“Shout out for fresh picked lemons, bread, and local cheese!”
Me and a group of 11 close friends recently stayed at Villa Terra Bella for the weekend and were extremely impressed and very very very happy with the property management team! They are super sweet and truly a pleasure. The photos are 100% accurate and if anything the home actually looks better in person, its truly one of a kind, unique home that was super clean and unique. The pool area was beautiful and very clean, Patio furniture was also in great condition, the pool area was definitely clean. The Hot Tub and BBQ also worked perfectly fine. The fountain at the front of the house was indeed working and peaceful and clean. The linens throughout the house were clean, soft, and ready for use. The guest cottage was spacious, clean, and was a great experience for my friends who slept in it. I was also very impressed with the kitchen supplies, pots, pans, BBQ Grill Supplies, Baking pans, cutlery, large bowls for salads and marinating BBQ meat, soup ladles, marinating brush and soo much more. Thank you Villa Terra Bella for everything, you were amazing the entire weekend and ensured we had privacy, and if we needed anything it was great knowing you are under 15 minutes away from the property, we appreciated this. I also wanted to give you a shout out for the fresh picked lemons, bread, and local cheese, thank you so much!

“Villa Terra Bella was just the place for our families!”
We are four childhood friends who are now married with with children ranging in age from newborn to 17, and were looking for a weekend getaway, where we could just be together at a property. Villa Terra Bella (VTB) was just the place.
The main house had a great living area and dining room. Besides the great Viking kitchen, which we used to prepare each meal, the dining room has a great long dining table, so that we could all sit together for meals. The main house also had plenty of beds/sofa beds and the two sets of two bedrooms were apart to give space between families/couples. The cottage also allowed each family the comfort and space needed.
The pool and hot tub area is separated from the main house/cottage and gated. It was perfect. The pool is impeccably clean, large and there are plenty of floating devices. The hot tub (also super clean) gets to hot temperatures very quickly. So, it was easy to get it and use it whenever we wanted. The kids had a great time in the pool.
We really spent all our time between preparing meals in the kitchen, eating in the dining room, kicking back at the pool/hot tub and making s'mores at the fire-pit.
When we arrived everything was very clean and the property manager, Ali, was very helpful and responsive. As the propane tanks (for the BBQ) ran low, she filled them up immediately. As well, as we were cooking in for the weekend, we needed a big stock pot (which was apparently taken unexpectedly). Ali had a new one over in no time. Other than the help we requested, no one else visited the property during our stay.
The location of the property is convenient and close to wineries, while still feeling like you are in your own space away from a typical residential area. VTB also has some great tips on where to visit nearby.
It was a great weekend and VTB was just the place for our families.

“Our family members are still raving about our time spent at Villa Terra Bella.”
I want to extend a warm thank you to Villa Terra Bella for making our family celebration of my daughter's 8th grade promotion and my son's high school graduation possible. We were able to host our visiting family all in one beautiful and spacious compound. Ali, the property manager, even left congratulation balloons and cupcakes for the kids. Our family members are still raving about our time spent at Villa Terra Bella.

“Beautiful weekend away at Villa Terra Bella for a wine tasting girls weekend and it could not have been more perfect!”
My friends and I enjoyed a beautiful weekend away at VTB for a wine tasting girls weekend and it could not have been more perfect. We had been searching for a place in wine country and came across VTB which seemed pretty perfect but didn't realize how much we lucked out until we arrived. The owners Neil and Anjou were so welcoming, friendly and accommodating. The house was super clean and spacious and our group of 13 women each had a comfortable place to sleep. VTB is located very close to wineries in Alexander Valley and Russian River AVA and we were able to book a day of wine tasting within 10 minutes of VTB. I highly recommend VTB to anyone looking for a place to get away in wine country whether for a group event or a more intimate escape. It's a peaceful private estate with a beautiful pool and a cozy hot tub. We all had a great time and hope to go back. I highly recommend!!

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!

"Your next escape to the wine country"
Located 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.

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.

“Great property, great location.”
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.
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!

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!

“Above and beyond our expectations.”
Villa Terra Bella went above and beyond our expectations. From the smallest details, like leaving us cheese and bread on our arrival, to the beautiful amenities inside and outside, not to mention the awesome communication (seriously rare to find), we will 100% be back!!
