We had a great time at Least Petit Chateau.

Great vacation. House was beautiful, the backyard and deck felt private even with neighbors. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was great. I would recommend it and would stay here again.

Awesome stay at Le Petit Chateau

My son and grandsons stayed at Le Petit Chateau with their two little dogs for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. As Grandma, I came up for one night and found a beautiful family friendly home that made our time together extra special. The house was clean, well stocked, close to a great beach, with plenty of room for all of us. Thank you for making your home available to us!

Santa Barbara Polo Club
Santa Barbara, California, is well-known for its sunny and mild Mediterranean-like climate, chic dining, shopping districts and gorgeous coastline and mountains. But what many tourists may not know is that deep in the heart of the city’s posh ...culture lies a love for the ancient sport of polo. Steeped in history, the “game of kings” is the highlight of summer and fall at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club, which hosts matches on weekends from May through early October.

If you always wanted to go on a whale-watching tour, there’s no better place to do it than Santa Barbara. Santa Barbara whale-watching season is pretty much anytime of year. But there is one caveat.

The Restaurant Guy's Santa Barbara Recommendations
November 10, 2016 The A-team at Good Bar has put their best fall foot forward, offering half a dozen sippers for everyone. Sweet Corn is the winning ingredient in PILGRIMAGE SOUTH, a blend of Herradura Reposado, sweet corn, creme de cacao, fresh lime, chocolate ...bitters and egg white. The result is a colorful and velvety rich drink worth coming in for. The funky and fresh EJECTION SEAT consists of High West double rye, Damoiseau 110 Rhum, Amaro Lucano, green tea pineapple gomme, fresh lime, cinnamon syrup, and tiki bitters, while the GUN FOR HIRE awakens your palate with black cardamom infused Bombay Sapphire, Creme de Noyeaux, cardamaro aromatized wine, sasparilla and angostura bitters.

Santa Barbara Travel Guide
December 11, 2016 The city calls itself the American Riviera, and if you travel to Santa Barbara you'll see why: This central coast city, which sits on an idyllic stretch of coastline and is sheltered by the foothills of the Santa Ynez mountains, has a ...Mediterranean-like climate and a civility that feels downright European. In fact, it once was European: the Spanish settled the city in the 1600s, and the Mission Santa Barbara is still one of the city's most treasured landmarks. Given the city's sophisticated charm—and high prices—many celebrities have made a Santa Barbara visit over the years, from Charlie Chaplin, who built a hotel, to Oprah Winfrey, who has a house nearby.
