California dreaming on a winter’s day? We don’t blame you. This extraordinary state is home to the iconic cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco, the Big Sur and Yosemite. The nature is extraordinary and, in many parts, the living is easy. Stay in a California villa or an apartment with Holiday Lettings.
On The Road Again
All-American road trips don’t get much better than this. If you’re after picture-perfect coastal views, drive down Highway 1 from San Francisco to LA. You’ll encounter the Big Sur (a la Jack Kerouac), and it’s a feast for the eyes and the senses. Just make sure you factor in some time for stops along the way: these are vistas you won’t be able to resist. Equally, travel along Route 66 and you’ll experience every type of Californian landscape: desert, vineyards, city and sea.
Wining & Dining
As the provider of most of America’s fresh produce, California is a culinary destination in its own right. The farm-to-table scene is big here, as is veganism and all things clean eating. But fear not: the food America’s famous for is plentiful, too. Traditional diners are dotted around the state and the burgers are succulent. Astonishingly, California also produces 90% of the nation’s wine-making grapes. If you can make it to Napa Valley, home to sprawling vineyards and country wonders, you won’t regret it.
While adored for a plethora of things, California’s beaches are particularly special. If you’re in Los Angeles, head to Santa Monica, a beachside city with plenty of soul. Further north, the beaches of Monterey and Santa Barbara are both charming and full of things to do. But really? They’re all brilliant. You can even go for a night-time swim (the water will still be warm, we promise!) and bathe in the moonlight.

Ocean Beach Sunset Cottage
First time in San Diego

Spacious Private Tahoe Studio
What an area to explore the mountains, the walks by the river, the woods.
I'd like to say this was a terrible place to stay but it wasn't. i'd like to keep the place a secret but that wouldn't be fair to Matt & Mary.
Wonderful hosts nothing too much for them to sort if only it was where to walk and about life in general. or borrowing a screwdriver to try and fix a hinge on a door.
Well appointed studio apartment with more than one could require to stay and be comfortable.
One small criticism would be that the bed needs a headboard but minor detail and it would probably spoil a view to the woods.
If we get the chance we will be back again. …
