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 Darlene, the home owner, and the wonderful wedding planner she 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. Darlene was so helpful to me throughout the six months of planning. She 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 sight seeing 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!
