Sonoma Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description
Secluded 1 acre property with 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms only 2 miles from Square
Welcome to The Fir & The Fig!
We are set on a private road 2 miles east of the Sonoma plaza and walking distance or a short bike ride to some of California's oldest and best wineries. Our location is in the heart of the wine country and only 40 miles from the Golden Gate Bridge. We're on Sonoma's coveted east side so Napa is easily accessible in 15 minutes drive. You can start your day with a drive to Napa or just enjoy the laid back historic wineries all around you in Sonoma. We are uniquely positioned with wineries all around on old country roads so minimal traffic. This offers a unique opportunity to tour the area by foot or on bikes. There is a great article on our direct website along with a map with more details. Our favorite mode of transportation is cruising the bikes to a couple wineries en rout to the famous Sonoma plaza which offers an abundance of tasting rooms, 5 star restaurants and great markets. The plaza also hosts many great festivals throughout the summer and fall so you never know what you might roll up on.
Now that you know what's around us let's talk about the great property you would be enjoying when you're not out and about. We just finished major renovation in spring of 2013 so everything including the beds are brand new. We have a large hot tub just off the back deck and we recently added a large (20' x 12' x 48' deep) above ground pool that’s perfect for cooling off or sunbathing on a hot summer day. It's tucked behind our garage so feels very private but has a lovely view over the grounds and tree filled hillside. Please note that the pool is seasonal and taken down during the cooler months.

We live in the Bay Area and fell in love with Sonoma's east side over the many years of renting homes. After a long search we finally found the place of our dreams here on Sonoma's east side. Looking forward to retiring here one day.
Chris purchased this chateau / country house in 2012
Why Chris chose Sonoma
We love accessibility of this property from the Bay Area but yet how far away you actually feel. It's the perfect escape without the long travel time. We especially love the ability ride bikes or walk and enjoy nearby attractions without getting in our car.
What makes this chateau / country house unique
Location, location, location! We love the secluded feel of our property while being such close proximity to so may great wineries and the Sonoma Square.
