Carmel-by-the-Sea California

L’Auberge Carmel

It was in front of the stunning scenery of Big Sur that Henry Miller said that he learnt to pray. To take the time to meditate in front of the immensity of these cliffs which seem to plunge down into the ocean- the little village of artists of Carmel-by-the-Sea is the ideal base.

Halfway between San Francisco and the coast of Santa Barbara- inhabited by seals- whales and other marine mammals- the village – where Clint Eastwood was once mayor – will charm you with its many art galleries and pebble beaches.

La Playa Carmel Hotel California

La Playa Carmel is a 75-room historic luxury boutique hotel, newly restored to preserve its turn-of-the-century charm while updating it to modern-day standards. Located two blocks from the beach and village shops, art galleries and restaurants, the hotel is situated in the heart of Carmel and anchors its most prestigious residential neighborhood.
