Your Next Escape to the Wine CountryLocated in the heart of the Sonoma Wine Country, the drive to this quaint guest home is a treat in itself. Villa Terra Bella is within minutes of local wineries, spas and hot springs, antique shopping, a gorgeous golf course, museums and rafting. Although there are many activities to choose from in close proximity, we were there to relax and experience Villa Terra Bella to its fullest. We found the country road leading to the estate and — WOW — were we blown away as we entered the property. Nestled in the rolling hills of Windsor, we first noticed the giant palm trees lining the property combined with luscious grass everywhere. Quite a unique site for wine country! It truly has the European feel to it with Zinfandel vines, oak trees and ivy adding to the topography.We were greeted with a special bottle of their estate Zinfandel. To the left of the guest home is the heated pool and hot tub surrounded by beautiful masonry and vegetation. The poolside is perfect for relaxing after a day of wine tasting or hosting an intimate party. Villa Terra Bella provides a unique, dynamic setting for your special gathering.The shingled cottage is located between towering palm trees to the left of the main house and has a porch with chairs to marvel at the landscaping. A vase of fragrant estate roses welcomed us as we entered the bright, cheerful cottage. With plenty of space Villa Terra Bella easily sleeps six people, with two bedrooms + a full sized fold out couch bed, a fully equipped kitchen complete with coffee maker, satellite TV, a living room and breakfast nook. The master bedroom contains French doors that open to the huge backyard perfect for a pet to run around (VTB accepts animals as well for a small fee) or relax and bbq on the patio. Villa Terra Bella is also children friendly with a cool playground on the property. There was information on all the wonderful wineries in the area. The Sonoma Wine country is full of historic, award winning wineries where you can bring your gourmet lunch and learn about the wine.With reasonable rates, warm hospitality and awesome views, Villa Terra Bella is the ideal place to relax and experience all that the country has to offer.
I just wanted to let you know again what a wonderful few days we had at Villa Terra Bella. Everyone agreed that it was a perfect getaway. I particularly enjoyed the lush landscape and the natural pool and spa. I think I still feel a peaceful glow. It was so thoughtful of you to provide a coffeemaker and the flower arrangement... was a lovely touch.We hope to visit again!
We LOVE the cottage and the property! It’s beautiful, peaceful, and wonderfully secluded — yet so close to so many great vineyards and wineries. And your pool is spectacular. We can’t wait to return!We hope to visit again!
We were in town for my son’s wedding and stayed at the beautiful Villa Terra Bella with new in laws and other family members. It was the perfect setup for a large crowd. The pool was amazing and the way the house is set up gave people enough privacy with lots of family gathering in the kitchen. We thought the location was just so easy to hit the wineries and not far from our wedding venues. Just can not say enough nice things about the house, about the ease of which we communicated with VTB. Villa Terra Bella we will try our hardest to come back again.
We just returned from a four day adult weekend at Villa Terra Bella. The weekend was fantastic. Great property, great location, endless amenities. This property and location speaks for itself, so I must emphasize what a pleasure it was working with VTB to plan our weekend. They are very professional, accommodating and reliable. VTB is also readily available at all times, and was prompt to respond to any and all of our needs. Let me also note that I worked off of her list of recommendations available on her website. We arranged for Robert Negoesco of Eli Grace Catering to prepare a private dinner in the Villa one evening. He much like VTB was great to work with, prompt, efficient, precise and reliable. He designed and executed the perfect family style dinner party for eight people that we enjoyed from beginning to end. May I also point out that the fresh flowers and bottle of wine on the dining room table was a very nice touch to welcome us to the property. I highly recommend Villa Terra Bella and associates. Thank you for everything, I hope to return soon!
Villa Terra Bella was the perfect location for our small, intimate wedding and week long stay with our best friends. I arranged everything sight unseen from Ohio through VTB and the wonderful wedding planner they recommended, Kathy of Coppedge House Weddings & Events (highly recommend!!). This location, our wedding day, and the entire week could not have been more perfect. Everything exceeded our expectations. VTB was so helpful to me throughout the six months of planning. They really did much more than rent her home to us. Our photographer, Deanna of Deanna Kay Photography, also did an amazing job.First of all the main house and cottage were just perfect for us and our guests. We spent most of our time sightseeing during the day and then we spent our evenings around the large dining table inside or outside around the pool. The outside was fantastic with the outdoor kitchen, heat lamps, lighting, radio/speaker system, hot tub, large table and plenty of seating. This is where you want to be at the end of the day!There was plenty of room throughout the house, especially the large master bedroom in the back, which held all of us getting ready for our big day (makeup artist, photographer, friends). The patio off this master was also the perfect place for us to have a cup of coffee together each morning before joining the group (having its own Keurig machine, kcups, creamer, and cups was a really nice touch.) The other bedrooms were also lovely as was the cottage. We watched TV only one night and the living room was also perfect and comfy for a large group.The property was just stunning. We stood in the center of the small vineyard to exchange our vows and this was even better than what we envisioned. We also purchased a case of the wine made here and it is very good! The landscaping, palm trees, and entire pool area were just gorgeous. It really is the perfect place to have your own little retreat yet be so close to Windsor Square, Healdsburg, several amazing local vineyards, and the highway. I highly recommend this very special place!
What a beautiful place and so perfectly located. A couple’s long weekend get away for 12 adults and we had a blast. The hot tub and grill area allowed us to prepare and eat outdoors and then enjoy the hot tub. My friends and I visited for the Wine Road tour and I have to say, having a super nice place to come back to each night was a huge plus. Everyone had a great time and so enjoyed the house and cottage. We will definitely hope to stay here again. VTB is so accommodating and always available should you need anything. Can’t wait for another trip!
