Auberge du Soleil is the Catherine Deneuve of California Wine Country, a grande dame still at the very top of her game. Twenty years since she first started welcoming guests, Auberge du Soleil lures you in with a well-trained staff and then beckons you to unwind with expansive vistas of Napa Valley's pastoral sweep. By the time you enter your Mediterranean-style room or suite, you will already have fallen under her classy spell.

At the heart of the cabernet-sauvignon- merlot and chardonnay vines of Napa Valley- the French restaurateur Claude Rouas has created a discreet and elegant hotel hidden amongst a grove of olive trees that evoke his love of Provence in the South of France. A handful of houses perched on the hillside offer spacious -maisons- with private terraces where aged French oak floors- colorful chenille fabrics- abstract paintings and fireplaces create an air of romance. The Mediterranean-inspired cuisine features the very best of the region and the spa- which also draws its cue from the land- proposes treatments based on grapes- olives- herbs- flowers- mud and minerals. The 15-000 bottles in the wine cellar promise an oenophiles journey to the wine heaven as you watch the sun setting on the horizon. CLUB 5C- Hotel welcomes Relais and Chateaux Club 5C members with a VIP Welcome and a Discovery Privilege. Please include the Club 5C membership number in the reservation and please show your Club 5C membership card on arrival.

Romance Expert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • If you can splurge, reserve one of the two private maisons. Each has an oversized tub, a fireplace, a terrace with a hot tub, and niceties such as an espresso machine.
  • Ask about romance packages. These may include accommodations, spa gifts, dinner for two, a couples massage, and a bottle of wine.
  • Rooms in the main house are above the restaurant and not as quiet or private as the others.
Mediterranean-inspired décor is just right for this luxury inn in Rutherford where every bed is draped with Italian linens and fluffy down and the bath amenities are custom-made. All rooms also have a private outdoor terrace. Accommodations range from those in the main house to stand-alone multi-room suites offering exceptional privacy and touches that make a romantic getaway divine.
