Located in Del Mar, Les Artistes Inn provides a retreat from city life. A dozen rooms are named after famous artists, from Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin to Diego Rivera and Georgia O’Keeffe. Each draws inspiration from its namesake and has its own personality. The O’Keeffe room, for example, is decorated in the Santa Fe style to pay homage to Georgia’s famous New Mexico flower paintings, and a back deck provides garden views. The Monet room is appropriately designed in French country style and overlooks a pond. When booking, you can request the room that fits the ambience you’re looking for.
Relax in the sunny courtyard during the day or around the fire pit at night. You can also wander around the property admiring such architectural details as colorful mosaics, beautiful stonework, and hacienda-style tiles. Once you’re ready to venture into the real world, shops, dining spots, and beaches are all within walking distance.
