We just returned from our fifth stay at Chateau de Vie. We would never consider staying any other place in the beautiful Napa Valley. This charming B&B is run by Phillip, a master chef whose scones are to die for and Peter who is a vintner and delightful conversationalist. Honestly, we feel like we are visiting distant relatives when we... More

Places like this, and people like Peter and Phillip, completely justify the importance of research and reading reviews prior to traveling. If you've made it to this review, and you are even slightly thinking about staying at a bed and breakfast in the Napa Valley area, then you can stop your search for where to stay. We had very high...

We visited Chateau de Vie and it could not have been better. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts and the views from the house over the vineyards and mountains. This B and B receives excellent ratings and it well deserved as the owners take pride in every aspect of your stay. The place is spotless and very clean and well ran... More

Last year at this same time, we spent three nights in Napa and three nights at Chateau de Vie. This year, we spent all six nights at Chateau de Vie because we had such a great stay. Peter and Philip are great hosts, and we feel they take a sincere interest in each guest's experience. Plus, they are great guys... More

We recently stayed for the weekend in the cottage, which is separate from the main house. It is right in the vineyard and the vines are in every direction looking out the windows. All of the reviews we read on TripAdvisor were accurate. Felipe and Peter were wonderful hosts. Beautiful views. We especially enjoyed coming back to the cottage after... More

We booked the entire Chateau (5 rooms) for a family reunion. You could not ask for a more beautiful setting. It overlooks a vineyard. The house wine is served during cocktail hour with wine and cheese. The breakfasts are over the top! Gourmet level.

Wonderful B&B. About 1 mile away from Chateau Montelena (of great chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon fame, as well as Judgment of Paris). Breakfast is delicious and usually served at 9, but can be adjusted based on your schedule. No TV or telephone in our room (I suspect in none of them), but there is a telephone, and a TV hidden...

We visited CDV for a second time with two other couples as we celebrated my wife's 40th. It had been 4 years since our last visit, but we were quickly reminded of the wonderful hospitality once we were greeted by Felipe and Peter. Service, exquisite and gourmet breakfasts and hospitality are 3 qualities that you will encounter every day. The... More

My fiancé (now husband) and I got married on 9/16/16 at chateau de vie. It was the most magical experience we had. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay and get married. We stayed at the carriage house, which opens up to the winery and the view is just breathtaking. It's in a private area and detached from... More
