Allen and Jill Methven purchased this villa in 2001

Why Allen and Jill Methven chose Willamette Valley Oregon

This is a unique property in that it is surrounded by vineyards and has views of the Valley and the Cascades with no subdivisions in sight. Very private yet close to everything you need. We were looking for property for a few years and then found this perfect location by chance as it was not listed at the time. It was 100% raw land and gave us the challenge and opportunity to create our own home, landscaping, vineyards and Winery. Jill grew up in the country on a horse ranch/farm and Allen loves living on and off the land and large open spaces.

As soon as we saw this property we new we found what we were looking for.

What makes this villa unique

The location of this rolling hills property in the heart of wine country, the beautiful spacious villa, pastoral, mountain and vineyard views, pool, hot tub sauna and the many amenities. Many comment they feel they are in Tuscany and are able to easily relax and take in the local attractions within 5 to 20 minutes. There is no comparable sight in the region as far as the size of the Villa and the tranquil privacy it offers. Leave the property and enjoy Oregon's many wineries and highly rated restaurant scene. Attend a downtown open market with local vendors showcasing their fruits, vegetables, cheeses, meats, art etc. Come home and BBQ by the pool, enjoying local wines or Oregon Brews and the local fare. Oregon is known for it's amazing array of fresh produce and the berry scene is abundant! The children can safely walk to the blueberry patch and pick while you enjoy the evening by the pool and BBQ. There are fruit trees and fruit available for the picking when in season. You may just want to pick some fresh herbs to cook with from our garden or grab a tomato or two to go along with the fresh herbs. You can also help yourself to the fresh vegetables if they are ready to pick as well.

We are only one hour from the Coast and one hour from Portland! Smack dab in the middle of wine country. We won three best of shows in 2014 and 2015 for our wines. We were number 17 out of over 1,000 wines in the Oregon wine awards. Stop by for a free tasting when you stay at the Villa.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Really loved this house. We had 5 very nice bedrooms each with a private bath, which is really hard to find, perfect for 5 couples. The property is beautiful & really loved the winery tour & tasting with Will. Appreciated access to the garden & enjoyed fresh veggies. Enjoyed the spa & beautiful pool. The owners were really nice & easy to work with. Definitely recommend staying here!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. We enjoy sharing the vineyard experience. One of the reasons that we live in the Pacific Northwest is for the great garden growing season. We are glad that you enjoyed them. We are so pleased that you all joined our wine club. Will said that he had fun showing you around. Jill and I hope that you return soon. Cheers Allen and Jill.

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

After checking with the other couples it's safe to say this was our best wine country experience, ever. The villa was the most well-appointed, comfortable and beautifully situated house we've stayed in; and we've been doing these trips for over 15 years. The Methvens were very gracious and accommodating and had excellent tips for places to go for dining, tastings or shopping. Being able to walk through the gardens and pick fresh tomatoes, herbs, blueberries and more on a daily basis was a treat, as was making fresh flower arrangements from their grounds. There were more than enough places for people to "get away" for some quiet time while at the same time the covered porch and pool area were great for just hanging out together. I wouldn't hesitate for a second on recommending this house to anyone interested in visiting the Willamette Valley wine country.

Excellent quality home, Allen and Jill gave precise instructions

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home for the 6 of us that golfed, toured wineries and had a great chef, Wendy. Methven wines were top rated. So glad we found this place.

Owner's Response: George It was great meeting you and your group. I was told by Mike that the private dinner you had with Wendy as the chef was incredible. Jill and I hope to see you again. In the mean time enjoy the wine. Cheers Allen

Great family vacation experience!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place where our extended family could stay together as we gathered for my daughter's graduation from college. We were so lucky to find this villa! Our hosts were so nice, the place was fabulous and the house had all the entertainment we needed for the adults and the kids. The bonus was staying at an actual winery as we were able to learn about wine-making as well as sample the product😀. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Owner's Response: Maile Mahalo for the great review. It was fun showing your family the winery. Seeing the 2 sets of twins was especially fun for me as I am a twin as well. Again congrats on the graduate. See you in Hawaii. Aloha and mahalo Allen

Better than we even dreamed or imagined!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several homes for our vacation trips in years past, and we seem to always be a little disappointed when we arrive, since they never are as nice as the on line photographs. However, their house was MORE than we expected. Decorated beautifully and thoughtfully everything needed was provided by these truly caring home owners! We immediately felt comfortable and welcomed from the moment our drive from Portaland airport began! We would strongly suggest that anyone wanting to visit this area choose to stay in their beautiful home. It was convenient to all the places we wanted to see and the experience of arriving back at this house was one that we all looked forward to! Each couple was comfortable in their beds and bathrooms and the home owners were extremely attentive to our every need, without being overly involved in our stay. Again, we cannot stress enough to how much we would Highly recommend staying in this home for your Oregon visit!

Welcome to our Villa located on the hilltop of our 100 plus acre property overlooking our vineyards. We enjoy spectacular views of Mount Hood, the Cascades in the distance and a beautiful stand of old growth White Oaks.

The setting is very reminiscent of being in Tuscany with the rolling pastoral countryside and picturesque vineyards that surround the property. Our Estate Villa is a full 10,000 sq ft. not including the 4 outside patios. It has two full kitchens, five spacious private suites, each with its own bath and sitting area. We have a bonus bedroom that shares the lower bathroom if needed.There are five fireplaces, two hot tubs, a sauna and home theatre.

We invite you to recreate and relax around our property, swimming in the outdoor pool, hiking, strolls through the vineyard, a relaxing soak in the hot tub.Head to the game room for a game of pool, shuffleboard or foosball. Enjoy a movie in our home theatre. You may also sit on a covered deck or in the Library with a good book to read.

Feel free to come to our winery and tasting room and try our award winning wines and barrel taste with our winemaker or one of our staff. Wine tasting if free when you stay at the Villa.

We are happy to assist you in booking your golf outings, dinner reservations, theatre, tours, private chef dinners and spa visits.

We are located in the heart of wine country within 10 minutes of some of our favorite wineries and tasting rooms along with several restaurants that are some of the best in Oregon! We are only one hour from the Coast, the Portland airport and downtown Portland!

You will feel pampered in your room in the comfort of luxury linens, towels and robes. Enjoy your morning coffee or tea out on the deck, out by the pool or in our breakfast dining room.
