The first modern boutique resort to open in Napa Valley—back in 1985—is still one of the area’s best. From the outside, Auberge’s sandstone-colored villas, scattered among 33 acres of olive groves, evoke the terraced houses of the French Riviera; inside, the 50 rooms continue the theme with Balinese recycled wood floors and rattan ceiling fans, fabrics in Mediterranean hues, wood-burning fireplaces, and French doors leading to private verandas. The treatments at the 7,000-square-foot spa all incorporate ingredients harvested from the local hillsides (an especially delicious option: the Meyer lemon–olive oil massage). And the hotel’s eponymous restaurant—where chef Robert Curry serves seasonal, regionally sourced dishes like orange glazed suckling pig with broccoli rabe, peanuts and pickled mustard seed—still packs in the foodies, as it has for a quarter-century.

No guests under 16.

Room to Book:

Of the standard Maison rooms, those with an upper valley view are the best; they're on the top floor, with vistas over surrounding vineyards.

Insider Tip:

 Each guest room has a full bar, stocked with locally made wine and beer.
