Warm and cozy villa in a super convenient location!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Apr 1, 2016

“The villa was beary perfect in every way! We knew it was going to be a special place from the moment we pulled up to the iron gate and drove through the grape vines down the front driveway of the property. When I walked through the front door, the home’s interior took my breath away. Everything was perfect. It was modern, yet had a very cozy and warm feeling. We had a lot of fun playing some of the games that were available for us while sitting near the toasty electric fireplace. The home was fully stocked with everything we needed and more. There were even fun toys and a highchair for our baby bear! Not only did we have a beautifully decorated dining room to eat in, we had a second option to dine outside in the back yard, which had breathtaking views! It was nice to sit amongst the fresh herbs and flowers or by the pool looking out at the hills and trees.. The location of the property is quite convenient and close to everything. There were many walkable shops, restaurants and wineries with tastings right across the street to enjoy. Anyone who has a chance to stay at this romantic (and it was very romantic!) 5 star villa hosted by a 5 star owner would be very lucky and have a guaranteed relaxing time. Erika, thank you for such a truly wonderful stay!”

Property was beautiful and clean and exactly as the pictures show it!

  • 5 of 5

Erika said we don't need to bring anything other than our clothes and personal items. She was right!

Coffee and tea stocked with the Keurig. Bath towels, pool towels and even white terry cloth robes!

We had 3 couples and the house was perfect for us. We used the pool, hot tub and Baci court. Didn't have enough time to enjoy the fire pit, but we will be back!

Thanks Erika, loved it!!!!

Fantastic property for a Wine Country Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a long holiday weekend in the wine country with friends. Villa Ticino was the perfect property for our visit - so well-appointed, spacious, great indoor and outdoor gathering spaces, and wonderful location. The outdoor living space is beyond amazing. We enjoyed coffee outdoors in the morning taking in the view, had dinners on the patio, relaxed in the pool, took in all the beautiful landscaping. Highly recommend!

Amazing time spent at Villa Ticino!!

  • 5 of 5

Three couples visited Villa Ticino during August 19 -26, 2017 and the Villa exceeded all our expectations! The photos on the website are lovely, however actually seeing the Villa and its gardens in person was breathtaking. We enjoyed our time on the deck each morning drinking coffee and watching the lovely mountains appear as the fog burned away. Afternoons were spent in and around the pool, playing bocce ball or just lounging within the colorful gardens and enjoying the peaceful mountain view. Evenings were spent grilling out and eating under the grape arbor, then ending each night at the fire pit. We were close to Sonoma wineries, NAPA wineries were a 30 minute drive "over the hill", shopping, the Schultz museum and a wonderful Italian eatery across the street (the ravioli was incredible). We were extremely impressed with all the amenities available to us that came with the Villa and thoroughly enjoyed eating the garden fruits & vegetables the entire week. Most of all... we enjoyed returning to the Villa after our daily outings, as it truly encouraged relaxation! Thank you Erika for allowing us to experience a "home away from home" at Villa Ticino, as a fabulous week was had by all!!!

Perfect accommodations for our family

  • 5 of 5

Villa Ticino was wonderful for our family of five. The location is perfect for Vinyard hopping and an Oasis to come back to at the end of the day!

We cooked and ate outdoors every night and enjoyed the fire pit at the end of the day. Erika provides everything anyone could want and we can honestly say it was one of the best vacations we've ever had!

Beautiful property in a perfect setting.

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week enjoying our friends and family vacation at Villa Ticino. The home was well equipped and well maintained. It's like having your very own vineyard for your stay. Erika was so thoughtful and helpful with our requests. Highly recommend staying and don't forget to dine at cafe citti for an amazing meal and literally across the street
