Well settle for a wander round the shops and markets instead. The square in the centre of town is really pretty as is the church and little side streets. After a couple of hours it’s time to head back to ...
... we saw. So it was good to see it with the grandkids. It is a large building with many items of true interest. And having been to Taos, seeing the Bent and Carson houses, we were interested to find the histories tied together.
Dinner was Lotta Burger; we were not so hungry and after many meals of New Mexican food kids wanted a change. Unfortunately, outside of California, there seem to be no protein style or lettuce wrap burgers so I didn’t try the Lotta.
... looking for. We headed out to the Santa Fe main square, and walked by a few other bars. Nothing really caught our ear, and we were surprised by how few places there were to go. On Sunday we decided to do some exploring. Maria was shocked that she didn't take any pics on Saturday so lets see what we can find. Our first adventure was to drive up a mountain, our destination, Santa Fe Sky Basin. As we ascended, the surroundings and temperature ...
How has this resort rated in the past?
I wasn't sure how the stay would be as there were mixed reviews when I was investigating where to stay.
Well the place appears to be in the process of being refurbished as some rooms are being worked on.
We are a party of 4 with 2 adults and 2 teenage grandkids. I got the basic room. I chose this because of the proximity to the Plaza and the price was so great.
As it turns out everything is new or nearly new. We have a huge bedroom with a nice living room, dinette, small kitchen fully stocked with everything necessary for cooking.
The Plaza is maybe a 7 minute walk. There is shuttle service to wherever one needs to go within a radius but the walk is really nice. The Santa Fe School of Cooking that we will go to is also within walking distance as are grocery stores.
We needed extra blankets and had them within minutes.
I highly recommend the Villas to anyone and we will stay here again.
