A charming and intimate Relais & Chateaux hotel in the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea

The Atmosphere

L’Auberge Carmel feels like the sort of hotel that you might expect to find in the square of a small French town and has all the character you would expect from a Relais & Chateaux property.

Set around a pretty courtyard, the inn perfectly blends old world charm with modern creature comforts. Minutes from the beach as well as the galleries, restaurants, and shops of Carmel, it is perfectly located to explore the area.

Your Room

The hotel’s twenty rooms are extremely comfortable and tastefully decorated. In fitting with the rest of the inn, expect a more traditional style with muted colors, thick carpets and french windows. Each room showcases original black and white photography from celebrated local Helmut Horn.

Need to Know

The hotel’s restaurant, Aubergine, with only eight tables, is intimate and cozy. Choose from either the set menu or take the plunge with the eight-course tasting option; both offer sophisticated fare made with locally sourced ingredients.
