July 23, 2012, We just spent a week at Villa Florenza. Every year, for a number of years, we have a family gathering each Summer. This year we had it at VF and it was spectacular.
The location, scenery, and property was phenomenal. The infinity pool was the best part as everyone used it each day. The inside of the house was beautiful and the amenities were wonderful.
David, the caretaker, was a warm and wonderful host and very attentive to our needs. If any little thing did arise, he got it taken care of right away and was always available and timely in providing information on the house, its operation, and the surrounding area.
I would definitely go to VF again. Thanks for a wonderful time, Peter B.
What a wonderful, fantastic week we had in Chelan and at Villa Florenza! An amazing home you have built - wonderfully spacious, set up so people can have privacy in their own rooms or suites, with nice bathrooms to boot, yet when everyone gathers in the kitchen/great room/patio/pool, there is still ample room to enjoy the space and not feel on top of each other.
As a professional chef and restaurant owner, I was especially pleased with the kitchen and outdoor grill - incredible to have that sort of btu power in home appliances. Fantastic. Those nice tools, along with the huge island/prep area meant that I could be cooking breakfast or dinner, have lots of helpers, and lots of folks around chatting while I worked. I felt on vacation while working - perfect!
The best testament to the home was the fact that we all actually enjoyed being together all week. I'm an in-law, but even my wife, connected by blood, was very dubious of this week spent with her family. Instead, we had non-stop fun and such ease and comfort. And the pool is delicious, the deck/patio around it delightful, and the overall location and position in relation to the sun perfect.
Thanks so much for all the care and vision you put into Villa Florenza.
I look forward to an occasion that will bring me back to Villa Florenza soon. We loved it, loved the area, and often wondered why we should even leave the grounds. Fantastic. Thanks, Paolo. -John P.
Our family of 9 had an amazing time at Villa Florenza, the property was spectacular and met our every need for a thoroughly memorable vacation. We’ve done several high end VRBO home rentals across the US over the years and this one with no exception competes with the best of them. The friendly caretaker Ron took his time to walk us through the property and clearly takes very good care tending to things as he sees them.
The construction of the home in terms of materials and finishes was as high end as it gets, simply love the posts and beams. The house layout and amenities was perfect for our needs, the bedrooms were well spaced out across 3 floors giving ample space/privacy for our twin babies, a 12 year old, sister and their family plus our nanny. Bathrooms and bedrooms very well appointed, kitchen well stocked with cooking supplies, extra fridge to store food for the week, laundry room easily accessible with a dozen pool towels. The pool/deck area was simply fantastic, perfectly suited to in + out-of-the pool activities, outdoor eating, well designed for all the age groups, and the commanding view overlooking the lake, while draping over the zero edge very spoiling ;-) We were treated to the Chelan cigarette boat Poker Run from our poolside seats! We rented a pair of jetskis for the week which we moored down at the bottom of the property, we found the dock accessibility perfectly fine, so managed to go up and down several times during the day without issue. Having the home’s pool area and lake access easily at hand gave us lots of options during the day.
The home is only a 10 minute drive to Manson, managing to go for enjoyable jogs in the surrounding farm land in the mornings. The Red Apple supermarket in Manson is equivalent to a small Safeway, so if you’re looking for a wide range of meats or have preferences for organic items other than eggs then it is worth bringing a cooler with a week’s supply.
We most likely be back in the future for sure as it was such an enjoyable and maintained residence.
We stayed at this property with a couple other families and it was amazing. The location is perfect for families or couples trying to enjoy the beauty of Lake Chelan. The pool was a highlight for the kids. Of course a close second place was jumping off the dock as well as catching fish right off of it! The home is immaculately maintained and easily fit our families. The property manager was extremely friendly and helped us understand how everything worked at check in. Overall a wonderful experience and a beautiful home.
Beautiful home! We had a great stay and loved the pool area best. Did lots of BBQ'ing and just relaxed. Dave who checked us in and closed us out was awesome and made it really easy and comfortable. The owner was easy to work with and all went well. Very relaxing home with beautiful views and good deer watching as we found out!! We would stay again and really enjoyed our time at this home.
Our family of 6 adults and 7 kids just spent a wonderful week at Villa Florenza, a home that far exceeded our expectations! It is located close to town, but still feels very remote and private. The setting is serene, and the views of the lake and surrounding hills are breathtaking. The design of the house perfectly complements the setting which makes it possible to enjoy the view regardless of where you are in the house. The interior finishings of the house (luxurious bathrooms, woodwork, fireplace & decor) are as beautiful as the setting.
We loved the patio and kitchen, which were the most heavily used parts of the house. The patio is very large and has an outdoor kitchen, large table with chairs, 3 loungers, a small table surrounded by chairs and benches, an arbor that provides shade, and gorgeous planters that are overflowing with flowers. The pool's design is very unique and stunning. The hot tub is connected to the pool and has a flat ledge where water from the hot tub can 'waterfall' into the pool. It is an amazing visual effect, but is also so much fun for the kids to play in. The pool has a very large shallow step which is perfect for little ones to play on, a shallow area, and a 6 ft. deep area. Everyone was happy in the pool- from infants to preteens to adults. The infinity edge was another huge perk; it looked great in pictures, and even served as a backdrop for our large family photo.
The kitchen is a chef's dream. We usually had several of us in the kitchen working to prepare meals, and there was plenty of room. The large island was perfect for food preparation and serving. The 6 burner gas stove and 2 refrigerators (one in the garage) were great for big groups. There were ample dishes and silverware, and the kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans, bakeware, utensils, and spices.
While the house has great gathering spaces, there is also opportunity for privacy: a large master suite and a loft on the upper floor, two bedrooms (one with an attached bath) on the main floor, and a spacious lower floor that is perfect for children. It is carpeted and has 2 bedrooms, a large bathroom, and a comfortable family room. Even with such a big group, we never felt crowded and the house was very quiet.
We also really appreciated the house's caretaker, Dave. He was extremely friendly and helpful, and made sure we were comfortable without being obtrusive. Wonderful house, wonderful vacation, wonderful memories- thank you!
My Husband and I decided to celebrate our joint 30th birthdays by treating our family to a stay with fun and sun in Chelan. While looking for a place to stay, i came across Villa Florenza and my expectations were absolutely blown away! This place is amazing!
We have a variety of different physical limitations as well as different standards of "relaxing" within our family as I'm sure lots of families do, and this place definitely met everyone"s needs and desires! The pool area was incredible! I felt as if i were at my own private 5 star resort! You cant beat the view. While lounging in the pool, you feel as if you are floating on top of the world. Its surreal! As a sun worshiper, there are beautiful lounge chairs situated along the gorgeous patio with ample places to soak up some rays while feeling like royalty in your own majestic oasis! There are multiple areas outside to all come together and an awesome outdoor kitchen to have the ultimate bbq! A glorious hot tub to soak those sore muscles from all the fun you will have, if you so choose, on the lake! A beautiful walk down the hill leads to a private dock, which you can bring some music and lake toys down to too play with.
The house is gorgeous; the rooms are so comfortable and there are rooms on each level so, for those who have physical limitations, there is something for everyone.
Needless to say, we supremely enjoyed our stay at Villa Florenza. The caretakers were a joy to work with and made our stay that much better. Thank you Paul for opening up such a wonderful place for us! We truly enjoyed our stay and I know others will too! Don't hesitate to rent this place!
This area is known for its fruit orchards and upcoming vineyards and wineries. Gorgeous views, crystal clear waters of Lake Chelan and 300+ days of sunshine create a truly beautiful valley in North Central Washington State.
