VILLA JULIANA: BEAUTY AND COMFORT

Sonoma House Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to Villa Juliana, our Palladian Villa at the southern tip of the Valley of the Moon -- surrounded by an acre of Zinfandel vineyards -- with terrific views over Sonoma Valley towards Sonoma Mountain.

You’ve come to Sonoma to savor its pleasures, and you might well find that some of the best are at Villa Juliana -- the joint product of an architectural historian and an interior designer passionate about Classical style, but also about cooking and efficiency.

The architecture, the interior design, and the extensive landscaping and vineyards will remind you of the Italian countryside. Almost every room opens to the outdoors, with windows and light throughout.

Downstairs is for entertaining, dining, and just hanging out. 10-foot ceilings, fauxed walls, and tile and hardwood floors contribute to the Tuscan mood. The formal dining room seats 8; and the outdoor areas provide multiple settings for coffee, cocktails, or dinner. Sonoma County ordinance allows entertaining up to 6 extra guests who are not staying over. The separate study provides a private place for work, reading, or watching tv.

Top-of-the-line kitchen appliances, including a 6-burner commercial stove, a prep island, and a second prep area with its own dishwasher, let you indulge your passion for cooking and entertaining, and provide ample resources for catered events. Covered and open outdoor areas let you take in the beautiful views, landscaping, vineyard, and pergola and pool area.

3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms are up the grand staircase. The master bedroom (queen size bed) has its own tv and fireplace; the master suite includes dual sinks, a walk-in closet, and a walk-in tile shower for 2. Begin and end the day from the private balcony overlooking the pool area and broad Sonoma Valley beyond.

The second bedroom hosts a 4-poster queen-size bed and an ensuite bathroom shared with the third bedroom. The second bedroom shares a second covered balcony with the master bedroom. The 3rd bedroom shares the second bathroom with its deep tub/shower combination and also has a queen size bed.

Walk in the vineyards; take a dip in the pool or luxuriate in the hot tub; hang out on the chaise longues in the pergola area; and gather around the fire pit during cool evenings.

Every weekend, and often on summer weekdays, you can see brightly-clad bicyclists starting their strenuous climb up the 7-mile Cavedale Road hill made famous by Lance Armstrong. It makes for a picturesque, but windy and bumpy car ride as well, especially if you stop at Petroni Vineyards for wine tasting a mile or two up the hill.

And of course there’s always all of Sonoma outside the property. Villa Juliana beautifully blends seclusion and access. B.R.Cohn Vineyards is less than a mile away, and there are over 60 wineries and tasting rooms with 5 miles. Whether this is your first or your tenth visit to Wine Country, you’ll always treasure the memories of Villa Juliana.

This is our personal home, and we trust you will show it the same care we do.

My wife built this house in the late 90's. It was a 2-acre donkey pasture. She designed it with an architectural historian who specialized in the Renaissance architect Andreo Palladio. Landscaping was designed by a leading Sonoma landscape designer (and personal friend). Julie also made all the draperies inside and out, and recently designed and constructed the lovely fire pit (and made the cushions).

I never tire of the changing views of Sonoma Valley and Sonoma Mountain. The property is secluded, yet everything is nearby.

Best Villa in the Valley of the Moon

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 7, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
Wow, wow, wow. What a fabulous time we had at Villa Juliana! We absolutely loved everything about the Villa including the setting, location, all the artistic touches, furniture, window coverings, impeccable landscaping, pool, architecture, vineyard, etc. etc etc. And did I mention the bedrooms and the beds? We all had the best night's sleep in a very long time. The Villa is right in the middle of the Valley of the Moon and within a half mile to wineries. Views from the second floor balconies are amazing. We thought we were in Italy. The master bedroom has an amazing bathroom and fireplace. There was a wine frig that we stored our wine purchases in and used the fire pit every night. Didn't have a single problem our entire stay. Julie and Wayne were wonderful to work with. Everything in the Villa and outside is very well maintained and beautiful. There was nothing tacky or cutesy. The Villa is a very comfortable and stylish home. If Julie and Wayne ever decide to sell the place I would love first right of refusal. Our stay could not have been any better. It's definitely the best kept secret in the Wine Country. We are definitely coming back and we’re definitely telling our friends

Fantastic Rental Experience

My partner and I traveled to Sonoma with two other couples last week and we cannot wait to come back and stay at Villa Juliana again. The house was the perfect mix of luxury and comfort and the location is ideal if you plan on exploring Sonoma County. The owner Julie was extremely helpful and she went out of her way to give us recommendations on restaurants, wineries, shopping, etc. Villa Juliana is a hidden gem in Sonoma that every travelver should experience!

This house is absolutely extraordinary! The home is placed perfectly on the hill to provide breathtaking views, and the architecture and interiors provide beauty and comfort for a nearly perfect "Italian hillside" experience. Our family and friends never wanted to leave, so we made great use of the fully equipped chef's kitchen for dinners and lunches around the fabulous pool patio. We willdefinitely return.

A Tuscan Villa

  • 5 of 5

  • Stayed: Jun 2013
Although I haven't visited Tuscany in a long time, Villa Juliana made us feel that we were staying in a Tuscan Villa (but with all of the U.S. amenities). The view of Sonoma Mountain across the valley is very beautiful. This home is elegantly furnished and spacious for six adults. The location in Sonoma is very convenient to visit the wineries in both Sonoma and Napa valleys. Julie and Wayne are very gracious hosts, and their home exceeded our expectations in many ways.

Wine Country Relaxation

  • Stayed: Apr 2013
We stayed at Villa Juliana for a relaxed Sonoma holiday and had just that. The home is beautiful and well appointed, especially for cooking and eating at home. We enjoyed the views of Sonoma from the balconies, peace and quiet and sharing wine gathered around the fire pit in the evenings. The home was close to everything yet felt far away which is just what we wanted!
