Local Expertise in all things Napa

We look forward to welcoming you and guiding you on your journey through Napa. With any luck, you'll learn to love the area as much as we do! Bustling with antique shops, art galleries and wine tasting rooms, the quaint towns of the Napa Valley are beautiful and fascinating in equal measure. We aim to show you it all. We have hotels and guesthouses boasting villa-like stone towers, arched walkways, and European lime plaster, combining the best of contemporary design and old-world architectural passion. Ideal lodgings in the heart of the Napa Valley are within everyone's reach.

Iconic restaurants are plentiful. We'll guide you through local dining options, whether it be casual breakfast or European-style eateries with the convivial attitude and the open-air lifestyle of the Meditteranean. Among our favorites are the Tuscan style menus that focus on seasonal ingredients and regional products including seafood and shellfish from the nearby coast, game and meat from the inland and mountain regions, and produce straight from local farms. Nothing concludes a day of exploration better than fresh ingredients and a relaxed atmosphere to share among friends. We hope that our readers and guests can share in this vivid experience with us.

Architecture in the Napa Valley is a critical part of the region's character. Enjoy ancient inspiration from the towns of Italy, peer down at open terraces and patios, and enjoy arched windows and the casual luxury of tastefully appointed guest rooms. Perhaps you prefer modern amenities, fine linens, furnishings and fabrics, generous bathrooms with radiant floor heat, double sinks, large soaking tubs, and separate showers. We'll show you hotels with lavish rooms complemented by fine art for inspiration and beauty, stylish fireplaces, and balconies. If a budget stay is better aligned with your preferences, we'll also help by guiding you through the best value-for-money stays in Napa.

Aside from sun-soaked vineyards, Napa's spas may be the most acclaimed aspect of the region. You'll find retreats that embody the philosophy of love of life and wellness of being. These spas provide personalized, nourishing services for body and soul, with features including lavender-saltwater soaking pools complete with water walls and fireplaces. Designed to be alive, flowing and spontaneous, our team strive to embrace the beautiful light of the Napa wine country.
