Hello! Our #travelwithkayu series is back and this time we’re headed to Carmel, California for a cozy weekend away with travel writer, Dulci Edge of The Far & Near.
Where to stay
L’Auberge Carmel is a luxe Relais & Chateaux property with an unbeatable in-town location walking distance from shops and restaurants. The courtyard is the perfect spot for afternoon cocktails.
Outside of town, Bernardus Lodge & Spa is a splurge, but worth it for a weekend of pampering. The gardens are beautifully landscaped and the spa is top notch.
Where to eat
La Bicyclette is a favorite for crisp wood-fired pizzas. Don’t miss brunch; the eggs are baked in a wood oven and absolutely delicious!
Casanova is my favorite for a romantic dinner. Get the gnocchi!
Seventh & Dolores is a modern steak house in an airy, loft-like space.
What to do
There are plenty of tasting rooms sprinkled throughout Carmel: some of my favorites are Scheid Vineyards and De Tierra.
Book a spa treatment at Bernardus or Carmel Valley Ranch.
Check out the famed aquarium in nearby Monterey.
