My Partner and I had the pleasure of a week at NC's Blue Harbour. We stayed in Villa Chica where Dietrich and Hepburn would live when visiting the Master. The entire property is well maintained and we spent each morning lounging and reading at the pool. As it is far from the tourist places, you can expect to truly relax and breathe in the spectacular view from any point on the property. Candy made us 3 delicious meals a day. Roy looked after us and even brought us for a hike to visit NC's resting place. The staff was attentive when needed, but respected the quiet and privacy we enjoyed while visiting. You can feel the energy of NC and his celebrated guests as you walk around the property, too. Books, paintings, furniture -- even the cutlery -- all reflect the glam of a different era. Looking forward to our return next March! Many thanks to Michele, the lovely Owner, who made booking everything so easy! It was a wonderful and memorable Birthday!
