From Malibu to the Santa Barbara Harbor, Solana’s unparalleled vantage point offers mesmerizing vistas.
To the south, Solana presides over unprecedented views of the Pacific Ocean and Channel Island. Miles of shoreline endlessly delight the eyes and replenish the soul. More ancient than the mountains, and yet in a continuous state of evolution, the power of the sea has been an undeniable force since the beginning of time. From Malibu to the Santa Barbara Harbor, Solana’s unparalleled vantage point offers mesmerizing vistas.
At Solana’s northern frontier, the Santa Ynez mountains wait quietly in repose. A stoic counterpoint to Solana’s lush environment, the foothills provide a weighty anchor and an incredible canvas for the nightly sunset frescos. The interplay between the waning light and landscape’s natural texture makes for some of the most majestic crepuscular experiences in the world.
To the south and west, Solana overlooks Santa Barbara, The American Riveria. When Solana was originally developed and before Hollywood was “Hollywood,” Santa Barbara, then home to Flying A Studios, was known as the film capital of the world. For nearly a decade, Flying A produced over 1,200 features, many of which were filmed in Santa Barbara. Though the glitz and glamour of the movie industry have long since journeyed to Los Angeles, Santa Barbara remains a muse to those looking for an enviable lifestyle. Having grown into a vibrant city known for its natural beauty, arts, culture, restaurants, wine and year-round perfect climate. Each night Santa Barbara’s Riveria and harbor lights softly illuminate the hillside creating an adoring audience for the region’s true star: Solana.
To the east, Solana overlooks the Montecito Valley, the graceful curve of the foothills and ultimately the endless sea. A visual amuse-bouche, the eastern sightlines epitomize everything that defines Solana in one incredible scene.
