About the owner: Donna Dell is a retired employment lawyer and former Labor Commissioner of California. Having a love of travel since her early career as an international airline employee, Donna always found herself attracted to northern California's rugged coastline and picturesque hillsides, reminicient of her family's medieval village in southern Italy.
Why the Owner Chose Sonoma, CA, USA:
Having shared my Irish Beach vacation home on the Mendocino coast for more than twenty years with return guests, including many 2nd generations, Carneros seemed the perfect addition. The convenience of its location to San Francisco, Napa and Sonoma, along with the variety of activities available to all ages, prompted me to start looking in the Carneros region about 8 years ago. The moment I finally walked into this house I knew I'd found my Casacalenda!
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Three days in the wine country followed by 3 days overlooking the ocean in beautiful Mendocino County make the perfect California vacation! Please visit VRBO property #275652 to view Donna's Irish Beach vacation rental.
