This is prestigious, historic villa going back to the 13th century and lying in a beautiful spot on the edge of a tiny medieval village. The villa is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves in the Chianti Classico area, half-way between Florence and Siena, which are both about 30 minutes away by car. From the large entrance gate you come into the private car-park within a nice italian garden, where on one side you will find an irregular-shaped swimming-pool (8x16m). The interiors are typical of the old aristocratic villas with attractive vaulted ceilings and frescoed walls. The furnishings are of a very high standard and are mostly antiques.
Outside there is a balcony, which can be accessed from two bedrooms, running along almost the entire length of the villa, and from here you can enjoy the most beautiful view of the tuscan countryside. The villa is equipped with dishwasher, washing-machine and dryer, two safe-deposit boxes, telephone, broadband internet connection, barbecue and private parking. Close by you will also find some very good restaurants offering excellent, authentic tuscan cuisine. The attractive town of San Donato in Poggio, which has shops and restaurants, is about 2 kms distant, and Tavarnelle Val di Pesa is about 6 kms away and has a well-stocked supermarket and all other services you might need.

Very clean and a nice space. Easy drive to the plaza. Overall, a very convenient place to stay in Sonoma.
We had a few issues with the woman overseeing the apartment from slow response time to claiming we paid partially and now owe additional funds. All eventually got sorted out and we enjoyed our stay. The apartment is beautiful and well located. It's a shame we felt uncomfortable with how we were treated.
We loved staying at Mark & Bonnie's place in Sonoma. Everything was great and perfectly located for our needs. Fall in Sonoma is beautiful in it's own right, but this quiet getaway allowed us to enjoy it even more.
My husband and I stayed at Lomita for our one year anniversary and had a fabulous time!
Great location as a home base for wine country excursions. Near the Historic Sonoma Town Square by way of the town's paved walking path - perfect spot to enjoy good restaurants, scenic hiking, local wineries and cycling. Just a few miles from the Russian River so kayaking is an easy option as well. Gateway to the Sonoma Valley, short drive up to the Alexander Valley, Napa Valley and Carneros Wine Region. Your own 1 bedroom place, with a furnished kitchen, wi-fi, a designated parking spot and a private back patio perfect for starting the day with your morning coffee. It looks just like the pictures!
Our stay at Rialto was brilliant from beginning to end. We especially appreciated Judit assistance in meeting us to hand over the keys she went much further than required and gave us lots of advice on our stay and how best to get back to the airport. This was fantastic as we had no idea without this advice .The accommodation was ,clean comfortable and centrally located. We felt secure and had easy access to market Rialto bridge and short walk to San Marco square. the apartment was attractive with plenty of bedding and towels ..The washing machine and dishwasher were a bonus. The apartment was large,spacious attractively decorated and made our visit to this beautiful location all the more enjoyable. We thank Judit Mark and Bonnie for such great stay in Venice
