Villa del Sol D’Oro


If you are interested in reserving the Villa del Sol d’Oro for a film shoot, wedding, or other similar production or event, click here for contract and rental information.

The Villa del Sol d’Oro serves as an important part of Alverno life. It is not uncommon to find the photography class taking pictures on the terrace or find a creative writing class creating a story about one of the Barlow’s many parties. Alverno’s two choirs, Concert Choir and Alverno Singers, practice upstairs, and the upstairs ballroom is perfect for our Pilates class. Additionally, the Villa serves as the location for Alverno’s Winter Formal; our Christmas Candlelight Celebration; various liturgies throughout the year; and, of course, it is the perfect location for the Mother-Daughter Tea and Father-Daughter Dance.

However, the Villa is not just a site for classes and activities at Alverno, but it has also been a location for television and movie productions as well as the perfect backdrop for print publications. Movies and television shows filmed at Alverno include The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story; Beverly Hills 90210; Bones; Columbo; Corrina, Corrina; CSI Miami; Lady Bird; Legally Blonde; Legion; MacArthur; Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.; The Master of Disguise; Mommie Dearest; The Princess Diaries; Passport to Paris; Poison Ivy; The Secret War of Harry Frigg; Sweet Bird of Youth; Uptown Saturday Night; and A Walk in the Clouds. The Villa has also been featured in Seventeen and Vogue as well as print advertisements for Vera Bradley, Ralph Lauren, and others. Alverno is fortunate to have this historical landmark as a part of our campus.
