Property description

Available once again after two years of a long term rental by a Family from Boston. We prefer residences of from 1 to 12 months duration from either private or corporate persons.

Wild Horse is a unique, little known gem of a valley within 15 minutes and 1000 feet elevation above the town of Napa and some of the best restaurants and vineyards in the United States.

The property is bordered on the west and south by the Vallejo natural reserve, to the east by Wild Horse ranch and to the north by vineyards. This remodeled farm house/chalet is quiet, clean, private and convenient.

The adjoining countryside is rich in wild life and excellent for bird watching,

There is an olive grove and horses on the property.

Rates are monthly. Please contact the owners for other terms.
