Originally opened as a restaurant in 1981 by French restaurateur Claude Rouas and his partner Robert Harmon have created Auberge Du Soleil, one of the premier resorts in Napa Valley hidden amongst a grove of olive trees that evokes a love of Provence and the South of France. With its amazing views, the resort offers spacious “maisons” perched on the hillside overlooking the sculpture garden which features over 100 works by renowned artists. The Mediterranean-inspired cuisine features the very best of the region. The spa, which also draws on the land, offers treatments based on grapes, olives, herbs, flowers, mud and minerals. The 15,000 bottles in the wine cellar will transport wine connoisseurs to heaven, as they watch the sun setting on the horizon. It’s the pretty much the perfect place to end up after a long day of winery-hopping.
