I was surprised and delighted to discover that the hype about Carmel-on-sea is true and then some - it really is the most amazingly picturesque,and romantic location imaginable. Our hotel, L'Auberge is a true gem, a beautifully restored and maintained European style boutique hotel, with rooms grouped around a Spanish style courtyard replete with outdoor seating, geraniums and gas heaters so guests can enjoy breakfast or cocktails outdoors even when the temperature drops. Our room was spacious, tastefully decorated, with a comfy king-sized bed and very spacious bathroom. The kind of room one can enjoy spending time in. And the public spaces, reek old worlde elegance and charm. We found the staff to be the ultimate professionals - attentive, solicitous and accommodating but unobtrusive. In short, L'Auberge, in the center of this beautifully preserved, European style village, replete with artisan stores and eateries, is the perfect place for a relaxing and/or romantic get-away, Less than an hour's flight from LA, we rediscovered simple pleasures like walking, fine wining and dining and some great buys from the Carmel's stylish and exclusive artisan stores.

Major renovations have transformed the hotel's 20 guest rooms, entrance and landscaped courtyard into a romantic Carmel setting. Luxuriously romantic, the Carmel hotel was created for adults to relax, rejuvenate and nurture relationships—the perfect Carmel escape getaway. The interior decor of guest rooms is rich and pleasing, warm jewel tones accent the quaint charm of the architecture. Individually designed guest rooms feature the finest fabrics and linens, enlarged bath areas with radiant floor heating, some with soaking tubs.
