“You won’t find a more luxurious, inviting place to hold your event,” said Miller. “The moment your guests drive through the gate, they’ll feel like they’ve entered a little town in Tuscany, with paver stone streets and Italianate architecture.”
In addition to the banquet facility, Villa Portofino has a fine dining restaurant that seats 150. The bistro and the sports bar are perfect for casual get-togethers. And for presentations of any sort, there is a 100-seat theatre as well as a conference room.
“Add in the pool area and the spectacular view of the Santa Rosa Mountains, and you can see why Villa Portofino is picture-perfect for every imaginable event,” said Miller. “I invite anyone who is planning to have an event to come in, see me, take a tour and sample our chef’s wonderful cuisine. If you want to have an unforgettable event, you really owe it to yourself to experience this stand-out venue.”
Villa Portofino’s centralized location makes it convenient for guests from every community in the Valley. Sales of homes in the private, gated community have exceeded expectations, creating an energetic atmosphere in the sprawling clubhouse, which also features a Fitness Center, large Sports Bar, Bridge Room, and a grand piano in the graceful, soaring lobby.
“Our residents know about everything our clubhouse has to offer. Now, with the addition of Julie as our Event Director, the rest of the Coachella Valley will know it too,” said Vince Barbato, a principal of Family Development. “From weddings, to meetings, to birthday celebrations, to corporate events; Julie will ensure that any event is a memorable one at Villa Portofino.”
