Discover Mediterranean-style luxury with a distinctly SoCal feel.
Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains, Santa Barbara hit the geographical jackpot — and the city has made the most of its near-perfect location. From distinctive red-tiled roofs and bright pink bougainvilleas to pristine beaches and elegant restaurants, the city whispers understated luxury at every turn. Plus, there’s no bad time of year to visit the so-called American Riviera thanks to perennially sunny skies and a temperate climate — just one of the reasons major A-listers have made the coastal enclave home.
