MILL VALLEY, CALIF. (September 16, 2013) – Auberge Resorts properties are the choice of Andrew Harper’s Hideaway readers, according to the publication’s newly released 2013 Reader Survey, which showcases subscribers’ favorite hotels and resorts worldwide.

Auberge’s Napa Valley flagship Auberge du Soleil and its East Coast counterpart, The Inn at Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina, were voted No. 5 and No. 12 on the list of 20 Top U.S. Hideaways. All three Napa Valley resorts, Auberge du Soleil, Calistoga Ranch and Solage Calistoga, were ranked among the Top 20 Food and Wine Resorts worldwide.
