Destination guide

For visitors of Solvang, Den-mark's the spot

Take a trip back in time to 19th-century Denmark with a Solvang vacation rental. Nestled in Southern California's Santa Ynez Valley, the fairytale-like village is modeled after a traditional Danish village, complete with windmills, half-timbered houses and a giant red clog (yes, a clog). Perfect for a romantic getaway or a family vacation, Solvang will transport you back to a simpler time. Wine lovers will appreciate the many wineries located in the area while sports enthusiasts will relish the idyllic golf courses and myriad bike routes.

Things to do

Wine, wheels, and windmills - what's not to love?

The picturesque village offers many dining experiences, from farm-to-table restaurants to traditional European bakeries (pro tip: try the Danish). Find your inner sommelier at the 20 downtown tasting rooms, or by exploring over 125 area wineries. The whole village itself is a Danish museum, with five windmills, traditional half-timbered architecture, a giant red clog, and the iconic Little Mermaid fountain. Dig a little deeper at the Elverhoj Museum of History & Art, or at the Hans Christian Andersen Museum. Motorcycle enthusiasts will love the Solvang Vintage Motorcycle Museum, while California history buffs will relish Old Mission Santa Ines.


It's (almost) always sunny in Solvang, California

You won't find yourself complaining about the weather too often at a Solvang vacation rental. Pleasant temperatures rule the day with highs rarely exceeding the upper 80s in the summer, and lows dropping down to only the 40s in the winter. Rain isn't much of a factor and there is never any concern for snow; it simply never gets that cold. Make sure to pack some sunblock for those clear, sunny California days, especially in the heat of the summer - you won't be able to handle the sun like those Pinot Noir grapes dangling off the vines.
