Sole

Sole is the Italian word for sun, another essential element for growing wine grapes. The sunny weather in Napa helps the vines grow vigorously and makes the grapes very happy. This abundance of sunshine also tends to make the people here happy, too! Wrapped in sunny shades of yellow, this is by far our smallest, tiniest room. It is typically only suitable for one or two night stays, as it has minimal space for luggage. There is a small armoire and one dresser for clothes. Sink back into the romantic, queen sized featherbed and feel a deep sense of relaxation. There is a tiled 2-person shower.

Fantastic Napa Getaway

5 on April 25, 2014

Charming and convenient. Walking distance to lots of fine dining and tasting rooms. Couldn't have been happier with our stay!


A Pleasant 3 Night Stay during March 2014

3.8 on April 03, 2014

Old World Inn location is good and within 15 minute walk of numerous restaurants. We stayed 3 nights in La Biblioteca room located in original inn. The room was clean, relatively quiet, and comfortable. It was a bit small and didn't have a chair, barely enough room to unpack. Wardrobe closet was a bit small - could hold about 5 hangars. Dining room and food was adequate with an 8:30am breakfast service start. French press coffee, cookies, water were always available. 5:30-6:30 wine and light pupus available across the street in other Old World Inn building. Overall, we would recommend this B&B - offers good value.


Private and cozy stay at Old World Inn

4.6 on March 30, 2014

My girlfriend and I loved it here. We stayed in the Bella Tuscany and Private Cottage, which were very pleasant.


Old World Inn, Napa

4.4 on March 12, 2014

My mother and I stayed at the Old World Inn in Napa, CA for three nights to celebrate her 85th birthday. We were very impressed with the overall hospitality and ambience at the house on Jefferson Street. Our room, the Bella Tuscany,was very pleasant and being on the first floor was helpful for us. Of special note was the outstanding breakfasts that were prepared and served each day. This is no ordinary continental "serve yourself" sort of bed and breakfast. Everything is freshly prepared and served at the table to you. We loved it. I enjoyed the grounds and historical touches at this Victorian house. We would love to visit again.


Great Time to Travel to Napa

5 on March 10, 2014

My husband and I made a delightful last minute trip to Napa, and we were very lucky to have picked Old World Inn! The breakfast was splendid and kept you full till mid afternoon. The evening wine tasting in the dining room also made for a nice treat. I particularly liked how the dining area was set up for mini tables of 2 to give it that romantic feel. Other B&B's I've stayed at have done the traditional everyone gathers around the same table. The staff were very helpful in suggesting places around town to eat, and had vouchers for a good number of the wineries to visit. They really made our trip to Napa fun, romantic, and affordable.
