A beautiful European-style Relais & Chateaux property, L’Auberge Carmel, was built in 1929 and most recently renovated in 2004 and 2011. Located in the centre of Carmel-by-the-Sea, this picturesque property offers only 20 guest rooms spread throughout the pretty building with a brick courtyard at the centre.
King and Queen Rooms have a walk-in shower, flat screen television, iPod music system, bathroom floor heating, complimentary wireless and plenty of old-style charm. Guests can enjoy in-room massages and spa treatments and the delights of the Aubergine restaurant where cooking classes can be taken. Aubergine is a 12 table restaurant serving modern Californian cuisine made with local produce. The underground wine cellar at the restaurant houses 4,500 wine bottles, many of which are from the Monterey area and France. A few streets away lies the sister restaurant, Cantinetta Luca, where guests can enjoy Italian cuisine and in-house produced bread, pastas, cheeses and salami.
L’Auberge Carmel is located just four blocks away from Carmel Beach and guests can enjoy wandering through the boutiques and art galleries of this quaint town.
