Villa Fontana Retirement in San Jose, CA
4.8

What stuck out to us most about Villa Fontana was the fact that it is smaller, there is only 80 residents total. It is also a family owned facility. I would tell others looking to take a tour and meet the staff, they have been very good with communicating about what is going on. It is a nice facility to have a loved one in and I would recommend them to others.
