Tucked cozily into the northernmost reaches of the Napa Valley, Calistoga has long beckoned visitors with its verdant vineyards, country-cute downtown and renowned mineral waters.  Read on for tips on what to do when in town - because there are spoils aplenty to unearth in this Eden après tasting.

Dubbed a "quintessential American travel experience" by Conde Nast Traveler, Golden Haven's signature mud bath is a Calistoga must-do.  Available for singles or couples, the treatment pairs a detoxifying mud immersion with a nourishing clay mask, followed by a mineral water-fed Jacuzzi soak and soothing warm blanket wrap.  Once you're through, continue unwinding with another treatment (favorites include herbal facials, massages and body wraps) or invigorate with a few laps in the pool.  In all, it's a sure-fire recipe for R&R, Calistoga style, and ensures you'll be in a perfect state of Zen as you head out on the town or tasting.

Solage Calistoga - part of the über luxe Auberge group of resorts - is the closest thing to a trifecta you'll find in Calistoga: it marries casually elegant lodging with a Michelin-starred restaurant and sublime spa.  So far, so good.  But a bonus that's little discussed (read: underused) is the spot's duo of manicured bocce ball courts, available for use on a first-come, first-served basis to visitors.  Particularly on lazy summer evenings, there's little better to be done than sipping a chilled glass of wine from the adjacent SolBar while playing bocce in the shadow of the gracious mountains that frame this northern stretch of Napa Valley.  Just don't blame us when you're loath to leave:  Calistoga has a habit of drawing you in.
