Home to the stunning Four Season’s Biltmore and the swanky Coral Casino, Montecito merges luxury with leisure. Butterfly Beach offers unmatched sunbathing, while Miramar Beach is a hot spot for stand-up paddling, and Hammonds draws long boarders and short boarders alike. From Coast Village Road to the Upper Village, Montecito is rife with sun-drenched restaurant patios, upscale bars, and boutiques. Venture away from the water into the wooded rolling hills and you’ll find marble palaces, picture-book-worthy Normandy-style castles, elegant Italian-style palazzos, gracious Cape Cod-inspired colonials, and regal English manor-style houses.
