Why Darlene chose Sonoma County

This property was originally built by a Swiss-Italian stone mason - hence the massive stone pool and other remnants of his design. We extensively rennovated the property while keeping true to his vision.

What makes this villa unique

Upon enterring Villa Terra Bella you will imediately feel relaxed and like you enterred another world. Palm trees, vineyard, stone and Italian architecture create a feeling of old world hollywood luxury. Experience the life at a multimillion dollar wine country property at an affordable price!

The property has three unique living spaces to allow privacy and also options for diverse groups.

The hobby vineyard was donated to Windsor Vineyard Academy in 2010. The vines are over 100 years old and the wine is superb! Guests receive a complimentary bottle of the estate old vine zinfandel wine and can purchase additional bottles, proceeds go to the school.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted you to know how much we all enjoyed staying at VTB!



It was a blessing as the "Oasis" we could all retreat to and enjoy

during a wonderfully busy wedding week.



Thank you for a great place to enjoy a special event in our lives.

A Perfect Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for my son's wedding and stayed at the beautiful Villa Terra Bella with new in laws and other family members. It was the perfect set up for a large crowd. The pool was amazing and the way the house is set up gave people enough privacy with lots of family gathering in the kitchen. We thought the location was just so easy to hit the wineries and not far from our wedding venues. Just can not say enough nice things about the house, about the ease of which we communicated with Darlene. Villa Terra Bella we will try our hardest to come back again.

Good as it gets!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a four day adult weekend at Villa Terra Bella. The weekend was fantastic. Great property, great location, endless amenities. This property and location speaks for itself, so I must emphasize what a pleasure it was working with Darlene to plan our weekend. She is very professional, accommodating and reliable. She is also readily available at all times, and was prompt to respond to any and all of our needs. Let me also note that I worked off of her list of recommendations available on her website. We arranged for Robert Negoesco of Eli Grace Catering to prepare a private dinner in the Villa one evening. He much like Darlene was great to work with, prompt, efficient, precise and reliable. He designed and executed the perfect family style dinner party for eight people that we enjoyed from beginning to end.

May I also point out that the fresh flowers and bottle of wine on the dining room table was a very nice touch to welcome us to the property. I highly recommend Villa Terra Bella, Darlene and her associates. Thank you for everything, I hope to return soon!

Words cannot describe how perfect

  • 5 of 5

Villa Terra Bella was the perfect location for our small, intimate wedding and week long stay with our best friends. I arranged everything sight unseen from Ohio through Darlene, the home owner, and the wonderful wedding planner she recommended, Kathy of Coppedge House Weddings & Events (highly recommend!!). This location, our wedding day, and the entire week could not have been more perfect. Everything exceeded our expectations. Darlene was so helpful to me throughout the six months of planning. She really did much more than rent her home to us. Our photographer, Deanna of Deanna Kay Photography, also did an amazing job.

First of all the main house and cottage were just perfect for us and our guests. We spent most of our time sight seeing during the day and then we spent our evenings around the large dining table inside or outside around the pool. The outside was fantastic with the outdoor kitchen, heat lamps, lighting, radio/speaker system, hot tub, large table and plenty of seating. This is where you want to be at the end of the day!

There was plenty of room throughout the house, especially the large master bedroom in the back, which held all of us getting ready for our big day (makeup artist, photographer, friends). The patio off this master was also the perfect place for us to have a cup of coffee together each morning before joining the group (having its own Keurig machine, kcups, creamer, and cups was a really nice touch.) The other bedrooms were also lovely as was the cottage. We watched TV only one night and the living room was also perfect and comfy for a large group.

The property was just stunning. We stood in the center of the small vineyard to exchange our vows and this was even better than what we envisioned. We also purchased a case of the wine made here and it is very good! The landscaping, palm trees, and entire pool area were just gorgeous. It really is the perfect place to have your own little retreat yet be so close to Windsor Square, Healdsburg, several amazing local vineyards, and the highway. I highly recommend this very special place!

Perfect place for a large group

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place and so perfectly located. A couples long weekend get away for 12 adults and we had a blast. The hot tub and grill area allowed us to prepare and eat outdoors and then enjoy the hot tub. My friends and I visited for the Wine Road tour and I have to say, having a super nice place to come back to each night was a huge plus. Everyone had a great time and so enjoyed the house and cottage. We will definitely hope to stay here again. Darlene is so accommodating and always available should you need anything. Can't wait for another trip!

Villa Terra Bella

  • 5 of 5

Thirteen family members, plus a dog, just returned from an amazing vacation week at Villa Terra Bella. Each member of our family, from our two year old granddaughter to my 74 year old husband (and all those in between) had a wonderful time. I had expected to do lots of day trips but people were so content to hang out at the pool and on the rest of the property that we rarely left.

Darlene has a lovely estate that was matched by her gracious hospitality. Prior to arrival, I mentioned my two sons were allergic to feathers. Darlene rearranged bedding to make sure their rooms were feather-free. And when I mentioned we couldn't locate pot holders and large cooking/serving spoons late one afternoon, the very next morning we found a bag at the door with lots of potholders and new spoons.

We appreciate Darlene's responsiveness to our needs and the beautiful property, which together provided us all with a wonderful vacation. We are already talking about our next family vacation at Bella!!

Gorgeous New Year's Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Villa Terra Bella was a stunning property and perfect for a three day/night getaway to celebrate New Year's Eve. We had 6 couples, and the space was perfect for a group our size. It was wonderful space for cooking, sitting by the fire, and relaxing in the hot tub. Darlene was fantastic and very easy to work with, and her recommendations for a NYE chef (Maria Vieagas) and other activities were absolutely perfect! (I highly recommend Maria and her team as well!) Tons of lovely details about the property and thoughtful touches for our stay (beach towels waiting by the door, a bottle of wine with a note, etc.). I'll be going back again!
