The pictured house is yards from a Chardonnay vineyard, and sets the stage for romance with its verdant grounds, cozy fireplace and views of hot air balloons, sunsets. For the price–$325 to $375 a night–you could even make it a couples’ escape with a select few of your foodie friends. The haven is one mile from Highway 29, enabling easy access to Napa Valley’s hundreds of wineries and award-winning restaurants like French Laundry, Celadon, Domaine Chandon and Tra Vigne.
Before you leave, you’ll want to clear out your trunk. You’ll want plenty of room for all those cases of Cab Franc.
