A relaxing Tuscan-style retreat on the Sonoma coast.
Oak-dappled hillsides surround the terracotta stucco and red-tiled roofs of this Tuscan-themed villa on the Sonoma County coast. All of the property's eighteen rooms are simple and elegant, and they feature cozy armchairs, wood-burning fireplaces and fresh-cut flowers. The country rooms are the smallest, and deluxe villa rooms the newest, with the property's largest accommodations being the junior and honeymoon suites. A nine-hole putting green, whirlpool spa and heated pool appeal to leisure travelers who make up the majority of the clientele. The Courtyard Spa offers a variety of treatments including classic, sport, aromatherapy and reflexology massage. With two conference rooms, the property can be used for modest-sized business retreats; when booking the whole resort, guests receive a discounted group rate. Nearby is the picturesque coastal town of Bodega, where visitors can buy fresh fish in the harbor and spot whales cavorting in the Pacific offshore.
