WHAT MAKES THIS A BUNGALUX
- • We like the authentic feel of this one. The exterior is beautiful, and it sits so beautifully into the site.
- • Very European-like villa in a great location in Wine Country.
- • By the way, cool trivia: The phrase Valley of the Moon (see description) was first recorded in an 1850 report by General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo to the California Legislature.
- • According to Jack London, who had a ranch there, the Native American word Sonoma means Valley of the Moon. He used it for his book of the same name. But there are several other possible translations for Sonoma. According to the Miwok tribes that lived in the valley, and the Pomo, it meant "valley of the moon" or "many moons". White settlers may have accidentally translated the words "many moons" into "valley of moons". Miwok legends say that the moon seemingly rose from this valley, or was "nestled" in the valley, or may have even sprung up multiple times in one night.
