  • Antiquing
Situated on a 20-acre private estate that sits high atop a hill, this villa is located in Santa Ynez, California and provides a breathtaking, 270-degree view of the entire Santa Ynez Valley below. Here, guests will find a picturesque countryside composed of rolling hills, verdant pastures, lush vineyards, and the rugged peaks of the Santa Ynez Mountains to the south and the San Rafael Mountains to the north.

Nestled deep inside Santa Barbara County’s wine country, the area abounds with wineries and wine tasting rooms, along with many fine-dining restaurants that take full advantage of the locally cultivated wines and produce. Nearby, Los Padres National Forrest offers nearly two million acres of woodlands and hiking trails, while Lake Cachuma provides ample opportunities for water sports. In the Santa Ynez Valley, guests will also find a number of antique stores, art galleries, and other tourist attractions, such as the Carriage Museum and the Maverick Saloon.

The location is about 20 minutes north of the Pacific Ocean, 40 minutes north of Santa Barbara, two hours north of Los Angeles, and four hours south of San Francisco. Easily accessible from California State Highways 154 and 246, it is the perfect California road trip destination, as well as a short drive away from the Santa Barbara Airport.
