We live nearby and are always looking for a beautiful, comfortable place to stay. We usually go to the coast but this weekend decided to look inland. We went to Calistoga with a list from Trip Advisor and our handy navigation system. Chateau de Vie was one of the first places we stopped but were too early to see a room so we went to main street and started searching for the perfect location. All I can say is Calistoga hotels and B&B's need a serious overhaul. We encountered several run down, smelly, places with a high price of admission. We ended discouraged and back at Chateau de Vie. The owner, Peter was friendly (another rarity) and had one of the smaller rooms available. The energy is very peaceful and quiet, the grounds are meticulously cared for and the pool was perfection as was the hot tub that stays open till midnight for star gazing. Every aspect of the Chateau was clean and beautiful. Breakfast in the morning was delicious and abundant and Phillip was very accommodating in serving us late. We moved the second night to the cottage suite and can't say enough about the privacy, tasteful decor, comfort and elegance of this gem! Thank you Phillip and Peter for a beautiful place to stay. We will be back.
