About Villa Terra Bella
Just a small business owner in wine country
Villa Terra Bella purchased this Villa in 2017
Why Villa Terra Bella chose Windsor
This property was originally built by a Swiss-Italian stone mason - hence the massive stone pool and other remnants of his design. We extensively renovated the property while keeping true to his vision.

Beautiful property, great for groups, but a bit untidy, and some fire risk
The property was beautiful, and it was a great size for 9 people. The guest house is comfortable and versatile. There are many beautiful trees and plants around the pool and house.
It's a bit out of the way for Napa wineries, though not excessively. Several Sonoma wineries were nearby.
On the negative side, the pool/patio area was untidy, and the hot tub didn't heat. Also, we were forced to evacuate and lose one of our rental days due to a wildfire, so it may not be worth the risk during fire season (esp. with the vegetation mentioned above).
We had a wonderful stay at the Villa! The kitchen was a perfect area for group dinners and the house had everything we needed. The location was great! Very easy to get to Sonoma/Napa but also local wineries close by. We would definetly stay again!
Beautiful grounds, but needs some tweaking
Overall, we enjoyed our time at Villa Terra Bella. The grounds were indeed beautiful, but not very well kept -- many weeds, much debris on the grounds, lots of wear and tear and plenty of deferred maintenance. Most are simple fixes, but issues existed nonetheless. The house, though very much outdated, handled our crew of 12 just fine with regard to space, but every one of us had the same complaints as those I have listed above.
Memorable Weekend in Sonoma Wine Country with friends!
Me and a group of 11 close friends recently stayed at Villa Terra Bella for the weekend and were extremely impressed and very very very happy with the owners and the Property Managers David and Ali they are super sweet and truly a pleasure. The photos are 100% accurate and if anything the home actually looks better in person, its truly one of a kind, unique home that was super clean and quirky. The pool area was beautiful and very clean, Patio furniture was also in great condition, the pool area was definitely clean. The Hot Tub and BBQ also worked perfectly fine. The fountain at the front of the house was indeed working (not something we would of cared about if it wasn't working) and it was clean. The linens throughout the house were clean and ready for use. The guest Cottage was spacious, clean, and was a great experience for my friends who slept in it. I was also very impressed with the kitchen supplies, pots, pans, BBQ Grill Supplies, Baking pans, cutlery, large bowls for salads and marinating BBQ meat, soup ladles, marinating brush and soo much more. Thank you to the owners and to Ali and David for everything, you were amazing the entire weekend and ensured we had privacy, and if we needed anything it was great knowing you are under 15 minutes away from the property, we appreciated this. I also wanted to give you a shout out for the Lemons, Bread, and local cheese, thank you so much! We will definitely be back!
Great family time at Villa Terra Bella
We are four childhood friends who are now married with with children ranging in age from newborn to 17, and were looking for a weekend getaway, where we could just be together at a property. Villa Terra Bella (VTB) was just the place.
The main house had a great living area and dining room. Besides the great Viking kitchen, which we used to prepare each meal, the dining room has a great long dining table, so that we could all sit together for meals. The main house also had plenty of beds/sofa beds and the two sets of two bedrooms were apart to give space between families/couples. The cottage also allowed each family the comfort and space needed.
The pool and hot tub area is separated from the main house/cottage and gated. It was perfect. The pool is impeccably clean, large and there are plenty of floating devices. The hot tub (also super clean) gets to hot temperatures very quickly. So, it was easy to get it and use it whenever we wanted. The kids had a great time in the pool.
We really spent all our time between preparing meals in the kitchen, eating in the dining room, kicking back at the pool/hot tub and making s'mores at the fire-pit.
When we arrived everything was very clean and the property manager, Ali, was very helpful and responsive. As the propane tanks (for the BBQ) ran low, she filled them up immediately. As well, as we were cooking in for the weekend, we needed a big stock pot (which was apparently taken unexpectedly). Ali had a new one over in no time. Other than the help we requested, no one else visited the property during our stay (which was mentioned as something that happens on other reviews).
The location of the property is convenient and close to wineries, while still feeling like you are in your own space away from a typical residential area. VTB also has some great tips on where to visit nearby.
It was a great weekend and VTB was just the place for our families.
Graduation Weekend Extraodinaire
I want to extend a warm thank you to Villa Terra Bella for making our family celebration of my daughter's 8th grade promotion and my son's high school graduation possible. We were able to host our visiting family all in one beautiful and spacious compound. Ali, the property manager, even left congratulation balloons and cupcakes for the kids. Our family members are still raving about our time spent at Villa Terra Bella.
