Carmel Valley in California is a sublime pastoral river valley nestled into the towering Santa Lucia range, and is one of the finest wine growing regions in California. The main artery is Carmel Valley Road, which starts at Scenic Highway 1 and meanders eastward, winding along Carmel River past endless opportunities for recreation, entertainment, sumptuous food and premier wine tasting. In Carmel Valley you will also find three championship golf courses, several world-class resorts as well as quaint country inns.

Carmel Valley is home to Garland Ranch Regional Park's 4,000+ acres, open for day-use activities, known for excellent mountain trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding along the willow-lined banks of the Carmel River. In Carmel Valley one sees working horse ranches, many offering clinics and places to board your own horses.

Thirteen miles up Carmel Valley from Highway 1 is the quiet country Carmel Valley Village with its fine dining, wine tasting, antique shops and art galleries. This is where folk singer Joan Baez led the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s and 1970s from her nearby Miramonte ranch. Celebrities galore have visited the Carmel Valley dating back to the 1890s when the Del Monte Lodge used the old Rancho Los Laureles as a guest lodge. Some live there now, such as Betty White and Doris Day.


Until WWII, many millionaire sportsmen built mansions in the Carmel Valley and invited their Hollywood friends to hunt boar in the hills, play polo and golf, and attend horse shows and fiestas. Now, many Fortune 500 and other business titans come to Carmel Valley for the seclusion its hills have to offer.

"Sunny" Carmel Valley enjoys moderately warm temperatures year round, with an average high of 71 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer, 61 in the winter, and 78 in September and October (Indian Summer--the best weather of the year). Carmel Valley has earned its "Sunny" name because its neighbors to the west, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Pacific Grove, and Monterey tend to get foggy (much like San Francisco weather).

There are many golf, tennis, riding, hiking, biking opportunities. Seniors love the mild climate and short drives to a variety of restaurants, shopping and senior facilities.
