FINESTRE SULLA VALLE - WINDOWS ON THE VALLEY

Sonoma House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8) NEW HOT TUB!

We are excited to announce the completion of our renovations! Enjoy our extended and spacious deck with an incredible view and HOT TUB!

'Finestre sulla Valle' is Italian for 'Windows on the Valley.'

You will feel your body relax and blood pressure go down as you pull up the winding driveway of our luxury custom built home in the Sonoma wine country and experience its awesome views. You are surrounded by heritage Oaks and Madrones which creates the feeling of being in the middle of the woods. This secluded 2700 sq. foot home on 3 acres is at the end of a private road but conveniently only 3/4 mile from Highway 12 and its access to all that the Sonoma Wine Country has to offer. You enter into the Great Room which has a cozy lodge feeling with an artisan river rock, wood burning fireplace and 16 ft. floor to ceiling windows showcasing the spectacular view across the Sonoma Valley of the Moon to the vineyards on the far side of the valley.

The gourmet kitchen features granite counter tops, a Wolf Range, and a large island with a prep sink. It is often the central gathering place for wine and antipasti while someone is preparing dinner. The kitchen is fully furnished with equipment for anything from snacks to a 5 course meal as our family, who loves cooking, uses the home as a retreat from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. The room was painted by a local artist in a Tuscan ochre color-wash. With the candlelit wrought iron chandelier above the dining room table as well as the many candles throughout the room, it brings to mind a warm rural Italian ambiance-especially with all the surrounding vineyards! In addition, there is a Weber propane gas grill with all the useful BBQ tools available just off the deck.

There are 3 full bedrooms and a den in which to retire. The Master features a queen bed with an attached full bath (only bath tub, no shower) that has the beautiful valley view and a deck. The second guestroom on that floor features twin beds that can be easily made into a King which views the quiet wooded surroundings. The third bedroom is on the lower floor and features an antique queen bed and view of the valley as well as secluded trees. There is a den off the Great Room that has a comfortable Queen pull-out sofa bed.

You can sit on one of the two spacious decks with a glass of wine or a quiet cup of coffee in the morning and enjoy the views of the valley, hills, vineyards and breath-taking sunsets or on the other deck, where you can feel the coziness afforded by the seclusion of surrounding trees.

In addition, there are other activities available in the house.

The very large Bonus Room has an 8 foot Slate Brunswick pool table and Ping-Pong table as well as a horse bristle dart board. This room effectively allows part of a group to be off by themselves if so desired. The home has Wireless Wifi, 2 TV's with Satellite reception with Blue Ray and stereo.

Located conveniently about a 5 minute drive west of the Sonoma Plaza, you are perfectly situated for strolling the local boutique shops and exploring it's trendy restaurants. The house is also just down the road from the world-renowned Sonoma Mission Inn with its day-spa facilities and pool, if pampering is on your itinerary.

Heading north on beautiful Highway 12, you can visit historically and enologically famous wineries as well as up and coming new ones. We are available to assist in making arrangements for tours and tastings at any number of wineries from Valley of the Moon or other, less explored areas such as Dry Creek and Alexander Valley. We even have a fully loaded picnic basket that you can use to picnic among the vines or at one of many gorgeous wineries! We can be invisible or an integral part of your stay in our home with advice, directions, or reservations. Please let us know how we can help to enhance your stay in the spectacular Sonoma Valley!

Keywords: Secluded, custom built home with a private driveway and fabulous views on three wooded acres

Please note: As of January 1st, 2013, we will be raising the cleaning fee to $250. Thank you for your understanding.

Wine and Meteors

  • 5 of 5
This is our second stay at Finestre Sulla Valle and most certainly won't be our last! We love this home. Molto Bella! It's situated down a winding drive and sits quietly tucked up against a hillside, overlooking the Sonoma Valley. The home is in excellent repair, clean, comfortable and graciously appointed with everything you could need for an easy stay. The open great room means that everybody can be together, but the rooms and deck allow enough privacy that you don't have to be. The basement game area gives another place to get together in a friendly rivalry. We happened to be there during a recent meteor shower and the night sky was fantastic, with our without shooting stars. The views are amazing, morning, noon and night. Close enough to restaurants, stores and, of course, wineries, yet far enough away to feel like you "got away". The owners were great to work with all the way through, and we were greeted by a warm, personal note. You couldn't go wrong renting Finestre Sulla Valle...unless you're renting when WE want to! :-) Buon viaggio!

Wonderful Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We had 8 girls to Sonoma to celebrate a friend’s upcoming wedding and it was perfect. The house was perfect: the beds were comfortable, the views were unbelievable, the area was private, the water pressure was great. The owners of the house were very responsive to emails before our arrival, available for a quick question during our stay and left us a bottle of wine for us with a welcome note! It was the first time to Sonoma for most of our group and this house really helped make the trip that much more memorable. Thank you for providing a great house for our stay!

Girls Weekend Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We had 8 ladies spend the weekend in your lovely home. We all loved it! It was clean, well maintained, and had all the amenities of home. The pool and ping-pong tables were a great plus! The kitchen was well stocked with every gadget that you could possibly want. The welcome bottle of wine in the fridge was an unexpected treat! We sat out on the deck and enjoyed the beautiful view. Thank you so much!

Gorgeous View

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful property. The house has an open plan with beautiful views of the mountains from the kitchen, gathering room, central hallway and master bedroom. The deck extends the length of the house. The lower level can also provide entertainment for the entire family. There were 8 of us that stayed in the house...all family members spanning three generations, and we could not have found a better house for the money. The owners are great...very accessible and they will also help with recommendations for wineries and food. We had a wonderful experience!

Amazing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This is THE perfect retreat! Every attention to detail is made and this is a very welcoming home... you immediately feel relaxed and comfortable and it is the perfect place to be. The added bonus is how close to historic downtown the home is situated, yet you still feel like you are a million miles away, especially when you sit out on the heavenly deck enjoying the day's catch (wine :). I would recommend this rental to anyone and would definitely stay again! The owner, Bruce, was excellent with communication and our stay was effortless! They also don't have you perform a huge list of "check outs" when you leave (strip beds, start a laundry load, etc), which made it so nice- you can enjoy your stay and then actually easily go. (I've stayed at VRBO places where you literally have 1-2 pages of check out procedures... um, why am I paying a $300 cleaning fee??). So, thank you for a perfect, easy, relaxing, and enjoyable staycation!

Privacy with the luxury of being minutes from everything!

  • 5 of 5
We wanted to explore the wine country during the day but come back to a private and relaxing atmosphere to unwind each evening. This beautiful Sonoma home was just the spot we needed with it's inviting views and well equipped kitchen. The house has a great deck in the back for unwinding in the evenings and a wonderful front deck to enjoy the beautiful valley each morning with your cup of coffee. The house is so well maintained and we loved that each bedroom had a separate bathroom so each couple had privacy, yet we were able to enjoy being in the large family/kitchen area and downstairs "sport's" area as a bigger group. It was definitely a home away from home!!

Bruce was exceptional to work with and we definitely will recommend his home to our friends. The location is just minutes from anything you could need for an exceptional vacation.
