Your stay at Provence Villa will make you feel as if you took a trip to Southern France rather than Santa Barbara. Surrounded by lush landscape, hundred year old oak trees, olive trees, hydrangeas and expansive patios, this lovely home offers peace and privacy seated well off the road.  The artistic and thoughtful details create a comfortable and warm environment perfect for rest and relaxation. The beautiful beamed ceilings and numerous French doors throughout the home bring the outdoors in!

On the main level, there is a seamless flow from the game room (pool table & movie screen) to the cook’s fully-stocked gourmet kitchen, including a large kitchen island for gathering with friends and family or just spreading out the Sunday Times… Though all the modern conveniences are included, they are designed to blend into the flawless decor.

The bedrooms are located on the private second story, including a romantic master suite with stone fireplace and views of the Santa Ynez Mountains. Upstairs, you will also find a relaxing sitting room, two additional bedrooms, all giving you the feeling you are sleeping amongst the trees! Additionally, there is a separate, private and spacious guest apartment.

Within the thoughtfully landscaped grounds of mature oaks and verdant lawns, under the ubostructed star-studded sky, you will find for your enjoyment a detached climate controlled wine cellar and a beautiful in ground spa.  Come enjoy the beautiful Santa Barbara stone spa which is now in and landscaped offering unobstructed star studded night sky views.

This Montecito home is reminiscent of a European country home, similar to those found in Provence or Tuscany.  It is located in a neighborhood long coveted for its privacy while also convenient to the heart of Montecito¹s “Upper Village”, “The Ranch”, the San Ysidro hiking trails and only five minutes from the beach!  There is also an historical retreat down the road if you are interested in yoga, meditation or just a beautiful walk.  If you listen very carefully you might possibly hear their chimes.

Sleeps 4 to 6 comfortably.  Bienvenue!
