Luxury California Coast Vacation Homes

Santa Barbara and Carmel-By-The-Sea

Hugged by the mountains, kissed by the sea. 

That's how I describe the beautiful California coastline. After living and working in Europe for many years I chose to settle in California because of it's similarity to the climate and terrane along the mediterranean. I love nothing more than finding properties that have amazing potential to renovate and decorate, using pieces from the time I imported antiques from France for my shop in Washington DC. 

If you're planning to visit California and drive along the spectacular coastline, I recommend you explore the two charming towns of Carmel-By-The-Sea and Santa Barbara. The climate is sunny and mild year round. The food is

superb, the beaches are inviting and the vibe is relaxed. I invite you to stay at one or more of my European country homes along the way. Please click the tabs above to see Maison Provence, Pussy Willow Cottage and Dove Cottage.
