Life In Montecito
Stretching from the sands of the Pacific to the verdant mountains of a National Forest, Montecito’s charms have seduced moguls, magnates and movie stars for over a hundred years. It is almost mysterious how their old and new grand estates and glorious villas lie hidden behind curtains of lush landscape allowing them to harmoniously blend with more moderate residences. Nature has played a vital role in the seduction by providing a backdrop of hot springs, cold springs, waterfalls, and stunning beaches. Luxury resorts blend seamlessly into the landscapes, looking more like estates themselves. The business district is divided into two quaint villages. The Upper and Lower Villages offer outstanding shopping and dining opportunities for those who have come to expect the best.
