    Signature

    We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

    Bistro

    These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Discover the Golden State coast

California combines rolling landscapes of tidy vineyards with backdrops of golden hillocks and the many hues of the Pacific Ocean, making it a great place for adventurers! Scenic bike routes wind through small towns and meandering walking trails exist only a few hours from bustling cities. On this West Coast exploration, you’ll spot elephant seals lounging in Ano Nuevo State Park, gain behind the scenes access to the world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium, horseback ride through the lush, rolling hills of Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez, and explore the Channel Islands by kayak. Welcome to the Golden State!
