California: Carmel-By-The-Sea

Carmel-by-the-Sea is nestled among sloping forests above a rugged cypress-covered coastline. The charming village is renowned for its magical seaside location with a quaint mixture of art galleries, boutiques, historic inns, cafes and whimsical cottages; all surrounded by breathtaking scenery.>

You will find fairy-tale-style homes all over Carmel thanks to Hugh Comstock. He built dozens of charming homes around Carmel that make you believe you have stepped into a make-believe world.

Lush cottage gardens and attractive landscaping surround many of these storybook creations and help them blend into their natural environment.

Fences come to life with an abundant array of vibrant flowers and foliage. Carmel is full of many colorful courtyards.
