Luxury holidays in Calistoga

At the northern end of the Napa Valley, the pint-size city of Calistoga is famous for its hot springs, mud baths and vine-stitched surroundings. There’s no shortage of wine connoisseurs and famous faces can often be spotted here, but the city has somehow managed to hold onto its easy-going atmosphere. Spend your days touring local winemakers, trying out the restaurants and hiking through forests of petrified redwood trees, some of which are millions of years old. After dark, unwind with a soak in a hot-spring bath – the best place to enjoy a glass of Napa red.

When to go

Spring and autumn are the best times to visit. Summer is just as popular, but it’s worth knowing that Calistoga can be one of the hottest places in the Napa Valley.

Getting there

  • Planes

    The closest airport is Charles M Schulz Sonoma County Airport, a 30-minute drive from Calistoga. It’s a small airport, but well served by flights from LAX, San Diego, Denver and Portland. Oakland and San Francisco International are both within a two-hour drive.
  • Automobiles

    The car is king in California, and the wine valley is no different. Having your own set of wheels will make getting around much easier.
