“Out of a Dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

The Villa Florentina seems to be designed from something out of my dreams. It is unique, classy, and perched on top of a hill in Coloma with breathtaking views. The Venue itself had a lot of thought go into the design and is perfect for events and weddings with gorgeous rooms for the bride to get ready (very important haha!) a fountain, bocce ball for entertainment, and olive trees. There are hotels, restaurants, parks and gorgeous scenery nearby as well. The photography here would be absolutely stunning. We got a tour from the owner who showed us all around and answered all of our questions, ALL of them, even the ones we thought of later he was quick to email or call us back. I strongly believe that this place is a hidden gem and I would recommend it to anyone.

Stayed April 2012, traveled with family

I got to help plan a friend’s wedding here. It was just an amazing experience from start to finish and a lot of that had to do with it being held at Villa Florentina. Every step of the way the staff was totally accommodating and helpful. Just their great customer service is worth booking here! We had our initial venue tour with the owner himself and he took the time to answer all of our questions...and we had lots. We were impressed with how well laid out the property was for a wedding and yet how intimate it felt.

The day of the wedding was gorgeous! Villa Florentina was the perfect setting - impeccably clean, maintained grounds, with just incredible scenery. The bridal party got ready in the bridal suite in the villa, which was really nice...and had two bathrooms! It was a super relaxed atmosphere, for being such a luxurious place, and we got some great getting ready shots.

We had about 160 guests at the wedding so it was really nice to be able to park on-site and not have to shuttle all those people back and forth from somewhere else. Also, I know it might sound a little silly, but they had really nice bathrooms for all the guests too. No porta-potties at this wedding...I hate that!

We decided to have the ceremony on the lawn and that went off without a hitch. After the ceremony, our guests played bocce on the bocce court and had cocktails and appetizers. The reception was in the huge, round plaza in front of the villa. It has a fountain in the middle which was really pretty when the sun went down and it was all lit up. The sunset as we were having dinner and doing speeches was incredible, and the photos turned out more better than we could have hoped for.

The DJ was set up next to their permanent dance floor and we seriously danced until our feet almost fell off:) That was a big factor in my friend's decision...being able to have a band or DJ, and it really made the night. Whenever we needed a break, we sat around the fire and could still watch the dancing. When the event ended, some of us went down to one of the local bars and basically took it over...so much fun. I was lucky enough to get to stay in one of the guest rooms at Villa Florentina and I got such a good night’s sleep...which was probably because the bed was super comfy, but maybe also partly to do with the wine:) The next morning, the owner made a really amazing breakfast...all local and organic...mmmm! And this may seem trivial, but they had a huge selection of high quality teas...a nice touch for us tea drinkers.

Wow, this review got really long, but I’ve been in and to a lot of my friends’ weddings and this was one of the best experiences I’ve had. We had so much fun and the venue was elegant and refined without being stuffy. If you are even considering having your wedding here, go for it! This place is amazing and you won't be disappointed!

The Villa is set near the American River so just the sound is soothing! The garden, patio and olive trees give it an entirely tuscan feeling - inside and out. Each room is tastefully furnished with everything you need to be comfortable for your stay. The living room fireplace warms the room and creates great conversation. Walking beside the river, or enjoying the area of foothills, this is the place. The host and hostess are easy, gracious and willing to point you to lots of fun in the area. Warm summers lollygagging in the river or winter hiking in the nearby forests. Old Placerville is nearby, skiing about an hour away or take a day trip to Tahoe but return to the charm of villaflorentina.
