Holidays like Julia Roberts and Sara Sampaio with a stay at the exclusive Auberge du Soleil

Exclusive: the five-star resort of Auberge du Soleil resides on 33 incredible acres in Napa Valley

At Auberge du Soleil, an impressive five-star resort set on delicious vineyards in Napa Valley, it's easy to feel dizzy, and that's not just about the excellent local wine. It's the landscape, the service, the whole shebang.

Auberge is well known as the most dreamed (and most exclusive) of hotels in the wine country. No wonder it is the fate of the A-lists such as Julia Roberts, Christina Aguilera and Sara Sampaio. I wanted to treat my mother as the star she is, and win the Daughter of the Year award in the process, so we headed to the hills in search of total luxury too.

Spoiler, we found it.

The hotel is a small portion of Provence located on 33 acres in the heart of Napa's sun-soaked vineyards. Perched on the top of a long, winding road just an hour and 20 minutes by car from San Francisco, Auberge looks out onto lush green gardens and olive groves that line the gentle slopes, with bright blue skies that turn into magical pink at sunset. It is spectacular

It's a paradise for wine lovers, of course, but the adults-only resort really offers a complete sensory experience. It is the home of a restaurant awarded with a Michelin star, a beautiful swimming pool, a state-of-the-art gym and a divine spa, so you can savor, swim, steam, sweat and mock in style.

The Michelin star restaurant is worth booking the trip alone. Overlooking the stunning Napa hills, the restaurant serves bright and clean dishes, such as charred tuna and veal pave, combined with local wines.

Food and wine are the center of attention, but there is also the murmur of the guests who laugh, the clink of wine glasses and the impeccable staff who ensure that their night is served with a heavy side of the occasion, the celebration and romance. The outdoor terrace frames a view of the idyllic gardens and the majestic mountains of Mayacamas, the earthy tones of the landscape that combine with the elegant interior.

The hotel opened its doors in 1985, but was recently remodeled by the famous designer Suzanne Tucker, who reimagined the 50 rooms and suites with a rustic and contemporary ambience, taking note of the beautiful landscape that develops from the individual private patios.

Deep baths, luxurious celestial beds, a complete free minibar and all the modern comforts you could want for your interior. If the rest of the resort was not so wonderful, I honestly would not want to leave your room.

Unrolling in the spa is a must. With a range of treatments available, two steam rooms, pools of cold, hot and hot water, it is the perfect place to rejuvenate the body and mind.

Possibly I had my best facial so far, the best Best of Auberge (90 minutes, $ 325) that used a fantastic NUFACE device and left my skin with moist and hydrated skin and an immediate visible firmness. The piece of resistance was the exclusive use of the Active Botanical Serum Vintner & # 39; s Daughter, the Holy Grail of the oils, which is produced locally but now enjoys worldwide fame.

The resort is romantic, but not exclusive for couples. He offered us the perfect place to make memories of mother and daughter that will really last a lifetime, but we also met two old friends celebrating a special birthday and a family that flew half the world for their annual meeting.

One morning we watched a very excitable guy and his wife get to the pool. The first to admire the place my mother and I reflected, although later we discovered that it was the 11th visit of couples. Auberge du Soleil delights the devotees again and again, the staff is amazing and the impressive complex really is the last word in elegance.

Even the mention of the name Auberge evokes joy. When writing this at the Dumbo house in New York, a man learned on my screen, "Ohh, the Auberge. I still have to leave, but it's next on my list.

Make it yours too.
