My husband and I normally stay at hotels on our vacations. For a number of reasons, we were somewhat unimpressed with the choices that were available in the Healdsburg area so decided to give Bella Villa Messina a try. Needless to say, we did not regret our decision! The Villa is located only minutes from the town's Main Street as well as the wineries of the surrounding areas.
We stayed in the Burgundy Room which was the perfect size for a couple - queen sized bed, own shower/tub, own fireplace in a quiet corner on the top floor. The room was cleaned daily with fresh towels provided.
Jerry and Harold were lovely and gracious hosts and known at a number of the wineries. Jerry's breakfasts were to die for. The Hawaiian Bread French Toast was a must. He even woke up exceptionally early to make us Eggs Benedict before our early departure. Their knowledge of the wineries in the area and tailored itineraries were exceptionally helpful for Sonoma newbies like us.
We will be returning to Bella Villa Messina and highly recommend you schedule your stay there as well!!
