My husband and I bought Villa Amici in 2002 in order to pursue our dream of making wine. The name Villa Amici means 'house of friends' and we have enjoyed sharing this little piece of Tuscany with many of our friends from around the world. Since buying the home, we have added the vineyard, bocce court and pizza oven to enhance the experience. Besides making wine, we enjoy cooking, traveling, fly fishing, discovering new foods and wine.

Donna Merideth purchased this villa in 2002

Villa Amici is located in the heart of Alexander Valley just outside of Healdsburg - a town which continues to grow in terms of fine shopping and dining. Villa Amici is surrounded by large vineyards and is a little piece of heaven. It has a unique casual but sophisticated feel.

Villa Amici includes a wood burning pizza oven and bocce court and is perfect for entertaining. It is located within a mile or two of several wineries including Jordan, Medlock Ames, Alexander Valley Vineyards, Sausal, White Oak, Soda Rock, Hanna, Fieldstone, etc.

Amazing Girls Birthday Getaway!

Villa Amici in pictures is beautiful, but in person its breathtaking! The previous reviews are right on. The kitchen is completely stocked with everything you could possibly need. The beds are comfortable. Loved the master bedroom! The bathrooms are really nice, and from the great kitchen and the beautiful dinning room you have a breathtaking view of the vineyards. They have a great collection of vinyl records/ cds, and they even have tablecloths, candles, etc... to create a beautiful ambiance in or outside. We loved being outdoors, and enjoyed using there outdoor pizza oven, hammock, fire pit and much more. We enjoyed going for a run in the morning, we went biking riding, walked to Soda Rock Winnery, and enjoyed shopping in Healdsburg Square. It was a great pleasure meeting Donna and her husband Eddie. Very sweet couple. We loved it, highly recommend Villa Amici and will definitely be back!

The best place in healdsburg!

We recently rented the house for a weekend with friends. The location is really great, close to everything but still out in with the wineries. The house is impeccably done with guest comfort in mind. We had a 2 year labradoodle with us, and she had so much fun and space to go around. We ended up doing tons of great stuff at the house: bonfire, made pizza, played bocce ball and croquet. This is an amazing location and the host Donna is so accommodating. We loved the place and after a day's stay we were already planning to come back for a next stay. Highly recommended.

Thank you for the nice comments. It certainly sounds like your group enjoyed almost everything Villa Amici has to offer. The one exception might be the hammock...may need to stay longer next time! :)

We have used VRBO for numerous vacations and this one was one of the best! The Villa was beautiful, well equipped and so "homey" that we didn't want to leave. The kitchen was well equipped, the beds very comfortable and the patio so relaxing! The vineyard view was beautiful and we actually cancelled reservations out one night to eat a second night on the patio. The walks we took for exercise around the vineyards were full off beautiful scenery. Donna gave us excellent recommendations for wineries to visit and the restaurants in Healdsburg along with the taxi service were excellent. We WILL be back!!

A Perfect Pre-Harvest Visit

Villa Amici is an amazing place to stay. Donna has added all the right touches to make it feel both homey and like an extravagant getaway. The master suite is glorious, the kitchen is to-die-for, and the backyard truly leaves one speechless (there was an audible gasp from each member of our party upon stepping outside to experience the expanse of grass, the arbor, the beautiful tree, the vineyards, and the mountains beyond). You can see that the owners put a lot of love into the house and into each of their guests. (Our puppy also thought it was the greatest place on earth!) We would absolutely return, without hesitation.

Magnificent Wine Country Villa!

What a fantastic weekend retreat at Villa Amici! The property is beautiful, convenient, comfortable, and family friendly. The villa is absolutely charming with characters and Tuscany feels as if we were vacationing in Italy. The house and backyard were perfect for our party of 4 adults, 1 little girl, and 2 furry babies! We had such a wonderful time we hardly left the property, we spent most of our time in the serene backyard enjoying gorgeous vineyard views and relaxing on the patio (needless to say our dogs thought they were in paradise!). If you love to cook you won’t be disappointed at this villa the kitchen offered everything you need to cook gourmet meals, we took advantage of the outdoor grill, wood burning pizza oven, and the fire pit (our little girl had her first roasted marshmallow here!).
The owners, Donna and Eddie met us at the villa and gave us a personal tour to their property. They are incredibly warm, friendly, and generous hosts. Hospitable touches they welcomed us with a bottle wine from their vineyard and olive oil pressed from olive trees on the property! We were also welcome to enjoy their fresh produce from their vegetable garden!
Our stay far exceeded our expectations, the owners hospitality was first rate!! The description on the website were very accurate and pictures are exactly what the place looks like. Donna was very prompt and responsive prior, during, and after our stay. We couldn’t picked a better place and would absolutely love to stay here again. Highly recommended!

Kim, Vince, and Cody!
Ash, Jen, Mia, and Tasha!

Owner's Response: Kim, Vince, Ash, Jen, Mia (and of course Cody and Tosha) were the perfect guests! They left the house perfect. You could hardly tell anyone had stayed at Villa Amici...let alone two dogs! I look forward to their return to Villa Amici!
