Why Vacation in Napa?
Napa Valley offers a luxury vacation with the sweet charm you want for a weekend getaway or week-long adventure! With many world class restaurants, spas and wineries why not treat yourself to the best luxuries in life?
Start your time at a resort! Enjoy the pool, spa amenities, or restaurant to relax after traveling. Most hotels in the Napa area are equipped with a place to grab a glass of quality wine to unwind. Check out your accommodation's Spa Menu to make sure you take some time for relaxation during your trip. For the adventurous, try booking a mud bath spa treatment - they are very popular in Calistoga!
For lunch or dinner, Napa Valley is a foodie heaven. There are world class restaurants in each town: Napa, Yountville, Rutherford, St. Helena and Calistoga. These well-known restaurants have educated Sommeliers who can recommend the perfect wine pairing or help you pop open a bottle you purchased while out wine tasting. Make sure to research in advance and book reservations to ensure you can dine at your preferred locations!
