Italian Villa Cottage Near Wineries

House - Entire home/apt · Lovall Valley Loop Rd, Sonoma, CA 95476, United States

The Space

Ten minutes away from Sonoma Plaza, Lovall Valley enjoys a unique geography and has views that extend as far as the San Francisco Bay and the City’s skyline and to the glorious sunsets that light up the sky in the west. Casita Vista Sonoma occupies a charmed setting embraced by 20 acres of pristine terrain. The home reflects the contours of the hills and draws upon the surroundings for inspiration in its architecture and landscaping.

The 1000-square-foot guest house equipped with a kitchenette (with a large fridge microwave, electric stove, granite counters), a living room and gas fireplace. There are two sizable bedrooms and a bathroom with tiled vanity and shower. This comfortable cottage has everything guests or family need, and it enjoys serene views and easy access to the pool (Solar Heated, you're welcome Al Gore) and grounds.

The grounds and entertainment terrace are truly magnificent. But more than simply impressive, they are the soul of the home and a work of art. With its east-west orientation, you can awaken to the sun’s early rays as they bring a sparkle to the dewy lawns and the leaves of the flowering plum trees, creating a fresh and exhilarating start to the day. Hike the hillsides and start to learn the rhythms of the land and discover the fascinating characteristics of the incredible gardens that have been established to highlight the myriad of cactus and succulent plants that complement the native flora. As the day wanes, walk the lighted paths to your favorite spot and marvel as the skies turn from blue to flame in the west. Later, spend time with loved ones and friends, sharing good times under the millions of stars overhead.

  • Downtown Sonoma is cute but this is heavenly. It takes you out of the wine tour hub bub and lets you appreciate incredible beauty and fabulous hospitality. The cottage was perfect for us - two couples - and felt spacious but the real treat is the outdoor living. We sat out by the pool and were greeted by these incredibly colored bluebirds. A walk around the area was wonderful and the best was our host, Kurt. He shared a fabulous bottle with us upon our arrival, suggested a great restaurant and was just fun to chat with. This is convenient to both Napa and Sonoma. We'd love to stay agin!

  • A treasure--the people and the location. Colin, Kurt and Carol are gracious hosts. The valley views are splendid, close to Sonoma village and wineries. Recommended!

  • We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful setting or accommodations in Sonoma! Kurt was a great host, we arrived to a chilled bottle of wine and a wonderful snack of homemade olive oil. I couldn't be happier that we decided to stay here- it definitely exceeded our expectations.

    Can't wait to return in the near future- such a gorgeous area!

  • Just fantastic! House was beautiful. the property it's self it just really wonderful. Kurt was more than accommodating and we had a fantastic time sharing stories and wine with him and his son Collin. We will be back! The guest house was very clean and they have been updating the kitchen for cooking.

  • I'm not sure I can add much to all the positive reviews Kurt/Collin already have on this place. They are top-notch hosts, the location is amazing and the cottage is modern and in immaculate condition. There is nothing like starting your day walking out of the pool house and looking onto the hills of Sonoma. It was a bit too cold to swim, but it was great to look at. On a side note, they were in the process of installing a hot tub - which will make this place a 5+. We'll be back. Thanks for a great week.

  • Excellent stay. If you don't book this you're crazy.

  • This place was AWESOME. Kurt & Carol & their son Collin are fantastic hosts. We were greeted with wine & later brought olive oil w/ bagels for breakfast. Kurt gave us a tour of the grounds, and even gave us our own succulents to take home (he has lots of awesome plants). The cottage is great, and quite spacious. This is a perfect place for those wanting to simply get away & enjoy Sonoma.

    Would highly recommend this place!

  • We had a great time in Sonoma and Napa staying here. The house is beautifully decorated and in a fantastic location. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful and made us feel right at home. The house is in a quiet out of the way location but still a short drive away from downtown Sonoma and wine country. Great for relaxing after a hard day of wine-tasting. Highly recommended.

  • Absolutely WONDERFUL weekend stay near wineries. Kurt was a fantastic host. He graciously greeted us with a bottle of wine and home made olive oil from the olive trees on his property. Only one person from our group had been wine tasting before and Kurt got us set up with a driver that brought us to all the "hard to get into" vineyards. It was a truly fantastic day with great wine and lots of fun stories from each local vineyard. Each night Kurt helped make recommendations for the best local restaurants. We were all from NYC so expectations were high and each dinner/brunch etc was better than the next! It was my birthday weekend and the cottage was the perfect size for 4 guests. The cottage is large, spacious, very clean and overlooks the pool -pictures are fully accurate - you are in a wonderful oasis! HIGHLY recommend staying with Kurt and touring the vineyards, sampling local fare at the restaurants etc. I cant wait to come again!

  • Had a great birthday celebration with several of my close friends and loved staying at this beautiful guest house. It was perfect for the 4 of us and Kurt had a cold bottle of Chardonnay waiting for us when we arrived. He even brought over his own fresh made olive oil and warm bread. Great hospitality and prompt communication. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks for a great time!
