About Donna Merideth

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

Why Donna Merideth chose Healdsburg

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.

What makes this villa unique

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.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. I know your life is very busy. Even though I wasn't able to meet you in person I feel like we got to know each other through our emails, calls and texts. I look forward to your next visit to Villa Amici. We have plenty of time but let me know when you are ready to firm up the dates. In the meantime, let me know if you want my input when you are planning your Italy trip.
Cheers!

Magic in Healdsburg

  • 5 of 5
We are experienced VRBO travelers and this has to be one of the best experiences that we have ever had. Start with a magical property sitting right in the vineyards. Now add a pizza oven, bocce ball, a wonderful back patio area and that is before you get to the home itself. The house was warm, inviting, very nicely decorated and gave you the feel that you were staying in someone's home. The kitchen and pizza oven were equipped with everything for the gourmet. The owners were wonderful and responded quickly to any question or request. We particularly enjoyed the morning we spent in the vineyard with our host.
We only stayed 4 nights but we will definitely return for a longer stay.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5
Villa Amici was an excellent choice for us (2 couples). We have been to Sonoma several times before but this was definitely the best place we have stayed. The villa had everything we needed and then some. We cooked dinner there 5 out of 7 nights using the well equipped kitchen and had a real treat using the pizza oven one evening. It was so wonderful sitting outside looking at the beautiful yard and vineyard every night. The bocce court proved to be great fun as well. We also enjoyed being able to walk to a winery for an evening event. The owner, Donna was great and answered texts very quickly. They also make incredible wine! We would highly recommend this villa and will definitely be back at some point.

Owner's Response: I am thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your week at Villa Amici and that you took advantage of the kitchen and pizza oven. Thanks for the nice comments on our wine as well. We are only hobby winemakers but we have leaned a lot over the years from some of our friends that we consider to be some of the best winemakers in Sonoma County. I hope to see you back at Villa Amici.

This is a great place

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at "the villa" in early August 2014. Its photos and descriptions don't do it justice. Yes, the photos are nice. But being there is even nicer. Two weeks after being there, my wife and I just go into conversation about what we'd be doing if we were at "the villa" right now.

The house is set up for renters. Donna is a great host. She takes you through everything. There are books for local restaurants, best wineries and other things to do.

The backyard is a dream. From the first steps out the door onto the terrace, under the pergola to the bocci court and vegetable gardens that you can pick from, all your concerns about the rest of the world melt away. This is a very special place in a very special location surrounded by vineyards.

I was a bit concerned about staying outside of Healdsburg (this was our fourth trip there and we like to be able to walk to restaurants and tasting rooms), but "the villa" is only 10 minutes from the Plaza. And there are numerous wineries within walking distance from the house. And Jimtown Market is a mile and a half a way, great place for breakfast or lunch. This was a great change from being in town.

Donna was always just a text or phone call away. We asked a couple of questions and she always got right back to us.

There is no bathtub in the house, if that concerns you. The kitchen is great. We stayed in and cooked one night. The huge dining room is fantastic and goes right out onto the terrace.

This is truly a special place, especially for a small group. We shared the house with one other couple. If you're a music junky, you'll love the huge record and CD collection at your disposal.

The house is configured and decorated like a villa you'd find in Tuscany. It's a great rental. I hope we return next year.

Superb home!

My family and I spent the weekend in Headlesburg. We didn't want to leave the house! We made pizzas, played bocce ball and had a great time. Accomodations are terrific. A real gem. We will definitely go back.

Beautiful Home With All Amenities

  • 5 of 5
This property is absolutely gorgeous. Our family of six stayed here over a long weekend during the Dry Creek Passport Weekend. It's a wonderful place to relax, enjoy the scenery and be together in a quiet setting with a view. This home has all amenities key to having a relaxed time during your vacation. Gourmet kitchen, tasteful decor, nice sleeping arrangements, gorgeous master bedroom and bath, outdoor pizza oven, fire pit and bocce ball court. The weather was gorgeous, so we spent most of our time outdoors. We would love to return next year.
