    Located in the heart of Atherton, The Bella Sera sits behind her gates surrounded by over 2 ½ acres. The tumbled travertine and cobblestone framed driveway with a center stone from the Vatican streets immediately create an authentic old world experience. The Italian architectural influences and accents continue before entry with the antique tile roof, chimney pots and fountain as you approach the grand entrance.
