Hill Country Venue History

One question we are continually asked is …How did this amazing villa come to be in the middle of Texas Hill Country? Villa Antonia was conceived and designed by Antonia ‘Toni’. She knew she wanted a very special home in the breathtaking canyons of the Texas Hill Country. After years of searching for the perfect piece of land, analyzing the breeze patterns drifting up from the canyons and meticulously designing the home of her dreams, the Villa was built in 1999.

Soon after she moved in, couples started stopping to ask if they could have their wedding at the Villa. Because of Toni’s passion for weddings, Villa Antonia was born.

 

“It was absolutely breathtaking.
The Villa itself looks like a castle straight from a fairytale, with the ornate foliage and beautiful architecture overlooking the hill country.”

 

Transformation

Over the years, Toni transformed the Villa into an incredible event venue by adding a little white chapel, a romantic rose garden, and exquisite stone terraces to enhance the elegant, old-world charm of the Villa. It’s also a labor of love, as every tree, every plant was carefully planned and placed by Toni’s daughter and mother. As an homage to the natural beauty that surrounds the venue, all of the stone archways and walls were excavated from the side of the canyon where the large fountain now sits.

The transformation made Villa Antonia an exquisite and much sought after venue, with over 1700 events held since its inception. Ranging from weddings to anniversary parties, concerts to corporate retreats, the Villa makes an indelible impression with both our location and our unparalleled service.

Planning and hosting an event can be stressful and difficult; we get that. Therefore, we strive to make the affair as seamless and easy as possible for you with a seasoned staff who brings the kind of creative energy, dedication and ingenuity needed to tackle the minutia of event planning. We want you to be able to enjoy your own event and rest assured that it will be one that keeps yours guests talking about for years to come.

We are proud of the dreams we’ve helped make come true here, and we know we can do the same for you.
