Bardessono: A Modern Hotel with a Conscience

One could argue that Yountville has earned the reputation as Napa Valley's theme park — a Wine Country Disneyland, "Yount Vegas"— with its many Tuscan-style villas and Parisian bistros. "It's just like being in Italy" you can hear the tourists coo. Or France or the English Countryside. Anywhere but Napa.

But Bardessono embraces California, making good use natural materials — salvaged wood, organic linens — and all that Napa Valley sunshine — each room has 200 square feet of glass and about half of the energy for the hotel is provided by its own solar panels.

The LEED Platinum-certified hotel, which also houses Lucy Restaurant + Bar, is luxury and comfort simplified — because, do you really need Corinthian Columns or water-spouting statuettes to know you're on vacation?

Before 2009, this six-acre luxury estate in the middle of Yountville was the 80-year-old Bardessono family homestead, a quiet farm and vineyard where the focus was on the land. In its new, modern incarnation as one of Napa Valley’s top luxury hotels, the focus hasn’t changed. Not only is the resort LEED certified, but the owners have bent over backward to make sure that it leaves a minimal footprint on the environment, with solar panels on all roofs, low water usage and graywater recycling facilities, and salvaged building materials. The on-site garden, which provides much of the seasonal produce for the fine-dining restaurant, is certified organic, and the award-winning chef works with the area’s top local purveyors to source fresh, sustainably produced ingredients. Even the wine list eschews a Cali-only theme in favor of small-batch wines from biodynamic, organic, and sustainable wineries around the world. Rather than have a gym in which guests can work out, shielded from the outdoors, there’s a house bike shop and a rooftop pool, so guests can get their exercise outside. Spa treatments, too, are designed with natural ingredients and traditional practices. Nature can really be quite luxurious.

Just ten miles north of Napa, you'll find the modern, warm, and welcoming oasis of Bardessono Hotel and Spa. Placed perfectly in the quaint town of Yountville, it thrives by providing an exclusive escape while also remaining environmentally conscious.

The service and privacy at Bardessono allow you to feel miles away from the more congested parts of the Napa area, yet some of the regions best restaurants and wine bars lay just outside the hotel doors.
