Property description

The Dolcevita Villa is nestled among mature oak trees in a bucolic setting near the quaint Village of Glen Ellen, which is one of the premiere winery towns in the very heart of Jack London's Valley of the Moon.

This Tuscan style home, built in 2006, is elegantly and comfortably furnished with two bedrooms and two full baths on two separate floors for maximum privacy. Dolcevita, which means 'the sweet life' in Italian, boasts rich wood floors, king size & queen size beds, black granite gourmet kitchen, whirlpool tub, and spacious walk in shower.

The villa is an exclusive and romantic retreat with views of the nearby hills, and is less than one mile to the historic village of Glen Ellen, where there is fine dining, as well as some of the best wineries in the region. Morton Warm Springs swimming pool and mineral baths is three miles from the site. Jack London's State Park is two miles away with London’s museum, abundant hiking trails, the Wolf House Ruins, and redwood picnic grounds. Panoramic views of the Valley of the Moon can be seen from the park. Benziger winery is on the way up to this mountaintop vista and is considered one of the most beautiful wineries in Sonoma and offers a lovely tram tour of the vineyards.

Horse back riding and biking from the town of Glen Ellen to the regional park and beyond are awe-inspiring. Spend the day wine tasting, hiking and exploring Wine Country or lovely Marin, or stay at home in your private paradise, sipping wine under stars. There is wonderful shopping and entertainment in Jack London Village on a creek side setting, and 10 minutes away in historic Sonoma with its lovely town square filled with renowned restaurants and shops. Indulge yourselves in great food, luxury accommodations and beautiful, natural surroundings.

Enjoy the sweet life in this private, luxurious & magical setting.

'I firmly believe, from what I have seen, that this is the chosen spot of all this earth as far as Nature is concerned.'
Luther Burbank, regarding Sonoma County, 1875
