Being new to TripAdvisor, I thought I'd review a place that really stands out for me. Villa Florentina hosted my daughter's wedding and it was simply amazing!
Our experience there was wonderful, from start to finish. We ended up using some of the vendors from their preferred vendor list, but also chose some on our own. Loren and his staff were very helpful along the way, providing suggestions and helping with communication between the vendors. We (I helped with a lot of the planning) were willing to put in the extra effort so that her wedding was totally unique and elegant. The bride and groom and guests were absolutely thrilled with the results.
I'm not really sure how the previous reviewers could have any complaints about Villa Florentina. Loren had suggested that we rent large umbrellas in case it was hot and our guests needed shade and we did. Our caterer had an adequate supply of ice and drinks for our guests. Because we took Villa Florentina and our vendors’ advice and followed their recommendations, everything was perfect!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Overlooking the American River and Coloma Valley, Villa Florentina welcomes you for luxurious weddings and weekend getaways. The days here are filled with gentle breezes, the sound of the river, and a sense of love and laughter. From the verandas and terraces you will gaze across the silvery leaves of the estate's olive grove and down the valley towards the setting sun. As night falls and the stars dance overhead, you will wish the evenings could last forever. ... more less
