Overview

About the property

5,400 Sq. Ft. 3 stories, 6 Baths with Pool/Spa

Vignoble House History

Nestled among some of St. Helena’s most elegant wineries, Vignoble House is the perfect destination for wine country visitors. Before it’s 2011 renovation led by architect Jon Lail, the property was known as the Oliver House Bed and Breakfast and was aptly named due to the large olive grove that separates the home from the Silverado Trail. More than 40 olive trees remain and over 100 lavender plants line the drive and a diverse variety of plants adorn the garden and property.

The Property

Situated on four acres of ground that was settled several hundred years ago by Russian emigrants, the estate features spacious lawns, a large swimming pool, an outdoor Jacuzzi, a bocce court and decks with two separate seating areas. Antique maps and French “affiches” were carefully collected to compliment the warm and inviting great room which also features a fireplace and vaulted ceiling.

The three-story home offers numerous bedrooms: three with king-size beds and two with queen beds. The informal dining room accommodates 10 and there are family rooms on each of the two main floors. The chef's kitchen features a six-burner Viking cookstove.

Accommodations:

The Terrace Suite on the main floor features a king-size bed and en-suite bathroom. The room’s fireplace adds warmth and the room also offers access to the terrace.

The Grove Suite on the main floor features a queen-size bed and attached bathroom. The suite offers access to the terrace and overlooks the lawn and olive grove.

The Lavender Suite on Repite’s lower floor features a queen bed, en-suite bathroom with tub and art by local artists.

The Garden Suite, also located on the lower level, features a king-sized bed, a large walk-in closet and an en-suite bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub. A walk out terrace offers access to the estate’s tranquil and shady lawn.

The recreation room on the lower floor features an additional fireplace and entertaining space with a gaming table as well as walk out access to the lawn and bocce court.

Also on the lower level, the media room was designed for the sports enthusiast and features state of the art sound. Two artists are featured: Chicagoan Marc Hauser, whose portraits of Michael Jordan and Arnold Palmer are signed as well as his notable work “BF on the Beach.” In 2012, Houstonian Travis Hedemann created “French Wines” for the house as a commission and companion to his 2009 piece “Italian Wines.”

Great Property...Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Our stay wrapped up just a few days ago and our group is already discussing when we can make it back to this property!

Our group consisted of five couples and across the board we couldn't have been more impressed with the property. We utilized the pool and bocce areas nearly everyday, especially the one down day we had at the house between wine tasting excursions, and really enjoyed the outdoor aspects of this property. There was more than enough space for our entire group to relax both in and outside the house, including the kitchen/living area which seemed to be a very common gathering area for our group.

During our stay we also scheduled massage services at the house, which I would highly recommend as we did them outside on the property and my wife couldn't have been more pleased with the service. One other recommendation would be to have a chef come onsite one night to prepare, which we did our final night of the stay. In fact, we were able to have dinner at the outdoor dining table on the patio, which was the perfect way to wrap up the trip.

Finally, the property owner couldn't have been more accommodating in making sure we had everything we needed to have a very memorable stay.

We'll be back!

Napa weekend

  • 5 of 5

Great house, loved the pool and outdoor areas! We did have a bit of trouble regulating the AC, especially the upstairs bedroom. The kitchen is well stocked and it was really nice to have wine and sparkling wines available to purchase while in the house. I would recommend this home to anyone with a diverse group. We were a group of nine and the sleeping arrangements worked great. Fire pit, great deck, perfect!

Heaven in St. Helena

  • 5 of 5

Lisa who manages the property, greeted us on arrival and was very helpful during our stay. Our experience at Vignoble House was really great. Gated private access from Silverado Trail and huge parking area for all of your group's cars. Lots of attention given to details that make the property special. The comfortable french country décor and feel is perfect for the wine country. The linens and towels were top quality. Bathroom amenities were included from Napa Soap company. Plenty of firewood on property to enjoy fire pit and fireplaces. Wifi access was good. A plethora of wine glasses and plenty of dishes, etc for a large group.

Each bedroom having its own bathroom worked out great for our group and there's an extra full bathroom downstairs too. The pantry is full of basic goods left from other guests as is the fridge for condiments, so check it before you hit the grocery store. The first night we had a chef come in and prepare dinner for the group - the kitchen is wonderful. We had not seen on the ad that there was a beautiful Restoration Hardware outdoor dining table for 10 and were really excited to be able to sit out and enjoy the great weather.

The pool and spa are heated and really beautiful. We used the bocce ball court and enjoyed the great deck that looks out on it.

Day 2 it rained, but there were so many inside seating areas that there was lots of room for everyone to spread out. The media room has a wet bar area and fridge that is handy for the downstairs bedrooms and activities. Great big screen tv in media room and another one in downstairs living room area.

Day 3 the weather was cool and perfect to be outdoors and we used all of the areas. There are two firepit areas to enjoy in the evening - one wood burning and the other gas-fired. We used them both.

Location is 5 minute drive from restaurants in St. Helena. Great places to shop for the gals. Hated to leave. We will come back again!

The perfect Napa getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fantastic four days at the Vignoble property! The house and property are stunning and the location is perfect - it truly has everything we had hoped for for a fun, five couple Napa vacation. Every bedroom is lovely, the group spaces are cozy, yet stylish and the outdoor amenities are breath taking. With out hesitation I would book this lovely home again for our next trip to Napa - the entire experience exceeded our expectations!

Worth every penny!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this beautiful house in July 2012. The photographs do not do this house justice. It is impeccably decorated but feels comfortable and inviting, not stuffy. The house easily accommodates 10 people, which it did on my visit. My favorite pastime was sitting on the deck off the great room, drinking coffee and reading, while enjoying one of the most serene views of the valley. There are many things to do at the house, including swimming, hanging out in the game and media rooms, and cooking in the chef's kitchen. You are also within walking and driving distance of some of Napa's best wineries, restaurants, and spas. Check out St. Helena's main street and Calistoga for shopping and dining. We were there for the 4th of July - a perfect place to enjoy a small town parade during the day and fireworks in the valley at night. You will love your stay at one of Napa Valley's most breathtaking, welcoming homes.
