About Suzanne Franklin

Welcome to my VRBO profile and to my little piece of paradise. DeChateauneuf is my family name. It is French in origin and my family genealogy can be traced all the way back to the 9th century. Although I am a born and raised California girl, I am especially proud of my French heritage. It is the influence of my French mother, grandparents and extended family that has given me a love and appreciation for fine foods, wine and everything beautiful in life. It gives me great joy to share the things I love with others and it is my hope that you too will fall in love with Healdsburg and my home.

And of course, if all else fails there is always plenty of wine close at hand.

La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin, meaning: "Life is too short to drink bad wine."

Suzanne Franklin purchased this house in 2012

What makes this house unique

Southern California

Heaven away from Home in Wine Country Tuscany feel Getaway in Northern Caifornial!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!! I want to come back here every opportunity I have to experience a taste of "heaven" And I am in no way kidding or exaggerating.

Every single spot in this house and on it's grounds are placed that call to you to:

Come, and sit a while...

Come, and look a little closer...

Come, and see...

Come, and hear...

Come, and taste...

Come, and stay a while...

Every detail in this beautiful home; in this incredible "escape" both from all that stresses, to all that quiets and calms and inspires has been thought out and orchestrated into a symphony of serenity...

I loved curling up in bed or on the couch or on the balcony or deck with a good book...

I loved cooking a fabulous meal in the kitchen... And enjoy in wine and cheese and crackers accompanied by incredible heirloom tomatoes of all shapes sizes and colors from the garden...

Seriously... This may very well be my favorite place on earth right now.

I look forward to coming again and again and again...

Thank you for sharing this beautiful home with others.

I am a very very grateful "other".
