Property description

Wine Country living at its best! Comfortable elegance awaits. We enjoy our wine country life and would like to share it with you! Our two-bedroom, two-bath cottage sits in front of our CCOF certified organic syrah vines with its own private bocce ball court! Enjoy the setting of our vineyard right out the french doors or from the upstairs deck. A short stroll or ride on our complimentary cruisers, will take you to the heart of the historic charming town of Los Olivos; where you can enjoy over 30 tasting rooms, shops, and restaurants. Both of our Wine Country Retreats are on our private property where peace and tranquility await. Great care goes into making our guests' stay comfortable and relaxing. Luxurious bedding with down comforters and pillows, bath robes, and locally crafted bath products made from gravesides from our vineyard, are just a few of the amenities you will find at the Winery and Vineyard Retreats at Bernat. If you picture yourself coming home to a comfortable well-appointed wine country cottage after a fun day of touring Santa Barbara wine country, playing a game of bocce ball while watching the sunset over the vineyard and oak studded hills, then you'll love the Bernat Winery Retreat!

If you are one couple using one bedroom the nightly rate is: $300 (Sun.-Thurs.) and $350 (weekends and holidays). The rate for 4 persons is: $400 (Sun.-Thurs) and $450 (weekends and holidays).

You don't have to purchase a ticket to Italy to experience wine country living at it's best!

Also on our property is our popular one-bedroom, one-bath, Vineyard Retreat (VRBO #346902 ).

Los Olivos and Surrounding Area: The 20+ tasting rooms, galleries, and restaurants, of our quaint little town, are a 10 minute walk (20 minute stroll) or a short bike ride away. We also offer complimentary cruisers. Our kitchen is fully equipped for cooking, there is a little market down the street (5 minute stroll). But with the world class dining available in our area you might not want to boil water.
The Santa Ynez Valley comprises the danish town of Solvang, the western themed town of Santa Ynez, Ballard, Buellton, and Los Olivos. Aside from tasting the many vintages of the Santa Barbara County wines the valley offers; biking, horseback riding (in fact, if you have a horse and want to bring them, we have room for two), hiking, fishing, live theatre, movie theatre, shopping, festivals, surfing and much more. Santa Barbara is a 40 minute drive and the beach is only 30 minutes.
If you only stay two nights, you'll wish you have stayed more!
