Napa and Sonoma Valleys are sonomanous (sorry) with elegant country properties that verge on the cutesy, but Solage Calistoga breaks the mould in style.

Will, Kate B and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

Described by the owners (who also own Calistoga Ranch and Auberge du Soleil) as Napa barn meets San Francisco loft this mash up of styles works well. As with most of the properties in the winelands, the site is expansive, with an emphasis on walking to your room that will perfectly suit the younger, more outdoorsy guest.

There are 89 rooms and suites in total, most of which is in studio-style accommodation with partially separated bed/living rooms and bathrooms. The best bit is that they are all housed in barns spread across the grounds, and none of the rooms share a wall, so it is quiet and private and they all have their own outdoor space.

The Solbar restaurant and bar is yet another Michelin starred establishment with an innovative and well priced menu. The resident mixologist was also recently voted bartender of the year, so we highly recommend stopping by for a cocktail. The restaurant and bar are in the same big room, with a very chilled feel, and with views out over the huge swimming pool. There is also a fine spa.

Why we love it

A studio room comes with two bicycles, a great way to get around the property and into Calistoga town itself.
