I came here a few years back with a friend and I havent forgotten it. Its so great that we have an art space like this in Silicon Valley. There are gardens, galleries, concerts, tours, and classes/workshops for kids and adults. Check out their website for a calendar of events and for operating hours. Just walking around the gardens and taking photos was really fun. The Great Lawn would be a great spot for a small outdoor wedding in the spring with the green grass and the house in the background.
My husband and I attended the Kathy Griffin Standup show and were disgustingly disappointed at the FALSE advertising. We paid for FRONT row tickets not fourth row. Why were we NOT told that there would be three rows added in front of us? And why were we not given the option to purchase those? We could not even see properly as there were people at level with us in the rows in front. We will not be attending any more events at your arts center.

I came to the art center for the hiking trails. The place is beautiful and in a really nice area. Certain trails have great views and one of the best things was that there are no parking fees, or at least not that I saw. There are about 4 different parking spots depending on where you want to start and what youre there for. Certain places are paved while most of it is dirt. Id go there again and again. :]
Writing about my first time there, which was recently. Wow! I cant believe I missed this place. A great venue for a concert. Beautiful, relaxing and friendly. I cant wait to see my next concert here. This review may be shaded by the fact that I saw the B-52s that night and they are a great high energy fun Band. So, until the next time at least, five stars *****.
If youre finding hike routes easy and with lots of shades, these is the place to visit. Not for advanced hikers. Close to the cities and having enough parking space. Even easy for little kids and aged people while they dont get exposed to sun and can gain some exercises. Not even mention there are beautiful gardens and large grass.
One of my favorite hang out places. I am always open to go to Montalvo Arts Center any time of the day. I have been there during the final Fridays, enjoying the wonderful dinner from the culinary artist, enjoying the projects of the residents and meeting like minded people. The place is wonderful.
Great venue with lovely buildings and spaces. Nooks for good conversations and paths for walking and enjoying the view. If there is an event here, dont assume you should just drive up and park. Check before hand of parking arrangments, it might be a shuttle from West Valley College nearby
Went here the other day for Yelps Midsummer Night event. It was a beautiful venue that is well maintained. However, the parking lot is quite small and the location is secluded. I can see how traffic can be a nightmare if there was a big event.
Nestled in the mountains surrounding Saratoga is the Montavo arms center. There are trails to walk on and see art in the woods as well bronze and marble bust around the compound. Its a great place for wedding pics also.
Very impressive estate/venue, with a nice garden area, large grass lawn, and a very good hiking trail around the perimeter of the property. Definitely worth a visit for a quick trip or for a music event.
Beautiful "hidden" gem! Im a 43yr old California native and never heard of this place until my friend won tickets to a private B52s concert here. Will DEFINITELY come back to explore!
I really enjoyed a small Botanical garden. Nothing else special. Art center program is specifically targeted to Saratoga/los Gatos rich and very senior clientele.
Used to be a governors mansion, but now it is open to public. It has beautiful gardens and couple of short hiking trails with Vista points overlooking South Bay.
An absolutely amazing place for art, community events, weddings. An incredible staff and the grounds are spectacular, its like being transported to another era.
beautiful grounds are perfect for a weekend stroll. Has great musical performances from time to time. Intimate venue but tickets are not cheap.
Beautiful place. They used to have great concerts in the nicest open setting. But unfortunately, they dont bring great singers anymore.
Great concert venue. Hiking trails and beautiful gardens. The views and trails were stunning. Offer bathrooms and free parking.

Beautiful formerly hidden secret, have loved coming here for the hiking trails since I was a boy. Also performing arts center.
Great place for family outings, light hikes and casual walks with close friends. The go-to-place for some peace and quiet.
Fancy old mansion with well maintained gardens. Great venue for live music. Small auditorium gives everyone a great view.
Stupendo posto si balla alla grande
Beautiful architecture and grounds, well maintained hiking paths, and easy shelter from occasional rain showers
This place is breathtaking. You must take your time to explore the history of Villa Montalvo built in 1912.
Its been at least 50 years since I visited Montalvo. Never forgot it. Looking forward to another visit.
Fun events, always a little disorganized, but thats ok. The villa and grounds are beautiful.
Beautiful place to hike, or to just sit and read around the peaceful garden.
Beautiful location, hiking trails, great food and wine... Real bathrooms!
