About Villa Montalvo at Montalvo Arts Center
Nestled against a wooded slope in the private and secluded Saratoga hills is VILLA MONTALVO at Montalvo Arts Center, a lovely complex with a variety of venues for concerts, weddings, corporate events and private parties. For weddings, the focal point of this estate is its beautiful Mediterranean-style mansion, Villa Montalvo. Built in 1912 as the private summer residence of Senator James Duval Phelan, this National Register Historic Landmark is now home to an arboretum and a nonprofit center for the arts.

An inviting one-way road leads up to Villa Montalvo. As you round the last turn, you get your first glimpse of the estate’s expansive manicured lawns and colorful gardens, as well as the mansion’s terracotta-tile roof, light stucco walls and wide veranda. To your left, you’ll also see the Love Temple, one of two ceremony sites on the grounds; it’s an open-air, white-columned pavilion set at the end of a wide brick path featuring historic marble statues. Couples get married on its steps, with a view of the surrounding Mediterranean garden and the Villa and woods in the background.

Directly behind the Villa, the Oval Garden offers a lush garden setting complete with classical statues and wisteria-covered pergolas. This open-air courtyard is an intimate and delightful place for a ceremony; a brick pathway serves as the center aisle, and a column-supported arcade is the backdrop for taking vows.

The Villa’s entire first floor, verandas, courtyards, gardens and outdoor grounds are available for ceremonies and seated dinners for up to 350 guests (more for stand-up receptions or with tenting). For larger weddings, up to 400 guests can be accommodated by tenting the Great Lawn. After the ceremony, guests can mingle in the Spanish Courtyard, enjoying cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and then move onto the Veranda for a majestic seated dinner while enjoying splendid views of the Great Lawn. The ornate fireplaces can be filled with glowing candles in the summer or warm cozy fires in the winter. Wedding ceremonies & receptions can be held indoors during the winter months. We look forward to meeting with you and touring the historic Villa and gardens.
