ROMANTIC RETREAT / B&B - Southern Calif.
(Property location is approximate)
Additional Location Information
The Chianti Life Retreat, offering private massages, Reki Energy Healing, Yoga classes, Meditation sessions, Acupuncture, and private dining, is located ten minutes from the ocean between Malibu and Santa Monica in gorgeous Southern California. We are in a canyon once inhabited by the Native American indigenous Tongva tribe that later became a weekend getaway in the 1920’s for Hollywood stars with many cottages built for that purpose. Over the years our canyon has attracted many famous artists, actors, and musicians such as Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Etta James, the Beach Boys, Will Geer, Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, Della Reese and Burl Ives, to name a few.
We have the 3rd largest watershed entering the Santa Monica Bay, which is a spawning ground for steelhead trout. We have our own outdoor Shakespeare theater with seats built into the canyon walls and plays performed under the stars. Request a picnic and we’ll pack one for you; Price upon request.
The Chianti Life Retreat is within a 3-5 minute walk to one of the largest open space preserves surrounded by a city in the world with streams, waterfall, and cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean and a view of the mountains, offering miles of bike and hiking trails, or a 2 minute drive to adorable boutiques, bistros and our own farmer’s market held every Friday. The Retreat is surrounded by thirty-five old California oaks, several fruit trees, 85 old fashioned roses, pathways, walkways and foot bridges, intermingled with a lovely spring-fed creek that runs through the middle of the property. We have a beautiful large dining bridge complete with a fireplace stocked with wood, and willow seating with pillows and blankets to curl up in under the stars. We offer private dinners on the bridge completely custom to each couple or group; price upon request; Reservations must be made and paid for 7 days in advance. All food is organic and freshly made on the premises, including the breads and pastries at breakfast. The private dinners offer a choice of French or Italian cuisine with 4-6 courses for the French and 4-8 courses for the Italian. Breakfast is served free of charge on the private deck outside the master suite.
We offer private Yoga and Meditation sessions, as well as many different modalities of private massage therapy on the expansive, private decking that surrounds this unique retreat. Please request at time of booking; price upon request.
We are a short 15 minute drive to Malibu & Santa Monica and 30 minutes to Beverly Hills, offering extraordinary beaches and water sports, or exclusive dining and shopping. A 1 ½ hour drive south to Orange county (depending on traffic) will take you to Disneyland, 40 minutes to Knott’s Berry Farm, or 30 minutes to Universal Studios in Universal City.
