“Loved La Belle Epoque!!”
Reviewed November 1, 2007

My friends and I stayed at La Belle Epoque and had a wonderful experience. The Inn Keepers, Roxann and Derek, are just as lovely as the B&B. The rooms are comfortable and very homey. The evening wine reception was fun and a good way to start our first nights stay. The breakfast was served in a beautiful dining area and was delicious. La Belle Epoque is located within walking distance to downtown Napa and we were able to walk to our dinners each evening. Derek was very helpful on the phone and was able to not only make suggestions of places to eat, but he also helped make reservations for us. I would stay at La Belle Epoque next time I'm in Napa and I would also suggest it to my friends. Give it a try!

La Belle Epoque B&B , Napa Valley, California "GREAT STAY" September 2007. We recently visited Napa Valley, CA and were delighted with our stay at La Belle Epoque Bed & Breakfast. Our hosts Derek and Roxann made my husband and I feel extremely welcome. We felt like we were staying with old friends. Everything was perfect from the beautifully decorated rooms,the delicious breakfast, the supurb wine tasting in their own wine cellar and the lovely outdoor sitting area complete with hammock and homemade appetizers. We even sat and enjoyed an informal outdoor pizza party with our hosts and other guests one evening. Also, if you want to stay right in Napa within walking distance to shops and restaurants this is this place for you. All in all we would highly recommend this B&B if you want to have a great stay in Napa.

What a pleasant stay we had at La Belle Epoque. The owners were very accommodating and receptive to our needs and travel schedules. We enjoyed the evening tastings in the basement and absolutely love the garden /patio area out back. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

this place is seriously overpriced. yes, it's a charming building but the emphasis on the wine tasting (in the basement) and the breakfast (one dish for all) is misplaced. it's about them, and not the guest.

avoid the high priced suite, in the basement, next to the laundry room!

If you like B&Bs, you will love staying at La Belle Epoque. The Victorian home is beautifully decorated and the owners make it very easy and comfortable to be there. It's like visiting your sister. We stayed in the Cabernet room and the bed was comfortable with nice linens and duvet. Be aware, there are two rooms on the first floor which are very close to the dining room. There is a wine tasting with hors d'oeuvres in their wine cellar every evening. At 9 am a delicious breakfast is served on china and crystal. The owners were very easy to talk with and were very helpful in planning your day in the wine country. They have a great web site with pictures of all the rooms. Lovely place.

La Belle Epoque is a fabulous place to stay! We enjoyed every minute of it. Derek and Roxanne are so nice and very helpful finding great restaurants and wineries to visit. The breakfasts were delicious...white linens, silver and candles greeeted us in the morning. We were thrilled breakfast was served at 9:00 am instead of 8:00...after a day of wine tasting we wanted to sleep in!
We really enjoyed the wine tasting at 6:00 pm everyday in their beautiful wine cellar...very comfortable, yummy appetizers and fun conversation with other guests. The restaurants Derek and Roxanne recommended were excellent! I really enjoyed walking into Napa for dinner and having such great food.
I highly recommend La Belle Epoque for people who enjoy conversation with other guests, and appreciate the beauty and setting of this wonderful Inn. We hope to go back there some day and explore more wineries and tasty restaurants.
Derek and Roxanne...you guys are awesome!!!

My wife and I honeymooned in Napa and found the Caroline Suite (at La Belle Epoque) to be a welcoming, romantic and quiet place. Immediately upon arrival in the evening we were invited into the wine cellar for an enlightening tasting from a local vintner. We enjoyed the wine and hours dourves while gleaning insight into each different wine. Roxann and Derek were perfect hosts and provided us with the 'insiders' scoop about which restaurants and wineries to visit. We both felt that this was the perfect place to spend our honeymoon.
