Why You'll Love This Place
A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue ReviewRead More Show Less
Among the trees and manicured lawns of this 17-acre park you’ll find Villa Chanticleer. Built in 1910 as a country resort, the venue has a rich history of hosting weddings, receptions, parties, and community events. Guests appreciate not only the peace and beauty of the lovely surroundings, but the facility’s thoughtful amenities as well—Villa Chanticleer is outfitted with a state-of-of-the-art audiovisual system to enhance your event.
When you arrive, take a moment to enjoy the large trees, mature landscape, fresh air, and birdsong. As you enter Villa Chanticleer, notice the wide veranda shaded by a handsome, wisteria-draped arbor. Inside, you’re welcomed by an open, gracious foyer. The bar area directly ahead is conveniently U-shaped and surrounded by eight large booths, perfect for a cocktail hour.
The doors to your right lead to the Dining Room; those on your left open to the Ballroom. Each 3,000-square-foot room features redwood paneling, a light-toned hardwood floor, and bucolic views. In the Dining Room, generous picture windows frame panoramic vistas of the Alexander Valley below and Geyser Peak in the distance. From the Ballroom, you can see the veranda, lawn, and hillside covered in oaks, maples and bay laurel trees. A centrally located, modern commercial kitchen is easily accessible from both spaces, adding to their versatility.
A short walk from Villa Chanticleer is the elegant Wedding Garden. Wrought-iron gates invite you into the two-level secluded lawn bordered by terraced landscaping and redwood trees. A quaint gazebo may serve as either a backdrop or the focal point for your ceremony.
The Picnic/Barbecue area is excellent for casual events such as family reunions, baby showers, company picnics, and rehearsal dinners.
This multifaceted facility provides a memorable setting for large or intimate gatherings, and the price is quite attractive. No wonder Villa Chanticleer has been a favorite of wedding couples and their guests for generations.
