For many, the name Auberge du Soleil is associated with cuisine, the inn of the same name a delightful afterthought. It was the breathtaking Napa Valley views that inspired French-born restaurateur Claude Rouas to recreate the sun-drenched ambiance of a Provençal restaurant in the California Wine Country.
But the pleasures of a gorgeous view enjoyed with a glass of wine and an exquisite meal invite lingering and that became possible in 1985, with the opening of the inn, a collection of sun- and-earth-toned rooms and suites, each featuring French doors opening onto private terraces, cozy fireplaces and sensuous elements such as private soaking tubs for two. The Auberge’s signature style is California with the essence of Provence and it’s philosophy is based on the concept of ‘pleasure is healing.’
Auberge du Soleil perfected the art of balancing wellness with luxurious indulgence when it opened Auberge Spa, a retreat modeled after a centuries-old monastery that continues to be one of the most acclaimed spas in the country.
Today, the Auberge is as fresh and forward-thinking as it was when it pioneered a new style of laid-back luxury, now updated with a bright, rich look reminiscent of a secluded Côte d’Azur retreat.
