As an art student in San Francisco, I spent many summers working on weddings and events in nearby Napa Valley. I have such wonderful memories from that gorgeous place. So when I returned there just last week, it was a trip filled with great ideas and inspiration to share with you all!
I can't say enough good things about the fantastic Auberge du Soleil, where we stayed for the week. The lush landscape and terraced walkways make you feel as if you've been transported to Provence. The views are incredible and the food is exquisite, whether you're planning for a wedding or your honeymoon. Here are beautiful photos by Jack Myers from our recent visit.
As you can see, the landscaping is so lush and beautiful. Each room, villa, and cottage is nestled into a portion of the hillside, and guests are surrounded by plants and trees for additional privacy. The views from each room are so lovely!
A view of my fabulous room -- so cozy, inviting, and perfectly luxurious. Auberge is a Relais & Chateaux property, so the amenities are exquisite.
A view from the terrace connected to my room -- you can imagine the amazing sunsets!
Beautiful Napa from my room!
I had a great time exploring the enchanting gardens and the many trails on the property.
I love these giant metal flowers in the sculpture garden. They conjured up lots of great ideas for an upcoming event!
The spa is incredible. You can really enjoy the outdoors as you relax before and after experiencing one of the many services the Spa at Auberge offers.
Rosemary and grape vines -- two of my favorite, quintessential Napa Valley elements!
Auberge du Soleil is definitely a location to consider for your wedding plans or honeymoon! Next week I'll be talking about our visit to local vineyards, restaurants, and shops in Napa and San Francisco!
