EXQUISITE WINE COUNTRY VILLA RESORT AND WINE CAVE, VILLA MONTEBELLA

Glen Ellen Villa Rental Photos and Description

Incredible secluded Villa with wine cave, gym, tennis, pool, theater & 10 Baths

Acres of tranquil privacy with a large vineyard of world class Cabernet Sauvingon.

Italian Riviera Villa in the heart of the California wine country. Perched atop it’s own small mountain, the magnificent Villa Montebella commands spectacular wine country views of two majestic valleys and the San Francisco Bay. Come and experience the bounty of Sonoma County with our Sonoma Wine Discovery Program. Featuring tours of our vineyards and wine cave, tasting of our wine and other wines of our neighboring wineries. Free and discounted tasting passes, expanded tours and special tastings at several of our local wineries are included. We also offer a complete viticulture seminar so you can learn about what makes Sonoma County the best wine region to visit in the world.

The long private drive winds upward through a canopy of live oaks until the stunning Villa bursts into view surrounded first by a necklace of ten acres of terraced world class Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards then manicured lawns, exotic plants and beautiful gardens, highlighted by the sights and sounds of dozens of soaring palms gently swaying with the breeze. The only thing missing from this Italian inspired Villa is the Mediterranean Sea!

The secluded property is surrounded by hundreds of acres of oaks and madrone trees with views of numerous vineyards in all directions. Enjoy your privacy in this oasis of tranquility where not even a single car can be heard in the distance and yet the entrance is just a mile away from world class dining and wineries. The unparalleled location is just the beginning. The estate features a massive seven thousand square foot wine cave filled with exotic art and complete with a game room with championship shuffleboard table, ping pong, air hockey and foosball. Lean up to the cave’s rustic wine barrel bar for a glass of our exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon before sitting down for dinner at the cave’s dining tables.

The prestigious main house features twenty foot high massive beamed ceilings with large skylights and a very large and lavish living room with wood burning fire place. There is a formal dining room, library and media room, a large master suite with an incredible tiled shower room with four shower heads fit for a sultan and two other bedrooms with fantastic views. The recently renovated enormous commercial grade kitchen features dual Viking ranges, three sinks, dual dishwashers, large Sub-Zero refrigerator and industrial sized outdoor gas grill. There is seating for twelve around a central island plus two window benches and enough production capability to operate a fairly large restaurant. Perfect for the most discriminating gourmet cook in your group or simply pick from our list of renowned local chefs on call* to come and prepare a delectable meal on site. The main house also features a spa facility with huge outdoor ten person sunken hot tub, steam and dry sauna rooms, lounge area where you can enjoy a massage, body treatment or any selection from our full spa menu*. Then stroll over to the exquisitely tiled forty-five foot outdoor *heated saltwater pool and lounging area and enjoy a relaxing swim with wonderful music provided by the multi-zone Sonos system that operates throughout most of the property.

There are several other buildings in the Villa compound that combine for a total of seven bedrooms and ten bathrooms including five spectacular master suites with king sized beds and full bath rooms. All rooms have music systems, Wi-Fi and Satellite television. There is a specially designed and acoustically superior THX twelve plus person theater room complete with Xbox 360 + Kinect, hundreds of movies on DVD and thousands available on demand. There is also a lobby/office area and a well appointed spacious gym with a personal trainer* and Yoga instructors* available. Have the match of your life on our freshly renovated lighted tennis court with views of the San Francisco Bay. If that’s not enough activity how about basketball, an exquisite bocce ball court, grass volley ball or badminton and croquet!

We recently rented the villa for an executive offsite the team had a fantastic time! Our company is food based and we were looking for a place with a large chef's kitchen. This place was perfect for cooking our team dinners and the tranquil setting gave everyone the opportunity to relax and enjoy the spectacular surroundings. The house was fully furninshed with everything could want! A truly perfect setting!

Montebella family trip

This place in a word is magical. Certainly all the features of a multi-million dollar estate, add charm and style and you have the perfect equation in Montebella. My family of sixteen, ages 4 to 84, all had the trip of a lifetime. In fact the only problem was getting people to explore Napa and Somona, as they didn't want to leave the 22 acre estate.
If you really want to treat yourself go to Montebella!
FYI the managers, Sheryl and Randy were terrific and on 24 hour call.

From the moment I drove up the driveway, I was awestruck by the beauty of this villa. Where do I begin? We rented this resort for my birthday, inviting 6 other couples, for the weekend last spring. It was spectacular! The photos don't do it justice...you must see it in person. The main house is gorgeous, yet very comfortable, with a very large kitchen fit for entertaining. The views are absoluteley amazing from the porch swing off the kitchen, where we sat & had coffee in the mornings. The upstairs main bedroom is stunning, which is where my husband and I slept. It was nice to fall asleep to the sounds of nature. Our friends were amazed by the gorgeous suites in the other structures, all very private and quiet. But the focal point for us was the pool! Sitting outside in the sun by the pool, looking at expansive vineyards and the beauty of glen ellen....let's just say we didn't want to leave! The wine caves were very cool and would make an excellent space for some type of event. There is a hot tub, tennis courts, bocce court, wet/dry sauna and theater (wow!). There wasn't one thing we were wanting for or missing here. It was a trip of a lifetime. Well, hopefully not as our friends are begging us to rent this treasure again!

Outstanding location, beautiful setting, enormous space and perfect for us! Whether you are a large group/family, this place has plenty of quiet locations to relax - with many balconies, side porches, sitting areas, etc. The wine cave - perfect spot for a dinner and afterwards game night. Pool, saunas, lounging is ideal for warm days. And the theatre....the best place to watch the Giants win!!!

Villa Montebella was a great location for our team's offsite meeting this year. It's close to wineries, and offers some of the nicest views of Glenn Ellen that one could ask for. The kitchen is top-notch and we made great use of the hot tub, saunas and pool. The managment of Villa Montebella was very helpful and extremely easy to work with. I look forward to our next visit.
