Sonoma County in Northern California is a hub of good taste. With numerous wineries and vineyards, an enviable collection of gourmet restaurants, and breathtaking natural beauty, the towns of this charming county promise the good life. The Chauvet in Glen Ellen, home to world-class wineries and the Jack London State Historic Park, presents a uniquely luxurious way to enjoy this spectacular scenery. A National Historical Landmark, this lovingly restored Italianate-style masterpiece has been converted into six spacious condominiums, reappointed by craftsmen, polished with upscale interiors and state-of-the art amenities. Each three-bedroom unit reflects the chic style of the area, with modern furnishings and gracious windows overlooking ancient oak trees and a courtyard pool. The Chauvet is a chance to make this life of simple pleasures your own.
Hiking, biking and nature trails crisscross the parks and vineyards of Sonoma County, presenting inspiring vistas and idyllic picnic spots. Wine tastings are a delight, and with the nearby Arrowood, Buena Vista, Ledson, and Landmark Deerfield wineries, entire days can be devoted to such tastings. Golfers will find a bounty of world-class courses, and gourmands can explore Glen Ellen's quaint main street filled with exquisite bistros and restaurants. At The Chauvet, enjoy a relaxing seasonal swim or leisurely afternoon on the sundeck. Test new menus in the state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen, and serve them around the spacious dining room table, perhaps with a recently discovered wine. The Chauvet is a perfect retreat into the heart of wine country, and into the lap of leisurely living.
