Travel Tuesday - Auberge Du Soleil!

New Travel Tuesday Series! 

I LOVE staying in hotels...especially luxury hotels and I have not blogged about them enough lately!  We are going on a trip to Italy in August and while researching things to do, I realized how helpful it is when people blog about places they have been.  So, I am going to feature a different hotel every Tuesday.  Most hotels will be places I have stayed so I can give you an insider view.

They will be short reviews with gorgeous pictures but as always, feel free to contact me and I can let you know more about my favorite fab hotels!!


Ahhhh....Auberge du Soleil...the first Travel Tuesday Hotel!  The Auberge is located in Napa Valley.  As soon as you drive onto the property, you know that you are in a special place!  There are rooms in the main house and there are rooms located in buildings scattered around the hillside which makes the Auberge Du Soleil feel really secluded and intimate.  I can't even describe to you how beautiful the sweeping views of Napa Valley are from the terrace at the main house.



We stayed in one of the garden view rooms on the hillside and it was perfect! 
When we walked into the room I was blown away!  It has the most laid back yet luxurious feel...I didn't want to have to even leave the room to go to dinner! 



Speaking of dinner...the Auberge Du Soleil's main restaurant is Michelin rated and is supposed to be fantastic.  We decided to go off property for dinner so I did not get to experience the main restaurant.  We did eat lunch and had drinks and appetizers in the Bistro & Bar and it was great! 


The Spa at Auberge du Soleil is the nicest spa that I have ever been to!  Above is a picture of the courtyard in the spa area and below is a picture of the infinity spa pool.  Amazing!  The amenities are to die for and I had the best massage...ever!!!


The service at the Auberge is excellent.  They planned our day of wine tasting and made all our tasting reservations for us.  They recommended some amazing wineries.  It has been a long time since we stayed here and writing this post is making me remember how special this hotel really is!  If you get a chance to stay here, you will not be disappointed!

P.S.  I am having trouble with feedburner so I hope this goes out to my email subscribers.  If you did not get yesterday's post on La Scala you can see it here.
