La Zarzuela is perfectly situated in the desert; only 20 minutes from the Tucson airport, 60 miles from Nogales, Mexico, 4 hours to Sedona and 5 hours from the Grand Canyon.

"One of the best is La Zarzuela. The name means, "the operetta", and as you'll see in this month's cover story, it's a place you'll want to hang your hat. Set in the lush, cactus-covered mountains, just 10 minutes from Tucson's historic Presidio District, this Frank Lloyd Write-inspired B&B offers food and service that rivals that of the best hotels in the world. The best part, though, is sitting on the front porch and watching the moon rise off the mountains. It's a site for sore eyes, no matter where you're from."

"The beauty and tranquility of your Inn has exceeded our expectations. If we had to measure your B&B against all others they would come up short. We could have stayed until the end of time and would not get our fill. Thank you for treating us like royalty. We had the experience of a lifetime at La Zarzuela."

"La Zarzuela created a most fabulous experience. Breakfast each morning was awesome. The hospitality second to none. Your Inn has provided the ultimate getaway and made us feel as if we're miles away from the stresses of civilization."

"There is no doubt that we will return to La Zarzuela. We were fascinated and held in awe throughout our stay. From the elegant music, incredible tapas and the magic you have created will remain enchanting."
