This is a beautiful B&B lovingly run by the owners Jerry and Harold. The rooms are lovely and the evening wine and cheese tasting is only exceeded by the huge breakfast consisting of about a dozen fresh dishes made from scratch by Chef Jerry. Jerry is the consummate entertainer, knows everybody and everything about the area (wineries, restaurants, local sites... More

We stayed two nights at Bella Villa Messina on our recent trip to California. Jerry and Harold were wonderful hosts, serving wine and cheese every afternoon, delicious breakfasts each morning, and on top of that, Jerry helped plan our sightseeing trips in the Alexander Valley and Russian River Valley. Also, each night he made dinner reservations at two excellent restaurants... More

My husband & I stayed only 1 night & we had a wonderful time. The home is beautiful & the room was clean. Jerry & Harold made us feel at home & provided cheese & wine in the evening & a lovely breakfast in the morning. I highly recommend staying. You won't be disappointed.

We've used the Bella Villa Messina twice now as a base of operations for serious wine tasting expeditions in Sonoma. With great contacts at the local wineries and restaurants, hosts Jerry & Harold were able to steer us to some small wineries during the day and get us a coveted dinner reservation at night. To explain more about what makes... More

He keeps a list... More

We were in Sonoma Wine Country for a quick 1-night stay. Harold and Jerry are warm and inviting. The room, Burgundy, was immaculate with cute views of the surrounding flora. After a long day wine tasting, I enjoyed a soak in the jetted tub before heading out to Chalkboard for dinner. In the morning, Jerry made a delicious breakfast of... More

Breakfasts were truly delectable; the evening... More

This is our fifth time staying at this lovely, hilltop villa in Healdsburg, our favorite town in Sonoma County. Jerry and Harold are superb hosts and everything about this place reflects quality, charm and service. You can feel yourself relaxing as soon as you turn the corner onto their cypress-tree-lined driveway. BVM is a very short drive to Healdsburg Center... More
