Vineyards and rustic charm in California's Sonoma County

Famous for producing many popular Californian wines, Sonoma County has a rustic appeal, with small towns dotted in between the vast vineyards. Many Sonoma County vacation rentals can be found along the rugged, natural coast, which has small, secluded beaches and unspoiled landscapes, perfect for an escape from the city. Sonoma County also has an excellent range of cozy restaurants, from bistros to diners, and it's a popular spot for a weekend of shopping, boasting a large outlet mall, out-of-town shopping centers and small-town artisanal stores.

Things to do

Go wild with a Sonoma County safari

Safari West gives you the experience of a safari, without the long flight to Africa. Hop onboard a rugged 4X4, and you'll be whisked along bumpy tracks, with wild animals running freely around the site. Without cages, you can see the animals run and play in their natural environment, and each habitat has been made to resemble their natural homes. Kids will especially love the friendly animals such as giraffes, which often walk right up to your safari vehicle, allowing you to feed them treats and get some great photos.


Wine tasting in Sonoma County

There are even Segway tours, so you can zip along the country lanes. Booking a Sonoma County vacation rental means time to explore the area's wineries, with over 400 in total. You can combine your trip with a visit to nearby Napa Valley for a wine lover's dream vacation.

Perfect wine-making weather in Sonoma County

Sonoma County has the perfect conditions for growing grapes, with mild weather all year round and few frosty days. June to October is the most popular time to book Sonoma County vacation rentals, with pleasantly warm sunny days and hardly any rain. However, with attractions such as the wineries open year-round, it's also worth visiting during the spring, when it's still warm and any rain clears away quickly. Close to the coast, it can be cooler than inland, with coastal fog a common sight, although this often clears by noon, letting the California sunshine come through.

Natural features

Redwoods and rugged beaches in Sonoma County

Wander around the shady, mossy trails and you'll feel dwarfed by these trees, many of which are 100s of years old. Sonoma County also has rugged coastlines, featuring popular beaches such as Bodega Bay, where whales frolic off the coast. The Sonoma Coast State Park also offers rocky coves and secluded beaches.
