One of the world’s premier wine regions, Napa Valley has more than 400 wineries that draw wine enthusiasts from across the globe for touring and tasting.

It isn’t just for wine enthusiasts, however, as the area is jam-packed with all sorts of things to do.

This region includes the major towns of Napa, Yountville, St. Helena, and Calistoga, and offers not just award-winning vino, but also gourmet cuisine, spa treatments, soaks in hot springs, cultural attractions, hiking and biking trails, and even thrilling adventures like hot-air balloon rides.

Whether you want to base yourself in the south end of the valley in Napa, further north in Calistoga, or somewhere in between, you’re sure to find the perfect place to stay on this list of the best airbnbs in Napa Valley. Remember that traffic can get a little heavy on the weekends in Napa, so if there’s a winery you really want to visit, it may be worth choosing lodging nearby.

The home is perfectly located, convenient to both Napa and Yountville, and made for easy travels out to vineyards and restaurants. The home was so pleasant that we found ourselves settling in for dinner there every night instead of going out! And waking up to see the vines outside was also a highlight.”
