A relaxing one-hour drive inland from Monterey, Carmel, Pacific Grove and Big Sur. From Carmel you would head east on Carmel Valley Road, past rolling hills, delightful restaurants, pastoral homes, vineyards and ranches.
Approaching from the valley, along Hwy 101, through the richest agricultural region in the state, either from Southern California or The Bay Area, we're roughly 15 miles west once you turn off the highway. Filled with many farmers markets, local vineyards on a scenic drive, under a wide expansive sky.
It is a unique and rare location, perfect for hiking in the Los Padres National Forest and Ventana wilderness, and swimming in the gorgeous, nearby Arroyo Seco River. The air is clean, the views are astounding, and the remarkable quiet heals the soul.
