Pope Valley has beautiful ranches and wide open spaces with lovely homes scattered about. Scenery reminds me of Jackson Hole, Wyoming – just gorgeous. Pope Valley is known for its skeet shooting, Fire Department’s annual Turkey shoot, and Aetna Springs Resort. Aetna Springs has been a resort for over 100 years. They recently built a new clubhouse and it has a nice new 9 hole golf course and usually no one is there! It feels like you are on your own private grounds. Pope Valley is located down in the valley to the north of Angwin and the east of Calistoga.
