|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Take a break from the hustle bustle of everyday living and enjoy a few nights at our relaxing and peaceful vacation home. Villa Serena is located in prestigious 'Mission Highlands' just above the historic Sonoma Plaza. From the moment you begin the drive up High Road you will begin your journey into another world.
This luxury private residence, surrounded by majestic oaks, offers privacy with vistas over the Sonoma valley to Mt. Tamalpais in Marin County. Our home has been recently decorated and outfitted with stylish, yet comfortable furnishings. All rooms have cathedral ceilings, are filled with light and have stunning views of the hills or natural gardens. Relax in the warm, inviting living room with its stone wood-burning fireplace.
Dine in the solarium dining room, on the spacious view deck or around the pool - the choice is yours!!!! The fully equipped kitchen is open to the dining room and offers additional dining options. A large master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, as well as the cozy guest bedroom and bath, have luxurious bedding and linens.
The open den offers additional sleeping for two on the queen sleeper/sofa. The glorious pool, in its lush garden setting, beckons you on warm days and nights.
Once you've experienced a stay at Villa Serena we're certain you'll want to return again and again.
We purchased our Sonoma vacation home in 2009. The minute we walked in and saw the view and experienced the calming effect of the property we knew it was for us. We have spent the several years making improvements, painting, furnishing and turning the house into our 'home away from home'. The town of Sonoma is so close to San Francisco and yet feels like you are in another country. It reminds us of parts of Italy with the rolling hills filled with vineyards. We love Villa Serena and have enjoyed the times we've spent here. We hope you will find the serenity that the name implies.
The Owner purchased this house in 2008
It is only minutes from the historic Sonoma Plaza yet it has the feeling of being very secluded. We have been coming to Sonoma for the past 30 years and have stayed in many of the hotel resorts in the area. Now we have our own 'resort' and can come anytime we want.
One of the benefits of Villa Serena is it's location in the hills just above the Plaza. It is in an exclusive residential neighborhood with views of the valley. It is very private and the setting feels like you could be in Tuscany. The house has a wonderful flow to it and it is perfect for couples as well as a get-away for friends.
As proud owners of Villa Serena we would like to share with you the beautiful, heartfelt testimonials from our many guests from all over the world who have written in our guestbook about their stay in our magical retreat. Enjoy!
“Our five day stay at Villa Serena was surreal! Indeed, it was more beautiful than any of the photos we had seen online! Being able to dine on the deck with candlelight, enjoying tranquility, wine, and gazing at the stars was the perfect end to each day.” - Tami
The place was wonderful. A beautiful home, very comfortable with beautiful views! Loved it!
We loved our stay. The view was amazing and the house beautiful and comfortable. We wished we could stay longer. The owner made us feel very welcome.
Beautiful property just minutes up the hill from Sonoma Square. Loved the peaceful evenings and mornings . Very nicely maintained and clean. Owners were lovely and very helpful with suggestions and very well organized with visit information. Would recommend for a group of girlfriends, two couples, or newly weds that enjoy the beautiful surroundings and the close proximity to the town.
Thank you for sharing this lovely home!
We stayed at Villa Serena in October 2015 and had a great time. The house has some wonderful features such as an open dining room to the patio and one of the best views of the valley you will experience. It only took 6 minutes to drive from the house to Sonoma's downtown. It is a very quiet and peaceful place to enjoy the view and fine wine.
My husband treated me to a weekend in Napa for my 30th birthday - we chose to stay in Sonoma and couldn't be more pleased with Villa Serena! Jo was VERY helpful and the house was very clean, homey and I cannot say enough about the views! If you are looking to have a relaxing weekend - definitely do not overlook this place! I will say that the pictures online do the house very little justice. It is SO much better in person. I hope to come back again! Thank you, Jo for your hospitality and the bottle of wine upon our arrival!
Our family enjoyed every minute at Villa Serena! The home is extremely well appointed and while my husband and I enjoyed the view, our daughters enjoyed the pool. The view is spectacular any time of the day and reminded us of Tuscany. The sweeping patio was the perfect place for breakfast and morning coffee and it even inspired me to host our final dinner at sunset - best dinner ever! The home was clean, well stocked with lush towels and beddings, and very well maintained. The location of Villa Serena is perfect - it is a quick drive from The Plaza and easily accessible to all wine country routes. Thank you, Jo, for being a pleasure to work with leading up to our stay and for your gracious hospitality. We can't wait for our return visit!
