Calistoga, California / Solage, Auberge Resorts Collection

Creating its own village in the Napa Valley, Solage strikes a balance between detox and retox; cottages in shades of subdued sherbet lemon scatter the landscape, encouraging guests to explore the great outdoors… and nearby wineries.

Wandering through the lowlight of early evening, garlands gently illuminate the grounds, casting a warm glow over paths veiled in luscious greenery. Matched only by the haze of Solbar’s softly dancing firepit, pull up a chair to share in a leisurely atmosphere. A firm local favourite at the heart of the resort, let time pass paired with plates of local produce, crafted into worldwide cuisine.

Leaning further into the ease of Solage life, couples looking for a spot of romantic repose need look no further than an after-hours private spa retreat. Grounding guests in the here and now, the spa’s no phone policy adds a digital detox dimension to distraction-free quality time. As the sun skirts the horizon, fresh-faced Calistoga mud baths – infused with your choice of essential oils – are closely followed by a sumptuous soak in your very own rose petal bath, complete with sparkling wine.

In the spirit of their ‘detox, retox’ motto, such slow evenings follow days spent under blue skies. Best in the autumn months, folks who like their feet on the ground can explore scenic cycles and hikes, weaving through the reds, oranges and browns of Napa’s changing vineyards. Meanwhile, those daring enough take to the skies in a hot air balloon at sunrise, soaring high above the Mayacamas Mountains.


Travel Notes

  • 100 studios and suites, decorated in tones to echo Napa Valley’s Vineyards
  • Giving a sweet scent to your room, handpick fresh flowers from the cart at Solbar’s patio
  • Branch out with days spent trying new activities, from seasonal celebrations to smores by the fire
  • In the summer months, Sunday pool parties go hand in hand with tipsy tipple themes
  • Offering ultimate relaxation, the spa soothes the senses with calming music, a eucalyptus steam room, and five geo-thermal pools
  • Solbar’s scrumptious weekend brunches are popular, but new kid on the block Pico Bar is tough competition, serving poolside Mexican delights

When to visit California

Summer in California is hot and dry with cool evenings, whilst winter tends to be milder with a little rain between January and March. Winters in San Francisco can be chilly and foggy, whilst Los Angeles can be smoggy in the summer months. On Lake Tahoe, expect cold and snowy winters, and although summer days can be warm, the evenings can still be chilly. To guarantee the best prices for your luxury family holiday, we recommend booking at least a year in advance for the following summer holidays.
