Villa Amodei


Welcome to Villa Amodei by Exceptional Villas, a spectacular 6 bedroom Italian villa situated within a 30 acre lemon orchard in the rolling hills of Somis in Southern California. This luxurious property offers much privacy and peaceful surroundings with an emphasis on easy living, both inside and out.

The family name “Amodei” is derived from the Latin meaning “Love of God” which is very fitting for this peaceful haven. Along with the 30 acre lemon orchard, the villa also features 2 acres of landscaped manicured gardens with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. It is no wonder that the villa has been used for many major film productions, commercials, photo shoots and TV shows.

The moment you arrive at the private gates of this elegant estate, you will instantly feel that you have been magically transported to a picturesque hillside in Tuscany with the scent of lemon trees welcoming you along the avenue. As you enter the villa, it is evident that much love and attention has gone into the décor to create a romantic yet welcoming home. Comfortable couches and an oversized armchair with foot stool occupy the light and bright living area, leading directly out on to the spacious patio, through large glass doors. The adjoining kitchen is very well equipped and features stainless steel appliances, an island with food prep area, a sink and seating. The separate formal dining room can seat up to 8 guests around an impressive dark wood table. The house is adorned with beautiful antique furniture pieces and eye-catching unique chandeliers.

Entertainment opportunities are never far away, both inside and outdoors. Inside the villa, guests can enjoy a very spacious TV room with Satellite/Cable TV, video library, Ping Pong Table and various board games. Outside, occupying an impressive 10,000 square foot terrace, there are many spaces set up for Al Fresco Dining and various beautiful seating areas with couches and armchairs and even an outside fire place. The swimming pool and hot tub provide your guests with a place to relax after an exhilarating game of volleyball, basketball or football. Your guests can gather together or disappear in smaller groups as there is plenty of space for everybody, together or apart.

Villa Amodei can comfortably sleep up to 12 guests in 6 exquisite bedrooms. The main house features 4 bedrooms, whilst an Artist’s Studio, separate from the main building, offers two further bedrooms.

When you book your villa rental with Exceptional Villas, a complimentary and detailed concierge service is provided with your booking. Your personal concierge will be delighted to recommend nearby restaurants and activities and will be happy to make reservations for you.

Should your guests require a little excitement away from the peace and tranquillity of Villa Amodei, the vibrant city of Santa Barbara is just 40 minute drive. Santa Barbara offers great beaches, upscale shopping opportunities, fascinating arts and culture and world-class restaurants.
