A peaceful retreat untouched by development in southern Monterey County, located on 80 acres in the remote San Antonio Valley. A pastoral setting soothing to the spirit.

Rich in history, these mission grounds are a convergence of present and past, of cultural influences embedded in California’s fiber. Pause for a moment in the Plaza and listen for the voices of the past.

Perched on a hilltop overlooking the Monterey Bay Sanctuary, here is a place of contemplative tranquility. Santa Cruz is all around, but in this safe haven the noise of the City drifts away on a cool ocean breeze.
