One of the premier wedding venues in the Hill Country of Central Texas is a place called Villa Antonia. Villa Antonia is an Italian-styled villa located in Jonestown, Texas, just northwest of Austin, near Lake Travis. Historically, the villa was built in 1998 as a personal residence for family living. However, later, out of necessity, the home became a popular wedding and event center because of its beauty and magical feel.
Villa Antonia is modeled after post-renaissance Italian architecture. When one enters the grounds, there is a feeling of entering a time machine and going back to an earlier, more romantic time or place in Europe. Its architecture and design sets it apart from many other Texas venues and creates a special kind of atmosphere for weddings and special occasions.
Villa Antonia is equipped for indoor and outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions. It has a beautiful indoor wedding chapel that seats a reasonable number of people. The outdoor patio that is partially covered can also facilitate a wedding ceremony and features sweeping views of the green Texas Hill Country.
Villa Antonia can accommodate medium to large sized weddings and features multiple levels for celebrations of all kinds and entertaining guests. The main indoor reception area is lined with stone walls and sprawling area for guests to mingle and dance. Some of the great features of the interior include the spiral staircase bathed in natural light and surrounded by green plants, which is a signature of Villa Antonia. Upstairs there are quiet, intimate quarters for the party of the bride and groom to prepare for the event/wedding.
Outside the main reception area statues and water features abound. In the main entry way, a stone fountain with a statue punctuates the center point between the wedding chapel, the main patio (used for outdoor ceremonies) and the reception hall. As one walks along the reception area and descending the stairs/walkway, plants and more water features are encountered, making you feel like you are in a Babylonian garden. There are also look out points on the third level of Villa Antonia where amazing, romantic views and star watching can occur.
