Sebastopol vacation rentals

Tipples and top stays in Sebastopol

A few valleys over from Napa, California's wine country is still in full swing. You'll find it spreading out in undulating fields of vineyards around the little town of Sebastopol, a place once given over to apple farms but now with a penchant for the reds and whites and bubblies. All around the center and the region, you'll find charming Sebastopol vacation rentals. Some are low-rise bungalows overlooking the vineyards. Others are cozy boltholes with self-catering kitchens. Others are opulent estate homes with pools and wine cellars of their own.

Sweet wines in Sebastopol

It's no secret that wine tasting takes center stage in Sebastopol. Everything from self-guided tours of the whole valley to guided excursions on minibuses from cellar door to cellar door are on the menu, along with a whole host of chilled tasting rooms in the heart of the town proper. That's not it though. Sebastopol vacation rentals can also be your ticket to hearty country apple fairs, the culinary workshops of nearby Santa Rosa, and the glorious trails on the Sonoma Coast.

Popping the cork in Sebastopol

From the cuvee vintages of the Iron Horse Vineyards to the leafy grounds of the Lynmar Estate to the Syrah and Grenache creations of the Scherrer Winery, and to countless more cellar doors besides, there are loads of places to go and enjoy a tipple or few of Cali's finest near Sebastopol. Others might prefer something a tad more adventurous, for which there's always the Sonoma Coast State Park and Bodega Bay on the Pacific to the west – head there for blustery hiking trails, secluded beaches, and maybe even a sighting of a whale in the water.

Sultry days in Sebastopol

Wine tasters and grape aficionados assemble in Sebastopol for the summer and the fall. The months from May to August are a great time to bag Sebastopol vacation rentals in the vineyards, and to join tasting tours of the California wine region. Early spring, in April, is the time to come to join the annual Apple Blossom Festival, while it's September that heralds the main grape harvest and the culinary fairs that go with it. Late winter, meanwhile, has the best whale spotting conditions along the Sonoma Coast.

Sebastopol offers hills and wetlands

Sebastopol is encased in a wide valley that ranges from dust-topped, golden-hued hills typical of northern California and the Napa area, down to low-lying wetlands. It's the latter habitat that you're most likely to encounter close to the center of town, in the form of the sprawling Laguna de Santa Rosa. It's packed with little ponds and puddles, hosting salamanders and owls and more. The Cali coast also beckons. Head to Bodega Bay for visions of roaring waves and splashing whales, or up to the Sonoma Coast State Park for rocky coves and beaches.
