The Best Vacation Rentals for a Girls' Weekend in California Wine Country - Napa & Sonoma (October 2021)

California's Wine Country is the perfect destination for hanging out with friends or enjoying a reunion weekend. There are world class spas, award winning restaurants, luxurious villas, and of course…wine. There's plenty of wine.

The beautiful setting, with rolling hills cloaked in vineyards, will make the perfect backdrop for your girls weekend getaway. Whether you're looking for a relaxing retreat or planning to party into early morning hours, this region really does have it all.

For groups hoping to stay together in one setting, vacation rentals, rental homes, Airbnb's and VRBO's offer an affordable and fun option for the whole group. There are no shortage of villas, farmhouses, and swanky apartments to choose from throughout California's famed wine country.



But before you choose your home for the weekend, it's best to understand the region. Many people get confused by what Napa and Sonoma actually mean geographically. These names refer to both towns, counties, and valleys, and for many visitors the labeling can get confusing. Napa and Sonoma are also relatively far apart, and the trip between the two can take upwards of an hour or more to make. Make sure you understand the area before you choose which place best meets your needs. Below is a brief overview of what every area in wine country has to offer and how the geography is laid out.

Napa

Napa County

Napa County includes nine cities and towns, including the town of Napa. There are 450 wineries with tasting rooms sprinkled throughout the county.

Napa Valley

Napa Valley runs through the middle of the county for about 30 miles. It's 5 miles wide at its widest point. The valley is at the heart of Napa's wine region and it's where some of the world's most sought after wines are produced. Popular wine varieties coming out of Napa Valley include Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, but there are also Pinot Noir, Merlot, Zinfandel, and Sauvignon Blanc produced there as well.

If you're looking for pampering and high end living during your girls weekend, then Napa Valley is likely your style. It has an upscale vibe with world class wineries, five star restaurants, and internationally recognized wine brands. The landscape is dotted with vineyards, and the castle like wineries of the area provide a sense of awe. Many of the wineries have tasting fees that are a bit more expensive than those in Sonoma Valley, but if you're a group looking for a high end experience, then Napa won't disappoint.

There are two main routes through Napa Valley. Highway 29 is a beautiful two lane road that wanders from north to south through the valley, passing through many of the region's most popular towns. This is a popular route that can get quite crowded during the busy times. Alternatively, the Silverado Trail, often referred to as simply The Trail is east of Highway 29 and passes by several popular wineries. There are several smaller roads that connect the Trail to Highway 29.

Along Highway 29 you'll find the towns of Napa, Yountville, St. Helena, and Calistoga.



The City of Napa

Although it was once overlooked by visitors to wine country, The City of Napa has really grown in popularity in recent years. The riverfront and downtown areas have come to life and these days you'll find the town filled with excellent restaurants, boutique shops, and friendly cafes. There are a number of tasting rooms worth experiencing and the Saturday farmers market offers a local flair with homegrown specialties. For groups that want to make the most of being outdoors, you can rent kayaks and head down the Napa River.

The City of Napa has a number of apartments and condos available as vacation rentals which you can see here. For larger groups, villas can be found a bit further away from downtown. Many villas have their own swimming pool or hot tubs, which are perfect for groups who want to lounge in the sun with a glass of wine. Vacation rentals, VRBO's, and AirBnB's range in price from $150 to $500 a night and options include rustic cottage homes, swanky apartments, and everything in between.
