Santa Barbara

With lush emerald-green vineyards, miles of golden sands, and charming historic sites, Santa Barbara is a delightful, laidback city with superb restaurants, galleries and access to more active pursuits. A favoured retreat for the starlets of Hollywood’s golden era, it still oozes a certain movie star glamour in strikingly beautiful surrounds.

The city’s historic sites revolve around the Spanish Mission Church, while strolling the streets and interspersing sightseeing with delicious dishes and fine wine is a suitably relaxed way to discover the city. Blow away the cobwebs with a horseback ride along the beach or take to the skies to view the rolling vineyards from a light aircraft.
