SONOMA, CA, November 01, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Three BeautifulPlaces (www.beautiful-places.com ) California Wine Country Villas will be featured on an upcoming episode of "House Hunters On Vacation" scheduled to air in December on HGTV (Home and Garden Television). For this show, a spin-off of their widely successful "House Hunters," a family was surprised with a dream vacation in Sonoma, in the heart of California's wine country, and shown three luxurious villas. At the end of the show they must choose their favorite villa in which to spend their week-long vacation, all expenses paid by HGTV.
"We were thrilled to work with BeautifulPlaces - their villas were perfect, absolutely camera-ready. It was actually hard to settle on just three for the show," said Carrie Jensen, producer of the show. "BeautifulPlaces also helped us arrange some wonderful activities for the guests including a private dinner prepared by noted chef Maria Viegas and reserve wine tastings at some of Sonoma's top vineyards." The guests also had the opportunity to explore the town of Sonoma dining in local restaurants and visiting St. Francis Winery and other top vineyards.
The show's host Taniya Nayak (also featured on HGTV's "Bang For Your Buck," "Designed to Sell," and "Destination Design") escorted the family as they toured the three villas highlighting the different styles and features. "I never realized that the wine country offered so many different home styles - I truly found something special in each home," commented Nayak. Featured on the show: The ultra-contemporary California Dreamin' with its walls of glass, views of the surrounding vineyards and private wine cave; the Tuscan-style Villa Nel Bosco with fine European details; a sprawling outdoor entertainment area with a bocce ball court and the on property vineyard filled with superior Syrah grapes; and Rosewood, a neo-colonial estate surrounded by manicured gardens including more than 250 rosebushes with views of the majestic Sugarloaf mountains from the many balconies and verandas.
"We were delighted to work with the House Hunters team as they truly recognize the value and lifestyle only found in a villa rental....and continue to showcase this growing vacation option to a wide audience," commented Liza Graves, President of BeautifulPlaces.
