Half Baths1
Space 4,000 sq. ft.
Property type chateau / country house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Chateau / Country House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

We are located down a quiet country lane. Birds abound, flowers of many types and colors appear all year round, and are especially beautiful in the Spring. The pinot noir vineyard is ever changing and the wonderful wine worth, the work we put into maintaining and growing our grapes.

Our 52-tree olive grove is planted with 5 types of Italian varietals and the organic extra virgin olive oil is our pride and joy.

There is nothing so relaxing as a day by the pool, on a perfectly warm day, followed by a relaxing spin in the spa and a bbq as the sun goes down.

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Sonoma County

We love the ambience of this small town with all the amenities of a larger city. Great restaurants, fantastic weather-year round. Simpler unhurried lifestyle, wonderful art community located in one of the premier wine countries in the world.

Beautiful house, very happy with choice!

  • 5 of 5

The house was more beautiful in person. Very spacious and nearby downtown Sonoma.

The master bedroom was absolutely gorgeous and overlooking the pool and hot tub. (which we used every night of our stay!) We loved it.

Beautiful kitchen- loved the high end appliances (ex. Wolf range stove and french presses)

I loved my experience at the house and it was the perfect size for 12 people, we did not feel too cramped at all. Everyone was very comfortable.

I definitely will be going back to this beautiful home again in the future!

This house is all and more than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

Ruby arrived before we did for the walk through. She was more than accommodating. The house was clean and the property is beautiful! It was equipped with everything that we needed. The hot tub was a hit and there were plenty of lounges by the pool. It was perfect for our extended family. If your in the area this home is fantastic!

Wonderful place for a group

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion over the New Year at this lovely house. It proved to be the sweet spot for group activities in the house and for day trips. The house itself is large and beautifully redone with excellent space for several couples and some kids. The living and dining areas are large and suited for group activities, with a well equipped kitchen and a huge dining table for everyone to gather around. Outside there is plenty of space for eating with lovely views of vineyards, orchards and the mountains in the distance. The location is well positioned to take advantage of nearby Sonoma town shops and restaurants and it is convenient to do things in both Sonoma and Napa valleys. We were welcomed by the owner and were able to really enjoy our time together in beautiful surroundings.

Lovely home for a couples trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Rancho Paradiso in Oct. 2014. This home was perfect for our three couples group as the layout has 3 master suites. It did not disappoint! It is spacious and well equipped. There is plenty of secluded areas you may go for quite time, as well as group areas that accommodated us all together comfortably. It is quite a spectacular home - even better than the photo images. The hot tub was a fun time at the end of every day!

Michael, the owner, was very pleasant to work with regarding our reservations, and eager to share recommendations and answer any questions I had prior to our arrival.

Thank you for opening your home to travelers looking for a lovely place to stay! We prefer renting a residence instead of a hotel. This was a perfect experience!

Beautiful, serene, and perfect accommodations

  • 5 of 5

The home is gorgeous. The pictures do not do it justice. We were met by Michael, the owner, who gave us a wonderful tour of the huge bedrooms and stunning bathrooms, the gourmet kitchen with both a breakfast room and a very large banquet size table for dining, the living room with the endless comfy leather sectional couch and last but not least, the amazing grounds including the very large swimming pool and heated spa. As we gathered at the dining table with our family and friends for a relaxing dinner of mussels, chicken, roasted homegrown vegetables and great wine, I felt like we were in the movie "The Big Chill". The location is wonderful. You can go to Sonoma or Napa for wine tasting, shopping and eating or stay on the grounds and enjoy the serenity of the vineyards and mountain view. Make sure you do allow plenty of time during your stay to absorb and enjoy the home and the grounds. I wish I had a couple more days to do just that!

Owner's Response: Marylou, I never properly thanked you for your great review. The water is now perfect. It was great meeting you and your hubby. I hope you guys will come back. If you do I will give you a $100 per night discount of the $1,295 as I have raised the rates to cover my efforts. Still some good weekends left this summer. Cheers and good luck to you both, Michael
