Nestled in a picturesque valley, surrounded by scenic hills and aromatic orchards, Ojai, California is brimming with small town charm and creativity. The secluded hideaway is just 75 miles north of Los Angeles and located in Ventura County, which was recently named "The Most Desirable Place to Live in America" by The Washington Post. Downtown, the village is filled with locally owned boutiques, wine tasting rooms, art galleries and cafes found nowhere else in the world. Ojai offers guests an idyllic environment to explore the outdoors, with opportunities to horseback ride, mountain bike, hike, play tennis or golf. The year-round Mediterranean climate of the Ojai Valley is optimal for growing organic produce, and much of these locally grown ingredients are celebrated in the creative cuisine at Ojai's bistros, award-winning restaurants and tasting rooms.
