Relais & Châteaux Property Spotlight: L'Auberge Carmel

California’s beautiful Carmel-by-the-Sea has long inspired artists and welcomed celebrities. And one of their favorite places to relax is this historic Relais & Châteaux property, located just four blocks from famous Carmel Beach and an easy stroll to the village’s numerous art galleries, shops and restaurants.

Built in 1929, this European-style luxury hotel is luxuriously romantic. L' Auberge Carmel was created for adults to relax, rejuvenate and nurture relationships in a perfect escape getaway. Individually designed guestrooms feature the finest fabrics and linens, as well as enlarged bath areas with radiant floor heating, some with soaker tubs. It is one of Carmel’s few full-service luxury hotels, offering valet parking, room service and highly personalized guest services, such as the special packages that have guests cooking with executive chef Justin Cogley or picnicking around Big Sur.
