About Adriana Villegas

My parents bought this ranch when I was 24 years old,

we have a lot of memories of my family and friends.

My Father use to have 'Italian nights' as he use to call them, in the main Patio.

We had great times and my mother enjoy all about it cooking wonderful food for our guests.

They always have taught me to share the best we have so it will come back to us.

I decided to restore

and remodel the house and find all the original stone walls.

We decided to share our vacation home and enjoy the beautiful view, the charm of the house and the unforgettable Fredericksburg.

We hope you give us the opportunity to share this country house with you.

Adriana Villegas purchased this chateau / country house in 1998

Why Adriana Villegas chose Texas Hill Country

IT IS RURAL AND URBAN!!!

The road less traveled rarely disappoints. Venture down one, and you will discover the pastoral beauty of a country living.

From the porch of a lovingly restored farmhouse, all seems right with the world.

it is rural, urban and unique.....

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We are located on the middle of Fredericksburg main steet and '290 wine road', which makes it perfect and unique

Experience the opportunity of the hill country views and relaxing atmosphere.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house as a girls' weekend to celebrate my mother's 70th birthday, and it was perfect! The location of the house is ideal....about 6 miles from downtown Fredricksburg, right along the 290 winery corridor and less than a mile from the Wildseed Farm. The house is more impressive than the pictures illustrate. It's a combination of rustic and modern, very peaceful. Adrianna was responsive, and made the whole experience very easy. If we're ever back in that part of the state, we will definitely consider renting again.

Great Hill Country Setting

  • 5 of 5

We found the property amazing, the location very convenient to both Fredericksburg & Luckenbach, the property manager very attentive. The setting is perfect for families and the outdoor amenities are suitable for any sized gathering...so invite your friends to visit while you stay at Constantine. Essentially the perfect country setting within 5 minutes from the hot spots in town and the various wineries along 290.

Wonderfully Peaceful and Charmingly Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Constantine, -- This is our group of 4 couples second stay at Constantine and we plan to vacation there again next year. We love the beautiful character and decorations of this classic stone farmhouse that is so inviting and peaceful. Surrounded by acreage that comes with a barn equipped for entertaining, dining, or just escaping from the crowd; we could not have asked for more in a vacation home. Also, we enjoyed watching the Belted Galloway (Oreo Cattle) cows and calves feeding on the hillside. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your home Adriana... we can't wait to book it again on our groups next vacation trip. PS.... See you again next March during the Luckenbach Annual Chili Competition and Music Festival. Mike and Terri...

Nice property but too many issues for the price

  • 2 of 5

Charming farmhouse, tastefully decorated on large piece of property. However, too many issues arose during our stay which were brought to the owner's attention. We stayed over the NewYear's weekend with a group of 10. Being that it was NewYears and several men were in our party, they wanted to watch football as well as the many other celebrations on TV during this time. But, there was no cable or direct TV (even though direct tv is advertised in their description) to watch LIVE TV, so we had to rely on WIFI to get a minimum of streaming channels. Unfortunately, the WIFI did not work over the 3 days that we stayed (wifi would freeze the program every 2-3 seconds), so no TV! When I brought this to the owner's attention, they kept giving me different streaming accounts to try and then told me "we were their last weekend and it worked fine" as if it to imply I was making it up.

Other issues:

1) Beware that the 4th bedroom is the guest house separate from main house, the room is tiny and fits a full size bed and that's it. The door practically hits the bed when you open it. This room is a huge fire hazard, it did not have a door knob to get out from the inside. To get out of the room, my parents had to call us in the main house to come open the door for them. What if something happened in the middle of the night and you could not get out? The safety of this room is unacceptable. The 3rd bathroom is also in this room, the shower trickles a tiny amount of water.

2) Sleeping for 10 is a bit misleading. The 9th/10th bed is a twin bed/ trundle combo that we could not find the mattress for and when it was pulled out, it blocked access to the closet. It is also located in a room with a queen size bed so whomever sleeps here will be sharing the space with the people in the queen size bed.

3)Dirty bed sheets with stains. Informed owner, and was told there were fresh linens in a closet. So why didn't the bed have fresh linens to begin with, why did I have to change them???

4)Dog poop on patio next to grill. Trying to grill and we had to remove it ourselves and it was unsanitary. Owner's response was they didn't have a dog, again as if I'm making it up.

5)Overall cleanliness of the place? Wasps on floors and in crevices. We paid a cleaning fee but not sure that a professional cleaning crew actually comes in.

6) Some issues addressed in previous reviews had not been taken care of, such as the stains on couch and door that does not lock .

7)No toiletries

Owner's Response: Dear Mona: Thank you for all your detailed comments. I wanted you to know that I have taken care of all of them. New door knobs, New fire pit, I have changed the WiFi company which led me to a huge issue with your stay. The first day you arrived and called me, I really thought you didn't have more issues with the TV, never though it was the WiFi... The thing is that you call me with all the issues 2 days after your arrival and, since it is a little town and we were 4 hours to New Years Eve, I couldn't help you as I wish I could. I really wish I can have the opportunity to have you back at Constantine, I'm sure everything will nice. I'll be looking forward to it!! Have a wonderful 2017
