We have always loved Sonoma County, and Sonoma in particular because it really feels unspoiled.
Our outdoor space includes a concrete table for 10 shaded by olive trees, and a built-in charcoal barbecue. There is a bocce court in the middle of the olive orchard and a ping pong table in the studio. Sonoma Square, which is close by, is filled with great restaurants and shopping. Lovall Valley Road is one of the best bicycling routes in the Sonoma area. We have six hybrid bicycles, helmets and locks for your use during your stay.
Lovely, comfortable, and fun house perfectly located just a few minutes from the Sonoma Square. Easy drive, bike, or even walk to nearby wineries, walking paths, and restaurants. Well-equipped kitchen for meals at the house and unbeatable entertainment options. We could not have been happier with our stay! Very highly recommend.
3 generations gathered to celebrate Christmas. The house was warm and inviting with all necessary equipment to cook appropriately for the holidays. The games room was utilized by all with foosball appearing to be the chosen game. Proximity to Sonoma Square was as advertised, the bikes were as well. Would like to retrurn here for warmer weather...to swim and lounge by the pool and olive trees would be very relaxing. Thanks to the owners for allowing us to enjoy their wine country home.
We had 3 couples staying at the house and all felt very comfortable with the space and amenities provided. Kitchen had everything needed for cooking big morning breakfasts before heading out for all day activities. The house and grounds were clean and well maintained. We only wish we were able to use the outside activities, but time of year didn't allow use of pool. The location feels very secluded, even though only about a mile or 2 from Sonoma Square. Lot of wineries, tasting rooms and restaurants very close by. Enjoyed an evening of singing Karaoke and playing foosball in the studio. Would highly recommend for visiting the Sonoma area!
This was our second stay at the villa and we enjoyed it more than the first time, even though much of the weekend included rain. There is ample gathering space to accommodate a large group inside, including a separate building with a ping pong table. We had a local chef and his sous chef come in and cook a 5 course dinner for us. The large dinning table and multiple table settings provided by the house made our meal very comfortable and elegant.
This our 3rd time staying at this lovely Lovall Valley house and my girls friends & I just love it. The beautiful surroundings make it so relaxing. We also walked/biked to town and local wineries... very close and easy. You feel you're really part of Sonoma. And, the owner is very responsive and helpful! No issues whatsoever. Highly recommend !!!
We had a wonderful time at this beautiful Sonoma home. We loved the location close to the town square and lots of restaurants and wineries. On weekends when things were more crowded we could have a great time without venturing too far. The property was beautiful with a wonderful pool and great areas for dining and relaxing. We especially enjoyed the bocce ball court - and had many fun tournaments. And the bikes/helmets were an added and much appreciated bonus.
The separate casita was especially nice for visiting couples to have their own privacy. We cooked at home most nights and the kitchen was well stocked.
We will definitely be back in the future!
Wine tasting at premier wineries are located within biking/walking distance including Ravenswood, Buena Vista, Sebastiani and Gundlach Bundschu
