Set in tuscan gardens with Italian cypress, olive trees and low stone walls, the house looks across to a working organic farm and is situated among neighboring vineyards, yet it is only 2 miles from the Sonoma town plaza with its fine restaurants and entertainment and 4 miles from Napa.

Donna Dell is a retired employment lawyer and former Labor Commissioner of California. Having a love of travel since her early career as an international airline employee, Donna always found herself attracted to northern California's rugged coastline and picturesque hillsides, reminicient of her family's medieval village in southern Italy.

The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 2011

Having shared my Irish Beach vacation home on the Mendocino coast for more than twenty years with return guests, including many 2nd generations, Carneros seemed the perfect addition. The convenience of its location to San Francisco, Napa and Sonoma, along with the variety of activities available to all ages, prompted me to start looking in the Carneros region about 8 years ago. The moment I finally walked into this house I knew I'd found my Casacalenda!

Three days in the wine country followed by 3 days overlooking the ocean in beautiful Mendocino County make the perfect California vacation! Please visit VRBO property #275652 to view Donna's Irish Beach vacation rental.

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY

  • 5 of 5
We have visited the wine country many times prior but this has been the best place to stay. Quiet yet close to everything, and very well appointed, the owner has thought of everything here to make us relaxed and comfortable. We will be back!

DELIGHTFUL HOME IN PEACEFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This house was really a good find! We (2 couples) come to Sonoma at least once a year and this is finally one house we will want to rent again. It is so clean and well cared for, and homey with numerous thoughtful touches. It is so nice that my husband guessed that the owner lived there when not renting (not so). :-) There is an Ipod tower and also a stereo/cd with cds available to relax and listen to. There is a nice little card table that we used while listening to music and sipping the wine that the owner left for us. The kitchen is extremely nice with a coffee maker, espresso maker and coffee bean grinder. Outside in the back yard there is a lovely double hammock, a gorgeous BBQ and croquet! I wished (almost but not quite) that I had small children again who could use the very well appointed and secure separate play house in the back yard! This is a good value and a short drive to town center. The owner is very easy to do business with.

"GOOD FIND FOR SPRING BREAK, DAD"

"Good find for spring break, Dad"
  • 5 of 5
Instead of our "usual" spring break ski or beach trip, we decided to do something different, so when our family of four decided on wine country I started looking and found the "usual" overpriced hotels, condos, etc... Then I found this gem, love the one story living, very quiet, close to everything, gave us city folk just enough of a country feel while still being very upscale and extremely comfortable. For a family of four, great value.

VISITING FROM BALTIMORE, MD

  • 5 of 5
We searched many listings to find a home to stay in for our wine country vacation in October, 2012 and I am so pleased that we decided on Casacalenda. I highly recommend this lovely, comfortable, well appointed home! It has every amenity you could need and is located on a quiet street. Donna is a pleasure to work with and was helpful in recommending places to visit and dine.

AWESOME GEM

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely weekend at Donna's cottage mid June. The place was perfect for 2 couples but it would be fantastic for 3 couples or a family with kids too. It's on a lovely little street surrounded by wine country & has every ammenity you could ever need. It was close enough to Sonoma but far away enough to be completely peaceful. We loved it! Donna couldn't be more of a host with all of her shared information & knowledge of the area! Thanks for a great weekend!
