The Napa Valley is not only beautiful and home to a stunning variety of world-class wineries and restaurants, but it’s also a close-knit and vibrant community of people who love this land and the small-town charms of running into neighbors at the farmers’ market and cheering for each other’s children at a local Little League game.
Each community has its own unique personality and characteristics. St. Helena offers grand vineyard estates that sit behind gated drives and rows of olive trees. Rutherford’s homes, tucked away among the vineyards, offer panoramic views of the valley. The city of Napa’s housing features charming cottages, bungalows, Victorians, and Queen Annes. Angwin offers small living in a college town up Howell Mountain. Yountville is a very walkable and bike-able town of boutiques, art galleries, antique stores, great restaurants, and geothermal spas. Calistoga retains its small-town charm, with a main street that offers an eclectic mix of shopping, tasting rooms, and restaurants.
