We stayed in Chateau de Vie for 4 nights in Mid-June; I selected this place solely based on great reviews here and was expecting something exceptional but my expectations were greatly exceeded Many people speak about friendly owners - but they are not just friendly, - they treat you like a close family (thank you, Peter) Many people speak about...

Peter and Phillip make the Chateau de Vie the most warm, welcoming and FUN! place to stay. Absolutely not one single detail is left out of this magnificent B&B. The breathtaking views, immaculate home, delicious breakfasts on the patio every morning and impeccable service by every single person is simply amazing. I cannot say enough wonderful things about it. I'll... More

Having spent a weekend here, it's easy to see why CDV has an almost unblemished string of 5-star reviews. The setting is perfect for relaxing (as we did) or for touring wineries, while the room was probably the most comfortable in which we stayed during a tour of California, the coffee outside the room in the morning was a great...

I cannot say enough about how wonderful our experience was at Chateau de Vie. So special and beyond all expectations. I cannot wait to return soon! Philipe was more than welcoming upon our arrival offering us wine, a beautiful cheese plate, snacks, a tour, restaurant recommendations, and spectacular conversation. I could listen to his stories all night. You cannot beat... More

More of a luxurious stay with great friends than B&B. This is THE perfect place to stay when visiting Napa Valley; this place far exceeded every one of my expectations! Where to begin? The Chateau is this beautiful home with gorgeous ivy growing all over it. It just oozes charm at every corner. There is no detail left behind or... More

We spent a fabulous 3 nights at CDV as part of our 25th anniversary trip to California and straight after 3 nights camping in Yosemite so we were really excited to have a soft bed and indoor plumbing! If you are from the UK forget the term B&B to describe CDV. It is far and beyond what you would expect.... More

Peter and Philip were two of the most attentive hosts that we have ever come across and cared deeply about each guests stay. We were so fortunate to come across this gem of a place. As soon as we arrived we were blown away by the dream like view of Chateau de Vie's vineyard beyond their garden decking area with... More

We are so happy we opted to stay at CDV over Memorial weekend while we were in town for a wedding. After reading the earlier reviews, my boyfriend and I (along with another couple) chose CDV and I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Philip and Peter were the BEST hosts. They gave us recommendations to small wineries that were less... More

There's a lot of 5 Star reviews for Chateau de Vie and they are warranted because the owners have done a really great job and have the eye for detail that small independent hoteliers can sometimes have. I gave it 3 Stars because we stayed in the room at the top of the house and there were no blinds on... More

So sorry to hear we did not meet the expectations of these. During our welcome we share with all of our guest the different amenities that we offer and that are included in each guest room. Our 3rd floor King Jr Suite has sun blocking shades on each window, including all three skylight windows. So sorry they missed them. We... More
