Inside Scoop

Originally conceived as a private home, the 8,500 square foot Villa now serves as an extension of the Sunstone Winery lifestyle. On a trip to France, owners Linda and Fred Rice discovered architectural remains of buildings in towns and villages in various regions of France, including Marseille and Provence.  Built from French limestone, wooden beams and roof tiles reclaimed from a 19th century lavender factory, once owned by Queen Victoria, the Villa is an opportunity to see and touch pieces of history.  The Villa was completed in 2004.
 
The Villa has five luxurious suites with its own private bath, antiques, fine linens, bedding and private entrances.  There are eight fireplaces, wood-burning oven, Billiards Room and numerous terraces with views of the mountains and vineyard.  The Villa’s French farm kitchen and courtyard are favorite gathering spaces. The kitchen is stocked with basic cooking equipment, plates, glasses and flatware. There is a wood burning oven on the Center Courtyard.  In the evening, you will want to make a fire in the Center Courtyard’s fireplace and relax with a glass of wine.
