Laguna Beach is one of California’s loveliest enclaves, with clement weather, excellent restaurants, and art events and festivals almost year-round. Tucked into woods thick with oaks, pines and eucalyptus above the Pacific, The Ranch at Laguna Beach (www.ranchlb.com; from $350)is the town’s first luxury resort to open in 13 years, thanks in part to the strict zoning and preservation laws that have kept the area so beautiful. The ranch retains the vibe of the homestead that stood here in the early 1900s, with low wood cottages, elegant Spanish-colonial furniture and tiles, and one of the largest organic gardens in southern Orange County (which in the Golden State is really saying something). Golfers will like the nine-hole course deftly engineered into the surrounding canyon, while sunbathers are just 350m from one of California’s best-loved beaches.
