South of the Monterey Peninsula, about 18 miles along a spectacular drive on Highway One is Big Sur with its scenic peaks and quiet canyons along the blue Pacific. This breathtakingly rugged coastline area has long been a refuge for artists and writers, with majestic scenery appealing to everyone who admires the magnificence of nature.
Here are rustic inns, renowned restaurants and two luxurious hotels, Ventana and the Post Ranch Inn, each situated in a serene envelope of hills and trees overlooking the vast ocean. Homes here are often contemporary, built of stone and wood, with walls of glass to capture the views.
Here are homes for sale throughout the Big Sur region.
