Why Stay At The Chauvet

In the heart of Sonoma Valley, this renovated Italianate-style property—a National Historic Landmark—combines full-service apartment suites with all the amenities of a fine hotel (a quiet pool, private balconies), plus easy access to California's top restaurants and wineries.

The Scoop

Originally built in 1906 as one of Sonoma's finest hotels, the structure fell into disrepair before being resurrected in 2005. Now, it's home to six 2,000 square foot suites, each featuring three bedrooms, two baths, and a gourmet kitchens (stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, gas range, and an all-important Sonoma staple, the personal wine cooler). Plus, each suite opens onto a spacious balcony with views of the surrounding hillside wineries and the pool and courtyard below. But many guests spend their days outside the property: a mile stroll from The Chauvet is Jack London State Historic Park and the ruins of London's Wolf House; Quarryhill Botanic Garden, with one of the largest collections of temperate Asian plants in North America, is down the road; and then, of course, there are the nearby wineries, known for bottling Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Insider Tips

Be sure to take advantage of the Sonoma Valley B&B Association passport, presented to guests on arrival, for free tastings at nearly 30 of the area's best wineries.

Tour the property itself: the hotel has numerous original works by local artists on display (and for sale).

Preferred Airport

Arrive at San Francsico International Airport (SFO), which is approximately 65 miles (1.5 - 2 hours) from the hotel.
