Situated in the quiet town of Rutherford in Napa Valley, Auberge du Soleil beautifully showcases the area's stunning vistas. But there's more than scenery to boast about here. This Auberge property also offers a well-equipped fitness center and spa, and you can arrange additional off-site activities, such as hot air balloon rides and golf outings, through the concierge. Should you prefer to stick around the resort, you can lounge away the hours by the pool, tour the Aerena Sculpture Garden or enjoy some private meditation in La Pagode. Foodies adore the gourmet meals served at the Restaurant at Auberge du Soleil, which specializes in Mediterranean cuisine and expert wine pairings. For a more relaxed atmosphere, you can grab a bite to eat at the Bistro & Bar. At the end of the day, luxury-seekers love the spacious guest rooms, which boast private balconies or terraces, fireplaces, as well as contemporary artwork and bath oils and candles for the room's soaking tubs. But keep in mind that a stay at this bit of heaven on earth – as it is often described by visitors – doesn't come cheap.

Taking a cue from the olive-tree-studded landscape, this hotel with a renowned restaurant and spa cultivates a luxurious look that blends French and California style.

The hotel’s eponymous restaurant—serving seasonal, regionally sourced dishes like orange glazed suckling pig with broccoli rabe, peanuts, and pickled mustard seed—still packs in the foodies, as it has for a quarter-century.



What started out as a Provence-style fine-dining restaurant in Northern California is now a full-fledged sanctuary for the senses.
