September will be our two year wedding anniversary, and we had a truly magical wedding at Relais du Soleil. Perfect weather, lovely venue, and we really enjoyed working with Tim. We had an excellent wedding planner, Peter Ruiz, and he worked with Tim to have everything delivered and beautiful for the big day. I had worked for years with Wild...

It was lovely to be welcomed by Tim with a glass of excellent home produced wine. An amazing house with incredible sculptures dotted around the garden. It was great to share the enormous breakfast with others visiting the area and swop stories of travels. A truly idyllic setting just sorry we could have spent more time there. Great place to...

Tim was a magnificent host and quite frankly, we feel blessed that we stumbled upon his dwellings rather than stay in an anonymous hotel in Sonoma or Glen Ellen. He is a true Epicurean and it was wonderful to be welcomed into his tranquil home and share his wine and his magnificent breakfasts. His decor and interests in antique furniture...

My husband and I have visited the Napa region a few times and always love to visit Relais du Soleil. It's tucked away, quiet, peaceful, and restorative. Tim is a generous host who will tell you stories, give you wine, and treat you to a delicious home-made breakfast before you leave. I would highly recommend staying here for a night...

We had the opportunity to spend a night at Relais du Soleil and it was great! My wife and I were greeted by Tim, the Innkeeper that evening and treated to some of his Gold Medal winning Zin blend. The cottage was quaint and comfortable, but the gourmet breakfast he prepared for us the next morning was a foodie's delight....

My father and I were on a long road trip from Vancouver to Los Angeles. Finding Tim and his rustic oasis was just what we needed. He and his pup greeted us with open arms, local cheese and his wine straight from the barrel. Tim is such a lovely guy and he is truly opened his home and everything that...

Any time I'm close to the Napa Valley I scheme of ways to get back here. It's a favorite destination for me and an absolute must for you. The scenic drive from Napa (the city) brings you through the trees, over a ridge on a windy road. As you arrive at the property, you cross over a small creek and...

My trip was topped off as perfect all because of this property and the wonderful hospitality of Tim. My mother and I share our birthday so every single year it is special and we spent the majority of our trip by the hot tub or in the barn drinking wine and socializing with friends! There were 7 of us in...

Absolutely beautiful spot for a wedding. The owner is a lot of fun and his Rhodesian ridgeback is a terrific greater. Guests from all over the country have raved about what a wonderful time they had. If you want to have a wedding in the wine country, this is the place.
