The Okanagan Spring Wine Festival has been described as "one of Canada's best small festivals" and it is no wonder that its success continues to grow. (blog by owfs.com)

Postcards

We had added a free electronic postcard service to realTopia Vacation Rentals. From the home page, you can access the link to several postcards of the Okanagan and the Playa Del Sol resort. Each postcard can be modified and emailed to a friend.

More postcards will be added over time, until we have photographs of all 4 Okanagan seasons. Meanwhile, if you don't see one that you like, you can always upload one of your digital photographs into a postcard.
