Dine al fresco on the veranda of the historic Villa, accompanied by live piano music to set the mood. Bring your friends and family and create a memorable, delicious, and international experience in this lovely setting!


2024 Summer Luncheons

Our 2024 Summer Luncheons will take place each Wednesday from July 10–August 14. Three seating times are offered for each luncheon (12pm, 12:30pm, and 1pm), with a different menu every week featuring an international theme.

Reservations are $70 per person (includes fees, tax, and gratuity). Proceeds benefit the maintenance and preservation of the Villa and grounds. Parking is free. Meals include coffee or tea; wine is available for purchase.

All reservations must be made by 12pm on Monday of the week prior to the date of each luncheon. It is recommended that a single person purchase tickets for the entire table. Maximum of 10 people per table. 

Visit the gift boutique to shop for unique and handmade items! Plus, an informal fashion show featuring products from local women’s clothing stores will take place during each luncheon. In addition, guests can choose to arrive early to play card games in the Spanish Courtyard.
