Tuscan style in California, the Pacific at your feet, and a Robert Trent Jones course outside your door: This American interpretation of the dolce vita is particularly successful between Los Angeles and San Diego. At Stonehill Tavern, created by celebrated designer Tony Chi, guests can choose from 500 bottles of top California wines from Sonoma and Napa. Spa Gaucin, on the other hand, features Mediterranean specialties, including a full body massage using Chardonnay oil. The golf course is one of the very few in California located directly on the coast. Hole 3, a short par 4, completely borders the Pacific. And players who would like to test the length of their drives can look forward to hole 7—a 612-yard par 5 monster with a double fairway. Those who still haven’t had enough of the water can take in the sunset while enjoying a plate of fresh seafood and listening to the surf at the Monarch Bay Club.
